Something stands out in Thailand - and it's not just the remarkable aroma of authentic pad Thai. The country - whose traditions have been shaped by many influences - including Burmese, Cambodian, Indian and Chinese, is a land full of contrasts. Neon orange expressways wind through segments of glowing green cityscape, while the temples of deities point upwards towards the sky amongst modern-day skyscrapers in Bangkok. In Phuket, it's about brilliant colour divergences; emerald green vegetation is outlined by curvy lines of white sandy beach, surrounded by brilliant cerulean water.
The first part of the experience, in Bangkok, includes a two-night stay at The Montien Hotel. The hotel is in a prime location for exploring the city, just steps away from sky train station Saladaeng on Silom, the underground station Sam Yan on Rama IV and Hua Lumpong main railway station, so getting around the city is extremely easy.
There is a lot to see on foot too in this area, and the best way to experience the city is to wander. Before you know it, you will be munching on juicy pieces of grilled pork on a stick or feasting on a fiery bowl of Tom Yum soup. The hotel is in easy reach of major shopping centers such as Siam Paragon, Central World Plaza, MBK, and Gaysorn, and attractions that you'll want to check out including China Town, The Grand Palace and The River of King, the Chao Praya River and Lumpini Park.
The second part of your Thailand experience takes place in the illustrious Phuket, known for its pristine beaches and surrounding crags, a vibrant nightlife and scrumptious food offerings. Enjoy seven nights at the luxurious, 4-star, beachfront Cape Panwa Hotel (with breakfast included each day).
Besides soaking up the sun on the beach, other notable lures in Phuket include the Two Heroines Monument in Amphoe Thalang (honouring two women who rallied islanders to repel Burmese invaders in 1785) and the nearby Thalang National Museum containing artifacts and remains discovered on the beach. Additionally, located on the peak of a mountain near Muang Phuket is the Big Buddha of Phuket, a 45 metre-high statue of the spiritual teacher covered in white Burmese marble.
