I travelled with some colleagues from March 5-9, 2014 to this wonderful place. This time, not a typical tourist touring, but added some meaningful activities in gesture of goodwill and return to this country.

We stayed at the Reflection Arts Boutique Hotel which is located on Wat Bo Street for all 4 nights. The airport transfer was FOC and breakfast was included (ala carte).

our room (Under Smile) at Reflection Arts Boutique Hotel
Each room is decorated uniquely and is quite cute. It is value for money but cleanliness (especially for the pool) could be improved.

Not to bore you with a long post, I will write about each days' activities on separate posts.


In a quick glance, this was our itinerary for 4 full days.
