Most holidays in Thailand begin in the frenetic capital, Bangkok. This huge, modernised metropolis is a backpacker’s hangout and a holidaymaker’s haven, striking an alluring balance of history and culture with modernised luxuries and a vibrant nightlife. From the captivating beauty of the Grand Palace and the mystifying nature of the Wat Pho and Wat Arun temples to the raw rowdiness of Khao San Road and luxurious shopping and hotels – this is a city of juxtapositions. If Bangkok becomes too much, visitors often choose to head to the chilled north, descending in droves on the wonderful city of Chiang Mai. Home to countless temples, happy elephants and hosting the breath-taking Loy Krathong Festival, this is a unique city like no other in Thailand.
The northern city of Chiang Rai is another popular stop for tourists on Thailand holidays, dropping in on the stunning White Temple before embarking on some treks around the expansive countryside, while of all the ruins in the country – that of the first capital, Sukhothai, is by far the most intriguing and expansive.
Holidays to Thailand give you the choice of two stunning coastlines, both dotted with paradisiacal islands and lined by perfect beaches. The country is a dream for island hoppers, with the backpacker-friendly havens of Koh Tao, Koh Phangan and Koh Samui adorn the east coast, while to the west you’ll discover Phi Phi Island and many beautiful islets located off of Krabi. The province of Krabi itself is home to some stunning beaches and a lively rock climbing scene, and just to the west the beaches of Phuket are equally alluring.
You don’t have to flock to the islands and beautiful beaches to experience Thailand’s natural majesty, with many of the country’s highlights found in the form of inland national parks and mountainous jungle. The northern retreat of Pai is situated in a picturesque valley near Chiang Mai and has become a popular retreat for hippies, drawing to a contagious bohemian atmosphere. The surrounding countryside is the area’s main draw, boasting waterfalls, mountainous vistas and gushing rivers.
For an unprecedented Thai national park experience, look no further than the stunning Khao Sok National Park, arguably the country’s most beautiful wildlife reserve. Home to stunning flora and snaking rivers, an adventure around Khao Sok during holidays in Thailand will give you the chance of spotting tigers, elephants and gibbons in their natural habitat.
