The magical kingdom of Thailand boasts a heady mix of buzzing cities, ancient culture, stunningly beautiful beaches and dramatic scenery. The capital Bangkok is a bustling, busy and fast-moving metropolis. This is a city where ancient culture and traditions contrast with the march of modernity. Floating markets and ancient temples rub shoulders with skyscrapers and neon lights. Chaotic yet enchanting, Bangkok is an absolute must for any first-time visitor to Thailand.
In the north Chiang Mai and the area known as The Golden Triangle is the antithesis to Bangkok. Chiang Mai is surrounded by lush countryside and enjoys a scenic mountainous backdrop and fascinating architecture. Heading northeast, Chiang Rai enjoys a more remote location and is an excellent place for the more adventurous to explore jungles and rivers. A stay in a luxurious tented camp in this region, with the opportunity to interact with the majestic resident elephants, may well be the highlight of any sojourn in Thailand.
The south of Thailand is incredibly beautiful and despite its popularity, gloriously secluded coves, beaches and authentic places can still be explored. The region is home to some of the country’s most picturesque National Parks including Ang Thong, Khao Sok and Phang Nga. Snorkelling and diving in the south of Thailand is some of the best in the world and there is also ample opportunity to venture out on charter boats for a day or longer. As the southwest and northeast monsoons affect each coast at opposing times this affords the possibility to enjoy beach time for most of the year.
Known as the land of smiles, the people of Thailand are renowned for their superb unassuming, friendly and genuine hospitality as well as their heavenly cuisine. A holiday in Thailand is always a gastronomic delight.
