    An oasis of calm

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 14/09/2018

    » Serene, calm, spiritual -- three words that one would rarely see in a description of Shanghai, but this is not your normal modern-day China. This is Amanyangyun, Aman group of hotels' fourth destination in China and the only one in Shanghai. Meaning "nourishing cloud" in Mandarin, "yangyun" is a reference to expanding the "cloud" of the mind with knowledge.

    Local luxury

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 07/09/2018

    » Whenever you think of beach getaways, you probably think of places like Bali, Hawaii or if you've got the dough, the Caribbean or Maldives. Basically, anywhere but somewhere local. But why does going somewhere local have to be a bad thing? Is it because there's this mindset that just going local is not glamorous enough? Don't get me wrong, there's no problem with a beach getaway abroad, but it's only glam if you've got the bucks for it. I humbly suggest an alternative: why not just spend the same amount of money you would on an OK beach vacay in another country on a luxurious beach getaway in Phuket?

    Celebrate Life

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 31/08/2018

    » The Nikki Beach group of hotels and resorts has long been a holiday destination for people looking for fun and relaxation, with locations all over the world, including the USA, France, Spain, Greece, the Caribbean, Monaco, Turkey, Italy and Thailand. In Koh Samui, the high-end beach club has been labelled as "The Sexiest Place On Earth", where Nikki Beach combines music and entertainment with privacy, delectable food and drinks and stunning sunset views of Lipa Noi beach (assuming it doesn't rain). Last month when the resort held a special event, I decided to get a taste of Nikki Beach's celebration of life.

    Club escape

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 27/07/2018

    » Taking a vacation is supposed to be a time to relax, unwind and escape reality for a little bit. However, it's the planning prior to the vacation that can cause stress and chaos. Where do you want to go? Where are you going to stay? Do you want to go around and explore the local sights or is this going to be a staycation sort of thing? And then there's the million dollar question: how much is this all going to cost? Will I be able to afford it or is this vacay worth living off saltine crackers for a month?

    Historic stays

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 18/05/2018

    » New hotels popping up around the city are a common sight in Bangkok. It's a delight to see that tourism isn't slowing down and that the city is being modernised more and more each day. The downside is that the essence and spirit of old Bangkok may be forgotten amid the urbanisation. However, there are a few who choose to not only preserve the old culture of the city, but also share it with people from out of town. We've got four hotels with rich histories you could check in at for a different experience.

    Let's get geeky

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 20/04/2018

    » Whether you like it or not, geek is in. That's obvious from the plethora of superhero movies reigning at the box office and the TV series we follow and binge faithfully. And Bangkok isn't an exception. Geekiness is alive and well here in the Big Mango. That's pretty evident with the "letter" Major Cineplex released a few weeks ago that employees could use to give to their bosses to ask for the day off to watch Avengers: Infinity War (ours is already printed out and ready to go as well as our escape plan in case our boss chases us out of the office). Aside from that, Bangkok is going to show off its geek pride with a couple of events in the city. So ignite your lightsabers, produce 1.21 gigawatts, step into the Tardis, have your wands at the ready and sit in your captain's chair. Here are five events in Bangkok where geeks will thrive and fanboy/fangirl to the max.

    Summer checklist

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 06/04/2018

    » The blistering heat and scorching sun has made it evident that summer is upon us. The bad news is that it's likely to get hotter from here on. The good news is that the city is going to be an all-out water war zone in a few weeks. Aside from that, there are plenty of things to do during this summer. But if you're scatterbrained like us, can't organise yourself and will probably end up lounging on the couch eating a tub of ice cream (which is not a bad idea, actually), you can stop fretting. We've compiled a summer to-do list for you.

    Home away from home

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 30/03/2018

    » A villa stay brings to mind a spacious and luxurious accommodation with great service and a price to match. The Ville Jomtien Pool Villa fits that -- but not to the ideal extent.
