Thailand is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. While once upon a time it was considered 'daring' to travel to this Southeast Asian country, times have certainly changed. From the majestic 5-star hotels in Bangkok to simple beach huts in Koh Samui or Koh Samet, accommodations choices are varied and usually offer excellent value for money.

    The kingdom radiates natural beauty, with stunning plains and hills of the Golden Triangle in the far north of the country, as well as Phuket, Samui and Krabi's wave-lapped white-sand beaches. Thailand has so much to offer that 1 visit is never enough – you'll want to come back and discover more time after time.

    • Bangkok

      Bangkok welcomes more visitors than any other city in the world and it doesn’t take long to realize why. Bangkok is a city of contrasts with action at every turn. Marvel at the gleaming temples, catch a tuk tuk through bustling Chinatown or take a longtail boat through floating markets. Food is another Bangkok highlight, from local dishes served at humble street stalls to haute cuisine at romantic rooftop restaurants.

      Luxury malls compete with a sea of boutiques and markets, where you can treat yourself without overspending. Extravagant luxury hotels and surprisingly cheap serviced apartments welcome you with the same famed Thai hospitality. And no visit to Bangkok would be complete without a glimpse of its famous nightlife. Be it nightclubs, cabarets or exotic red-light districts, Bangkok never ceases to amaze.
