About Thailand

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Thailand is the chance to explore a stunning part of the world. More people visit Thailand than any other country in Southeast Asia. With beautiful beaches and stunning cuisine, historic towns and colourful cities, it’s not hard to see why. Throw in national parks full of wildlife, rainforests and mountains to take the breath away, as well as a welcome so warm you can’t fail to be beguiled, and Thailand is a country you could spend a whole life exploring without growing tired. Bangkok is the country’s spectacular gateway, and what an introduction. A modern giant with gleaming shopping centres and dazzling nightlife, the City of Angels is also a place of timeless wonder, with ancient markets and temples, centuries-old palaces and monks in saffron robes. Thrusting, modern capital it may be, but everywhere the city is interwoven with a devout Buddhist tranquillity and warmth. In the north, Chaingrai province – aka the Golden Triangle – offers a wealth of river tours and hilltribe treks, ruined cities and cookery holidays, with Chiang Mai its stunning capital. In the south, idyllic islands are sprinkled into the Andaman Sea, with Koh Samui and Phuket merely the best known. Sliding down the coastal tail are the evergreen limestone islands of Ko Tao and Kho Phi Phi Don, filled with tall palms angling over pearlescent sand. With idyllic beaches in the south and mountainous rainforest in the north, Thailand is blessed with a rich variety of landscapes – and a range of attractions and activities to match. Whether you’re here for bone-white beaches or cookery schools, snorkelling and diving or hillwalking and kayaking, Thailand has it all.

Highlights of Thailand

Luxury resorts in the islands of the Andaman Sea; rail trip to the original Bridge Over the River Kwai; Catuchak weekend market in Bangkok; the giant reclining Buddha in Wat Pho; the Skytrain to Bangkok’s glitzy shopping centre; floating markets all over the country, with the best at Damnoen Saduak, some 65 miles southwest of Bangkok; fabulous massages; delicately spiced local food; the bus journey from Kanchanburi to Sangkhlaburi, a spectacular road through rugged karst mountains to the misty, romantic lakeside border outpost and base for many outdoor adventures; the Mae Sa-Samoeng loop, dipping and twisting along the peaks outside Chiang Mai; diving and snorkelling with whale sharks off coral-fringed islands such as Ko Tao; Chiang Mai, the beautiful northern hilltown, home to many Thai cookery courses, thanks largely to a wonderful local market; elephant trekking, Chiang Mai; the tangle of limestone mountains and rainforest in Khao Sok National Park, home to snakes, monkeys and tigers, and the incredible Rafflesia kerrii flower; Mae Hong Son province, remote crossroads of many cultures, jungle-treks to hilltribes; Mu Ko Chang Marine National Park, with its lush jungle, postcard-perfect bays, fiery sunsets, and a craggy mountainous interior sheltering a veritable Jurassic Park of flora and fauna; Sukhothai Historical Park, Thailand’s former capital, now an atmospheric site of ruins; Ayuthaya’s historical and architectural gems; the mountains and waterfalls of Khao Yai National Park; the beaches of Hua Hin; the little visited forested mountains and hilltribes of Nan province; seafood curry on Songkhla pier.

Travel around Thailand

Thailand’s rail network is very well run, with four main lines running north, south, northeast and east from Bangkok. The train is most convenient as an alternative to buses for the long, scenic journey north to Chiang Mai or south to Surat Thani.
