The country of Thailand remains one of Asia‘s most gratifying and indulgent vacation destinations. This Buddhist “Land of Smiles” has it all, from exotic culture, tantalizing fresh cuisine, colourful history and culture, to spectacular scenery, royal palaces, pristine beaches, jungles, and exotic wildlife. Imagine gazing out over the turquoise seas from your private infinity pool, enjoying a holistic beauty treatment at a luxurious oceanside spa, shopping in glitzy malls, or enjoying a private long-tail boat tour through Bangkok’s canals. On a Thailand vacation, the possibilities are endless.
Thailand is the ultimate destination for those wishing to indulge in an exotic wellness holiday. The country is home to a wide range of high end resorts like Four Seasons, Banyan Tree, Aman, Shangri La, Mandarin Oriental, and more. Many Thai hotel chains like Centara, Avista, and new boutique hotels offer the same level of luxury and comfort at a fantastic price. In addition to spa services like facials and body wraps, many hotels offer in-house healing modalities like Thai massage and Ayurvedic treatments.
Warm and Happy People
The warmth and hospitality of the people of Thailand adds to the luxury experience. Visitors are warmly welcomed and local people are gentle and respectful. The same behaviour is reflected in service given to tourists at hotels and on various Thailand tours. The Thai people are fun-loving, and the service provided in luxury properties is truly impeccable.
In Chiang Rai, located in the heart of the country’s hill tribe area, you can meet tribe members of the many ethnic minority groups that live in the mountainous region, and learn about their traditional farm lifestyles. Meet revered elders and angelic babies as you take a walk through the village and surrounding countryside and learn about self-sustaining Thai village life.
Incredible History and Culture
Bangkok’s Wat Phra Kaew Temple is decorated in flamboyant colours, making a magnificent setting for Thailand’s most revered image, the Emerald Buddha. Central Thailand is resplendent with palaces, temples, and archaeological sites, and the region in and around Bangkok offers 5-star hotels, private luxury vehicle transfers, private tours, and exclusive dining experiences. Mix with the celebrities at Bangkok’s Mandarin Oriental, and live like ancient kings as you explore this storied region in style.
Exotic Wildlife and Adventure
Travel to Northern Thailand to go trekking to tribal villages, feed orphaned elephants, or zipline through the jungle. At luxury hotels like Four Seasons Chiang Mai, get acquainted with local Thai culture on the terraced rice fields of the mystical Mae Rim Valley. At the Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle in Chiang Rai, guests can interact with majestic Asian elephants in their natural habitat, embark on private wilderness treks, and enjoy Thai cooking lessons. Thailand tourism offerings are so well integrated that Anantara, Shangri La, and many other boutique hotels provide a great stay as well as authentic Thai experiences.
