Thailand, the very word evokes magic and images of beautiful tropical beaches and blue skies. Thailand, known as the Land of Smiles, is the most popular destination in Southeast Asia thanks to its developed tourist industry and infrastructure, its friendly population and its fabulous food. See this incredible country, from the northern jungles and mountains around Chiang Mai, where treks through the dense forests reconnect you to nature in all its glory, to the crystal-clear waters of the Gulf of Thailand where golden sands await you and the soft lapping of the waves will lull you to sleep at night. Enjoy city life like you have never seen before in Bangkok, one of the world’s most vibrant cities, where you can dine on the very best Thai food you’ll ever have in your life.
Reasons to visit
Package holidays to Thailand are available for every pocket. From the backpacking beach holidays to some of the most luxurious hotels in the world, there’s something for everyone. Whatever size your budget, every visitor to this wonderful country must try a traditional Thai massage, which has been practised here for over 2,500 years. Working on the belief that the body contains invisible energy lines, the masseur seeks to unblock through pressure which lets the energy flow freely and energises the body and soul. Whatever the theory the result is sublime.
Things to see and do
We offer a range of destinations to visit in Thailand that offer visitors the perfect resorts forfamily holidays or city breaks for the more adventurous. Try a Tour and Stay holiday, where you can see some of this magical country and visit some of its beautiful sights and then round it off with a relaxing week on the beach. Or visit more than one resort with a Two Centre Holiday, with a week swimming in the Gulf of Thailand and another lazing beside the Andaman Sea.
Alternatively head off for the island of Koh Samui and slip into sandy utopia where you will feel yourself de-stressing day by day or across the Gulf to Pattaya with its endless shores and buzzing nightlife. Bangkok is calling, with its temples and canals so try it out for size and then head out to Phuket where the legend began. For all the millions of visitors, Thailand retains its soul and character. Thai’s are remarkably friendly, as is evident in the number of people who extend their holidays well beyond their original dates. Many even stay forever.
Wildlife is the main draw for family activities in Thailand, and the Maesa Elephant Camp and Chiang Mai Zoo are the ideal places for kids to get close to exotic animals. If they prefer an activity based adventure, then Chiang Mai Rock Climbing Adventures is ideal for those over eight.
Visiting Thailand is popular between November and February, when it rains the least and it is not too hot. Southern Thailand temperatures tend to even out all year round, whereas northern Thailand can be subject to extreme heat with temperatures climbing above 40C between March and May.
