What’s on this weekend…
The weather has been a little dreary, so we’re hoping for sun this weekend for the much anticipated Clockenflap! Or else we may just hide inside, wrapped up with a blanket and start planning our next weekend trip with Flight Centre. And with Thanksgiving coming up this week, make sure you’ve got your turkey sorted with our handy dining guide…
The year is coming to a close, so what better time is there to start planning for 2018? With public holidays giving us six long weekends to look forward to next year, we have plenty of opportunities to jet off for a weekend adventure! Located on the Gulf of Thailand, the charming fishing village of Cha-Am is home to Thailand’s longest white sand beach, perfect for soaking up the sun. So, with Flight Centre’s amazing new deal, we’re hard pushed to think of an excuse not to book our next trip. Book now to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a two-night stay at chic and contemporary SO Sofitel Hua Hin for just $2,499, including daily breakfast, return airport transfers, unlimited Wi-Fi access, a complimentary in-room private bar, along with your choice of either a 60-minute Thai Massage for two at SoSpa, or a three-course set dinner for two at Beach Society. Situated directly on Cha-Am beach, the pristine sands and turquoise ocean will lie right on your doorstep, with the hotel’s rooftop pool and indulgent spa offering the ideal refuge to relax and refresh…
When: The offer is valid until the end of November, 2017, for travel between November 2017 to April 2018, subject to availability.
