Chiva-Som Hua Hin

After hours, I switched off the computer and left my cubicle. When I looked out the office's window, I saw high-rise buildings and winding motorways. Cars were stuck in a traffic jam day in, day out. It dawned on me that something was missing in life. I did not know what it was, but I would like to sort out my mind. A few days later, I took a break and left the city for a tranquil retreat.

Le Méridien Bangkok

My primary doubt as I was checking into Le Méridien Bangkok two weeks ago was whether the stay would be worth writing about.

Avani + Khao Lak Resort

After a 60-minute drive from Phuket International Airport to the new Avani + Khao Lak Resort, I arrived in time to take in the colours of twilight. As the Sun set over Phangnga's horizon, the sky began to transition from a bright blue to pink and orange shade.

My Beach Resort Phuket

A yacht fleet was drifting leisurely in Chalong Bay as storm clouds were gathering when I arrived at My Beach Resort Phuket. I lounged to enjoy the nice sea breeze that flowed over the lobby. My Beach Resort Phuket has been designated as a beachfront boutique resort in Michelin Guide, featuring sea view rooms that provide a stunning sunset.

Dewa Phuket Resort and Villas

It was sprinkling when I traversed a narrow lane from Dewa Phuket Resort and Villas to beautiful Nai Yang Beach in the late afternoon. The earthy scent assaulted my nose as the rain clouds swept over the sky, set against the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea and a white sand beach. This scene seemed like it came straight out of a painting depicting a romantic holiday during the rainy season.

Best Western Premier Bayphere Pattaya

As the sun shone through the deep mangrove jungle canopy, I walked down a long wooden bridge between Best Western Premier Bayphere Pattaya and the pristine Na Jomtien beach and enjoyed the gentle breeze. Looking around, other vacationers were showing off their surfing talent and small eateries enticed families with fresh seafood options.

Centara Grand Mirage Beach Resort Pattaya

It was a relaxing evening when I wandered down the pristine Wong Amat beach. The Sun sank over North Pattaya's horizon and the azure skies began to turn pink and orange as a brisk sea wind swept through. This looked to be a reward for vacationers staying at Centara Grand Mirage Beach Resort Pattaya.

So Sofitel Hua Hin

An enormous white rabbit-like sculpture stands in the middle of a green courtyard with its hands clutching a clock, implying that time has stopped and we are about to be lost in the realm of imagination upon entering.

Centara Reserve Samui

When I arrived at Centara Reserve Samui, the Gulf of Thailand's brilliant turquoise sea was set against a dramatic background of bright blue skies and the pure white Chaweng beach. It was a sunny morning, but the fresh sea breeze kept me cool and relaxed.
