The Holiday Treat!
Thailand has it all - fascinating culture and art, gorgeous architecture, excellent beaches, friendly people, scintillating nightlife, and some of the greatest cuisine in Asia. Thailand is often called "The Land of Smiles" because the mostly Buddhist people are extremely affable and hospitable.
The Kingdom of Thailand, formerly known as Siam, was one of the few Asian countries that was never colonized by the west, so its rich culture is largely free of European influence. Thailand, and Bangkok in particular, is quite modern relative to some of its neighbors, and is an economic powerhouse in Southeast Asia with first-rate hospitals and other facilities. The resort towns of Phuket and Samui are amongst the finest in the world, with unrivalled scenery, and the always impeccable Thai service.Bangkok the capital is a mix of ancient temples and palaces in the shadow of a modern big city skyline. A visit to the Royal Grand Palace is a must, as is the Temple of the Golden Buddha where you will see Buddha crafted from over 5 tons of gold. In fact there are over 400 fascinating Buddhist temples in the city. Make sure you explore the timeless canals of the 'Venice of the East' and Chao Phraya River (River of the Kings) winding through the city.
If you're looking for accommodation in Bangkok, the Elegance Suite is an excellent choice. It is situated near the River of The Kings, shopping centres, fine entertainment and shopping and Skytrain which can take you to multiple destinations. The hotel has 82 well appointed suites and good onsite amenities. There are suites available every week until December 2007.

Thailand is a tantalising destination teeming with attractions and memorable experiences.
