Colourful, that's just one of the words that you'll be using to describe your holiday to Thailand, from the golden temples and emerald paddy fields to sapphire seas and saffron robes of the Buddhist monks. In fact the pure white sand and clear blue waters are perhaps a little too tempting for beach lovers to spend their entire Thai holiday there. And that's the beauty of Thailand - its contrast of tranquil beaches, buzzing cities, cultural phenomenon and fascinating history.
Bangkok is a hive of activity, a city that truly never sleeps, while Chiang Mai is the gateway to Northern Thailand, a beautiful mountain setting with nearly 300 temples. The national parks of the south encompass coastal rainforests, mangrove swamps, golden beaches and rainbow-coloured coral reefs, pamper yourself in the luxurious southern beach resorts of Phuket, Krabi or Koh Samui. We strongly recommend that you spend time off the beaten track though and our collection of Thai Hideaways give you the opportunity to discover some of the less well-known coastal resorts of Thailand.
