A country of contrasts

Thailand was first in line when they were dishing out blissful beach scenes. But only talking about its jaw-dropping shorelines won’t do justice to everything else it has to offer. Gawping at gold-clad monasteries, taking a dip at the foot of a waterfall and scoffing street food will all make your ‘I’ll remember this forever’ list.


Phuket – just off Thailand’s southwest coast – serves up beaches of every kind and has world-class diving conditions. Whether you like your stretches of sand palm-fringed and people-free, or packed with partygoers, you can take your pick here.

Koh Samui

If there was a contest to crown Thailand’s top holiday spot, Koh Samui would definitely be a front-runner. Straight-off-a-postcard beaches and fantastic scenery have been tempting holidaymakers to its palm-edged shores for decades.

Khao Lak

Giant national parks and tropical forests nuzzle the shoreline here, so the opportunities for hiking, canoeing and wildlife-spotting come by the bucket-load. The diving conditions are first-rate, too.


Thailand’s fast-paced capital city is well worth a visit during your stay in the country – it’s an insane mix of holy shrines and crazy nightlife, with shopping and street food crammed in between.

Just off Thailand’s southwest coast, Phuket is heaving with 40 kilometres of beaches that bear the country’s trademark white sands and hammock-strung palms. But that’s about the only thing these sandy stretches have in common – in terms of their vibe, they couldn’t be more different.

Khao Lak

Thailand’s southwest coastline isn’t short of knock-out beach scenes. But deserted sands and a ban on over-development set Khao Lak apart. Three world-class national parks and 20 kilometres of powdery white beaches are the main draw here, but the lack of crowds is a close second. If it’s Thailand’s serene side you’re after, this is where to find it.
