On a luxury holiday to Thailand, with Elegant Resorts, you can expect to experience a striking landscape, offering diversity on another level; northern regions proffer towering peaks and steepening valleys, while the soils of central and easterly locations combine agricultural flood plains with fertile hills, accommodating a vast, maturing jungle scene. Further south, white-sand beaches and beautiful tropical islands offer attractive, secluded hideaways, ensuring a memorable stay.
Whilst on your luxury holiday, we recommend you take a cruise on the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok, wander around Chinatown or sample the serene atmosphere of a temple. Then, head south to the island of Phuket. Nestling in the balmy Andaman Sea, it boasts lush tropical landscapes and an abundance of superb sandy beaches. Krabi's coastline travels down the west coast of Thailand, while the island of Koh Yao Noi lies halfway between Phuket and Krabi.
On the opposite side of the peninsula, the Gulf of Thailand is home to the much quieter island, Koh Samui where you'll find sleepy villages and forested hillsides sweeping down to palm-fringed beaches. You might also consider Hua Hin, the oldest and, probably, most traditional Thai resort, or Koh Kood, one of the larger yet least developed islands, and Chiang Mai, with its gilded temples and museums where you can also enjoy an elephant-ride into nearby forests. Khao Lak, tragically struck by the 2004 Tsunami, is located in the Phang Nga province.
