A truly memorable country to visit, Thailand is a place of wonderful culture and landscapes. It is no wonder that Thailand is the most popular destination in Southeast Asia.


Famous for it’s excellent fragrant cuisine, Thailand has much to offer for the visitor: history, culture, the arts, fabulous beaches, excellent nightlife and extremely friendly and hospitable inhabitants. Travelling around is easy due to a expansive network of buses, trains and airplanes.


The majority of visitors enter the country via Bangkok, a fascinating place in itself. Using it as a base you can explore great cities like the former capital Ayutthaya and Kanchanaburi, the crossing point of the infamous River Kwai bridge. 


There are many popular islands including Koh Samui and Phuket Island, both have excellent beaches. Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand is best known for Thai culture and the picturesque scenery.
