Why Thailand is the Perfect Weekend Getaway

Dream Destinations: Why Thailand is the Perfect Weekend Getaway.

Thailand is the perfect destination for a quick getaway especially for those who live in neighboring countries and wish to escape to a bright and sunny destination with beautiful sandy beaches and spas to help you unwind, relax and rejuvenate.


For those who don’t live too far from Thailand, a weekend trip to this beautiful country is not only possible but also very easy to plan. For instance, you can easily book Kolkata to Bangkok flight tickets just for the weekend. Read on to discover some of the fabulous things you can do while vacationing in Thailand.

1. Shopping

Now, relaxation can mean different things to people. So, if shopping relaxes you or if the thought of a culinary trip is your idea of a relaxing weekend, you can plan your Thailand weekend trip centered on those activities. For a shopping trip, a stay in Bangkok is ideal. You can book your stay at any of the luxury hotels in the city and visit all the big malls and local street shops all through the day.


You can do your usual MBK for bargain shopping and Siam Paragon for high-end fashion. But for a more authentic Thai experience, you can go see the famous night markets in Bangkok. You can relax in your hotel spa or at the beach during the day and eat and shop to your delight during the night. 

Try Asiatique for amazing fashion buys, bars and lots of entertainment avenues. You can also head to Rot Fai, which is a vibrant market in the city’s eastern side. Go to Pantip Plaza for your gadget shopping and to Pratunam for bargain fashion accessories.

2. Beach Fun 

If all you can think about is being on the beach during your weekend trip, there is no better place than Thailand. If you just want to visit one beach and relax, go to Koh Kood near Bangkok. You can also combine this beach trip with a shopping day or party night in Bangkok and then head to the clear waters in the lap of nature. Go to Cha-Am (again not far from Bangkok) to spend a day of leisure walking, sampling the seafood and watching your stress melt away.


If you need to escape the crowds, Pranburi might be the ideal beach getaway for you. Or head to Rayong just a few hours from hustle and bustle of Bangkok. All you need to do is book your Kolkata to Bangkok flight tickets and head to one of these beaches.

3. Spa stay 

You can start or end your weekend Bangkok trip with a spa day. You can also just try the spa and beach relaxing weekend in Bangkok and do away with all sightseeing and shopping activities. Go for the famous spas inside the hotels or go to any of the massage/spa chains that you can find across Bangkok.


The spa at Mandarin Oriental is very famous if that is what you want to experience. Or you can stay at the Sukhothai – a hotel with its now famous Spa Botanica. Another good option for a relaxing weekend is to stay at the Sofitel So in Bangkok and enjoy the hotel’s modern spa. With so much relaxation, you might even be ready to head to one of the night markets to eat and be merry before heading home.

Fab Tip:
For those who are a bit adventurous, the best way is to just head to shopping and partying on your arrival at Bangkok. Then spend the next day and half just relaxing at the spa, enjoying Thailand’s culinary surprises and experiencing a different city mood for a while.

There is nothing like a quick weekend trip to Thailand to rest your mind and body so pack your bags and get ready for a fabulous experience and vacation!
