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. Whether it’s meditation retreats or bustling beeping cities, and peaceful temples or jungle-topped islands, Thailand has it all.
As ever, if you can’t see it here then we can still plan it for you.
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 a vacation spent observing 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.
If Las Vegas had an older sibling, we think it would be Bangkok. Much larger and much older, Bangkok is a city that never rests; a city where rooftop bars are a nightly occasion and hotels are synonymous with luxury – only the royal palaces are real and every street is brimming with history. 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.
With hundreds of Thai islands to choose from, it can be hard to narrow down the few that really tickle your fancy. Koh Samui is home to the best luxury resorts in Thailand, Koh Lipe is best for romantics, and Koh Tao is frequented for its dazzling diving spots. One thing that’s for sure: whichever you decide, turquoise waters and fine-sand beaches are awaiting your arrival.
Whether you choose to spend several days simply flopping on Phuket’s legendary beaches with a good book or strolling its lush jungle for a spot of exotic bird watching with a local twitcher, you won’t want to leave. For a scuba diving adventure with a difference, we’ll arrange a private night dive, where you’ll have a chance to discover the magnificent manta rays that frequent Racha Noi Island. Of course, no trip to Thailand is complete without some quality spa time and the Royal Six-Hand Massage at the five-star Trisara redefines wellness and tranquillity.
Take a ride into the history of Ayutthaya, the ancient Siamese capital, with a guided tour on old-style bicycles. Feel the breeze in your hair as you roll past grand stone palaces such as Wat Chaiwatthanaram and admire the peeping tree Buddha at Wat Mahathat. Expand your culinary prowess in a Thai family kitchen, where you’ll create smoky Isaan-style fermented sausage and other local delicacies.
Held every November on the full moon of the 12th lunar month, Loy Krathong festival is an occasion so magical it’s worth building your trip around. We’ll grant you special access to the local community as it prepares for the celebrations that culminate with the release of thousands of handmade lanterns into the night sky. Don’t forget to make a wish.
Historians, cinephiles, and classic literature fans will be enchanted by our exclusive excursion to explore the River Kwai area, which was immortalised with the release of The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957). You’ll travel through Hellfire Pass by train as your guide separates fact from fiction and provides you with a deep insight into the true events that took place during the construction of the Burma Railway.
A feast of colors, 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.
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.
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 flavorsome programmes.
