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.
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.
Giant national parks and tropical forests nuzzle the shoreline here, so the opportunities for hiking, elephant trekking, 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.
