Fly from UK to Bangkok
Explore the hustle and bustle of Thailand’s vibrant capital, Bangkok, a bright and modern city that retains plenty of traditional features and charm. Ride a tuk-tuk through the throngs and hunt for bargains at the markets – the piping-hot street food, freshly prepared in front of you, is like nowhere else in the world. Nestled in amongst this urban city are some of the most spectacular temples imaginable – from the dazzling golden spires of The Grand Palace to the giant reclining Buddha at Wat Pho, Bangkok’s gems will leave you breathless. Watch the market traders go about their business at the Floating Market where each boat is piled high with fresh produce, waiting to be bartered for.
It's time to step away from the bright lights of Bangkok as you board the plane for Chiang Mai, the sparkling jewel of Northern Thailand. This spiritual city, nestled against a mountainous backdrop, offers temples at every turn, traditional wooden houses, stunning street food and a bustling night bazaar. Experience the warm welcome of the famously hospitable Thai people and explore the diversity of the city on a private tour of the temples. While you’re here, don’t miss the rural charms of the surrounding region where you’ll find verdant rainforest, spectacular waterfalls and intriguing hill tribes.
Fly south to the blissful island of Phuket and relax on its beautiful shores. With turquoise waters and long silky smooth beaches, it’s time to sit back with an ice-cold cocktail, relax beside the water and soak up the sun. If you're looking for adventure, Phuket's warm waters lend themselves perfectly to scuba diving or snorkelling, while the lush national parks of the interior offer some glorious hiking trails. While chilling out here, you’ll spend a day on the powder-soft sands of Phi Phi Island. You could even take a trip to the picturesque setting for Hollywood blockbuster The Beach – Maya Bay.
