Thailand Travel Guide

The classic Thai holiday will include some time in the thrilling, full-on metropolis of Bangkok, and the famed beaches of Phuket, Krabi or Koh Samui. The ethnically and culturally diverse north — in particular the Golden Triangle, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai — also top many a first-timer’s wish list, and offer many opportunities for light adventure in a beautiful tropical landscape.

Where to travel in Thailand

Beyond the headliner beaches and islands lie hundreds of alternatives, and they come in all flavours. Spread across the Andaman Sea and Gulf of Thailand, with more than 3000km of coastline, the choice is seemingly endless, from the peaceful barefoot luxury of Koh Kood to the chilled out vibe of Koh Lanta.

National parks such as Koh Sok offer the chance to camp in the wilds and get hands on with ethical elephant conservation, while in the far north you can immerse yourself in the traditional lifestyles of towns such as Fang and Chiang Kham.

Explore historic Thailand at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ayutthaya and the ancient kingdom of Sukhothai, or head to Kanchanaburi to witness the Death Railway and the bridge over the River Kwai, along with many opportunities for light adventure within easy reach of Bangkok.
