Thailand

Thailand evokes images of pristine island beaches, fresh and spicy cuisine, cocktails at sunset and suntanned bodies. However, this country has so much more to offer. 

Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and the north offer a cooler climate, with ancient ruins and intricate golden pagodas. Browse the night markets, visit hill tribe villages or give alms to the procession of Buddhist Monks. Ride elephants through tea plantations or bamboo rafts down the Mae Kok River.

At first bewildering and frantic, Bangkok offers everything from the Grand Palace to rooftop bars,  and the infamous red light district. At Kanchanaburi, north of Bangkok, you’ll learn the history of Hellfire Pass and the Burma Railway, built by Allied prisoners of war and Asian labourers under brutal Japanese occupation.

You could do worse than cocktails, swimming and massages on Thailand’s beaches. And lastly there’s the Thai people themselves, warm hearted and pleasant by nature, but fiercely proud of their culture, history, and their revered king.

Thailand is undeniably one of the world’s best holiday destinations, where you can start your trip in hectic Bangkok, explore the culturally fascinating north, and end your trip in the tropical wonderland of Thailand’s south.

"The recent holiday with Thai Hill tribes and Laos Mekong cruise was very good. City accommodation was excellent, and accommodation in mountain lodges was basic. It all went well and various guides and drivers were up to the usual high standard. The Mekong river cruise was very special as there were only 10 other people on the boat, and they were all very nice people. The Captain did say he had never seen a group of strangers get on so well together. We did drink the Bar dry a couple of times !! We found Laos to be a fascinating country with delightful people. " — Mr and Mrs Clark, Bribie Island, September 2018
