Sawadee khrup, Travelers!

And while I’m at it, Happy Holidays! Can you believe how quickly 2019 has flown by? I know it feels like that every year, but it does bear repeating. It’s been a wonderful 12 months for Classic Escapes and we’re looking forward to an even better year ahead in 2020.

This month, we’re headed to Thailand with our spotlight feature. Modern cities, idyllic beaches, lush rainforest – it really is a nation that has it all. Whether you are looking for diverse wildlife, unique cultural experiences, or just an excellent plate of food, Thailand can more than deliver.

Our conservation piece this month takes a look at carefully choosing your wildlife attractions when you are in Southeast Asia – particularly with Thailand’s infamous elephant rides. Of course, while we do provide some sobering information about these practices, as always, we include ways you can help and tips on how to make sure that your tourism choices are responsible ones.

I love Thailand, and of course I have an album of my visits there for all of you to enjoy. It’s one of those destinations that runs out your memory card and then some. It seems like everywhere you look, there’s another artistic shot begging to be taken.

Our deal of the month is to an equally exotic, if far less developed destination – The Galapagos Islands! For a limited time take $250 off per person to visit one of the most incredible wildlife destinations on the planet.

We hope you have a safe and delightful holiday break. Stay safe, stay warm, and say hello to all of your family on our behalf! We’ll see you in 2020.

Pai Laew Na Krab,
