Travellers staying at the luxury Sala boutique hotels in Bangkok, Ayutthaya and Chiang Mai can now experience a 12-hour Sala Journeys programme and indulge in local traditions and authentic dining.

 In Bangkok, guests can arrange their self-guided walking tour to explore Rattanakosin Island. The itinerary includes some of the classics – such as Wat Po, Wat Arun, and the legend behind their respective giants – as well as some local secrets including an unassuming roadside cart which has been selling soy milk pudding and grass jelly desserts for more than 50 years.

“The Sala boutique experience is reflected in SALA Journeys which showcase the destination through personal recommendations,” said Volkert Geertsen, general manager.

The Sala Journey continues upstream and back in time to the ancient city of Ayutthaya. Guests can spend 12 hours browsing around the quirky Million Toys Museum and enjoying Ayutthaya’s much-loved culinary delicacies and sweets like roti saimai, boat noodles and giant river prawns.

“We are excited to let our guests experience the destination as we do. Sala Journeys are designed by our team for guests to see, hear, smell, and taste the best of the destination,” said Nicolas Reschke, group director of business development, SALA Hospitality Group.

Further north still, a 12-hour sightseeing tour to Wat Ket unearths cultural and culinary treasures in Sala Lanna Chiang Mai’s riverside neighbourhood. From dinosaur-shaped dough sticks and herb-packed sai oua northern sausages to a famed young coconut pie and khao soi chicken noodle curry, travellers are in for a delicious adventure. Guests will also learn about the love story that built a bridge, as well as have the opportunity to delve into the local arts scene.
