Leisure & Activities

Bangkok
A visit to the capital of Thailand, Bangkok, is a fantastic experience. It has an atmosphere all of its’ own with its sights, sounds and smells (in a good way) which are truly unique to this magnificent city. Highlights include the Grand Palace, with its stunning architecture. It has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam since 1782, but these days, it’s not used by the Royal Family apart from 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 scenes in films such as James Bond and Leonard Di Caprio’s, The Beach.

Phuket
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.
