Anyone looking for fun, adventure and luxury on their next vacation should consider a holiday to Thailand. There is a good reason why Thailand has become so popular with discerning travellers because it has so much to offer and an area of the world with outstanding natural beauty.
Here are a few of the must-visit places on a luxury holiday to Thailand.
You cannot have a holiday in Thailand without visiting the incredible capital city of Bangkok. This iconic city is a feast for the senses and quite unlike anywhere else in the world with many tourist attractions and beautiful shrines to discover. The Grand Palace is a must-visit and a breathtaking sight to behold with beautiful architecture.
Chiang Mai is one of the largest cities in Thailand but one which can be much calmer and more peaceful than places like Bangkok which can make it a refreshing change of pace. Situated in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains, this sleepy city is surrounded by lush countryside, dense forests, rice paddies and elephant sanctuaries but remains a good place for soaking up culture.
Railay Beach, Krabi
There are too many stunning beaches to list in Thailand. If your looking for a more exclusive isolated island feel then Railay beach is the perfect place. Only accessible by boat, It boasts clear blue water, small islands on the horizon and limestone cliffs surrounding the small beaches. Railey is considered a rock climbers haven and is much more quieter and tranquil than most of the other popular Thailand beaches
Phang Nga Bay
Nature lovers adore Phang Nga Bay which is a serene and picturesque area between the mainland and Phuket Island. Characterized by striking limestone karsts that jut out of the green waters, Phang Nga Bay has caves, lagoons, dramatic rock formations, archaeological sites and more – it is no surprise that it is used so often in films, including The Man With the Golden Gun.
Thailand’s mystical past is all part of its appeal and Ayutthaya is a must-visit for anyone looking to uncover Thailand’s many historical gems. This ancient city was once the capital of the Kingdom of Siam and the historical park will allow you to see the breathtaking ancient ruins, including Buddhist temples, monasteries and temples.
These are just a few of the highlights to discover on a luxury trip to Thailand but there are many more. It is one of the best destinations in the world because it has a fascinating history which can be seen in every corner, it is a beautiful part of the world and it is somewhere that you can both completely unwind and find fun and adventure.
