Thailand

South East Asia's glittering gem

Thailand tailor-made holidays

Introduction

Glittering temples and the remains of ancient kingdoms, exotic islands fringed by white-sand coves, gently swaying palms and towering limestone cliffs have all made a holiday in Thailand something of a traveller's dream.

A well-trodden trail highlights the main attractions: frenetic, intoxicating Bangkok; hill tribes and treks in the mountainous north; the old Siamese capitals of Ayutthaya and Sukhothai; put togther a tailor-made trip to Thailand to experience the best of what the country has to offer.

All this, and islands like Phuket, Koh Phi Phi and Koh Samui that continue to fulfil a fantasy of places to unwind and savour the pleasures of beach life, make Thailand holidays perennially popular.

Where to go in Thailand

Bangkok

Bangkok is a modern metropolis merging old and new, sacred and profane. Bustling street markets peddle bargains alongside high-end shopping malls, trendy nightclubs and restaurants that tempt devotees, while serene Buddhist temples and majestic palaces stud the riverbanks and boulevards.

Eastern Thailand

The eastern province of Thailand is far less visited than the rest of the country, but a trip here allows the opportunity to get off the beaten track and see some of the area's small towns and unspoilt landscapes, before continuing on to islands in the Gulf of Thailand or into Laos or Cambodia.

Central Thailand

Bird watching and historical sites are among the attractions of the central and western regions of Thailand, parts of which have been given over to mountainous and forested national parks where rare animal species can be seen.

Northern Thailand and Chiang Mai

Heading north from Thailand's dusty central plains, the heat gives way to cool, clean air and a terrain of forested limestone hills and rivers. The pace and people seem gentler in this colourful corner of Thailand, bordering Burma and Laos.

When to go to Thailand

Inland Thailand has a tropical, humid climate for most of the year. The area north of Bangkok has three seasons whilst the southern peninsular region has only two.

May to November is dominated by the southwest monsoon, when rainfall is heaviest. The south is more definitively split between wet and dry seasons. On the west coast the southwest monsoon brings rain and heavy storms from April to October, while on the east coast the heaviest rains fall from September …
