Thailand is one of the world’s most renowned holiday destinations, with a wide variety of things to see and do, from culture, religion, food, nature, water, adventure, sports and myriad relaxing activities. There are thousands of temples and cultural centres promoting the unique Thai culture, as well as Royal Thai palaces to witness. Food plays an integral role in the Thai way of life, and with Thai cuisine growing in popularity worldwide, authentic Thai food from the streets or in fine dining restaurants will certainly not disappoint anyone.

Thailand, which translates to “land of the free,” was originally known as Siam and is one of the world’s most visited countries.  Buddha figures are ever-present in the “land of smiles,” where bustling, modern cities are juxtaposed with ancient ruins, glistening beaches and gilded temples. The nation is home to the acclaimed Thai massage and cuisine that is known to balance sweet, sour, salty, bitter and spicy flavors.  Our visit to Thailand will include all of this and more!
