A Typical Elephant
One particular travel attraction in Samphran that will definitely take the vote of your kids is the Samphran Elephant Grounds & Zoo.
This visitor attraction is set in several hectares of a verdant garden complex, wherein two amusing crocodile wrestling shows and elephant shows are being presented every day. Get more details on this Samphran attraction, wherein admission starts at 500B, in this review written on travel-centered site, called Fodor’s:
Here you can take elephant rides and watch a 30-minute performance in which elephants haul logs, play soccer, and reenact the Yutha Harti, a 16th-century elephant-back battle between a Thai king and an invading Burmese prince. The facilities are a bit dated, and the elephants don't seem to be in great shape—ultimately it's not worth it if you don't have kids. Other attractions include an orchid nursery. Avoid the degrading "crocodile wrestling" show, in which practically comatose animals are tormented and dragged around by their tails.

The Four Seasons Miami
The Four Seasons Miami Hotel features 70 floors of business-like structural design, and while you won’t expect it to be similar to the rest of the luxurious resorts dotting the beach area, you still won’t be turned off by the expensively lavish suites and guestrooms that it has to offer.
Get more details on the Four Seasons Miami Hotel, including its flawless hotel service and spectacular rooms overlooking the Biscayne Bay, in this review created by the leading travel site, called Fodor’s:
Stepping from downtown's busy, business-centric Brickell Avenue into this plush sanctuary, you enter a world of serenity—a soothing water wall greets you, the understated rooms impress you, and the seventh-floor, 2-acre-pool terrace relaxes you. Inside, a cavernous lobby houses larger-than-life sculptures commissioned by local and Latin American artists. Although the pool oasis overlooks downtown Miami, it's still easy to forget you're in the middle of the city, especially when strolling through the foot-deep wading pool with 24 palm tree "islands."

A Typical Cocktail
One thing that stands out is they are all wondrous in their deceptive simplicity and I am regularly astounded at how complex and beautiful the drinks taste. In addition to flavor, aroma is also a big inspiration here, something that stands out from many of the even the best cocktail bars. One such example is the ‘La Rose’ which infuses a sugar cube with “English rose garden aromatics” and simply tops with Champagne. The result is like taking a walk in an English rose garden; the aroma and flavor develops as the sugar cube dissolves to create the impression of walking through the flower beds and experiencing the different smells that you encounter.

If you’re considering spending the Christmas holidays in the Bahamas, then you’re in for some good Caribbean fun as this part of the globe celebrates Junkanoo on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day with lively street parade and traditional music.
If you particularly want to take witness of the biggest Junkanoo parade, then you’ll have to choose the capital city of Nassau as your main holiday destination. Even NY Times Travel writer BAZ DREISINGER agrees that Junkanoo is one of the must-sees in the many festivals in the Caribbean (“A Party to Remember, an Island at a Time”). Here’s an excerpt of his travel article:
Why should you do Christmas and New Year’s — again — when you can do Carnival? In fact, you can do all three in the Bahamas. The celebration, known as Junkanoo, is staged on various Bahamian islands (Nassau hosts the biggest) and kicks off before dawn on Dec. 26, then resurfaces in the wee hours of New Year’s Day. What began as a slave holiday during Christmas time is now an all-out extravaganza. The sights are dazzling: floats, masks and feathers more vibrant than the Caribbean Sea, itself a brilliant backdrop. Sounds, though, steal the show. Traditional instruments like conch-shell horns; “goombay” drums made of goatskin and oil barrels; cow bells; scrapers made from washboards and spoons serve up Bahamian “rake and scrape” music, which sounds like the Caribbean version of, well, a hoedown.

Owned by Starwood, this is a chain’s take on boutique aimed at the 20- and 30-somethings in Downtown Brooklyn. The only borough-centric items I saw were works by local artists in the lobby and Brooklyn Summer Ale on tap at the bar. But there’s enough outside the hotel for guests to get their fix… The king suite the general manager showed me had a 1970s motif with a plush blue carpet, a khaki green headboard and colorful striped throw pillows. One wall was outfitted with a panoramic photo of the Brooklyn Bridge, another with a 42-inch LCD TV; a simple, wood desk faced a window. The hotel has a low-key rooftop lounge with dancing.
