Formally known as Siam, Thailand has something for everyone. Buzzing Bangkok, the ‘City of Angles’, is one of the liveliest cities in Asia. It is drenched in temples, vibrant floating markets, lively river life and brimming with world renowned cuisine at every corner.
The north of Thailand boasts archeological marvels such as the the ancient Royal Capital of Sukhothai, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Soak in the venerable atmosphere by cycling through the ruins. For a rich cultural experience head further north into the mountains, where the welcoming hill tribe villages of Chiang Mai, surrounded by lush green rice terraces, continue their traditional lifestyle.
Thailand and cuisine go hand in hand and the country’s food choice from street side stalls to top-notch restaurants is a reason in itself to visit the country. Taste your way through regional flavors and maybe pick up a few cooking tips in the process.
No Thailand holiday would be complete without a stay at one of the country’s stunning tropical islands where pure white sand beaches and luscious palm trees fringe the crystal clear waters.
