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

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.

Avani+ Hua Hin Resort

When I arrived at Avani+ Hua Hin on Sunday evening, the sky had already darkened. I came to a halt as I came across a crowded parking area where some guests were leaving for dinner. Thanks to the Rao Tiew Duay Kan (We Travel Together) campaign, this elegant yet sleek resort has become one of the most popular weekend escapes for families and vacationers to enjoy the fresh cool breeze of the Gulf of Thailand during winter.

The Standard, Hua Hin

Confronting upside-down characters on a curved granite wall, I pondered whether I had fallen down the rabbit hole. Never had I come across a hotel that unconventionally upends its name. Surrounded by leafy trees and chirping birds, The Standard, Hua Hin, invites vacationers to discover a treasure trove of paraphernalia.

Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit

On a rainy Sunday afternoon two weeks ago I -- a lone traveller -- was checking into the Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit when I saw other guests casually parade into the hotel, which provided hope of economic recovery.
