DusitD2 Khao Yai: Romance in the Hills

Anantara Vacation Club: Prestige on Chiang Mai’s River Ping

We started the day in a cramped wooden hut in Thailand’s Phayao province, waking at 04:10 AM to views over the Thai-Lao borders.

Next Level Hospitality at Marriott Queen’s Park

It is often a worry with hotel reviews that we may fail to find more to add to past experiences, almost expecting a copy and paste from past accommodations. Yet here, at Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, we find the complete opposite, as we are almost overwhelmed by the scale of what the hotel has to offer. …

Romantic Escapes in Koh Chang (Thailand)

My first ever visit to Koh Chang was back in 2004, when KC Resort was merely 150 Baht beach bungalows, and White Sands beach was still relatively undeveloped. But these days are no more as the main beach stretches of White Sands, Kai Bae and Lonely Beach, are now cluttered, touristy and over-priced. So we …
