My prize for an evening 'slaving away' on my MacBook Air in Chiang Mai, liaising with my London 'team', regarding the launch of this travel blog is this photo of Four Seasons Bali at Sayan, where I am heading for the pre-Christmas season.
I was nervous about flying on Thai Airways, after reading reviews of their tired Business Class lounge at Bangkok and, and having been staying in the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok with its butler service, wondered how the ‘intense’ Thai service culture would fit with the Four Seasons’ Golden Rule philosophy to “treat others as you would want to be treated yourself”.
Here are the pictures from the latest article about our adventures in Chiang Mai.
Si Frew has lived in the UK, Bermuda, Qatar, Cyprus & the Cayman Islands. During this time he met Whoopi Goldberg (in Claridge's), Mike Tyson (in the Concorde Lounge at JFK) , Gordon Ramsay (in the Doha Four Seasons), Chris Eubanks (in The Dorchester), Cherie Blair (in Bermuda & again in the Doha Four Seasons) etc. There are funny stories attached to all these interactions, feel free to ask Si about them when you meet him.
