Scenic getaways

Get out of the city...

Connecting with nature is one of life’s most satisfying experiences.

  • Chiang Rai White Temple
    Bruce's Choice

    Explore and reflect: Chiang Rai, Thailand

    I have found Chiang Rai to be the most riveting area of Northern Thailand throughout my extensive travels during my nine month stint living there, whilst attending Thammasat Universit in Bangkok. Le Méridien Chiang Rai sits in beautiful landscaped gardens, and is surrounded by magnificent views all around. The local community and many historic sites hidden in incredible scenery, are all waiting to be explored. Views, temples, museums, boat trips, and night markets which all make a wonderful and mesmerizing experience.

    Chonor House, Dharamsala, India

    This Hotel has an incredible energy with its Tibetan décor – striking wall paintings complemented by appliquéd fabrics, hand-knotted carpets and carved, decorated wooden furniture all created by Norbulingka craftsmen.It is a wonderful part of the world to visit, where you can learn about the rich culture and history of Tibetan life.

  • Casa Ospicchio
    Bruce's Choice

    Casa Ospicchio, Umbria & Tuscany
