Escape to Thailand with Amari

18th September 2012 Print

As winter fast approaches and the UK’s summer season fades, Amari, one of Thailand’s top hotel brands, is helping Brits escape the autumn blues and head for warmer climes by offering deals starting from £183 per person. With the clocks turning back next month and the nights drawing in, plan ahead now and book a winter getaway to one of Amari’s 13 hotels across Thailand.

The last months of the year provide some of the best conditions for UK visitors to soak up Thailand’s sunshine and explore in slightly cooler temperatures, averaging 30 degrees celsius. Make the most of the weather by discovering the vibrant city of Bangkok.

There are also a number of festivals and events taking place across Thailand which make the destination even more appealing. One of the main events is the magical Loy Krathong. Taking place on 28th November, the annual festival draws together local people and tourists alike. ‘Krathongs’ (meaning banana leaf vessels) are released down the river under the full moon, lighting up the twilight sky and creating a visionary spectacle.

Alternatively travel in December amidst the build up to Christmas. On 5th December, celebrate the birthday of His Majesty King Rama IX with the locals. Join in the celebratory atmosphere and witness a spectacular firework display to end the day.

Try Christmas shopping with a difference in Bangkok, swapping snow capped Christmas markets and mulled wine for market stalls, sun-drenched streets and tuk-tuks. Visit the Chatuchak market, home to over 8,000 market stalls, parade around the famous MBK centre, or check out the latest additions to the renowned malls, including Terminal 21 and Central Plaza Rama 9. An hour taxi ride out of the city is Asiatique, Bangkok’s newest shopping destination on the riverfront, with over 1,500 boutiques waiting to be explored.

Stay at the Amari Watergate Bangkok, just a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of vibrant Bangkok.

Enjoy two nights at the Amari Watergate Bangkok with the ‘Bangkok Shopping Package’ from 9,054 THB (approximately £183) per person.

Price includes two nights in a Deluxe Room, full day unlimited Wi-Fi internet access, a welcome drink, discounted shopping card (saving you 5-70% off prices in many major stores), free late check-out until 14.00 and 500 THB (£10) to spend in the hotel’s Breeze Spa - the perfect way to unwind after a day of shopping. Offer valid until 31st December 2012. To book visit
