Explore the Grandeur of Bangkok

Explore the Grandeur of Bangkok

Dive into the dynamic energy of Bangkok, where modern skyscrapers coexist with ornate temples. Visit the Grand Palace, witness the reclining Buddha at Wat Pho, and navigate the vibrant chaos of markets like Chatuchak to find hidden trinkets and treasures. A city where you can explore mammoth shopping malls like ICON Siam, dine at Michelin-star restaurants, explore floating markets, see reptilian friends in Lumphini Park, and explore monuments where ancient kings once ruled – Bangkok should be a stop on every Thailand adventure. 

Island Hopping Bliss

Island Hopping Bliss

Escape to the paradisiacal islands that dot the Andaman and Gulf coasts. Whether it's the turquoise waters of Phi Phi Islands, the lively vibes of Phuket, or the tranquillity of Koh Samui, Thailand's islands offer a diverse range of experiences. Glide past towering rock formations on a Longtail Boat in Ao Phang Nga National Park, snorkel beautiful bays, meet rescued Elephants at a local sanctuary, and as night falls watch the coastlines come alive with daring fire dancers. The Thai Islands are the perfect spot for true beachside bliss.

Discover Chiang Mai's Charm

Discover Chiang Mai's Charm

In the mountainous north, Chiang Mai captivates with its historic temples, lush landscapes, and vibrant night bazaars. Explore the ancient city walls, embark on a trek in the surrounding hills, or witness the mesmerizing Yi Peng Lantern Festival. If more rural tranquillity is on the agenda, take a trip further north to Chiang Rai and see the opulent White Temple, hill tribe villages, and Golden Triangle where Thailand meets its neighbours Laos and Myanmar.

Feel-good Festivities

Feel-good Festivities

If there’s one thing Thailand does better than anyone, it's parties. Looking for a special reason to visit Thailand? Book a trip during one of their festivals. Whether you flock to Koh Phangan for the world's biggest Full Moon Party or celebrate the Thai New Year in style at Songkran by banishing the bad luck with a countrywide water flight- there’s a feel-good festivity for everyone. But perhaps the most beautiful festival, The Yi Peng Festival in Chaing Mai is a truly bucket list event. Like an iconic scene straight from a fairytale, see thousands of candle-lit lotus baskets and flowers encase the rivers as lanterns are released to ignite the night sky in a sea of twinkling lights.

food and drink

Food & Drink

Pad Thai, spicy shrimp soups, mango sticky rice, papaya salads, red, yellow, and green curries; using sizzling spices and tropical flavours like lemongrass and coconut, this world-famous food is best tasted in its homeland. Book into a cookery class and learn the secrets needed to whip up an impressive Thai dinner when you get home or tuck into the flavours at traditional street stalls and modern restaurants. Feeling brave? You'll even find fried insects and other delights sizzling in Bangkok's markets.
