Thailand is a golden gem of Southeast Asia, with so much to see and do for every type of holiday-maker. Escape to a country rich with culture, picture-perfect beaches and vast tropical jungles. Famously known as the ‘Land of a Thousand Smiles’, Thailand welcomes all visitors with open arms, offering a true fusion of beachside zen, dynamic city breaks and fine natural wonders.
Bangkok is where most begin their journey, enjoying the country’s finest street-life and a spot of urban exploration. Beneath the soaring sky scrapers and bright city lights, there are surprises waiting to be uncovered: captivating markets, several remarkable golden temples and even a water taxi on the canal.
Head south to find a cluster of islands both east and west of the mainland. Paradise island, Koh Samui is blessed with sunshine and tropical warmth all year round along with an array of vibrant restaurants and bars to get your buzz fix. Koh Phi Phi’s postcard beaches and azure seas are framed by jagged cliffs, painting the perfect island portrait. Railay Beach, often referred to as the nation’s most spectacular beach, is just a short long-tail boat ride from the relaxing city of Krabi.
In the northern part of Thailand, you’ll find the beautiful and leafy Chiang Mai surrounded by lush jungles and hills. Known as the ‘rose of the north’, Chiang Mai offers a deep historical experience, wonderful temples and charming night markets. Nearby city Chiang Rai is much quieter and cooler making for the perfect place to sightsee, especially when there’s an impressive White Temple to explore. For those chasing a diverse trip, Thailand is the place to go.

Thailand’s landscape is so diverse, providing endless opportunities for every visitor – nature enthusiasts can enjoy green tropical jungles, breath-taking mountain views and pristine beaches while city lovers can get lost in the hustle and bustle of urban temples, luxury malls and street-side food stalls.
The country lives up to its name, ‘Land of a Thousand Smiles’ with flying colours. Thai people are not only welcoming, hospitable and respectful, but also hold a strong sense of national pride and identity. The culture is deeply spiritual and influenced by religion with most traditions stemming from Buddhist values.
Thai food is famously enjoyed around the globe, and for good reason. Fragrant, fresh and flavoursome, every dish is filled with aromatic spices and herbs to tantalise the taste buds. Cuisine here uses the principle of harmony to blend flavours together, creating sumptuous dishes to leave you wanting more.
With thousands of islands and vast stretches of coastline, it’s unsurprising that Thailand homes many mind-blowing beaches. It’s often referred to as having some of the most sublime beaches in the world, boasting calm emerald waters, perfectly soft sand and dramatic rocky backdrops. Those in search for a luxurious and lazy water-side experience are spoilt for choice.
Spend a day interacting with rescued elephants. Enjoy the beauty of these gentle giants whilst feeding them fruity treats, walking in the jungle and bathing them. Meet these majestic creatures and encounter their playful side before tucking into a Thai feast.
Indulge in a luxury overnight stay at a resort on the River Kwai. Escape to a location where rest and relaxation is encouraged whilst you’re surrounded by lush green mountains, overgrown jungle and calming waters.
Enter a cultural phenomenon on Thailand’s canals where locals sell an abundance of delicious food and goods. Float along and feel the buzz as different colours, sounds and smells pass you by on a true exciting and sensory experience.
Head back in time to the ancient ruins found in Thailand’s old capital of Ayutthaya. As a UNESCO World Heritage site and with their own Siamese style, these gigantic and ornate monasteries are well worth the visit.
Lay back and relax on the paradise Phi Phi islands. With some of the most beautifully known beaches in the world, it’s not hard to understand why you should visit here. Sunbathe on the white sand while looking out to stunning scenic views or experience the amazing marine life on a snorkelling trip.
Aboard a luxury vessel, enjoy an indulgent dinner on the ‘River of Kings’ with top-class cuisine, great entertainment and beautiful décor. Watch the sunset and spot Bangkok’s famous landmarks on this unique dining experience.
Drinks don’t get much better than when you have panoramic views of Bangkok’s stunning cityscape. Soak up the bright lights, sky scrapers and impressive architecture from impressive heights as you sip on a cocktail or two.
Immerse yourself in an oasis of nature on a tour through Khao Sok National Park. See the spectacular Cheow Lan Lake and limestone cliff scenery from a boat before kayaking in the welcoming waters. Finish it off with a jungle trek and a traditional Thai lunch on the lake.
