Thailand, the ‘land of smiles’ formerly known as Siam, has a distinctly oriental feeling with its colourful markets and golden temples. This Buddhist nation celebrates its religion everwhere making it profoundly different to the western world.
The gateway and capital city, Bangkok, is a mega-city and yet it comfortably houses 400 year old temples alongside modern day skyscrapers. World-famous Thai cuisine is ever present in the street food scene and chef-hatted restaurants.
The landscapes of Thailand vary markedly. In the south, white sandy beaches and jungle covered islands fringe the azure blue waters of Koh Samui and Phuket. A plethora of water sports can be enjoyed with a touch of history and culture thrown in. Not to mention some of the world’s best spa and wellness retreats to round it off!
Northern Thailand is home to lush tropical rainforest clad mountains, glittering temples and many distinct and colourful ethnic ‘hill tribes’ and villages. Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai both provide a great base from which to discover this rich cultural heartland.
Thailand is vibrant and steeped in history and rich Buddhism culture, a dynamic blend of old and new.

12 Days Classic Thailand
The Land of a 1,000 Elephants is brimming with history, vibrancy and colour. Bustling Bangkok is the true oriental city and no visit is complete without an evening cruise on the Chao Phraya River to view the historical Buddhist landmarks and modern architecture. In stark contrast is the Golden Triangle region in the north where exploring the forest on elephant back is the only way to travel. Awake to the sound of birdsong and trumpeting elephants in your luxury tent with views to Laos and Myanmar on your doorstep.
Culminate your adventure in indulgent luxury at the Ritz Carlton on Koh Samui. Here you can relax your mind, body and soul through wellness programmes, cultural immersions or culinary journeys.When to Travel
