Checking In to the Four Seasons Koh Samui

I first visited Thailand ten years ago and since then, I’ve told anyone who will listen that it is the best holiday destination for Australians. For starters, the location is ideal. Thailand can be reached directly from Sydney in just 8 hours, adding a few hours for connecting flights either side. Secondly (and in my opinion more importantly), the paradise available when you get there is oh so worth the travel time, regardless of your flight path. For this trip a decade later, I had my sights set on visiting Koh Samui. I had never yet visited the island, having previously opted for Phuket on two occasions. So for my return to travel after the pandemic, I decided now would be as good a time as any to splurge on flights to Koh Samui and stay at the Four Seasons Koh Samui.

Escaping to the Four Seasons Chiang Mai

For as long as I can remember I have had a love affair with Thailand. In fact, I can probably even pinpoint the moment it happened and the love affair began. I was nineteen years of age when I first visited Thailand. On that trip I travelled straight to Phuket, spending a few nights in Bangkok on the way home to Australia.

But since that trip, I’ve been desperate to seek out more of the country. In particular, I have wanted to visit Chiang Mai.
