The alarm clock goes off in darkness, while the commutes to and from work are dreary, dark and damp.
The mercury is seemingly stuck near freezing for months on end.
At this time of year, no sun often translates into no fun.
Air Canada, however, can change all of that.

Plus, The Tourism Authority of Thailand can help you plan your trip to this slice of paradise and provide you with any number of things to see and do.
Now, let's delve into three must-visit spots that will elevate your Thai adventure to unforgettable heights.
This is the ideal destination to trade in the white stuff falling from the sky here in Canada, for cotton candy seascapes, and endless white sand beaches.
Located about two kilometres south of Ko Adang in the Andaman Sea, Ko Lipe is replete with beautiful bays, soft sandy beaches and coral surrounding the island. Often considered one of the best destinations in the country for scuba diving and the perfect location for those seeking an escape on an idyllic island away from the crowds. Whether you are a backpacker or a luxury traveller, this charming island will not disappoint.
Ko Lipe is regarded as one Thailand’s busier beaches due to its sheer volume of endless tourist activities: walking streets, resorts, restaurants, transfer points for passenger boats and excursion boats to different islands. Hat Sunrise, or Hat Chao Le, is a beach where you can watch the beautiful sunrise with fine white sand.
Hat Sunset is where visitors can watch a serene sunset in a distinctly intimate atmosphere free of crowds: it's peaceful, private and perfect for swimming.
Than Bok Khorani National Park
Than Bok Khorani National Park is a 121-square kilometre, supernatural gem consisting of lush jungles, eye-popping flora and fauna, and majestic undersea vegetation.
Located in Amphoe Ao Luk, the park’s pristine landscape is highlighted by a series of limestone mountains, evergreen and mangrove forests, and numerous intimate islands.
Two walking trails are available: a one-kilometre path within the national park, and a three–four-kilometre trail linking the park to a nearby mangrove forest.
The Grand Palace
Extravagance and history converge at one of Thailand’s most magnificent buildings, the Grand Palace, located in the heart of Bangkok. Since the founding of Bangkok as the nation’s capital by King Rama I, the Grand Palace has been the major architectural symbol of the Thai Royal family since 1785.
The palace is used for hosting royal ceremonies and welcoming the king's guests, state guests, and other foreign dignitaries. It is also a place where remains of kings and high-ranking members of the royal family were situated before cremation.
To get there, Air Canada flies you to Thailand with ease and comfort with a choice of three classes of service, along with more than 3,400 hours of in-flight entertainment.
