Thailand is known for many things: stunning beaches, zesty food and majestic elephants. Thai wines, on the other hand, have yet to make their mark. But The Peninsula Bangkok and Hua Hin Hills Vineyard - the home of Monsoon Valley wines - are changing that. Pairing food and wine, the hotel and the vineyard are offering a memorable day trip for guests.

Guests can explore an ancient elephant corral - where vines are planted - while on an elephant ride and sample flagship wines from the Monsoon Valley line.

The day trip, priced at US$8,650 per person, also includes a ride in the hotel's private helicopter, a designated limousine pick-up, and a gourmet lunch and wine pairing.
