One of the most popular countries in Southeast Asia, Thailand’s an incredibly diverse holiday destination. A playground for even the most discerning traveller, its appeal lies in the fact that – whether this is your first or fiftieth time visiting – there’s always something new to discover on a Thailand tour. Travelling this way means you can relax, knowing that every detail’s already been taken care of, and you’ll have an expert guide to tell you everything you want to know.

Once considered something of a ‘best-kept secret,’ revered by backpackers from around the world, Thailand has evolved to become a dream tour destination, where adventure awaits you at every turn. For many, this adventure begins in the country’s capital, Bangkok – a mesmerising place that’s just as lively at 3am as it is at 10am or 5pm. Vast shopping malls and trendy bars stand shoulder to shoulder with ancient shrines, intricate temples and the extraordinary Grand Palace – the official residence of the Kings of Siam since 1782.

Away from this sprawling metropolis, though, there’s a varied landscape waiting to be explored – choice is certainly not an issue on a Thailand tour. In the north of the country, you’ll find mist-shrouded mountains and an ancient capital city, while the national parks are home to majestic waterfalls, hidden caves and an abundance of native wildlife. But its Thailand’s beaches which draw the most visitors. Besides soft golden sands and warm blue waters, they’re characterised by a dramatic background of limestone karsts.

With coastlines on both the Gulf of Thailand and Andaman Sea – plus over 1,400 islands – you can easily join a Thailand tour that’s made up exclusively of beach destinations. Or, if you want to discover the best of both worlds, pick one that combines beach time with a city break. Whatever it is you’re looking for, our experts can help plan the holiday that’s right for you. Whether you want to meet lots of like-minded travellers on a group tour, or would prefer something private just for you and your family, we can help you pick something that ticks all the boxes.

Islands and beach tours

If there’s one thing Thailand’s revered for above all else, it’s beaches. And rightly so – they really are some of the best in the world. With hundreds of islands in both the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea, there’s a beach here to suit every kind of traveller. Pretty much all of them have soft golden sands, almost impossibly blue water and jungle-clad interiors. But, beyond that, the differences are virtually endless.

If partying’s your thing, you might enjoy a Thailand tour that goes to Phi Phi. These islands received international recognition when Maya Bay, on the smaller island of Phi Phi Leh, was used as the filming location for the Leonardo DiCaprio film The Beach. While Maya Bay is now closed to visitors, Phi Phi still offers incredible snorkelling and rock-climbing – not to mention some of Thailand’s liveliest nightlife. Koh Samui, meanwhile, is great for diving and jungle trekking, while Phuket is an excellent choice for families.

But if you want to include a beach break as part of your Thailand tour, you don’t necessarily have to go to the islands. There are glorious stretches of sand on the mainland, too. Krabi, on the southwest coast, has more than its fair share of quiet bays and secluded coves, while Hua Hin – just a few hours south of Bangkok – is Thailand’s original beach resort.

Time in Bangkok

Most international flights to Thailand arrive into Bangkok, so it’s worth considering a Thailand tour that starts – or ends – with a few days in the country’s capital. Chaotic, lively yet also green and serene, this compelling city is full of contrasts. Seamlessly blending old and new, it’s both exotic and familiar – and is the perfect place to learn about Thailand’s fascinating history and rich culture.

Your tour in Bangkok will take in some of the city’s key landmarks, such asthe Jim Thompson House, Wat Arun, on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, and Wat Pho – AKA the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. Besides historic temples, you may also visit the impressive Grand Palace, sprawling Lumphini Park and – if you’re there at a weekend – the famous Chatuchak Market.

In the evenings, make the most of Bangkok’s exciting nightlife – or take the opportunity to try some of the city’s sublime street food. Your guide should be able to recommend some of the best vendors in the area you’re staying.

Wildlife and nature

If you’re looking for a Thailand tour that involves a lot of wildlife, you’ll want one that includes a visit to Khao Sok National Park. Located in the south of the country, about midway between the Gulf and Andaman coasts, this is one of the best places in the country for an outdoor adventure.

Get back to nature with a stay at the incredible Elephant Hills – a luxury tented jungle camp in the heart of the park. You’ll get to feed and bathe the gentle giants after which the resort is named, before taking a canoe out on the mighty Sok River. On a trek through the park you’ll discover a jungle which is older and more diverse than the Amazon. Sightings might include gibbons, gaur, deep and tapir – and, if you’re particularly lucky, maybe even a tiger or two.

While Khao Sok is Thailand’s premier wildlife hotspot, it’s not the only place in the country for an animal encounter. If you join a Thailand tour that goes to Chiang Mai there are other elephant sanctuaries you can visit. Or, if you head to certain islands, you’ll find there’s a whole underwater world teaming with marine life. Think parrot fish, hawksbill turtles and manta rays.

Tours to Northern Thailand

Northern Thailand feels worlds away from the rest of the country. So even if you’ve been to the Land of Smiles before, and visited Bangkok or some of the islands, you’ll still discover something new on a Thailand tour in this part of the country.

The gateway to Northern Thailand is Chiang Mai, which is where most tours in this region begin. The ancient capital of the Lanna Kingdom, it’s a beautiful and tranquil city that delights with its understated charm. While there’s plenty to see and do within the city limits, you’ll want to join a tour that also takes in the surrounding countryside. Besides caves and waterfalls, the forested mountains are home to remote hill-tribe villages and ethical elephant sanctuaries.

The city of Chiang Rai – further north – is also not to be missed. This is where you’ll find the spectacular White Temple. Contemporary and thoroughly unconventional, it’s an icon of modern Thai architecture. Press on even further and you’ll eventually reach the Golden Triangle – so-called because it’s where the borders of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar meet. A highlight of a Thailand tour here is cruising along the Mekong River in a long-tailed speedboat.
