Thailand

Thailand is a fascinating melange of old and new - discover Bangkok one minute pulsating: the next…an oasis of calm and tranquillity. Don’t miss the buzzing Chatuchak weekend market or elegance of the Grand Palace. The land is blessed with stunning beauty: Sukhothai with its glorious classical architecture. Ayuthaya, an ancient capital, is still breath-taking with vast silent ruined monasteries. Chiang Mai, "The Rose of the North"; graced with over 300 Buddhist Temples, is surrounded by orchards and forests. For nature lovers, the National Parks are vibrant with wildlife, whilst daydreams of lush tropical islands, sun-drenched shores, shimmering sands and crystal clear waters really do come true in Thailand! One last thing… the renowned cuisine is sublime.

November to March is a good time to visit; the north is best of mid-November to December or in February. The south cooler during April to June - Bangkok can be insufferable in April.
