Boutique luxury Akaryn Hotel Group is encouraging visitors in the rainy season to enjoy artistic and architecturally inspired escapes with their Discover Thailand offering. Through this unique offer, visitors to the beautiful country can experience multiple destinations, properties and works of art throughout Thailand.

Travelers should fly into the main hub of Bangkok and stay at the akyra Thonglor. Venture on an excursion to Nakhon Pthom, an area less than an hour outside Bangkok, which offers exposure to a unique living sculpture. Wat Samphran is a 17 story cylindrical temple draped in a massive, twisting dragon. Its shimmering scales climb the tower of the wat, making it the perfect backdrop for selfies and a testament to the immense, architectural creativity displayed throughout SouthEast Asia.

For a more traditional art experience, visitors can then visit the Rose of the North, also known as Chiang Mai. Situated in an urban environment full of emerging artists, the akyra Manor Hotel in Chiang Mai has collaborated with a local watercolorist, Kritika Buabusya. Her pop-up exhibition "Floral Choreography" is inspired by the mythological Greek concept of Arcadia, and depicts scenes of the Thai countryside. The Exhibit is on now through September 2017.
