Explore Thailand

Mark and David's verdict:

You won't be disappointed if all you want to do is fly and flop on beautiful beaches. But Thailand is a place to discover as well as loaf, inspecting temples, visiting traditional hill tribes, exploring such enthralling cities as Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai, joining a cookery class and, of course, irresistible shopping.

Recommended tour operator: Experience Travel Group

Experience Travel Group says

Thailand’s idyllic beaches, sultry jungles and historic temples set the scene, but it’s the welcoming Thai people, the mouth-watering cuisine and extraordinary cultural traditions that bring this amazing country to life.

  • Adventures and beaches
  • Tailor made private tours
  • Unique experiences

Our luxurious tailor-made holidays will transport you to the very essence of Thailand whether you choose a busy adventure or a relaxing break.

We organise well thought through private tours with experienced guides and comfortable, safe transportation, and we only recommend what we’ve tried ourselves.

We build more flexibility and independence into our luxury holidays than mainstream travel companies and specialise in creating unique and tailor-made experiences, which allow you to really get under the skin of Thailand.

So if you’d like a tasty street food tour in Bangkok, a ride on a traditional Siamese junk boat or to hang out with the elephants at The Elephant Nature Park, we’ve got you covered in style.

Some more of the many highlights of Thailand include the chance to kayak at sunset, explore Khao Sok National Park and take a cruise on the Chao Phraya River.

Thailand has a dizzying array of hotels and resorts. Our unrivalled local knowledge cuts through all the noise to find the perfect choice for you. Check out Koyao Island Resort for example, a beautiful island getaway far from the touristy crowds, with the perfect balance of relaxation and adventure on offer.

Thailand, with its diverse activities and experiences, is also ideal for a family holiday and it is so easy to explore with something to entertain all ages.
