A Whimsical Christmas break in Khao Yai
KHAO YAI has to be one of the most picturesque regions that this beautiful country has to offer, and the best news is that it’s only located a short 3 hours’ drive away from Bangkok.
Blessed with a lush, mountainous landscape, with fertile valleys, pounding waterfalls, and rich biodiversity, Khao Yai is the perfect Christmas & New Year getaway.
The magical area of Toscana Valley offers many hotel options from Toscana Valley’s Town Square Suites that are inspired by the intertwining lifestyle of a piazza, giving mesmerizing views of the Khao Yai landscape to Italian style cottages and Tuscan style-farm houses oozing in class… we couldn’t think of a more idyllic Christmas destination.
The first sunrise of 2021 at Pha Chanadai.
UBON RATCHATHANI despite being one of Issan’s major cities Ubon Ratchathani doesn’t get the credit it deserves for its stunning beauty and lush green landscapes.
And, if watching the sunrise does it for you then Ubon is the place to go, in fact, you can watch the very first sunrise of the New Year by heading up to Pha Chanadai, which is one of Thailand’s most easterly points and is the first place to see the sunrise welcoming in a New Day and New Year.
Why not let the cool Northern air of 2020 pass as you welcome the dawn of 2021 as the sun rises above the Mekhong River allowing you to view the amazing landscape of Ubon as a perfect backdrop.
While your there check out Phu Chong Nayoi and Pha Taem National Parks, as they are two of Isan’s most unspoiled and unvisited natural preserves.

Something a little more traditional
BANGKOK If you’re missing that Christmas feeling or wondering where to bring in the New Year, look no further than Bangkok, nowhere is busier than Bangkok and with that comes plenty of opportunities to dress the capital up with familiar Christmas decorations.
Bangkok’s famous high-end, sky-scraping shopping centres and luxury hotels sprout Christmas trees and fairy lights that become an attraction of their own. You could easily take a walking tour just to decide which mall has the best display!
Around the central Siam area, Siam Paragon, CentralWorld, and MBK are among the malls to hit for a Christmas tree selfie, while hotels that impress each year include the Grand Hyatt Erawan, the Peninsula, and the InterContinental.
If you’re wondering where to get your fill of turkey, Christmas pudding, and port, the city’s best hotels are some of the best places to find heaving buffets, free-flow alcohol, and steaming Christmas pudding over the holiday period, but there are plenty of stand-alone restaurants offering special festive menus as well.
