Luxury holidays in Thailand

  • Thailand Luxury holidays

    Thailand has diverse geography and a diverse national culture too, with several different landscapes to be found in the country. In the north, the Thai highlands are a mountainous region, with lush greenery carpeting much of the country, creating the Garden of Eden feeling that attracts many people to a luxury holiday in Thailand. The Andaman Sea is a likely destination for many of those visitors, as it is home to the main luxury resorts not just of Thailand, but of this part of Asia, including Phuket, Trang, Phang Nga, Krabi and Ranong.

    Idyllic Andaman resorts in Thailand

    The resorts along the Andaman Sea are Thailand's main tourist attraction, with picturesque beaches and rocky outcrops covered in the distinctive greenery that makes this part of the world feel especially fertile. The views are at once dramatic yet relaxing, and looking out across the waters of the Andaman is enough to give many visitors a sense of a homecoming, not necessarily to modern-day Thailand, but to an Eden-like playground of the world as a whole. Spend your stay in one of these luxury resorts and, even without exploring the rest of the country, you should see enough to feel as though you have had a life-altering experience, and one you want to relive again and again.

    Elephants - the emblem of Thailand

    If you get the chance to add some elephants to your trip, you should do so, as they are Thailand's national symbol, with about 2,000 living in the wild and many more kept in captivity too. Indian Elephants are one of more than 250 species of mammal that live in Thailand, and of these several are on the critically endangered list, with efforts ongoing to preserve their population.

    When should I visit Thailand?

    Many people are drawn to Thailand as a spiritual destination, rather than basing their visit on considerations of temperature, rainfall and so on - and with monsoon season in the early summer, and through until autumn, a summertime visit gives a great chance to see the land come alive with the rains. The typical winter months of November and December are dry and the coldest time of year, and with the new calendar, temperatures rise once again, with some areas becoming very hot in late March and into April before the monsoons return in May, June and July.
