More About Thailand

Vibrant cities, world-renowned spas, tribal villages, stunning beaches...Thailand has it all. The capital city of Bangkok is set on the Chao Phraya River and offers temples, street markets and plenty of entertainment options for the day and evening. It‘s a place of hustle and bustle where you'll have a vibrant holiday experience and should sample plenty of the local cuisine which is sure to tantalise your tastebuds. Getting around can be a challenge in Bangkok due to the volume of traffic. However, there are plenty of travel options to choose from so you should be able to make your way to where you want to go with relative ease. There are local and private river boats, buses, plenty of taxis, fleets of colourful three-wheeled tuk tuks, the Metropolitan Rapid Transport System (MRT) - the city's underground network system and the fantastic Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS Skytrain) - and elevated train system which has 35 stations and two lines. For travelling long distances, take an internal flight using one of the domestic airlines. Chiang Rai is in the northern province of Thailand and is a cultural must-see. It lies to the South West and boasts 300 temples - it's just the place to experience an elephant ride and a spot of rural living plus you can learn about the lives of the local hill tribes. From there, you could choose to visit one of the coastal resorts where you can find anything from the traditional to lively beach resorts and stunning tropical hideaways plus idyllic islands. One of our personal favourites is Krabi, famous for its lengthy coastline. The Khao Lak area has some fantastic national parks and Phuket has a wide choice of beaches plus all the nightlife you could wish for.

Leisure Activities


A visit to the capital of Thailand, Bangkok, is a fantastic experience. It has an atmosphere all of its own with sights, sounds and smells (in a good way!) which are truly unique to this magnificent city. Highlights include the stunning architecture of the Grand Palace which has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam since 1782. These days, it’s not used by the Royal Family apart from for official state functions.

Phi Phi Islands

The Phi Phi Islands are situated between Phuket and the mainland in the Strait of Malacca. These sensational islands are the ideal tropical getaway with stunning scenery and fabulous beaches. They have been used as locations by many film makers including for scenes in films such as James Bond and Leonard Di Caprio’s, The Beach.


A very popular destination for tourists who are looking for sun, sea and sand. It has no less than 30 beaches, ranging from remote and quiet on the north coast, such as Kamala beach, to the frenetic pace of Patong beach with its wide variety of activities and night life.
