Thailand
The Essential
From paradisiac island to mountain village, from tropical forest to rice fields, from Buddhist temple to Bangkok's skyscrapers and from diving to trekking, Thailand is a land of a thousand faces.
Lovers of beaches and sunshine will be enchanted by its 2,700km/1600mi of coastline! You will see the amazing rocky outcrops of Phangnga, admire the beautiful landscapes of Koh Lanta, take a dip at Phuket... without forgetting the seabed of Koh Phi Phi and the marine park of Mu Ko Similan.
Also immerse yourself in the effervescent turmoil of Bangkok, a river capital with a daring skyline. Continue northwards to Chiang Mai, rich in ancient, timeless pagodas. The town makes an ideal base camp for excursions into the Doi Inthanon, encounters with the mountain ethnic tribes, a trip to the Golden Triangle and the banks of the Mekong or a descent down the River Kok in a dugout canoe.
Your journey, dotted with unparalleled historic and religious sites, in particular at Sukhothai, the temple of Phimai and the city of Ayutthaya, will of course introduce you to the full gamut of Thai cuisine, without doubt one of the best in the world.
