      /  DESTINATIONS   /  My Favorite Place – January 2016

    Sukrita Chomdhavat (Director of Marketing Communications, Pullman Bangkok Grande Sukhumvit Hotel), Viktoria Egli (Guest Experience Manager, The Monttra Pattaya) and Tania Joslin tell us their favorite place.

    THE LOCAL - Sukrita Chomdhavat

    Sukrita-ChomdhavatName: Sukrita Chomdhavat
    Age: 46
    Country: Thailand
    Job/Profession: Director of Marketing Communications, Pullman Bangkok Grande Sukhumvit Hotel

    My favorite place: Doi Ang Khang, Chiang Mai
    Bring there: Money, camera, and warm outfits because it’s usually freezing up there on the mountain
    Must-do: Visit the Winter Plant Research Station, a Royal Project that is famous for winter plants and flowers, which grow abundantly all-year-round. Great place to enjoy the wonderful temperate weather too!
    Must-see: The strawberry fields and hilltribe villages
    Must-buy: Souvenirs, tribal handicraft and trinkets
    Eat at: Doi Ang Khang
    Drink at: Doi Ang Khang
    Sleep at: Accommodation is available at the Winter Plant Research Station

    THE EXPAT - Viktoria Egli

    Viktoria-EgliName: Viktoria Egli
    Age: 25
    Country: Switzerland
    Job/Profession: Guest Experience Manager, The Monttra Pattaya

    My favorite place: Pai, Mae Hong Son
    Bring there: As less as I can so I gain as much as I can: experience, relaxation, friends, and freedom
    Must-do: Thai boxing at Charn Chai Muay Thai. It is the best, fastest, and funniest way to get in touch with other travelers, get in touch with Thai culture, and enjoy a local sport at the same time. Once you have seen Muay Thai at Charn Chai, you will miss it for a lifetime.
    Must-see: The jungle and mountains with its waterfalls around.
    Must-buy: All those big, little souvenirs such as the “I Love Pai” t-shirts. Things that — after you’re back home – will remind you of the great time you have had in the place.
    Eat at: Curry Shark. But you need to be there at 6 p.m., or you will not have a table anymore for the entire evening. The chef is Pai’s curry cooking master, so expect great food.
    Drink at: Buffalo Bar – definitely the place to be in the evening
    Sleep at: Huan Saran Guesthouse. This is a nice, decent guesthouse that is located in the middle of the town center and has the loveliest rooms and hosts!
