It's no secret that Thailand boasts an envious number of tropical beaches and jungle-clad islands surrounded by welcoming waters but travellers on our trips will soon discover there's a whole lot more to this old favourite.

With its picture-perfect beaches, tropical climate, delicious cuisine and excellent value for money, it's hardly surprising that Thailand regularly features on the UK's most visited holiday destinations. The growing number of British expats in Thailand suggests that this Asian paradise is just too idyllic for one visit alone! Beyond the soaring skyscrapers of Thailand's capital, Bangkok, there's traditional scenes of rural life aplenty, from the farming communities of central Thailand to the hill tribes of Chiang Rai.

Tuan was a fantastic guide as he was super organised and helped as soon as any of the group had a problem. He gave us good commentary on our bus and at sites and judged the group well and made he trip fun as well as interesting.”

The best of Southeast Asia and the Land of Smiles

From the pulsating capital of Bangkok to the colourful markets of Chiang Mai in the north and the tropical islands of the south, Thailand has plenty to draw visitors but while you're in the area why not combine with neighbouring Burma and its beautiful temples or the captivating French-influenced cities of Laos and much more beside with our range of tours.

Recommended Places to Visit in Thailand

With a bustling capital, endless options of pristine beaches and temples galore, there's plenty to see in Thailand but some destinations have the edge and here's some of the top sites in Thailand we recommend seeking out.

Khao Sok National Park - Jungle Paradise

View on map
Khao Sok National Park | Thailand | Southeast Asia

With craggy limestone karsts towering above the water, Khao Sok National Park is home to some of the world’s oldest rainforest. Situated in the south of the country, visitors flock here to take advantage of the beautiful jungle trekking, to relax on scenic canoe rides and above all marvel at the breathtakingly beautiful scenery that this gem of a place has to offer.

Ayuthaya

Just over an hour from Bangkok, the ancient city of Ayuthaya is brimming with Siamese history. Ruins of magnificent temples which were destroyed in the 1700s are expertly preserved and can be discovered easily just by walking through the city. Headless Buddhas sit among the fallen rocks of former palaces and temples with modern shops and restaurants lining the streets.

Bangkok - Venice of the East

View on map
Wat Arun | Bangkok | Thailand

Needing little introduction, Bangkok, the Venice of the East, the city of Angels and the Asian city of sin (the nicknames are endless) is usually everyone’s first stop in Thailand. Gleaming temples, busy streets full of tuk-tuks and motorbikes, and hectic markets are just some of the many charms this sprawling city has. A visit to the Grand Palace and Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho) are a must.

Kanchanaburi - Bridge Over the River Kwai

Bridge over the River Kwai | Kanchanaburi | Thailand

Site of the famous Thailand-Burma Death railway and the Bridge on the River Kwai, Kanchanaburi is fast becoming one of Thailand’s most visited sites. Just a couple of hours outside of Bangkok this verdant town offers relatively easy trekking, a number of fascinating war-related museums, including the JEATH War Museum and the War Museum & Art Gallery, and beautiful waterfalls.

Chiang Rai - Where Three Countries Meet

View on map
Wat Rong Khun | Chiang Rai | Thailand

Sometimes overlooked as people head to the more popular Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai is definitely worth spending a few days in. Not only is it home to the glistening white ‘White Temple’ and many of the famous hill tribes of Thailand, it is also home to the famed ‘Golden Triangle’ where Thailand, Laos and Burma meet, and is the former heart of the world’s opium trade.

Hua Hin - Royal Retreat

View on map
Hua Hin | Thailand | Southeast Asia

Historically the home of the summer residencies of Thai kings, Hua Hin is a popular beach retreat only a few hours from Bangkok. It is a favourite with city dwellers at the weekends and is also the main home of the current King of Thailand Rama IX. Unlike some of its island counterparts Hua Hin does not pride itself on being a tranquil beach paradise with plenty of entertainment to enjoy.
