Top 5 Thailand Travel Highlights

In January 2023, I left my Corporate America job after 15+ years.  I traded accounting for adventure, and began my new career as an Independent Travel Advisor with Vincent Vacations.  Our first adventure in my new life was a biggie!  My husband and I planned a 2-week trip to Thailand to celebrate my new opportunities.  I would go back in a minute, with several things I'd do again.

Here are my top 5 Thailand adventures that will hopefully inspire you to take the leap and plan your Bucket List Adventure.

#5 - Food:  Thai food is one of my all-time favorite cuisines.  So much flavor and so many options.  Pad Thai in Thailand is 1000 times better than what you can get in the US, and I love our local Thai restaurants!  Other favorites: Thai lobster, mango sticky rice, pork skewers and Thai basil chicken.  We found inexpensive meat on a stick at the night markets to eggs, rice and chili for breakfast from 7-11.  We dined in more luxury at  The House of Smooth Curry (one of the many restaurants at The Athenee Hotel in Bangkok).  Some of our favorites were the locally recommended places that didn't look like much, but the flavors were fantastic, like Go-Ang Pratunam Chicken in Bangkok.

#4 - Temples:  We explored so many beautiful Buddhist Temples.  What resonated the most with me was the detailed artistry that was done centuries ago.  From Wat Phra Kaew (home of the Emerald Buddha) and Wat Pho (home of the largest reclining Buddha) in Bangkok, to Wat Chiang Man (the oldest temple in Chiang Mai) and Wat Saen Muang Ma Luang (at hidden gem in Old City) in Chiang Mai, I was in awe.   Pictures are beautiful, but to really appreciate the temples, you must visit in person.

#3 - Night markets:  Southeast Asia is known for it's lively night markets.  Stall after stall, and a sea of patrons strolling through--there's nothing like it.  You can find dinner & dessert, get a pedicure, buy a new wardrobe, and mingle with locals and tourists alike.  We went to several, and our favorite was Jodd Fairs market.  Next time, I promise I'll eat the scorpion on a stick!

#2 - Elephant Sanctuary:  While in Phuket, we visited the The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary.  While people back home were watching the Super Bowl, we were spending the day with 3 gentle giants.  We fed them, scrubbed them with mud, and rinsed them off in their own private swimming hole.  Do your research!  You want to pick a sanctuary with high humane standards. NEVER RIDE AN ELEPHANT!

#1 - Islands and Beaches:  There is no shortage of beautiful beaches in Thailand.  Our first beach stop was the lively and popular Patong Beach in Phuket.  It felt a lot like Honolulu--lots of people, lots of activities, and so much to see within walking distance of almost anywhere.  Our last beach stop was Koh Samui.  We saw the Angthong Marine Park limestone islands up close on a semi-private tour that included snorkeling, kayaking, and the most fabulous sunset.  Highly recommend!

My love of travel started at a young age.  Family road trips across the country and vacations in Hawaii is where it all began.  After starting a family, we traveled frequently to the beach, Disney, and many places near and far.  My husband and I also traveled to Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe. In early 2023 I left my corporate accounting career, which allowed me to focus on my traveling clients and seeing more of the world for myself.  My adventures included Thailand, Maui, Walt Disney World, Puerto Vallarta, Curacao, Jamaica, Vancouver, Alaska & Amsterdam. 2024 began i...  Read More >>>

Anne King at Vincent Vacations helped me plan a trip of a lifetime. I narrowed my travel destination to two places then Anne suggested the Netherlands and I was all in. She helped plan a seamless vacation including flights, hotel, transportation, museums and tours. This trip definitely exceeded my expectations. I will definitely use her and Vincent Vacations again.

Iberostar Tucan - Riviera Maya
Iberostar Tucan - Riviera Maya

Multi-generation family vacation before Christmas 2023

We had a great experience and would highly recommend Iberostar Tucan. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean a comfortable. Pool and beach were both well stocked with seating so there was none of that “reserving your seats at dawn or there will be no where to sit”.
The food was good and could be great depending on your individual preferences. Personally, I really enjoyed the Japanese Hibachi grill experience and the smokehouse BBQ was excellent. My oldest son thought the Smokehouse pulled pork was the best he’d ever had. Tiffany loved the Crème Brûlée at the Mediterranean restaurant, my 16 year old son thought the pizza crust at the Italian restaurant was the best.
Buildings 14 and 15 have the best views, facing the interior jungle. There is an abundance of wildlife in the “jungle”. We were greeted each morning by acrobatic monkeys swinging through the canopy right outside our balcony. Peacocks and Lemurs are a common sight throughout the resort. There was even a big iguana living beneath the patio of our building (14) that greeted us each day basking in the sun.
Transportation via Amstar both to and from the resort was great. Vehicles were in excellent shape, clean, comfortable and professional driven.
We arrange an outing to Tulum via Amstar and our guide spoke both English and German to accommodate some of the German guest joining us on our trip to Tulum.
Overall the resort was in great shape. I saw no indications of any deferred maintenance or lack of attention to the buildings or grounds. As mentioned previously, the staff were super friendly and helpful. We were always greeted with a smile and a “how can we help” attitude.
We will definitely return someday.
