I was fortunate to be selected for an educational with Qatar Airways and Centara Hotels.
We spent 2 nights in Bangkok. Shopping at the Pratunam Market was a great experience. We also explored the Bangkok temples and participated in the Grand Palace tour, including the reclining Buddha.
Phuket was very interesting. There is also a night market in Karon. I would recommend staying in the Karon area which is about a 10 minutes tuk-tuk drive from Patong. Staying in Karon is quieter.
We visited many hotels and this was great for me, since I had visited Thailand 18 years prior to this trip.
I was very luck to be upgraded on 3 out of my 4 flights! I experienced Qatar Airways amazing business class product and outstanding service! It was incredible and highly recommended.
If you are planning a trip to Thailand and would love some more information, then please get in touch with me.
