Thailand Holidays: An Overview

Thailand is a vibrant blend of cultures and breathtaking natural scenery and, understandably, the most popular luxury holiday destination in South East Asia.

Katie is here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • The beaches - they range from long, white sandy stretches of paradise to bays surrounded by towering limestone formations.
  • Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai provide the ultimate culture fix - you'll see an array of gilded temples, and have the chance to sample some seriously tasty cuisine along the way, too.
  • Elephant trekking is a must; the mahouts will teach you how to instruct your elephant in Thai before trekking through the jungle.

Original Highlight

The overhanging spa at Four Seasons Tented Camp in Chiang Rai took 15 minutes of trekking to reach, but the sublime setting amidst the bamboo forest is well worth it.

A note on price

Thailand is great value for money, and can be done on a real range of budgets. Direct flights to Bangkok cost around £650 per person, and domestic flights are reasonably inexpensive. Super-luxury Thailand holidays that include stays at beautiful tented camps in the jungle and private beach villas on the coast will cost around £10,000 per person. However, choosing quaint boutique hotels means you'll pay more like £1,800 per person. Learn more about our pricing
