Hotel Rooms

Thailand packs in a busy three-week travel itinerary, starting out with Bangkok – its showcase capital with the Grand Palace, sparkling temples and exciting nightlife. Phuket is the second most popular destination famed for its gorgeous beaches and great hotels. From here you can de-camp to the quieter Krabi with its stunning karst backdrop. Daytrips to the incredible Phi Phi islands or Pha Nga Bay are highly recommended while visiting the Andaman Coast. Over on the Gulf coast is the self-styled boutique island of Samui, popular with expats, while backpackers head for the full moon parties of Koh Pha Ngan and divers gravitate to Koh Tao.

Closer to Bangkok is the Thai seaside town of Hua Hin, while punters should report to Pattaya for naughty nightlife. Also along this stretch is the diminutive Koh Samet and rugged ‘eco’ island of Koh Chang. Within easy reach of the capital is the World Heritage site of Ayuthaya, remarkable ruins of the former Siamese capital, along with the WWII history found at Kanchanaburi and River Kwai. Even Khao Yai National Park is a Thailand travel guide favourite. Head further north however for a truly authentic experience in the charming 700-year old Chiang Mai with its pretty moat and ancient temples, stop off at the Sukhothai ruins, or go trekking and touring in the mountainous North to the bohemian Pai or remote Golden Triangle. Along the way don’t forget to sample the great Thai food, go shopping, and catch the ever-friendly Thai smile.
