These excellent seaside hotel deals on now that make getting away from the city a lot more tempting. Check out these staycation offers outside of Bangkok.
Thailand has very effectively “flattened the curve”, when it comes to the spread of the Coronavirus, and so, as a possible reward for all those weeks of dreary self-isolation, it’s time to look into the incredible domestic vacation hotel packages currently being offered by some of the Kingdom’s best seaside luxury resorts. Most are available right now, some are “buy-now-enjoy-later”, but all are worth considering when you feel it’s time for some post-pandemic pampering, or even just a simple change of scenery and a taste of fresh seafood offset by salty ocean breezes.
