Even those of us with gorgeous homes are itching for a change of scenery now that stay-at-home restrictions have been eased. Here are the best staycation deals in Bangkok to get you started.
Thailand can give itself a pat on the back for effectively “flattening the curve”, and hopefully the low rates of Coronavirus transmission we’ve been seeing lately will continue on for the foreseeable future. Now, as a reward for all those weeks of self-isolation, it’s time to look at the incredible staycation hotel packages currently being offered by some of Bangkok’s best hotels and urban resorts. Some are available now, some are “buy-now-enjoy later”, but all are worth considering when you feel it’s time for a change of scenery and some post-pandemic pampering.
