by: Kip Lambert

There we were on a beautiful beach in Koh Samui, Thailand—a magical beach just below the Four Seasons Resort nestled neatly on a palm-tree covered hillside, spectacular views from every angle. We had just finished throwing each other around a ring in a genuine Muay Thai Boxing Class, the culmination of an incredible week experiencing Thailand for the first time as hosted Incentive Travel Buyers from the USA.

December 21, 2018

by: Shayna Sirstins
