Places to go in Thailand
With thousands of beaches and islands to explore it can be hard to decide which to choose for that perfect Thai beach holiday. No matter where you settle you’ll find crystal-clear waters, spectacular marine life and soft, white sands. Head off the beaten track to find a more peaceful spot, like Ko Lipe, or charter a long-tail boat to discover the numerous tiny islands dotted along the coast of Phuket.
If you fancy channelling your inner Bear Grylls, head inland to one of Thailand’s 126 National Parks, home to some of the world’s most endangered species and a diverse range of wildlife. Experience lush forestation, dramatic waterfalls and, if you’re lucky, a chance encounter with an Asian elephant in Khao Sok.
If the bright city lights are calling your name, Bangkok will not disappoint. Whatever you’re looking for here, chances are you’ll find it. Skyscrapers dominate the city, overlooking dozens of shopping malls and street markets, while down below you’ll uncover ancient buildings and bustling waterways. If the city buzz is too much, the smaller towns of Kanchanaburi and Ayutthaya are sure to satisfy. Got a few ideas about where you’d like to go or need some help?
