My Jackie O Moment in Thailand
By Kerrin Trenorden
2 July 2013






I'm at dinner with a group of amazing ladies from Melbourne, at one of the most beautiful hotels I have stayed in, the SALA Hotel Phuket.  I overhear one of them speaking about something they referred to as ‘Their Jackie O Moment’.

She was explaining to other members of our group, how during her afternoon free, she was laying on her sun bed in her private pool villa under the massive sunhat that was supplied in the room, she had to stop and appreciate that this was as close as she was going to get to a life like Jackie O – her Jackie O moment.

This comment made me stop and think about all the ‘pinch me experiences’ I have had on trips to Thailand.  Experiences that I would not be able to have or really afford in other countries I have travelled to. It also made me realise that this feeling is my favourite thing about this country – the realisation that anyone can indulge in a moment of luxury for a fraction of the price of home or other destinations.

With Australia’s strong dollar and the amazing deals on offer to travellers, Thailand gives us the ability to stay in a top level room at a beautiful hotel in a better area for your family/honeymoon/boys or girls weekend away.  You can also enjoy $3.00 cocktails, a $30.00 seafood buffet dinner after your hour long $10.00 massage – and this is before I even mention the shopping!

Thailand’s ability to allow travellers to experience what I am referring to as ‘affordable luxury’ is why I believe that everyone should visit Thailand once in their life.  I strongly believe that everyone deserves the chance to have their own Jackie O moment………

Backtracking a bit – what has been my Jackie O moment you ask?   I have been lucky enough to have many!  Most of them in Thailand and all quite different but that is a story for another time!

Below had to be in the top 5 however with thanks to SALA Phuket!

For those wanting their own Jackie O moment, it's time to contact your local travel agent or visit www.thaiairways.com.au
