Best time to be there
November to March. April is often the hottest month of the year, and also the month of the celebratory 'Songkran' festivals. May to October is the rainy season, with short bursts of rainstorms refreshing the green paddy fields once more.

Thailand is known as the Land of Smiles and there's an intense feeling of optimism almost everywhere you go, the locals' hospitable and friendly. Our Undiscovered Thailand and Laos itinerary is one of our most popular trips, and rewards travellers with a slice of authentic Thai and Laotian life, harder to find in more popular tourist spots.
INFORMATION ABOUT THAILANDWith 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.
