Thailand titbits

Here are some May events in Thailand which may be of interest to luxury travellers. There are several trade shows including: Thailand Golf and Dive Expo 2011 from 26-29 May 2011, at Queen Sirikit National Convention Center, Bangkok. This is an opportunity to learn more about the best golfing and diving destinations in Thailand. You may also be able to pick up special deals on travel packages. “Wonderful Thailand” is also part of this expo. (Same website and dates.) This is where top hotels, resorts, and tour operators showcase their services and also offer special discounts to people attending the expo. It could be worth a look. There are also some special deals available for gourmet dining. For some reason ice cream seems to be flavour of the month at some of the top hotels. The Landmark on Sukhumvit is offering an all-you-can-eat ice cream buffet until the end of May. And the Four Seasons at Rajadamri Road is doing a special “Tropical Ice Cream” promotion, also until the end of May 2011. If ice cream isn’t your scene (it’s not mine!) you might like to try some seafood treats instead. Party House One, Siam@Siam Hotel and Spa have created a new seafood buffet, “Deep Sea Delights”. You can try a variety of seafood cooked in many different ways from their exciting menu. This promotion is every Friday evening until the end of May. It’s quite difficult to find good information for you because so many things don’t get very well publicised in advance – they’re only reported after the event. It’s easy to find what was on, and so much harder to find what’s coming up. I’ve done my best! I’ll finish with a couple of insider tips. Probably the best lunch and dinner buffets in Bangkok are to be found at the Grand Hyatt Erawan, and the Lebua at State Tower is very hard to beat for a comfortable stay (and wonderful buffet breakfast).
