Discover the idyllic landscapes of Thailand in Southeast Asia!
Travel to Thailand is on the bucket-list of many adventurous travellers, and it’s plain to see why: Palm fringed tropical sandy beaches, endless aquamarine bays and sensational street food are just too good to refuse.
Served fresh on the menu
Thai cuisine relies on the abundant local produce, featured ingredients are invigorating lemongrass, spicy chillies and fresh seafood. The diverse menu of traditional thai food is centered around the 4 main flavour profiles: spicy, salty, sweet and sour. Foodie lovers embark on eating tours feasting at noodle shacks in Bangkok, Burmese market stalls in Mae Sot and seafood pavilions in Phuket.
City to coastline and everything in-between
Thai cities are bustling and cluttered, in stark contrast to the rural countryside in-between which are endearingly mixed with tropical jungles, rice paddies and local villages. The South is marked by craggy limestone cliffs that jut out of the cultivated landscape - most unexpected. The North fields and forests collide against waterfall laden jagged mountains. The typically drier North East region gives off a beautiful emerald hue during the rainy season, as all the rice shoots start springing up across the lands.
The Thai nation is big on Buddhism, and this is reflected across the urban and rural landscapes in gleaming temples and golden statues of Buddha. The celestial world is an integral part of their lifestyle, ushering in a particularly peace-loving people, which is how they are known around the world. A typical sight would be Banyan trees wrapped in sacred cloth to honour the resident spirits, fortune-attracting shrines ornately decorate humble homes and malls, and dashboards covered in garlands are believed to ward off spirits that could cause an accident. Visiting tourists are invited to partake in meditation retreats, religious festivals, underground cave shrines and temples.
Barefoot on the Beach
This tropical island paradise beckons all: the solo traveller and the hedonist, royalty and mere mortals. With two coastlines of pristine beauty, these jungle topped islands crop out of turquoise waters that instantly places you in a scene out of Peter Pan. Barefoot beach adventures, sea cliff jumping, kiteboarding, scuba diving with whale sharks and pretty anything your imagination can conspire - is all laid out for you in sentational Thailand.
