Thailand

Travel the klongs of Bangkok’s Chao Phraya River aboard a colorful long-tail, visit the awe inspiring Reclining Buddha and Royal Palace, swing by Jim Thompson House to savor the beautiful silks, as well as a hint of intrigue, then end your day with a perfectly chilled martini at Mandarin Oriental’s famed Bamboo Bar.Recharge in a tented camp in the exotic Golden Triangle bordering Myanmar and Laos to the north or bask in the joy of one among many elephant conservation preserves that dot this fertile land.

Sukhothai’s thirteen century Wat Si Chum Temple is steeped in the history that is now Thailand. And, finally, after a serious day of temple exploration, the melodious croaking of unseen frogs residing in lilly pounds everywhere will lull you into a deep sleep.

Further south, Andaman Sea’s serene coastline from Phuket to Krabi can easily lure one into a do-nothing-at-all state of mind.  Still, I suggest a late morning sail to an uninhabited island for a private beach picnic and an afternoon of exploring the underwater caves.

If “making merit” is your thing, feel free to visit a variety of Buddhist temples from north to south, but don’t forget about fishing the Andaman for black crabs, exploring the food stalls of Hua Hin, or painting with an elephant outside of Chiang Mai. Thailand never leaves us wanting anything more than a longer stay!
