Relax aching muscles at Meliá Chiang Mai

From Jan 1 to March 31, YHI Spa is offering the 90-minute "Spa Indulgence" treatment for a special price of 2,000 baht net per person, down from the normal price of 2,800 baht.

Emirates expands Bangkok services
Emirates recently announced adding a fourth flight between Bangkok and Dubai from Jan 1, boosting connectivity between the two gateways and providing more options for travellers.
The additional frequency will help serve the increased demand for international travel to and from Bangkok, as Thailand's travel and tourism sector experience a steep revival. It also builds on the success of Emirates' existing operations, as the airline reaffirms its recent Memorandum of Co-operation with the Tourism Authority of Thailand to leverage Emirates' vast global network to boost inbound traffic.
The additional Emirates flight will be operated by the airline's flagship Airbus A380. Emirates' flight EK374 -- operated by a three-class configuration -- will depart Dubai at 10.35pm, arriving in Bangkok at 7.35am the following day. Emirates' return flight EK377 -- operated by a two-class configuration -- will leave Bangkok at 2am, arriving in Dubai at 6am.
With 28 weekly flights to Bangkok and 14 weekly flights to Phuket, Emirates offers travellers flexible and enhanced connections between Thailand and Dubai, as well as onwards to 130 destinations across 6 continents. Emirates also operates a daily direct flight to Hong Kong from Bangkok.
