Travel In Style To Thailand

TRAVEL-IN-STYLE-TO-THAILAND-BLOG-ABOUT-DESIGN (ABOVE) The Peninsula Bangkok hotel is one of the best places you can stay when visiting the city. The hotel is definitely a five-star experience. This photograph is a dream. Just picture yourself experiencing the pool and the views of the city. The hotel’s design is very old world meets modern.

Pack your bags, we’re going to Thailand! Thailand has to be one of the most incredible countries in the world. Its white sand beaches, clear blue water, bustling cities, incredible food, architecture, and culture; make Thailand a phenomenal place to experience what Asia has to offer. Looking through photographs of Thailand literally transported me to the country. The photographs of Thailand’s temples were impressive. The shear details and craftsmanship of these temples is bar none. If you’re going to Thailand not for the temples, but for the beaches you won’t be disappointed. The water is clear blue, and you can walk far out into the ocean and the water will only come up to your waist (within reason)! Foodies, be warned! Thai cuisine is rich in spices and very aromatic. Thai cuisine isn’t about simplicity, but rather about juggling different flavors and bringing them together in perfect harmony.

Thailand is a country rich in history and culture. If you’re going to Thailand expect the unexpected and allow yourself to try something new. Whether it be experiencing a unique dish or exploring a temple or cave, Thailand is your gateway to the Asian continent. What do you think of Thailand? Have you been here before? Let me know in the comments. I love hearing from you!

BLOG-ABOUT-DESIGN-THAILAND-MAXI-FASHION-OCEAN (ABOVE) When in Thailand a Maxi dress is a must. It’s the perfect chic, comfortable piece. Wear a maxi over a bathing suit, or wear it to dinner. I love the open back. Get a maxi here:

BLOG-ABOUT-DESIGN-POOL-THAILAND (ABOVE) This pool area is incredible. It’s both lush and private. I really like the pagoda area adjacent the pool. It keeps in line with the classic architecture in Thailand, but still feels contemporary.

THAILAND-BLOG-ABOUT-DESIGN-FOOD (ABOVE) Food is a huge part of the Thai culture. Food in Thailand is full of spices. Thai food pushes the envelope with different elements and flavors that come together in perfect harmony.

BLOG-ABOUT-DESIGN-THAILAND-BANGKOK (ABOVE) The Wat Phra Kaew is an 18th century Buddhist temple. It’s widely regarded as the most sacred temple in Thailand. I’m so impressed by the details of the temple.

    The water at Koh Lipe is breath takingly beautiful. The bluest water I have ever experienced was the Carribean at Grand Caymen and Jamaica. I love the beach and water.
