From the mountains in the north to the beaches in the south, there is no place in Asia that can offer such a diverse blend of top-notch experiences. Furthermore, the Thais are renowned for their graciousness and charm that makes every visitors feel at home.
High season in Thailand from October to February when the weather is mild and dry, however many visitors from the UK prefer to visit during the between March and May when the weather is hotter yet still dry. Typically the rainy season lasts between June and October, with rivers and waterfalls at their most spectacular, but with beaches at their worst. During the rainy season you can expect rain to last from 30 minutes to 2 hours, but then clear skies and sun, but some days can be overcast, humid and without rain, which can be particularly uncomfortable.
We would recommend that with any trip to Thailand you should spend a few nights in Bangkok and experience the hustle and bustle of this fascinating city, combining it with one of the following:
Beaches and Spa hotels of Phuket. The classic honeymoon, featuring luxury hotels, golden palm-fringed beaches and fabulous restaurants.
Elephants and Adventure in Northern Thailand. For couples looking for an action packed trip combining comfortable hotels with eco-lodges and fun activities.
If you are planning a trip to Northern Thailand it is an inexpensive leisurely day’s float downstream to neighbouring Laos, where you can experience the natural beauty and culture of Asia’s least developed country.
We flew out with British Airways, and back with Qantus. Both offer Premium Economy for roughly double the cost of an economy ticket. Qantus’s Premium Economy is of a particularly high standard; comparable with the old style business class and well worth considering to make the trip extra special.
Flight time is 11 – 12 hours, and we would advise opting for a late evening departure.
Most of the larger airline companies fly to Thailand from various locations around the UK.
