Thailand, When Culture Meets Modernization

Thailand is a beautiful and fascinating country with its breath taking scenery and exotic beach resorts, but what makes it so special is the Thai people, they are a very polite, helpful and a calm race, which is all down to their religion and culture.

Thailand is fast becoming an extremely desirable location for weddings and honeymoons and it is easy to see why. There is something for everyone…indulge in exotic foods, be amazed at glorious temples, be pampered in luxurious Spas, swim in crystal clear waters and lay on deserted white beaches. You can enjoy glorious sunshine and warm weather all year round, dance the night away and get a bargain shopping in one of the many markets and bazaars. For the adventure lover you can trek, ride elephants and go white water rafting, dive into underwater paradises and explore ancient wonders.

Islands and Beaches

The coastline of Thailand is one of the most popular places for visitors to stay. With a tropical climate, abundant sea life, soft white sand and clear aqua waters, is it any wonder! 

Explore the beautiful Marine National Parks and islands by foot or by boat or take part in an organised tour. Have a go at snorkeling or diving to discover coral reefs, shipwrecks, dolphins and sea turtles.

Markets and Shopping

Both modern shopping malls and traditional markets help make Thailand a shopping paradise. At the malls, designer fashions are available at a fraction of the price you’d pay back home. Products such as local cotton and silk homewares, lacquerware, silver, hilltribe clothing, tapestries, woodcarvings, precious stones and all kinds of Thai handicrafts can be found at the many open-air markets and street vendors at extremely affordable prices.

Food and Dining

Eating out in Thailand is so inexpensive that many Thais never cook for themselves! Thai food is notoriously spicy but most restaurants can accommodate sensitive foreign tastebuds. Try delicious fresh seafood, vegetarian delicacies or one of the many curries or stir-fries Thailand is famous for. There are many restaurants to choose from as well as food stalls, noodle, rice and soup shops. Maybe even consider learning the art of Thai cooking at one of the many cooking schools.

Safaris and Treks

If you love hiking, trekking and experiencing the great outdoors, Thailand has an adventure for you. From easy day walks to challenging multi-day treks, all levels of experience and fitness are catered for. Travel with experienced and knowledgeable guides to remote villages, where you’ll enjoy the simple but friendly hospitality of the hilltribe people. Combine your trek with an exotic elephant safari or bamboo river rafting, for a memorable, once in a lifetime experience. Many treks combine a number of activities within the one program.


The cities and towns of Thailand are alive with things to do once the sun goes down. Try one of the many bars, restaurants or clubs for a taste of the lively side of Thai culture. Take in a movie or watch the world go by from one of the many streetside cafes.

Thai Massage

Feel the tension drain out of your body as you experience the wonder and rejuvenating power of a Thai massage. For many, massage is a luxury to be indulged in once in a while, but in Thailand, you’ll find both the price and quality of massage so good, you’ll want to have a massage every day! The Thai style of massage focuses on pressure points and can involve the use of hands, elbows, knees and even feet! Choose a full body massage, herbal, oil, foot or facial massage. A wonderful way to relax and feel special during your holiday.


Bangkok, or Krung Thep (City of Angels) can seem a noisy, busy and humid place at first, but take the time to explore the many museums, temples, restaurants, clubs, theatres and art galleries and you will soon appreciate the full range of activities Bangkok has to offer. 

Find a bargain at one of the bazaars, markets or street stalls or indulge in designer label shopping at one of the many malls. If you feel like taking it easy, take in the sights from your own private boat, exploring the canals and traditional way of life along the Chao Phraya River. A visit to the Grand Palace and Temple of the reclining Buddha is also a must!

Museums and Temples

Visiting a museum is a great way to learn about the culture, history and art of Thailand. You’ll find National Museums located in many centers around the country. 

Colorful and glittering temples made of marble, mosaic and gold are scattered throughout all areas of Thailand. These impressive structures are incredible to look at but can also be a peaceful place to meditate and catch a glimpse of daily Buddhist life.

National Parks

Thailand has both monsoon forest and rain forest filled with bird-life, fruit and bamboo trees, many orchids and wildlife. Khao Sok, Sirinat and Doi Suthep are just 3 of Thailand’s 79 National Parks. Plan a day trip or stay at a bungalow, take a trek or a short walk along a trail through the jungle to see hill tribes, waterfalls, caves and magnificent rock formations.
