Seeing the Grand Palace is one of the most popular things to do in Bangkok and an absolute must for your Thailand trip package. Located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, very close to the Khaosan Road, this sprawling complex of magnificent palace buildings is set around various courtyards and gardens and is home to beautiful Wat Phra Kaeo, Thailand's holiest of Buddhist sites.
Live your best beach life on Koh Phi Phi
Thailand's islands are world famous and Koh Phi Phi does not disappoint. Pristine white-sand beaches, crystal clear waters and jaw-dropping rock formations await. Swim, snorkel, try water sports, relax with a coconut water or take a local boat around the bay, the choice is yours on a Thailand holiday.
Explore ruins at Ayutthaya
Ayutthaya was once the capital of the mighty empire of Siam, full of magnificent palaces, dazzling temples and a population larger than that of 18th century London. Though the city was ravaged in 1767 by the Burmese army, many of the remaining ruins have been restored, and are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you're a history buff, make sure you add it to your Thailand travel bucket list.
Take a cooking class in Chiang Mai
Love Thai food? You can learn to make it on our trips to Thailand! Taking a cooking class is easily one of the most popular things to do in Chiang Mai, though they're available throughout the country. Courses usually include a visit to the local market with a detailed guide to the produce on offer, along with a guide to Thai flavours and the preparation and tasting of three or four delicious dishes that'll elevate your status to 'legendary' next time you cook for your mates.
Swim in the breathtaking Erawan Falls, Kanchanaburi
Kanchanaburi is perhaps most (in)famously home to the Death Railway, but it has so much more to offer. The 7-tiered Erawan Falls can be found at Erawan National Park in Kanchanaburi, one of the most famous National Parks of Thailand. These instaworthy waterfalls are made up from seven levels of emerald-hued waterfalls and ponds, and the best part? Taking a refreshing dip in the clear waters.
