Thailand

Overview

Venerated by tourists the world over, Thailand has a unique alchemy of ingredients that keeps us coming back, time and time again.

It’s a country of ornate temples and floating river markets, pungent green curries and 5-star luxuries. It’s an intoxicating mix of cities, jungles and beaches bathed in glorious year-round sunshine.

Alongside megamalls and a pulsating business district, Bangkok still keeps its history with its majestic Grand Palace, serene reclining Buddha at Wat Pho, and the waterways of the Chao Praya. Outside the city, the ancient once-glorious city of Ayuthaya is fascinating to explore. The Kanchanaburi Region is most known for the Bridge over the River Kwai – while a sad reminder of the brutality suffered, the beautifully preserved WWII cemetary provides for poignant reflection.

Northern Thailand’s culture and cuisine are distinctly different from international impressions of Thai food and culture, due to its strong hill-tribe influences and former Burmese city.

Chiang Mai has grown and flourished outside of the moated walls of the Old City, a tiny complex riddled with boutique hotels, street stalls and temples which makes for an interesting stroll on arrival.

Chiang Rai was once the centre for opium production in Thailand is now a quiet town that is the gateway to the Golden Triangle area. Learn the tricks of the trade from mahouts at the Elephant Camp, hop between the borders of Laos and Myanmar, and visit the colourful hill-tribes that still inhabit the lush green hills.

Sometimes though, “barefoot” + “beach” are the two magic words. Thailand is a place where you can chill out in style – a luxury boutique retreat, yoga on a pagoda nestled on top of a cliff, a seafood barbecue with sand between your toes.

Phuket boasts some of the best hotels we’ve encountered in all our years of travel, with unparalleled service, sumptuous spas and world-class golf courses. The gleaming white beaches of Koh Samui now have some very high-end villas and hotels, while Koh Phi Phi and Krabi have wild mangroves, superb scuba diving and towering limestone islands – perfect for laid-back nature-lovers.

Whether you want to go deep-sea fishing, watch elephant polo, or charter a private yacht, our team can arrange it. With extensive first-hand experience of Thailand’s multitude of hotels and itinerary options, Lightfoot promises you an unforgettable, tailor-made taste of Thailand.
