Destination Information for Thailand
The Thai capital city of Bangkok is a mixture of miles and miles of street stalls, colourful markets, skyscrapers and historical temples. Thailand itself has beautiful sandy beaches, excellent nightlife, great shopping facilities and amazing food. With the sun shining all year round, you will be spoilt for choice regarding the best time of year to visit Thailand. If you like a bit of a breeze, Thailand is the perfect place thanks to the monsoons from November to February, with temperatures of 25-30°C degrees in Bangkok. March to June is the dry season and can be very hot - temperatures usually hit 35-40°C degrees.
When visiting Thailand, many people opt to enjoy the beautiful white sandy beaches with crystal clear waters, perfect for relaxing and soaking up the sun. The sea is lovely and warm, ideal for a spot of swimming. In addition to the beaches, there are Buddhist temples, National Parks, rivers and breathtaking waterfalls to visit.
Phuket Island is one of the most popular islands to explore - you can wander the market stalls, have a bite to eat in the restaurants or a relaxing drink in a bar. If that isn’t enough, the nightlife is amazing!
Bangkok is home to many monuments, cultural attractions and museums, as well as boutiques, shops and market stalls. Visit the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the Grand Palace or, for amazing views, climb the Golden Mount.
