Thailand is one of our favourite Asian countries, probably because we love the food! Thailand is a country rich in history, has incredible temples and Buddhas, beaches, stunning islands and a vibe that is so typically Asian.
It’s also the favourite of many people and is one of the most visited Asian destinations. With the frenetic city of Bangkok and a shopping mecca at your fingertips, it’s a great place for a stopover en route to Europe or just for a quick trip.
Must-do: Bangkok, any of the beautiful islands like Krabi, Phi Phi, Koh Samui and Koh Tao, Ayutthaya, Grand Palace, Wat Arun, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai
How to get to Thailand: Thai Airways is the national airline but a range of full service and low-cost carriers fly to Thailand including AirAsia and Jetstar. Check out Skyscanner for flights and availability.

The best place to watch sunset in Bangkok is opposite Wat Arun
You’ll never find it difficult to locate a temple in Bangkok, but Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) is one of the most spectacular, and it should be on your list of things to see if you are ever in Bangkok.
