Why Visit Thailand?
Justifiably popular, Thailand is renowned for its warm hospitality, inherent Buddhist culture, sublime food, and spectacularly diverse natural beauty. Thailand vacations start in the capital, Bangkok, one of the world’s most iconic and vibrant cities. Head south for some of Southeast Asia’s most dazzlingly beautiful beaches and islands. Highlights include ‘Pearl of the Andaman Sea,’ Phuket, Phang Nga Bay‘s wondrous limestone karsts, and Similan Islands, habitat to some of the planet’s most incredible coral reefs.
The north is equally alluring, with historic Chiang Mai and the legendary ‘Golden Triangle,’ where the Mekong River meanders through mountainous jungles. As capitals of former Siam kingdoms, Sukhothai and Ayutthaya reveal a treasure trove of ancient ruins, and Kanchanaburi‘s River Kwai and Erawan National Park weave enticing historical and natural trails. This ‘Land of Smiles’ provides no end to unforgettable vacation packages.
