January is the best time to check out Thailand's hottest new resorts, restaurants and hotels, according to Emily Flynn Vencat's report in Newsweek of tourist zones in recovery mode. Vencat suggests for travelers to the kingdom to visit Sirocco, the Skybar and the Lebua Hotel at the Lebua State Tower in Bangkok, as well as the Lisu Lodge near Chiang Mai. Vencat also highlights the Sarojin boutique hotel on Khao Lak beach, and the Six Senses Spa in Hua Hin.
