About Thailand …
Thailand is a famously friendly country! Thanks to the renowned hospitality of the Thai people it’s known as ‘The Land of Smiles’.
The capital city Bangkok is full of life. Roads are packed with cars and noisy tuk tuks, pavements are crammed with ramshackle food stalls and shrines are laden with fragrant flowers. North of Bangkok, Kanchanaburi offers a green getaway with mountains, rivers and WWII sites including the famous Bridge over the River Kwai. The crumbling wats and palaces at Ayutthaya, once the royal capital, create an atmospheric insight into this once-magnificent city.
The beach resorts of Phuket and Koh Samui offer world class hotels, luxury spas, upscale boutiques and high-end restaurants. Krabi’s coastline is dotted with limestone cliffs and pinnacles which rise steeply out of the turquoise sea, offering endless opportunities for snorkelling and rock-climbing.
In the north, Chiang Mai is encircled by hills and displays its distinctive Lanna inheritance through architecture, cuisine and handicrafts. Also known as Thailand’s cultural hub, it is home to wood carvers, silk weavers and artists. Its quieter neighbour, Chiang Rai, is an excellent base for visiting ethnic minorities in remote villages. Not far away is the notorious Golden Triangle, the former centre of opium growing in this border area.
The streetfood in Chiang Mai is amazing! Go to the North Gate foodmarket to eat fantastic hawker dishes and northern delicacies with the locals.
