While most Italian restaurants in the City of Angels are renowned for their lusciously Italian-inspired Mediterranean cuisine, Da Vinci at the Rembrandt Hotel in Sukhumvit Soi 18 is – in my humble opinion – top of the list when it comes to Sunday Brunch. Without a doubt one of the best value for money three-hour grazing feasts to be found anywhere in Bangkok, those who enjoy the full breadth of Italian cuisine will not be left feeling hard done by.
Soon to celebrate its first anniversary, Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse has plenty to sing about. The stunning 32-storey hotel is situated in what used to be Bangkok’s bustling diplomatic and expatriate quarter and today the area is still home to several ambassador’s residences and gorgeous 19th century buildings. A shining example of 21st century steel and glass, the hotel sits comfortably juxtaposed to the neo-classical Neilson Hays Library, a building dedicated to love.
With more than 37 million tourists touching down on Thai soil in 2018, the outlook for the Kingdom’s tourism industry is rosy. While the majority of international travellers head to the idyllic beaches of southern Thailand, the northern landscape also attracts large numbers of visitors thanks to the stunning scenery, delicious food and genuine warm welcome afforded by the local community.
Hua Hin is famed for its fantastic variety of seafood served hot and fresh on plates in high-end restaurants, street cafes and, of course, at the night market. But at all these locations you pay a little extra without getting a clear view of the ocean, which even from the market is just a stones throw away. For those in the know, a little excursion out towards Hua Hin Airport and Soi 5 will lead you to the quaint little restaurant Baan Dam (Black House).
During the seasonal monsoon, when there’s a lull in the daily downpours and the skies are blue from dawn until dusk, we like to escape the hustle and bustle of Bangkok and head to the seaside for a few days of rest and relaxation. For the past few years, Hua Hin has been our destination of choice thanks to the cooling sea breeze, ease of travel and distinct lack of crowds on weekdays.
