Buzzing city life, deserted white sand beaches and vibrant jungle adventures all coexist in wonderful Thailand, where limitless luxury, relaxation and new discoveries are waiting for you.
Bangkok will likely be your first encounter with Thailand, but this capital city and hub of South East Asia is far from just a convenient stopover. A diverse and cosmopolitan city with cultural attractions, like the Grand Palace and floating markets, haute cuisine dining, superb luxury and boutique hotels and truly memorable shopping and nightlife.
Thailand’s second city Chiang Mai is the perfect antidote to busy Bangkok, where you can breathe in the mountain air as you tour the city’s 300 Buddhist temples, some of which have stunning panoramic views and ornate ancient craftsmanship. The city provides easy access to the rural villages where you can hike in the national parks and meet some local elephants. Back in the city, the buzzing night bazaar is a must-see for souvenirs and street food.
Best time to visit
November → Early April.
Chiang Rai is a unique travel destination because of its place at the Golden Triangle, where the borders of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar meet. Outdoor adventurers will love white water rafting on the Ruak and Mekong rivers and trekking through the mountainous region will give you a glimpse at village life. Relax in divine luxury in a jungle spa hotel for the ultimate Thai experience.
The Andaman Islands and Phuket are arguably best seen from the water. Whether it’s a couple’s kayak or a luxury speedboat, cruising across the crystal-clear waters to find the perfect spot for lounging on a castaway beach or exploring magical lagoons will be an extraordinary experience. Don’t miss picturesque Phuket Old Town before retreating to your secluded luxury resort.
One of Thailand’s most popular islands, Koh Samui, still retains a sense of cool sophistication and relaxed vibe despite being a favourite for so many travellers in the know. Soak up the ambiance at one of many exclusive beach resorts and dive into the vibrant underwater scenery where whale sharks cut through the turquoise sea.
