DISCOVER SENSATIONAL THAILAND

The Kingdom of Thailand draws more visitors than any other country in South East Asia with its irresistible combination of breathtaking natural beauty, inspiring temples, renowned hospitality, robust cuisine and ruins of fabulous ancient kingdoms.

Another good reason to choose Thailand for your holiday is because it enjoys a unique blend of tropical and sub-tropical climates and has a stunning geographic diversity ranging from 2,600 kilometres of beaches to teak forested mountain peaks soaring over 2,000 metres above valleys and plains. From the stupa-studded mountains of Mae Hong Son and the verdant limestone islands of the Andaman Sea, to the pulse-pounding dance clubs of Bangkok and the tranquil villages moored along the Mekong River, Thailand offers something for every type of traveller.
