Best of Thailand East Coast (May - Oct) SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Loud, bright, chaotic and delightful, Bangkok is a city of modern excesses intermingled with simple traditions, all wrapped up in the famous smiles of the locals.
Awash with stunning temples, fabulous markets and a lively city centre, charming Chiang Mai is rich in culture and the gateway to the northern hilltribes.
Meet the hilltribes of Northern Thailand while walking through lush, verdant jungle, enjoying the hospitality, cuisine and friendliness of the people who call this area of Thailand home.
Chiang Mai means 'new city', even though it was founded in 1296! It's a favourite among travellers due to its relaxed feel and cultural richness.
Bangkok is more than just colourful city streets, khlongs (canals) weave their way through suburbs, forest parks green up the city and Buddhist temples help bring serenity.
Khao Sok National Park is simply breathtaking. Dense rainforests hide a myriad of exotic animals and plants, and walking trails revel awesome waterfalls, lakes and caves.
Famous for its gorgeous white-sand beaches, aquamarine waters, myriad of things to do and spoils of paradise, the island of Ko Samui is a firm favourite among travellers.
Ko Tao is a small island perfect to escape the crowds and don a snorkel or go diving - the underwater world here is spectacular.
Once a small trading post, Bangkok has grown enormously and is home to over 11 million people, with cultural gems still shining amongst the modern-day sights.
