Why should you travel to Thailand with us?

From Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai, we’ve unlocked this enthralling country’s secrets.

From top to toe, Thailand is a country of enormous and exciting contrast. With our local guides – such as Nadea in Bangkok and Krit on Phi Phi Island – you’ll journey to the lesser-known gems only our local experts know about. In the North, head to Chiang Mai for meditation retreats and Chiang Rai to uncover ancient Lanna Kingdom secrets. In the bustling, beeping capital of Bangkok, weave through street markets, marvel at iconic temples and master staple dishes in one of our all-time favourite cooking classes. In the south, escape to jungle-topped islands, rest up at tropical hideaways and anchor down at secret bays. Thailand has it all.

Often referred to as the travel hub of Southeast Asia, Thailand is all encompassing. It offers the likes of lush jungles, divine beaches, a subway-polis overflowing with opportunity, and the kind of gastronomic scene that can convert even the pickiest of eaters. Thailand has a variety of different tours, so if bathing with elephants one day and perfecting age-old recipes with a local family the next sounds like your sort of thing, you’re on the right track.

Thanks to our in-house Travel Experts, we know the best place for an evening sundowner just as well as we know how to beat the crowds at Wat Arun.

Top Locations in Thailand

If we were asked to choose our top three places in Thailand, we’d go for these.
Floating markets in Bangkok

Bangkok

A feast of colours, culture and cuisine.

Bangkok is a lot more than just Thailand’s bustling capital. It’s the hidden noodle bar off the corner of Lumphini Park, the maze of floating markets waiting to be discovered, and the marble Wat Benchamabophit temple that we’ll lead you to at sunrise.  Home to over eight million people, from our hand-picked luxury hotels in Bangkok you can people watch to your heart’s content. 

Thailand's north

The North

A landlocked playground for outdoor opportunities. 

Two cities steeped in ancient history; Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai are the perfect places to soak up the country’s fascinating culture. Packed with cherished temples, street-food vendors and quaint yoga studios, there are plenty of undiscovered, intimate areas we’re eager to show you. In Chiang Rai we’ll whisk you away to meet some local elephants where you’ll get the surreal opportunity to bathe alongside them in the waterfall.

Visit Thailand's idyllic islands

The Islands

Koh Samui, Phuket, Koh Yao Noi and Koh Lanta.

Now it’s time to island-hop and flop on to Thailand’s most idyllic beaches for some R&R. We’ll hook you up with our best Thai guides to lead you on private night dives, swims with manta rays and kayak rides through concealed caves. In between lavish hotel stays at Amanpuri Phuket and Six Senses Yao Noi, learn the ropes of Thai-cooking with our flavoursome programmes.
