Thailand is the perfect destination to get away for a girl’s trip. For female business travelers from around Asia especially, the Land of Smiles presents a unique opportunity to combine business with pleasure – attending client meetings, and then kicking back for a few extra days of spa treatments, shopping and cocktails. The word is quickly spreading about Bangkok as a versatile weekend escape, where ladies can recharge their batteries however they desire – whether it’s getting pampered, partying the night away or a little bit of both.
Here are our best recommendations on how women can spend a few luxurious days in the City of Angels: After touring around temples, shopping malls and cocktail bars, there’s nothing more important than being pampered. Thailand’s renowned for its first-class spa service and the ancient techniques of Thai massage, but it’s still important to choose a spa that’s known for professional service and using high-quality products.
Spa Botanica (Sukothai), Spa Studio (Mandarin Oriental), Spa InterContinental are highly regarded as the city’s best hotel spas for their blend of ancient practice and modern technology throughout a variety of treatments.
