Thailand

Thailand is incredibly popular with holiday-makers and travellers and justifiably so. Many visit just for the beaches, islands, snorkelling or scuba diving but it’s the culture and history of Thailand that make it one of our favourite places on the planet. Also, of course, because of the stunning, fresh, complex, light, food in Thailand.

If you’d like help with planning your trip to Thailand, you can download our Thailand travel planning resource, or use our custom trip planning service.

Thailand Travel. Our guides, tips, and experiences to help you travel in Thailand.

Thailand travel is possibly the easiest in Southeast Asia because of good infrastructure and a well-worn tourist trail. Generations of travellers have enjoyed Thailand before you and paved the way in terms of facilities, transportation and accommodation. Read our post on the best ways to get around Thailand, that is essential reading.

As soon as borders open we look forward to visiting Thailand again, and we’ve been dozens of times, each time finding something new to add to our Thailand travel guides and blogs. You’ll find them all below.

If you’re looking for a general overview of travel in Thailand, our Thailand travel blog page is best. Alternatively, there is “Thailand With Kids.” if you’re looking for reassurance that Thailand is an OK destination for family travel. We can only tell you that we’ve had very few problems in Thailand, as a young couple and as a family.

We have guides here for ancient cities  (Sukhothai, is stunning), Northern Thailand, Chiang Mai, Pai, Kanchanaburi, the floating markets and railway market, some beaches and islands and, of course, stunning Bangkok. One of our most-loved cities in the world.

Some of the best beach destinations in Thailand include:

We cover all of these on our site and we’re always looking to add more destinations in Thailand.

Thailand is, of course, a major travel hub in Southeast Asia. From Bangkok or many other parts of Thailand, you can journey on to Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, possibly Myanmar. Overland travel from Thailand is also easy with good busses and shuttles. Within Thailand the train service is good.

Thailand guides, places to visit in Thailand, how to travel in Thailand, experiences of travelling in Thailand, highlights and destinations. Everything from planning a trip, to booking trains and buses, to currency conversions in Thailand.
