Journey into the ‘Land of Smiles’ and discover a world of timeless charm and beauty. An alluring blend of remote hill tribes, golden beaches, floating markets, exotic flavours and extraordinary Buddhist wats, Thailand is a feast for all the senses.
Most journeys begin in Bangkok, the high-octane capital where you can wonder at the architectural marvel of the Grand Palace, visit fantastical temples, shop in huge outdoor markets and feast on mouth-watering street food (or in Michelin restaurants). Don’t miss out on a water taxi ride through the labyrinth of canals known as the Klongs for a better understanding of the city’s ‘Venice of the East’ nickname.
You can then venture north into the enchanting realms of Chiang Rai and the Golden Triangle, a beautiful landscape of forest and jungle scattered with ancient temples and traditional hill tribe villages. Here too lies 700-year-old Chiang Mai and its famous night market where you can bargain for everything from lacquered boxes and jewellery to parchment parasols and Thai silk.
And when it comes to beaches, Thailand has some of the world’s finest, its coastline stretching along both the Andaman Sea and Gulf Coast in addition to countless islands and islets. To really relax, head south to the tropical paradises of Phuket and Koh Samui, each an Indian Ocean pearl of palm-fringed beach, aquamarine sea and lush, verdant rainforest where world-class resorts abound.
