DK & MH finish up their tour of Thailand, seeing Bangkok through new eyes with MH’s brother and his wife. There is plenty to see and do in Bangkok, day or night, so they were busy. They then chilled out in Koh Samed staying with the wonderful Paradee Hotel. Great facilities and a wonderful soft sand beach with clear and inviting waters.
So we did it. We found paradise in Koh Kood Thailand, perfectly complimented by the wonderful Soneva Kiri Resort. If you can live without a tv and enjoy nature, this just might be exactly what you have been looking for.
DK & MH are loving Koh Kood Island, soaking up the natural beauty and simple elegance on offer. It may not have the nightlife and shopping of other destinations in Thailand, but there is much to be enjoyed for those who can appreciate nature at its finest.
DK & MH are touring Thailand, taking in all the sites and wonder on offer. They were invited to a very traditional Thai wedding, but now they are visiting some old favorites and enjoying new discoveries. As vast and as beautiful Thailand is, there is always something new to explore, even if you have travelled as much as DK!
DK & MH from Chic got all dressed up to enjoy a special invite to a traditional Thai wedding. They share some pictures of the even here.
The 28th of March is Nyepi day, which is New Year in Bali.
Rather uniquely this is a day of silence on the island. All noise is kept to the absolute minimum.
Chic is proud to add three new hotels covering Greece & Thailand. All welcome additions to our ever expanding collection. In Greece we have the wonderful Camvillia Resort & the Sani Dunes Adult and Teenager Resort, offering boutique romance and extensive family fun. In Chiang Mai we have a centrally located gem with a grand colonial design. Na Nirand Boutique Hotel offers great value and a unique base for exploration.
DK spent the best part of the week attending the ITB travel show in Berlin. This is the largest travel show in the world, held every March. It is spread over 26 halls so it is huge and if you cover more than one geographical area, you really have to plan your days.
MH & DK from Chiclocations travelled from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv to take in the sites, contrasts and history of Israel. They were only there for three days, but managed to see and experience so much in that short time. By all accounts, they had an amazing time.
MH and DK from Chic are in Israel for a few days. It is MH’s first visit to Israel, and DK’s first return since 1968. MH has been totally taken it by the sites and diversity of Jerusalem.
We all have our own ideas on romantic resorts and places. On a list of ten we might have five that would be unanimous and the other five could be highly subjective and personal.
We asked David (DK) at Chic for his thoughts as he has travelled extensively, and despite getting a bit long in the tooth, still has his romantic side. Here are DK’s Top Ten Romantic Chic Locations, in no particular order…
