Evening at the Slate Hotel Thailand. A cool, fresh breeze wisks away all the mugginess of the day, and a fresh, tropical smell fills the air. As quickly as it rose, the sun begins to fade away among the horizon, turning the sky a golden, marigold yellow. It's off season in Thailand, so most of the hotel is empty, causing a serene, private feel, almost as if you were on a private island. You enter your hotel room for the first time, only to be astounded by what you see. A huge, floor to ceiling window gives a view of the liquid glass pool, and offers an incredible picture of the sunset. As soon as you step foot on the cool stone floor, all thoughts of jet lag and your long journey are whisked away with the cool breeze. You slip off your shoes, pull on a robe, and sink into the first evening of your Thailand getaway.
