Thailand Holidays

Holidays to Thailand launch an all-out assault on the senses. Whether you're being dazzled by the bright lights of Bangkok or wading through turquoise shallows in sun-kissed Phuket, this is one of those places that'll capture your imagination and steal your heart.

First things first, travel to Thailand and one of the first things you'll probably want to do is smooth on the suncream and sink into those sparkling sands. There's just one word to sum up Thai beaches – wow. Think ivory shores. Swaying palms. Bath-warm waters. You'll feel as though you've been dropped into a giant postcard.

If beach-lounging is your priority, take a look at Phuket, the pearl of Thailand's southern shores. It's beautiful beyond words, with milky-white sands melting into crystal waters. When it comes to somewhere to stay, Cape Panwa is a great choice. You'll find it on the southeast tip of the island, gazing out on glittering sands. And if you need further proof of its popularity, just take a look at its guest list. Pierce Brosnan, Leonardo di Caprio and Catherine Zeta Jones have all stayed here. Impressive credentials we think you'll agree. Patong Merlin is another star choice. It's just across the road from one of Phuket's biggest and most popular beaches so it's ideal if sunbathing tops your holiday wish list.

Away from Phuket, holidays in Thailand shine the spotlight on Krabi, a beach-rich slice that's got what it takes to wow you. Then there's Khao Lak, whose great sweep of sand gives way to a sea teeming with tropical fish.

But, of course, there's more to Thailand holidays than beaches. Like Bangkok, the country's sizzling capital for instance. Tick off a list of famous temples. Take a dizzying tuk tuk ride. And haggle your heart out in some of the most exciting markets in South East Asia.
