As the number-one holiday destination in Asia, Thailand has hotels to satisfy every budget, expectation and whim. From Bangkok to the southern beaches, Thailand puts the Far East within easy reach.
First port of call for most international visitors is the bustling capital, Bangkok, a metropolis as famed for its spiritual inclination as for its shopping and pulsating nightlife. Here, skyscrapers and nightspots sit side by side with traditional markets and graceful temples, which resound to the chanting of Buddhist mantras. Connecting it all is the BTS Skytrain, which will whisk you from your hotel to sights and monuments across the city, avoiding the gridlocked road network.
To the north, historic Chiang Mai presents a mellower ambiance, where visitors can immerse themselves deeply in the Thai way of life and journey out amongst tribal villages and picturesque highland scenery. More often than not, your trip will take you to the steamy south, where some of finest spa resorts and hotels in Thailand are scatted along palm-fringed, sand-sprinkled beaches and numerous idyllic islands dotted offshore.
Book your Thailand hotel between November and the end of February, when humidity is at its lowest and the mercury hovers between the high 20s and the low 30s.
