Bali and Thailand: an invitation to travel

Bali and Thailand: an invitation to travel

Mystical and hypnotic, Bali and Thailand are two dream destinations to discover with both family and friends.

The exceptional sites of Thailand


Unpack your suitcases in the ancient Kingdom of Siam, Thailand, here you will go on to discover a civilization frozen in time. Between tradition and modernity, Thailand surprises its travelers with its culture and relaxed lifestyle. Upon your arrival, you will be amazed by the bustling city of Bangkok. Capital of excess, Bangkok marvels with its colorful markets, lively bars and typical villages adjoining the city center. Let yourself be lulled by this urban tumult and the delights of the locals who will welcome you with open arms. Then go to Koh Samui, an Island that attracts tourists from around the world. Nicknamed the "Island of coconuts", Koh Samui is a haven favored by families. Treat yourself to a relaxing break on the fine sand and swim in the turquoise and warm waters. Change of scenery guaranteed!

To discover Thai culture, take a tour of Chiang Mai. A cultural capital, Chiang Mai seduces you with its wide variety of temples and mountainous landscapes around the city. Stroll through this old town, which you can explore by bike, then stroll through the maze of alleys to meet Buddhist monks. After a tour through the craft shops to bring back souvenirs of your trip, admire the imposing Doi Suthep, the most spectacular temple in Chiang Mai.

Finally, if you want to play sports and have fun, head to the Surin Islands and the Similan Islands, two small paradise spots known worldwide for their scuba diving spots. Organize a boat trip with your family to reach these two wonders from Khao Lak. Here you will discover the fascinating aquatic life as you swim alongside manta rays and whale sharks. Above the water, these islands are also worth a visit as they sport a backdrop covered with tropical jungle, white sand and splendid coral reefs.
 

Discovering Bali, "The Island of the Gods"


One can easily get lost in the green rice fields of Bali, nicknamed "the island of the Gods". Magnetic and fascinating, Bali is an Indonesian pearl in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Here, the beautiful beaches flow into lush forests, integrated perfectly with an enchantingly historical and religious culture. Discover this civilization that seduces travelers with its lifestyle and its bewitching gentleness.

During your stay, let yourself be enchanted by local crafts where authenticity and ancestral know-how are intertwined. Ideal for bringing back souvenirs of travel, these shops offer wooden sculptures, colorful masks and kites shaped like butterflies. When you come out of these shops, you may have the chance to attend a Balinese dance show. Dressed in silk and ikat, locals here surprise travelers with the precision of their movements, their joie de vivre and their indisputable grace.

Then head towards the myriad of Balinese temples that fascinate with their beauty as much as they do with their history. In particular, do not miss the Pura Luhur Uluwatu, perched on top of a cliff, isolated at the southwestern tip of the Bukit Peninsula, this picturesque temple overlooks the Indian Ocean. Dedicated to the deities of the sea, the Pura Luhur Uluwatu offers breathtaking views of cliffs and coasts. A real spectacle!

Bali is also a surfer's paradise, and more generally, water sports. If you are passionate about surfing, or just curious, go in search of the ultimate wave on the various spots of the island. While beginners will head to Canggu or Kuta, the more experienced will want to face the fiercest waves of Green Bowl Beach or Dreamland Beach. If you prefer to rest or even meditate, Bali’s numerous beaches offer the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. In particular, Kuta Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Here, the beach extends into an infinite rainbow of gold and turquoise.

After tasting Jimbaran's delicious marinated shrimp or a warung for lunch, discover Ubud, Bali's authentic cultural hub. Celebrated in Eat, Pray, Love, Ubud is undoubtedly the cultural center of the island. Here, traditional dance shows attract hundreds of spectators every night. From art galleries to museums, Ubud will enchant you for sure!

After  enjoying the jaw-dropping view of the green rice fields of Jatiluwih gracefully rippling like ribbons of greenery, take a trip to Seminyak, where local designer boutiques follow one another, accompanied by typical restaurants and small boutique hotels. Lombok is also worth a visit due to its spectacular natural spaces. In particular, if you are in good physical condition, we recommend climbing the volcano Gunung Rinjani, one of the largest volcanoes in the Indonesian archipelago. Though the road is challenging and winds all the way up to the top, your efforts will be rewarded once you reach your destination. From there you will enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding area including the sacred lake below, a spiritual landmark on the island.
