Whether you are visiting Thailand on a dedicated trip or as part of a tour that takes in other countries in south-east Asia, you are sure to fall in love with this vibrant nation. Characterised by beautiful beaches, historic temples and breath-taking natural scenery, Thailand is a country that combines the hustle and bustle of economic centres like Bangkok with idyllic and relaxing islands such as Ko Chang.
Something that is sure to feature heavily during your tour of Thailand is the food. You may think that you have tasted Thai cuisine before, but it will be nothing compared to the delicious flavours found in the real thing. Check out our food and drink departures for special trips that include more chances to try the local culinary delights.
You will be able to immerse yourself in the culture here by interacting with the friendly people and seeing some of the important historical sights. On certain tours, you will be able to visit the filming location for ‘The Bridge on the River Kwai’, explore the UNESCO World Heritage listed temples at Ayuthaya and experience the vivid sights and sounds at the Golden Triangle, where Thailand converges with Laos and Myanmar.
The beaches are a major highlight for people visiting on a cruise and many ships also dock in Laem Chabang for access to Bangkok.
