Thailand Highlights

Spectacularly beautiful beaches that dazzle in the sunlight, cities that buzz all the way around the clock, rainforests of untouched natural splendour stretching as far as the eye can see... Thailand really does have it all.

A pure image of tropical splendour, nothing quite compares with experiencing Thailand in person, where pearly white sands, crystalline oceans and emerald forest hues appear almost impossibly more vivid when seen with your own eyes.

An enchanting land where the settings are epic, the cultures are fascinating, the food is fabulously fragrant and the pace is as fast or as slow as you want it to be, a Thailand holiday is a wild dream turned into an unforgettable reality.

Packing tips

One of south east Asia’s largest countries and a hugely popular tourist destination, Thailand is a spectacular country filled with enchanting adventures. From pristine beaches to bustling Bangkok, it can be hard to pack light when exploring the treasures, so let’s take a look.

Thailand is hot so beachwear is a must, along with shorts, t-shirts, flip flops and sandals. Try not to pack heavy items, aim to carry light materials when heading to the tropics; sunscreen, sunglasses, hats and after sun are also useful.

Being such a popular tourist destination, you can get most sundries and medication in Thailand so don’t worry too much about things that you might or might not need on holiday.

Temples are religious areas so be sure to carry clothing that covers your knees and shoulders if you will be visiting them. Other than that, look for layers with items such as light cardigans and sweaters if it is a cooler day and for the evenings.

It can rain sometimes so it might be worth carrying a poncho and comfortable shoes with a dress option if you head out in the evening. Don’t forget the insect repellent either!

Weather in Thailand

Most of the year, Thailand is a humid and tropical country wherever you go but there are differences in the northern and southern regions. It is often said that November to February is the best period to head to Thailand as it isn’t intensely hot and rainfall is kept to a minimum.

Between November and May, northern Thailand is mainly dry, with the latter three months having a higher average temperature and then from May to November you can expect heavy rain as the southwest monsoon season brings wet weather.

In southern Thailand, we have the dry and wet seasons but this does vary depending on the coast in which you are holidaying. East coast sees heavy rain from September to December whilst heavy storms hit the west coast between April and October.
