Planning adventures, researching hidden gems and putting together lists are things I genuinely enjoy – so working as a Travel Consultant was a must! I grew up in Madrid, spent a year in Barcelona and have since travelled to Asia, Indonesia and Australasia, but the travel bug is still very much there! Discovering new cultures, cuisines and lifestyles is something I seek to continue exploring.
Beautiful beaches, delectable cuisine and rich history are just some factors which continuously draw me back to Asia. The variety Thailand has to offer, means there really is something for everyone. The varying cuisine from North to South, island-hopping boat trips, unforgettable elephant experiences and the cacophony of sights and sounds in Bangkok blend to confirm it as a truly special country.
Favourite places I've been
For a refreshing, delectable and local Thai speciality, be sure to sample a Pomelo Salad throughout your time in Thailand. Often paired with crab meat - this dish will alight your taste buds and is free of spice!
Remember: when visiting temples in Thailand, you will need to cover your shoulders and knees so it's a good idea to carry a shawl around with you.
If staying at the Elephant Hills Camp, take advantage of the complimentary kayaks and head out on the lake at 6:30AM for the best chance of spotting the area's wildlife. Follow the sounds, and look up to the trees to spot families of gibbons!
Whilst leaping into a tuk tuk to explore the local area is a fantastic way to get around, make sure to confirm the price of the journey with your driver beforehand. Your hotel concierge can help advise on rough costs!
When staying in Bangkok, enjoy a refreshing cocktail at Vertigo - Banyan Tree's rooftop bar. The best time to go is as the sun is setting, when this electric city can be really marveled at, 61 floors up!
