Thailand

The Land of Smiles

 

Thanks to the welcoming temperament of the Thai people, Thailand is known as the land of smiles. But there's so much more to be explored in this colourful and lively nation. Whether it be wandering the vibrant streets of Bangkok, exploring the vast jungles of the North or relaxing on the iconic beaches of the South; Thailand has it all and offers an adventure at every moment. 

The heart of Thai culture and it's people is the Buddhist faith, promoting a calm and compassionate culture providing the country with thousands of temples, and shrines known as 'wats' decorated in resplendent gold;  a top-up on luck for all those who visit.

Bangkok

With its myriad sights and sounds, Bangkok promises to captivate and enliven. This non-stop city reflects Thailand’s uncanny ability to blend the old with the new. Resplendent temples and the spectacular 18th century Grand Palace are contrasted by canalside markets and sophisticated, high-end shopping malls.

Chiang Mai, the north’s principal tourist gateway, is famous for its bustling night markets where travellers can mingle with members of the northern hill tribes. Chiang Rai is also home to several hill tribes who follow fascinating ways of life, each with their own customs, culture, clothing and language.
