Wouldn’t it be nice to party it all up at Octave then elevator yourselves down few floors below, take midnight bubble bath and then hit the comfy bed of your One Bedroom Executive Suite? That’s exactly what we did J. Some think we are crazy for loving to spend some of our weekends staying at our favorite luxury hotels in Bangkok. But then again why not? Life is too short not to enjoy every single weekend that you have, and often enough you don’t have time to travel far away so if we must be in Bangkok then we shall only go to the best places. This modernly sleek and sophisticated minimal hotel is located in the city center of the urban and buzzing neighborhood of Sukhumvit with easy access to anything from trendy cafés to ultra-luxe shopping centers, and the sky train at your doorstep. As you walked into the lobby you feel the sense of understated luxury that echoes from the endless floor-to-ceiling-windows, warm lighted chandeliers, and polished marble floors against dark wooden shelves and walls. The check-in process was easy and breezy; after literally 8 minutes we were escorted to our One Bedroom Executive Suite.
Words just really cannot do justice to the magnificence of this awe-inspiring paradise with unparalleled comforts of classically romanticized Safari Ambiance but we will do our best. Just because it is Safari does not mean it has to be in Africa. With only 15 jaw dropping luxurious tents that surpassed any expectation and any benchmark of world’s best safari lodges, Four Seasons Tent Camp Golden Triangle is not your average upscale camping ground. A maximum capacity of 30 guests pledged pure intimacy, privacy, exclusivity, and superb personalized service. Perched on the edge of the world bearing exotic allure of the precious golden land where three countries, Thailand, Laos, and Burma, seamlessly merged into one, pure romance and true beauty of a bygone age are undoubtedly a guarantee. The design of Four Seasons Tent Camp Golden Triangle is also meant to stretch the boundaries of what a tent can be by taking it to a complete next level. Being one of the world’s best luxury resorts, Four Seasons Tent Camp Golden Triangle has been long overdue on our bucket list. So what could be a better excuse than going there to celebrate our 5th Anniversary? Being there was just like traveling through time to the classic 1940’s era of Safari Fantasies with its majestic scenery of mountains and rivers looming dramatically as the backdrop (if you are extra luck you will also get to see a herd of wild buffalo joyfully splashing water and bathing in the river bank during sunset hour), one-of-a-kind handcrafted furniture ranging from vividly patterned tribal fabrics, to double mirror and sink for his-and-her-bathroom, to the hand-beaten copper bathtub made for two, to graceful wood furnishing and floor, to traditional thatched roofs, to King-Size Bed in exquisite white linen atop with fantastically stylish see-through white mosquito net, to rich Wooden Jacuzzi with hot bubbly water, luxury outdoor rain shower, and to the 19th century exploration decorations. Simply put, it was like we were on the movie set of Indiana Jones and The Jungle Book combined (crowned with sense of outré opulent). Here we also have the friendliest residents and our dearest friends (they are our Baloo and Bageera of The Jungle Book), The Elephants, who were rescued from being abused and mistreated and are now living happily under the protection of Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation. Armed with compasses, zoom lenses, binoculars, and Moeva London Swimsuits we are going to see the world of mesmerizing nature at its rawest format.
A home to one of the eighth wonder of the world, The Angkor Wat, and a living proof of Khmer Empire’s glorious era and flourish civilization with impeccable geometry, extraordinary architecture, and unmatched designs, Temples of Angkor, Siem Reap is a Star Attraction and a city that is truly like no others. It is a kind of place to be seen by your very own eyes only. Truly magical and forever sensational to both of us! We are so excited to be back, always have ton of fun shooting here as unlimited amount of fine photography is being made despite numbers of our visit. The Temples of Angkor have the grand scale of The Great Wall of China, the majestic beauty and delicacy of Indian’s Taj Mahal, and the strong resemblance of Egyptian Pyramid, all combined into one; making its European castle counterparts blush. Akin to that of Egyptian Pyramid, they both provoked an obvious question “How were they built? (Especially when It was build almost a thousand years ago, in 1101”). These irresistible authentic Cambodian charms, unanswered wonders, and endless inspirations luring us to make our repeat visit to Siem Reap. As we have always been very fond of how Park Hyatt flawlessly and exquisitely blends chic modern vibes together with that of the charm of local authentic heritage, we have chosen to stay at Park Hyatt Siem Reap. It is exactly what we thought and hope it to be, an ultimate 5-star oasis located at the very heart of the vibrant, Siem Reap. It totally is a perfect & long waited holiday, a little break from GMAT. Ready to explore the enchanted Siem Reap and its spellbound temples of Angkor? Come this way! Quick!
