Thailand often plays tricks on your senses...the taste food that is perhaps more spicy or creatively playful than you can imagine, the sight of beaches so exquisite they look other-worldly, the sounds the chaotic noise of the city streets where somehow life flows at a strangely fluid pace, and believing that luxury this tremendous can actually be affordable. Case in point, the Conrad Bangkok. A palatial property in the heart of the business district, and more importantly close to the city's best shopping at alarmingly affordable prices. Rooms are litoral cocoons of stylish design and top technology, done up in silks, sweet-dream-inducing bedding, entertainment systems, and note to those traveling kids or husbands that refuse to grow up... Playstation 3 in the Suites.

Working off the delicacies is easy here, take advantage of individual classes for yoga, boxing, Pilates and Tai Chi or opt for a spa treatment, especially with the Explorateur discount. It's well worth the splurge.
