Plan Your Holiday or Winter Getaway to This Luxe Island Resort in Thailand

You could argue any season is a good one to escape to the beaches and islands of Thailand — and you’d be right. But the region is just entering monsoon season, which lasts from mid-May through October, meaning days could be picture perfect, a complete wash-out or anything in-between. (Generally it just equates to frequent showers that can pass through as quickly as they came.) But if you want to be all but guaranteed great weather, schedule your trip between November and February. Admittedly it’s the busiest season, but the temperature is warm but not oppressive, the seas are calm and the beaches stay dry.

Must-Visit Animal Sanctuaries

Animal lovers know there are plenty of destinations worthy of traveling to for resident wildlife alone. While best-case scenarios, seeing animals in their natural habitats is an incredible experience as you’re not always guaranteed they will show themselves. One way to increase your odds of seeing some beloved beasts, check out at a wildlife sanctuary on your next trip. You can feel good about your visit since the cost is typically a donation, giving back to the animals you love and the people who take care of them, and you know they are in good hands.
