Join us on a holiday to Thailand

Renowned for its people's friendly attitude and warm hospitality, Thailand – the Land of Smiles – welcomes visitors with open arms.

From the hotels to the food stalls, it’s hard not to fall in love with the Thai spirit. The cheerful smiles from the locals add a touch of charm to everything that is Thailand. Add the peaceful, spiritual life of the country and you’ll see why this much-loved part of Southeast Asia will leave a forever lasting impression.

Visit this country and captivate your senses in tropical landscapes. Hear the frenetic sounds of Bangkok, indulge in the country’s eclectic culinary scene, or find solitude on a scenic stretch of white sand in Hua Hin. Immerse yourself in Thai culture and watch Thai boxing and folk dancing. Plunge into the depths of local markets across the country to find Thailand’s pulse, visit the lively night bazaars or take pleasure in exploring the country’s many outstanding temples and hidden shrines. Journey through the country's religious traditions with a visit to the Wat Pho temple complex or take in the sights and sounds of the Damnoen Saduak floating markets. Journey to the famous River Kwai, spot elephants in Erawan National Park or explore Bangkok's waterways on a longtail boat tour. For all of this and much, much more, take a look at our carefully crafted escorted tours to Thailand.

  • British passport holders arriving in Thailand can enter the country for a maximum of 30 days without a visa. If you are planning on staying longer, you should obtain a visa before you travel. Your passport should be valid for a minimum of six months from the date of entry

  • Broadly speaking, the best time to visit Thailand is in the dry and cool season, which ranges from November to early April. During this time, temperatures range between 29 and 34°C. However, the climate does vary throughout different regions of the country, meaning Thailand is a year round destination. On the popular east coast, the weather is good throughout most of the year, with rainfall at its lowest between January and February. 

  • You don’t need any vaccinations to enter Thailand. However, it is recommended that UK travellers get a tetanus, hepatitis A and yellow fever vaccine for travel to Thailand. Taking anti-malarial medication is also advisable when visiting some parts of the country. Book an appointment with a travel nurse before you go.

  • Thai food is one of the most popular cuisines in the world, and is renowned for its fresh, fiery flavours. Pad Thai, a stir-fried noodle dish that can be made with meat, vegetables of fish, is a popular Thai dish. Noodles, rice, coconuts and limes are staples of Thai food. Street food is popular throughout Thailand, especially in larger cities like Bangkok and Chiang Mai. 

  • The capital city of Thailand is Bangkok.

  • In Thailand, they use the Thai Baht, abbreviated to THB. For the latest exchange rates, please see www.xe.com.

  • Thailand is one of the more expensive countries in Southeast Asia. However, by Western standards Thailand is a relatively cheap country to visit. 

  • Thailand is known for its idyllic islands and white-sand beaches, along with its fascinating cultural sites, unspoiled jungle and lively cities. Bangkok and Chiang Mai are two of the country’s most famous cities, whilst the southern islands (Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao, Koh Phi Phi and Phuket) are popular tourist destinations, along with Koh Chang in the north. 

  • In Thailand they speak Thai, although English is widely spoken, especially in tourist areas. The Thai language is complex, and uses a totally different alphabet to the cyrllic, with many different phonetic sounds and inflections. Each word or phrase can have several meanings, and there are different ways of addressing men and women.
