Destinations in Thailand

  • Bangkok

    Bangkok

    Sultry and engaging, Thailand's capital is a warm whirlwind of sights, sounds, smells and tastes. This Venice of the East is criss-crossed with canals, thronging with traffic and brimming with temples, palaces, markets and malls.
  • Chiang Mai

    Chiang Mai

    There’s no place that better embodies Thailand’s cultural heritage and modern aspirations than Chiang Mai. This venerable walled city was once the capital of the ancient Lanna kingdom, filled with splendid stupas, saffron-robed monks and dusty tracks.
  • Chiang Rai

    Chiang Rai

    Chiang Rai is as real as it gets in Thailand. This sleepy city might not have the boho-chic of sibling Chiang Mai, but it is an authentic slice of life and the launch pad for a magical adventure.
  • Hua Hin

    Hua Hin

    A couple of hours south of bustling Bangkok, the laid-back resort town of Hua Hin has been a Thai weekender’s favourite ever since the royal family started heading here back in the 1920s.
  • Khanom

    Khanom

    Beachy Khanom is untouched by the tourism boom and boasts tranquil surroundings where the locals are more than welcoming, the bars and restaurants lack crowds and there’s no need to reserve a lounger by the pool at first light.
  • Koh Phangan

    Koh Phangan

    Once known as the ultimate backpacker haunt thanks to its hedonistic party scene and guest appearance in The Beach, Gulf of Thailand isle Koh Phangan has grown up.
  • Koh Phi Phi

    Koh Phi Phi

    The twin islands of Koh Phi Phi ascend from the ocean like a jagged rock fortress, with beach-fronted jungle skulking enticingly behind the battlements. Simply put: it’s a mind-blowingly beautiful vision.
  • Koh Samui

    Koh Samui

    Cellophane-clear waters, pastel coral beds, beaches overhung with palm fronds… With raw ingredients like these, it’s no surprise that Koh Samui is considered one of the world’s best holiday destinations.
  • Krabi

    Krabi

    With world-renowned hotels, high-kicking nightlife, mountains of adventure, and countless beaches and islands a long-tail boat ride away, Krabi is deservedly one of Thailand’s rising stars.
  • Phang Nga

    Phang Nga

    Imagine the perfect beach and Phang Nga can probably beat it. This postcard-spectacular south-western Thai province hugs the Andaman Sea, with crystal-clear waters and jaw-dropping bays giving way to sheer limestone cliffs and dense tropical jungle.
  • Phuket

    Phuket

    Dropped like a giant pearl into the azure Andaman Sea, Phuket is a textbook tropical paradise of perfect beaches and forest-fringed cliffs.

Tales from our travels

Thailand

Thailand

Asian fusion…

Buddhist temples as ancient as the banyan trees; a tapestry of landscapes that takes in beaches, rice paddies, mountains, rainforests and cloud-poking urban jungles; a flavour-pushing cuisine that ticks off salty, spicy, sour, sweet; that famous Thai smile… How many reasons do you need?
