Much like New York City, space is a real commodity, and hotels rooms, even the 4 and 5-star high rise hotels, in the downtown business district of Bangkok are often quite small. We however have contracts with several hotels that have very spacious rooms. We have secured some of the best 5 star hotels in the country. Our package provides for deluxe class rooms but these hotels also have executive accommodations, as well as, large multi room suites for those clients who prefer more spacious and luxurious accommodations.
The hotels we use in Pattaya Beach are classified as 5-star accommodations. We choose them largely based on their proximity to where the “action” is and also based on our past good experiences with them.
The hotels we use in Chiang Mai are classified as 5-star accommodations. We choose them largely based on the convenience of their location to the sights we what to see and their comfort level for our clients. Cambodia (Add-On Package): The hotels we use for the United Nations world heritage tour of Ankor Wat are all 5-star boutique hotels in the city of Siam Reap.
Daytime activities during our stay are typical of many tourists that visit Thailand. We’ll do a city tour using the various methods of transportation that include the Skytrain, tour buses, and riverboat. We will visit many of the great golden temples and the Royal Grand Palace of the King as well as both the ancient old capitol city and the new gleaming modern shopping districts of this vast metropolis. We will go Elephant Trekking, visit a sanctuary where you can pet Bengal Tiger cubs, fee wild crocodiles, and shake hands with orangutans. Of course no visit to Bangkok would be complete without visiting the red light district it is so famous for, and we will get traditional Thai massages for only $8 per hour as well as many other spa services for pennies on the dollar.
The nightlife in Thailand is wonderfully bizarre, classically outrageous and by far unrivaled by any place on earth. We will take you to all the best night clubs, beer bars, Discos, Go-Go clubs, and strip clubs which have shows that will either offend you or they will astound you. In either case you won’t believe what you see. We will also take you to some of the best theater shows in the country.
Thailand is a country where your dollar goes extremely far. There are two reasons for this. First is that every US dollar is equivalent to approximately 28-35 (depending on market) Thai dollars or unit of currency called the Thai “Baht”. Second is that certain items in Thailand are produced there by hand and the wages are very, very low. For example, Thailand is known for the finest silk in the world. The silk worms are farmed and the material is loomed by hand. Hence you can buy HAND TAILORED CUSTOM MADE SUITS, SHIRTS AND TIES, (for both ladies and men) in the latest fashions for NEXT TO NOTHING. We have relationships with the best tailors in Thailand and will connect you with them.
Thailand is also known for the highest quality GEMSTONES in the world (except for emeralds-Columbia holds that distinction) and labor being cheap there, they are cut and ground at a very low cost and therefore can be purchased at ridiculously low prices. For example; you can purchase a 40 carat amethyst of exceptional color, for about 1/10 of what it would cost you on Jewelers Row in NYC or Philadelphia. We have ongoing relationships with the largest jewelry and gemstone manufacturer IN THE WORLD.
There are many other commodities that are available in Thailand that can be purchased at huge discounts over import stores in the states. Things like GOLD INLAID LACQUER items from nick-knacks to furnishings for your home. All kinds of 14, 18 and 24 carat gold JEWELRY at huge discounts over the states. Silks in every imaginable form, like tapestries, scarves, and wall hangings. We are in excellent standing with many vendors mainly because we have resident staff that live there, speak the language, and know the culture of the vendors. This insures your purchases are not rip offs and are the best deal that can be made.
