Nestled between Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Malaysia and lapped by the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea, lies the tropical paradise of Thailand. Once considered primarily as a backpackers' playground, Thailand has since evolved into a destination more than able to satisfy even the most discerning traveller. The accommodation choice ranges from idyllic beachfront bungalows, high-tech city skyscrapers and romantic pool villas. The countries attractions are endless, with miles of sandy beaches, national parks, pristine dive sites and fascinating cultural centres. Absorb yourself in the Thai culture and relax as you meet your friendly Thai hosts, only too happy to introduce you to their unique country.

There is a good network of frequent domestic flights within Thailand, with major carriers being Thai Airways and Bangkok Airways. Various direct flights operate between Bangkok and Thailand’s major resorts; including Phuket, Koh Samui, Chiang Mai, Trat and Krabi. Access to the resorts of Hua Hin and Pattaya is via expressway, which is a well maintained and direct road system. To escape to one of Thailand’s smaller islands many of our hotels provide their own boat transfers, see the Thai Hideaways section for further details.

Numerous local events and festivals happen throughout the country at any time of year but especially during the cooler months from November to February. Many of these are determined by the lunar cycle and so exact dates vary. The two big countrywide festivals that coincide with public holidays are: Chinese New Year (February), Songkran – Thai New Year (April) and the King’s birthday (December).
