Thailand has grown into Southeast Asia’s top holiday destination and for good reason, as it offers something for almost anyone. The modern bustle of Bangkok contrasts with the culture and history of Chiang Mai, where you will find some of the best food and markets in the country. In between, UNESCO-listed ruins at Ayutthaya and Sukhothai offer a tranquil glimpse into the Thailand of old.
Adventure-seekers are also well catered for with biking, rafting, ziplining, kayaking, trekking and much more on offer, especially in the mountainous north that is home to numerous hilltribe peoples. If it’s wildlife you’re looking for, you can spot tropical birds and animals and dive on world-class reefs in Thailand’s national parks, while no trip would be complete without a visit to an elephant sanctuary.
Of course, sun and sea and stunning beaches are what Thailand is really famous for and its white sands lapped by turquoise waters and backed by dramatic limestone cliffs will not disappoint…so what are you waiting for?
