Thailand is a feast for the senses — Noted by tourists from all over the world as one of the most EXOTIC and EROTIC destinations on earth. From Bangkok's eye-catching neon streets to mouthwatering dishes spiked with chilies and basil to the scent of incense permeating a Buddhist monastery in the countryside, this Southeast Asian country has something for every traveler.
Thailand is affectionately called, by all the travel writers, "Land of Smiles". This is because the people there are so friendly and smile all the time and that always brings a smile to the face of visitors. Its natural beauty can only be matched by its people's easygoing nature and deeply rooted spirituality, all qualities that have made the country the most popular destination in Asia.
Thailand's beaches are mythical: tall palms angle over pearlescent sand, coral gardens flourish in the shallow seas and beach parties are liberally lubricated with alcohol and fun. With a long coastline and jungle-topped islands anchored in azure waters, Thailand is a tropical getaway for the hedonist and the hermit, the prince and the pauper. The nightlife in Thailand is second to none; with the local ladies always looking to "Hook-up" with the tourists.
No matter what draws you to the country first, a Thai meal will keep you hooked. Adored around the world, Thai cuisine expresses fundamental aspects of Thai culture: it is generous and warm, outgoing and nuanced, refreshing and relaxed. And it is much more delicious in its native setting. Each Thai dish relies on fresh and local ingredients – from pungent lemongrass and searing chillies to plump seafood and crispy fried chicken. With a tropical abundance, a varied national menu is built around the four fundamental flavors: spicy, sweet, salty and sour.
Bangkok is a city much like New York in that it is cosmopolitan, sultry, cultural, exotic, erotic, and typically captivates every person who travels there. There are golden palaces and temples that will astound you. There are fascinating cultural differences that actually draw you into their lifestyle. It is one of the safest cities in the world and one of the few countries left on earth where the people there actually LOVE Americans. An interesting fact is that more than half a million Americans visit Thailand per year and of them about 60,000 go to there for medical services since some of the best hospitals in the world are in Bangkok and health care costs are about 1/5 of that in the states.
Pattaya beach is very similar in sight, smell, and raunchiness to that of New Orleans French quarter but many times bigger. It is just a 2 hour drive outside the capitol with over a million residents and it is dedicated exclusively to the sultry, sexy nightlife with more than 800 night clubs, go-go bars, discos, and hip-hop clubs; and everything is dirt cheap there! It is a place that everyone should experience and you can easily get addicted to their style of living. You can shop till you drop for just about any commodity in both the gleaming new malls and the seeding street vendors. We indulge ourselves into it every aspect of this sexy sultry town.
It is a guarantee that once you visit this exotic land you will find it hard to leave!
Bangkok: Much like New York City, space is a real commodity, and hotels rooms and even the 4 and 5 star high rise hotels in downtown in the business district of Bangkok are often quite small. We however have contracts with several hotels that have very spacious rooms. Although our package provides for superior class rooms, these hotels also have deluxe accommodations as well as large multi room suites for those clients who prefer more spacious and luxurious accommodations.
Pattaya: The hotels we use in Pattaya Beach are classified as 3+ star accommodations. We choose them largely based on their proximity to where the "action" is and also based on our past good experiences with them.
Cambodia: The hotels we use for the United Nations world heritage tour of Ankor Wat are all 4 star boutique hotels in the city of Siam Reap.
Daytime activities during our stay are typical of all tourists that visit Thailand are. We'll do a city tour using the various methods of transportation that include the Skytrain, tour buses, and riverboat. We will visit many of the great golden temples and the Royal Grand Palace of the King as well as both the ancient old capitol city and the new gleaming modern shopping districts of this vast metropolis. We will go Elephant Trekking, visit a sanctuary where you can pet Bengal Tiger cubs, fee wild crocodiles, and shake hands with orangutans. Of course no visit to Bangkok would be complete without visiting the red light district it is so famous for, and we will get traditional Thai massages for only $5 per hour as well as many other spa services for pennies on the dollar.
The nightlife in Thailand is wonderfully bizarre, classically outrageous and by far unrivaled by any place on earth. We will take you to all the best night clubs, beer bars, Discos, Go-Go clubs, and strip clubs which have shows that will either offend you or they will astound you. In either case you won’t believe what you see. We will also take to some of the best theater shows in the country.
Thailand is a country where your dollar goes extremely far. There are two reasons for this. First is that every US dollar is equivalent to approximately 28-35 (depending on market) Thai dollars or unit of currency called the Thai "Baht". Second is that certain items in Thailand are produced there by hand and the wages are very, very low. For example, Thailand is known for the finest silk in the world. The silk worms are farmed and the material is loomed by hand. Hence you can buy HAND TAILORED CUSTOM MADE SUITS, SHIRTS AND TIES, (for both ladies and men) in the latest fashions for NEXT TO NOTHING. We have relationships with the best tailors in Thailand and will connect you with them.
Thailand is also known for the highest quality GEMSTONES in the world (except for emeralds-Columbia holds that distinction) and labor being cheap there, they are cut and ground at a very low cost and therefore can be purchased at ridiculously low prices. For example; you can purchase a 40 carat amethyst of exceptional color, for about 1/10 of what it would cost you on Jewelers Row in NYC or Philadelphia. We have ongoing relationships with the largest jewelry and gemstone manufacturer IN THE WORLD.
There are many other commodities that are available in Thailand that can be purchased at huge discounts over import stores in the states. Things like GOLD INLAID LACQUER items from nick-knacks to furnishings for your home. All kinds of 14, 18 and 24 carat gold Jewelry at huge discounts over the states. Silks in every imaginable form, like tapestries, scarves, and wall hangings. We are in excellent standing with many vendors mainly because we have resident staff that live there, speak the language, and know the culture of the vendors. This insures your purchases are not rip offs and are the best deal that can be made.
After our dinner, we organized group nightlife outings. We go to Casinos, Dance Clubs, Jazz & Blues Clubs, Strip Clubs & Outdoor Tiki Bars.
The beaches we go to and the parties we have there are "FOR ADULTS ONLY"! If nudity offends you this is not for you!
