Other than the chill Mediterranean vibes and excellent eateries, you’ll be spoiled with the superb greeneries all around. But what will blow your mind is the roaming four-legged furry animals such as sheep, alpacas, llamas and donkeys you can feed and pet to your heart’s content.

Wine and Dine Like a Pro at PB Valley Khao Yai Winery

by Bonny for SweetEscape in Khao Yai

Bring you hat and sunnies, for thing is about to be very classy in Khao Yai’s vineyard and winery. Thanks to the higher altitude and temperature during the winter season, this city comes alive with choices of fine wines – from Shiraz, Chenin Blanc to Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines in this particular joint are made by a certified Thai winemaker with relatively light, sweet and refreshing aftertaste.

The sunflower season in Khao Yai normally starts in November and ends around January and February. It is also one of the top reasons why travelers prefer to time their visit well, so they can bask in the stunning yellow fields as far as the eye can see. When you get to the Sunflower Field of Khao Yai, it is impossible not to feel cheerful and wear a big grin on your face. This therapeutic mood is a natural effect of both the brightest blue sky and vibrant yellow in perfect combo. So whenever the camera is ready, strike a pose and show that happy face to us!

Lexi Gancayco's Healthy Summer
20 May 2019STORIESBY SweetEscape

Fitness enthusiast and instructor Lexi Gancayco shared her healthy tips to prepare yourselves to welcome summer!

1. How Do You Get Your Summer Body Ready?

by Kristanto for SweetEscape in Bali

Honestly I don't think there's such a thing as a 'Summer Body'. You'd want to keep your body healthy and fit consistenly all year round. But I think how you keep your body consistently healthy and fit is really by having a good balance of consistent work out and a balanced diet; not depriving yourselves of anything but not indulging too much on good food as well.

2. When You Go On A Holiday Sometimes Your Diet and Fitness Regime Got Messed Up. How Do You Maintain Your Fitness During Trips?

by Kristanto for SweetEscape in Bali
by Kristanto for SweetEscape in Bali

Of course when you are on holidays or vacations, you really should maximize the whole experience of wherever you are, so you should not deprive yourselves of any experience–including food–, but as I mentioned before, you should also not indulge yourselves too much. It's all about balance. For example, if you know that you're going to have a big meal that night, do a lot of activities like walking or working out in the hotel for 30-45 mins in the next morning. You should not even do it everyday, doing some workout every other day is enough. Basically, watch what you eat; it's all about balance.

3. Any Must-Have Healthy Food / Drink For Your Travels?

by Kristanto for SweetEscape in Bali

Water! Wherever you go, bring water with you. I had to learn this the hard way because I was on vacation last year and I fainted out of dehydration. I didn't realize that I didn't have enough water. So wherever you go, fill up a water bottle with you, and keep yourself hydrated.
