Bucket List Weekend

in Chiang Rai
While Thailand boasts incredible beaches
and summer-loving weather, a different
adventure awaits once you head north to
Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp
and Resort for a true once-in-a-lifetime
treat. Chiang Rai is a short flight from
Bangkok and is situated at the intersection
of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar, and
Anantara is its must-visit locale. From the
incredible food (don’t skimp on the
side-of-the-road pineapple for a refreshing
treat) to the temples to the stunning view
from your Anantara villa, every moment
is extraordinary. But of course, the most
amazing part is spending time with
Anantara’s rescued elephants. Walk
alongside the gentle giants at sunrise
and watch them frolic in the water for
an encounter you’ll never forget.

Bangkok Bling
Checking in to 137 Pillars Suites &
Residences in Bangkok’s Sukhumvit
Thonglor neighbourhood will introduce
you to the casual luxury that is one of
the signatures of Thailand’s hospitable
capital. The hotel’s incredible spa
services (the Thai massage is an
essential while you’re there) and
outstanding food and amenities set the
tone for a relaxing, peaceful escape
amid the hustle and bustle of this
storied city. But to truly live the 137
Pillars experience, make sure to spend
an afternoon by the infinity pool on
the 27th floor, taking in the incredible
views of the city spread out below.
