Where to stay in Thailand?

Thailand has a wide range of hotel options to choose from. If you’re looking for a place with a view, then head to the Ritz-Carlton Koh Samui or Oasis Khaolak Resort. If you want to stay in a luxury hotel in the heart of Bangkok, then the Grand Hyatt or The Sofitel Bangkok International Hotel are the perfect places to stay. Whatever you decide, make sure you book ahead because rates for hotel rooms in Thailand are typically higher than in other countries.

Things to do in Bangkok

Thailand’s capital city has a lot to offer. You can head to the nearby Islands of Thailand for some peace and quiet. You can also head to the city’s Chinatown for authentic and cheap eats.

Romantic European Cities

romantic european cities

The history of European cities is filled with romance. From the moment you set foot in them, they tell you stories of the past and present. Whether it’s the ruins of Roman towns or medieval walled cities, these locales have their own stories to tell. Here are a few of my favorite romantic European cities for a love letter romantic getaway.

Rome: The Eternal City

Located on the Italian Peninsula, Rome has a storied history dating back millennia. With so much to see and do, it’s easy to see why it’s been called “The Eternal City.” From the Colosseum to the Trevi Fountain, there are many sights to explore. Make sure to set aside time to visit the Colosseum, one of the most recognizable buildings in the world.

St. Peter’s Square is one of the most popular places to visit in Rome. At night, the square transforms into a visual and aural celebration of the city and its history. If staying in Rome, consider staying at the Hotel Excelsior, which offers a beautiful view of the city’s famous facade.

Florence: The City of Italy’s Dream

Just a short train ride from Rome, Florence is another city with a long and storied history. Its central location made the town a natural choice for artists and inventors. Today, it is still home to a thriving artistic community. The Uffizi Gallery is a leading example of Italian Renaissance art and is easy to visit. There are plenty of places to stay in Florence, that offer great views of the city and the famous Pitti Palace.

Paris: The City of Love

The “City of Light” is the place where love is said to begin, and Paris has something for everyone. From the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre, there are many places to spend a romantic Parisian evening. If you’re looking for an over-the-top romantic experience, consider staying at La Reserve Hotel and Spa.

Venice: The City of Opera and Romantics

Among Venice’s most popular attractions is the San Marco Basilica, in the heart of the city. There are plenty of activities to check out while in Venice, including boat tours of the San Marco Basilica, canal boat rides, and visits to the Doge’s Palace. To venture further out, plan a day to visit Murano to see the art of glassblowing.

Madrid: The Universal City

If you’re looking for a more active experience, you might consider taking a canal boat ride through the city’s waterways. Visit the many galleries, or rent a bike and cycle around the city. Madrid is a wonderful city to visit for a love letter. From the high rises of the city’s arterial canals to the gardens, parks, and museums, Madrid has it all. If you’re hoping to start your visit on a higher note, plan to see The Royal Palace of Madrid.

Brussels: Home of the EU and its Capital

Located just a short train ride from Paris, Brussels has a very different feel from the French city. The “Capital of the World” as it has been called. It has been the center of European life for hundreds of years. During the centuries, Brussels has been a place for trade and business. If you’re hoping to get a head start on your romantic getaway, the Grand Place in central Brussels is a great place to start. The Grand Place or Grote Markt, is the central square of Brussels, Belgium. It is surrounded by opulent Baroque guild halls.

London: The Magic Place for a Love Letter

Located in the home country of Shakespeare, London has a long and fascinating romantic history. As a busy financial center, it’s also home to the world’s most recognizable architecture. London is a great place to begin your love journey. If you’re looking for a sky-high experience, the London Eye, which stands 619 feet tall, offers an amazing view. If you’re hoping to relax, you can take in the British Columbia Museum or the Natural History Museum. Plan a visit to the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace. Stroll through the many gardens and parks located in central London.

There are many romantic European cities in which to write your love letter. Reach out to me when you are ready to start planning your visit.

Situated between Playa Del Carmen and Tulum, Hotel Esencia offers couples and families an intimate getaway. Be prepared for staff to know your name. Take full advantage of the ‘Nanny on Call’ program, offering two hours of complimentary babysitting so the adults can spend some time alone. At Hotel Esencia it’s the small touches that make the biggest impact. Like the samples of local small-batch Casa Dragones tequila left for guests in their rooms. With multi-lingual nannies (and a chef willing to make baby food to order) even the youngest guests will be taken care of.
