Thailand Holidays

If Thailand is the 'land of a thousand smiles', then Bangkok, The City of Angels, is a city that will surely leave you beaming from arrival till departure. The city moves at a pace a thousand times faster than most others, so see the sights of the city like a local we'd recommend you whizz around the streets on an tuk tuk tour. You'll find yourself amazed by the grandeur of the Grand Palace glistening brightly in the sunlight. You can pull up a stool at a hawker stall to try the tasty street food and finish the day with a sundowner, surveying the awesome skyline from an exclusive open air roof-top bar. The cities of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai act as gateways to Northern Thailand, which has a history, culture and cuisine all of its own. Learn to be an elephant mahout in Thailand's famed Golden Triangle;barter to your heart's content at the Chiang Mai night bazaar;go walking in the beautiful countryside or visit the numerous hill tribes of the area. We can't mention Thailand without talking about its wonderful beaches though. The country has long been a mecca for hedonistic sun seekers and with good reason as it has some of the most beautiful stretches of coastline anywhere in Asia. From the private island retreat of Soneva Kiri on Koh Kood near the Cambodian border;to the coconut palm fringed beaches of Koh Samui, the luxury five-star resorts of Phuket and the islands dotted in between the karst limestone outcrops jutting out of the turquoise coloured Andaman Sea, the country is a beach-goers paradise with locals ready to warmly say sawasdee (welcome) to Thailand.

Thailand with A&K
With peachy beaches, exotic landscapes, and rich Buddhist culture, Thailand has been our seductive South East Asian hub for over two decades. A&K's large Bangkok office sits that the heart of a region-wide network of experienced, highly connected staff on call 24 hours a day - a presence that can make a vital difference to your holiday.

Just ask our guests who were there in 2008. For a very short time, the 'Land of a Thousand Smiles' wore a slightly different expression. Political demonstrations closed the busy airport. Travellers couldn't enter or leave, plans were in chaos, people were desperate. Of the hundreds of A&K guests we helped, one was particularly grateful. With a high profile book signing in Japan just two days away, we organised an urgent overland exit into Cambodia, crossing the border just minutes before it closed, having booked an onward flight to Seoul, then Tokyo. It was the stuff of Hollywood movies.

Abercrombie & Kent holidays to Thailand, it goes without saying, are usually a little less tense, a little more luxurious. You can dive into Bangkok's enthralling blend of frenetic street life, stately palaces and photogenic canal markets, while staying in some of the planet's most sumptuous hotels. It's the launch point into an intoxicating country, from the jungle covered mountains of Chiang Mai in the north, where you can hike to hill villages or train as an elephant mahout, to the age-weathered 13th century stones of Sukhothai and the coastal honey pot of Krabi.

We'll take you off the mainland too. Thailand's islands are justifiably popular with powder sand and vertiginous forest. It might be fast-developing Phuket or Koh Samui, with its recent explosion of luxury hotels, or the back-to-back curling beaches of Koh Phi Phi, or dramatic limestone cliffs of Phang Nga Bay. Whichever you chose, we know you won't be disappointed.
