Thailand offers plenty to do and see for everyone, both young and old, and for every style of holiday, from backpacking to 5 star resort style. Whether you go to Phuket, Chiang Mai, Bangkok or one the many other places of interest and no matter what time of year, you’ll never find yourself short of something to do.

Culture & history

If you are interested in architecture and history, you came to the right place. Thailand has a number of historical parks like Ayutthaya, Sukhothai and Kamphaeng Phet that are all UNESCO Heritage Sites where you can wander around all day making many beautiful photographs.

A number of Royal Palaces are open to the public and there are literally tens of thousands of Buddhist temples spread over the country.

Visit beautiful old towns with a very rich history like Chiang Mai that is full of temples like the Doi Suthep temple and Chiang Rai, with a much more relaxed atmosphere than Bangkok.

Beaches & relaxation

Thailand is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday with its many great beaches, day spas, traditional Thai massages and dining for all tastes. You will find a beach with good weather all year round, because of the different climate on the Eastern Gulf of Thailand and the Western Andaman Sea.

Other things to do

When your children need a break from the sightseeing, there are lots of places for them to enjoy themselves, like water parks and amusement parks, like Dream World in Bangkok.

Be sure to try a number of fun experiences where the atmosphere of past and present Thailand can be experiences, like a Muay Thai boxing fight in Bangkok or a trip to the Damnoen Saduak floating market in Ratchaburi province.

One of Bangkok’s fun attractions is the huge Chatuchak weekend market. With thousands of shops, you could easily spend a full day here.
