Published 5 months ago • 5 min read

Dear Reader,

Last week, we highlighted five extraordinary, one-of-a-kind travel experiences that we believe are ideal luxury getaways for JourneyWoman. These journeys offer a stylish travel experience, and are organised by Girls Guide to the World, a women-owned, highly trusted travel company that is part of our Women's Travel Directory.

Travelling with Girls' Guide to the World offers a unique experience compared to solo travel, family trips, or large packaged group tours. A recent traveler from Australia said "I am officially besotted (with France) thanks to you and the amazing experience you provided. You truly changed my life and I am forever grateful."

Here are some of their signature offerings:

  • Women-only
  • Sisterhood guaranteed
  • Single rooms in 4-5* hotels or lodge
  • Wine with dinner
  • Fit for foodies
  • Extremely small groups 6-10
  • Exceptional, off the radar experiences

Don't forget - Girls' Guide is extending a special VIP welcome gift to JourneyWoman travellers who make reservations for any of the featured trips listed below. Simply enter the code JWOMAN during checkout, and a delightful surprise will await you.

Explore James Bond island before the tourists arrive, walk one of the world’s most spectacular beaches on Krabi, visit an enormous Buddha in Phuket, swim in crystal clear turquoise waters, and see thousands of stars while afloat in our own private 45’ catamaran, have a cocktail at a tiny bar on a reef-edge island. This is the way the islands of Thailand are meant to be seen.
