Holidays to Thailand
Thailand is one of the most sought after destinations in Asia and it is not hard to see why. As well as lush tropical jungle and white sandy beaches, the country boasts ancient cities, a delectable cuisine, great shopping and some of the most hospitable hosts you could wish to meet.
A holiday to Thailand or tour to Thailand is a real treat – the country has some very fine hotels and numerous colourful annual festivals to attract the visitor, including the Songkran Water Festival, the Elephant Roundup in Surin and the Loi Krathong Candle Light Festival. Despite its increased popularity you can still get away from it all if you desire. River cruising or trekking in the hills offer opportunities to get off the beaten track and into a land that is still brimming with excitement making your holiday to Thailand or tour to Thailand that little bit special.
As Bangkok serves as a hub for Southeast Asia, Thailand is well placed to combine with other countries in the region and after a week’s tour of Laos or Cambodia why not unwind on some of the region’s most beautiful beaches.

"Thank you very much for organising a splendid holiday for us. The high spot was the river cruise on the Pandaw which was very enjoyable. The boat was very comfortable; the food was good, the drinks free..."Leslie & Norma Dickinson - Edinburgh
