Fruity festivities

Drive to Thailand's East this month and next to experience a really juicy weekend. From May to June, the eastern provinces - Rayong, Chanthaburi, Prachin Buri and Trat - are organising "Eat at the Garden" festivals for fruit lovers and weekenders to sample the finest fruit on the spot. Durian, rambutan, mangosteen and salacca are the highlights of these annual tropical treats. For more information, visit www.TravelEastThailand.org.

Leaving the traffic behind

Hotels, spas and car rental firms will be offering special packages to travellers hitting the road anytime from Sunday to Thursday. Expect special room rates - two nights for the price of one, for example - and chance to win air tickets. The fair continues until Sunday.

Thailand tops spa destination list

Thailand's spa industry makes a bold statement as the country is named the Best Spa Destination at GeoSpa AsiaSpa India Awards 2012-2013.
