Akaryn Hotel Group receives prestigious accolades for three hotels at Thailand Boutique Awards 2017

When you go stay at a hotel for a couple of nights you always leave with either a good impression or bad impression. Hotels should always try to make sure their customers are satisfied no matter what. The Akaryn hotel group in Thailand seems to have done a very good job with three of their properties picking up awards in Best Design Hotel, Best Thematic Hotel and Best Green Hotel categories at the Thailand Boutique Awards presentation ceremony held in Bangkok in mid-February. The properties picking up the awards were the akyra Manor Chiang Mai,  Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa– this one has been of my personal list of favorites for years, and Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa in Pranburi. It is safe to say they have left a great enough impression and have amazing ratings from customers.

Bangkok street food to be banned and taken off streets by 2018

Many cities revel in their street food. If you want to know how a culture really eats this is what you look at rather than restaurant food.
