Spoilt for choice
Begin your Thailand holiday by taking a city tour of Bangkok, or otherwise put your peddle power to good use on a cycling tour. From the capital, you can sign up for a day trip to the River Kwai for a glimpse of the infamous Death Railway, or take trips to the Tiger Temple or Ayutthaya to explore the fascinating ruins there.
Head further north to Chiang Mai to explore some fantastic cultural sights and indulge in some great hiking opportunities. This bustling northern city is popular with visitors, not least because it contains some of the country's best bamboo rafting opportunities.
Away from the hustle and bustle of Thailand's cultural capitals, the picturesque Thai islands offer some superb tour opportunities. Travel to Phuket or Koh Samui to admire the pristine turquoise waters, before laying your towel along the golden sands and letting some glorious sunshine reinvigorate your soul.
Boat tours let you explore some of the smaller islands, many of which offer first-class snorkelling and scuba diving, including Surin Islands, Koh Tachai and Similan Islands.
