Sunset at one of my favorite spots in Krabi
Sunset at one of my favorite spots in Krabi

With its incomparable natural beauty, rich culture, and internationally beloved cuisine, is there any country on more people’s bucket lists than Thailand?  The Land of a Thousand Smiles is a destination that never fails to impress, whether it’s your first visit or your fiftieth.  I should know - there’s a reason I lived here and continue to visit every chance I get!

Thailand offers such an abundance of incredible offerings that it’s hard to know where to begin, and that’s where I can help you shape the vacation of your dreams.  Whether you want to explore the endless array of gorgeous temples and kaleidoscopic night markets of Chiang Mai, taste the Michelin starred street food and award winning haute cuisine of Bangkok, or simply kick back on one of the many emerald isles arising from the azure waters of the south, I can point you to the very best properties, guides, and experiences.

I lived in Bangkok, and I can help you get underneath the surface of one of Asia’s most dynamic cities.  I know the hippest restaurants, chicest bars, and most stunning hotels.  But I also know the best streets to eat, markets to shop, and hidden gems to explore across the other City of Angels.  See what everyone else is missing!

Chiang Mai remains a home away from home for me, and I know it front to back.  Many in Thailand consider it to be the beating heart of Thai culture, and with good cause.  For over 700 years the city has been a center of spirituality, and boasts some 300 stunning temples.   The local cuisine is famed countrywide, and I keep an extensive list of all the best places to sample their distinct delicacies. I also know the best places to go and visit the elephants for which the city is widely known, as well as which to avoid for exploitative practices.  

No trip to Thailand would be complete without exploring some of the stunning beaches and islands for which it is famous.  Here again I can guide you to the very best properties from Phuket to Koh Phangan, Krabi to Koh Samui, and beyond!   I’ve island hopped here like a skipping stone, and whether it’s diving, dining, or luxuriating on private beaches I know the top of the top spots.  I’ll tell you when to be where to catch the best weather and beat the crowds, and how to make your experience in the south really standout!  

Leave the cookie cutter tours and mediocre packages behind and discover what Thailand really has to offer!  I have personally stayed in and visited virtually every luxury property in the whole country, and can match you to wherever suits your needs best.  Want to get off the beaten path and explore the ancient ruins of Ayutthaya or Sukhothai, trek through hill tribe villages outside of Pai, or escape to the ultra exclusive island resort of Soneva Kiri?  I’ve got you covered no matter what draws you to Thailand.  I can get you any and everywhere in this country, and I can connect you with second-to-none guides to ensure that whatever your interests, they will be exceeded!

Incredible India

Reviewed By Lisa S. - Los Angeles | Traveled to India ~ Central Asia
I was having a hard time figuring out if I could even get to all the places I wanted to see, and Arthur put it all together for me perfectly. Plus he recommended a few places that I had never heard of that ended up being highlights! Thanks again!

Beautiful Japan

Reviewed By Frank L. - New York | Traveled to Japan ~ East and Southeast Asia
I visited Tokyo once years ago and ever since I’ve always wanted to go back and see more of Japan. Arthur helped me figure out how to really get the most out of my trip, and pointed me to some interesting highlights I would almost certainly have missed! Plus his restaurant recommendations were amazing! I highly recommend him.

Perfect Trip

Reviewed By Sara K. - Los Angeles | Traveled to Japan ~ East and Southeast Asia
My mother has always talked about visiting Japan with me, but when I finally decided I was going to make it happen, I realized I didn’t know where to start. Thankfully Arthur was such a giant help! I really don’t think I could’ve done it without him. He was so nice and easy to work with, and the trip was so perfect. Thank you again!

Incredible Thailand Trip

Reviewed By Mitch N. - Los Angeles | Traveled to Thailand ~ East and Southeast Asia
I really wanted to get off the beaten path in Thailand and see some out of the way places, and Arthur not only got me there comfortably, the guides he found were seriously incredible. It was an amazing itinerary, and I appreciated that he kept amending it for me to get it where I wanted it. I would recommend to anyone that you work with him.

Amazing Family Thailand Trip

Reviewed By Tim C. - Los Angeles | Traveled to Thailand ~ East and Southeast Asia
We were really excited to take our kids to Asia, and the trip Arthur planned for us couldn’t have gone any better! We had some special concerns around traveling with one of our children, and he ensured that we had everything set up exactly as we needed. Everything went so smoothly right from when we got off the airplane; I’ver never had such great service on an international trip before! Can’t recommend him enough!

Fantastic Service

Reviewed By Roy K. - San Francisco | Traveled to India ~ Central Asia
Arthur arranged a family trip to Rajasthan for me, and I couldn’t be happier with the level of service. He really made sure we saw all of the most impressive sights, and his recommendations for food were also quite excellent. We were very pleased with our hotel rooms and most especially with our guides. I highly recommend him.

Tiger Adventure

Reviewed By Linda B. - Chicago | Traveled to India ~ Central Asia
It has always been a dream of mine to see a tiger in the wild, and Arthur helped make that happen. Almost a dozen of them in fact, and even cubs! I can’t believe how lucky I was, but I know it wouldn’t have happened if Arthur hadn’t gotten me to Kanha and Pench when he did. My whole trip was amazing, and I loved every single place I stayed, even in Delhi. I would use Arthur again any day!

Best Trip Ever

Reviewed By Rick & Donna S - Miami | Traveled to Thailand ~ East and Southeast Asia
I’ve worked with travel agents and tour companies in the past, but the level of service I got from Arthur was really something else. My wife and I were trying to put together a trip to Thailand, Laos and Cambodia and we were having a hard time choosing where we wanted to go with our time, figuring out how best to get from one to the other, what order, and so forth. Arthur really took time to listen to what we wanted and the trip he built was outstanding. We both agree that it’s one of the best trips we’ve ever been on!
