Young Thais are drawn by the big city lifestyle
An avalanche of fun awaits you with today's escape to the mountain playground of Whistler, British Columbia.
Pack your gear and head for the pristine wilderness of the Coast Mountains, where you'll spend two nights at the Whistler Cascade Lodge Hotel ($208), an all-suite property located at the entrance to Whistler Village (bonus: you can book a third night for free, resulting in a 68% discount).
Scale the heights of relaxation during your stay in a one-bedroom suite. Park your car, grab your complimentary gift basket, and revel in Canada's jaw-dropping scenery from the windows of your lodge-style suite — which comes equipped with a full kitchen, washer and dryer, HD flat-screen televisions, complimentary DVD rental, and free Wi-fi.
Soak in the majestic vistas while taking a dip in one of the two outdoor hot tubs or one of the largest outdoor heated pools in Whistler. Cruise along the streets of Whistler Village, lined with boutiques, galleries, and world-class restaurants.
Meander landscaped trails leading from the village to Lost Lake, where built-in barbecues and picnic tables allow you to dine in mellow majesty.
Pick up the pace with a rigorous hike through the Ancient Cedars Grove, a forest of 900-year-old trees. Encounter Whistler wilderness with a zip-line tour. Or, if skiing peaks your interest, book your escape later in the season, to enjoy Cascade Lodge's easy access to the lifts.
Whistler, ranked by Travel + Leisure as North America's "it ski destination", transforms from a summer retreat into a winter wonderland mid-November.
Your pulse races with today’s mountain escape, where you'll gorge yourself on staggering scenery, fine dining, and unsurpassed skiing — without gouging your vacation fund.
