Tempting Beaches
Tempting BeachesThailand offers an excellent choice of exotic beaches, stunning islands and hidden retreats. Located off the west coast is the stunning Andaman region with its towering limestone cliffs and emerald waters. A myriad of island hideaways await, popular Phuket, relaxing Krabi or the alternative tranquillity of Koh Lanta and Koh Phi Phi and neighbouring Koh Phangan. Further south you'll discover the coral reefs and palm fringed shores of Koh Samui, whereas Hua Hin, Cha-Am and Pattaya are ideal beach extensions to your Bangkok city stay due to their short travel time and bustling ambiance.

Cultural Highlights
Cultural HighlightsTo learn about and experience Thailand's native and spiritual culture, travel north to Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. Here you will find an abundance of ancient Buddhist temples to explore, colourful hilltribes and rural villages, surrounded by picture postcard scenery scattered with lush rice terraces. We offer a wide range of soft adventure tours in the north; exploring the Golden Triangle region in depth and learning about the local cultures. Here you have the opportunity to ride elephants, learn to cook local Thai dishes, cycle through small villages, wander around fascinating markets and meet the friendly locals.

Thai Cuisine
Thai CuisineFood is considered one of life's great pleasures in Thailand, and eating well is a way of life. Local cuisine encompasses delicious fragrant and spicy dishes, fine seafood, piquant curries and tasty noodles. Thai dishes can be a carnival of flavours on one plate, with exotic notes of lemongrass and chilli, coriander, ginger, tamarind, coconut and fresh lime. Whilst in Thailand why not take the prime opportunity to try your hand at Thai cooking, many of our featured hotels offer classes with their head chefs; including Anantara Golden Triangle, Bel-aire Princess, Bangkok Marriott and Pimalai Resort & Spa.

Explorer's Paradise
Explorer's ParadisePerfect for the more active visitor, Thailand's natural geography offers itself to exploration. One of northern Thailand's biggest draws is wilderness walking, many treks include elephant riding; river rafting, cycling and overnight hilltribe stays. With three stretching coastlines, Thailand has become a major destination for watersports; a number of our featured resorts offer the pleasures of snorkelling or scuba diving in pristine dive sites. For the spectator, the martial art of Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) is worth attending and can be seen nightly in Hua Hin and Bangkok.

Shopper's Delight
Shopper's DelightMany bargains await you in Thailand, so ensure you have luggage space to bring it all back! Always have fun and haggle to get the best price (except in department stores, where fixed prices apply); hone your negotiating skills at the huge weekend market at Chatuchak Park, easily reached by Skytrain from Bangkok and pick up souvenirs at Bangkok's Lumpini night market. Thai silk is widely considered the best, and is used by tailors in the country and around the world. In Chiang Mai many shops, and the popular night market, sell handicrafts.

Spas & Boutiques
Spas & BoutiquesMany believe it is a combination of Buddhist mental philosophy and a ritual physical loosening that keeps Thais so relaxed and calm. We have carefully selected a range of hotels with wellbeing in mind, all offering a range of spa treatments, aromatic facials, Tai Chi, Pilates and meditation. A massage to restore balance, a herbal sauna to cleanse or an energy body treatment may sound very new age but these rites have been part of Thai life for centuries.
