Explore Thailand

Mark and David's verdict
Camping in Khao Sok National Park, a characterful village homestay, trekking the hill country around Chiang Dao, a luxurious heritage hotel on the Ping River. Experience Travel Group's holidays in Thailand are a cut above for people who really want to get under the skin of the place without sacrificing comfort.

Experience Travel Group says

If you’re dreaming of a holiday in Thailand that goes beyond ‘just’ a luxury hotel on a fabulous beach with a top notch spa, you’ve found the right people to organise it for you.

  • Unique experiences
  • Tailor-made private tours
  • Off the beaten path

Our luxury holidays will transport you to the very essence of Thailand, using our inside-track knowledge so you can explore so much more of what this beguiling country offers, with the right blend of adventure and down time to suit your style.

The secret lies in our name – it’s all about the experience. In Thailand, we work with local guides, village communities and wildlife organisations to create truly unique and exceptional experiences. So if you’d like a tasty street food tour in Bangkok, a ride on a traditional Siamese junk boat, the chance to kayak by starlight or explore Khao Sok National Park, we’ve got you covered.

Community-based tourism, in particular, is not only a sustainable way to contribute directly to local livelihoods but is also a fascinating and engaging way to experience any destination – read more about it on our blog.

We have unearthed the sort of places to stay that you will want to keep just to yourself – from luxury hotels such as Raya Heritage, minutes away from the famous names you see in every brochure, to eco-lodges and home stays like Ban Dok Bua. Kayak through mangroves before a beach swim from Koh Jum Beach Villas or chill out at Koyao Island Resort which is our idea of the perfect barefoot luxury island escape (and a favourite of one of the 101 Holidays team too!).

Perhaps our Thailand in Depth holiday ideas will inspire you to speak to one of our team so we can start to build the sort of holiday you are dreaming of. We’re pretty sure you will never have seen a holiday like Slow-Paced Thailand, for example – you’ll explore bamboo forests in Doi Luang National Park, join an organic farming village community for dinner and laze in a hammock on Koh Yao Noi.

We know our stuff and have compiled some really useful resources about Thailand’s regions and a few practicalities such as the best time to go where. And if you need a bit more convincing, check out this sceptic’s guide to Thailand.
