Winter wonderlands

If you haven't noticed, there's only a little over a month left for 2020 to end. This also means cooler weather all over the country and along with that comes a slew of festivals making good use of the cool breeze that makes walking outside more delightful and less of a workout. A number of these events take place outside the city, which means even cooler temperatures and breezes accompanied by fantastic views of nature. These events are a great way to enjoy the "winter season" and serve as a reminder that we've made it through 2020 so we've all earned ourselves a bit of time to enjoy what these festivals have to offer.

Long Beach Chalet Hotel Koh Lanta

Orange skies and verdant dreams

A row boat approached the pier at Ban Thung Yi Peng (also spelled Ban Thung Yee Pheng) on Koh Lanta Yai in Krabi. Lining both sides of the waterway are dense mangrove forests. This is thanks to the efforts of the Community Based Tourism Club of Ban Thung Yi Peng, which has helped protect and replant mangrove trees for almost 20 years.

A royal connection

Staycations are the in thing, especially with the no travel ban. Though most of us choose not to stay in Bangkok, sometimes it's best to stay in the familiarity of a city we know so well. Spoilt for choice, I decided on The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel.
