Cheap Thailand Holidays

Thailand

Overview

Thailand’s sugar-white sands, verdant landscapes, ancient temples, vibrant culinary scene, cultural sites and nightlife make it one of the most spectacular places to visit in the world. With beautiful islands and eclectic cities, Thailand holidays can be as varied as you wish – from paradise beaches to bustling street markets. Love beaches? The tropical sands of Maya Bay, Railay Beach and PhraNang Cave Beach are among the most beautiful in the country, caressed by clear seas and tropical forests. One of the best all inclusive resorts in Thailand, holidays to Phuket boast fantastic beaches and luxury hotels, plus its location makes a great base for island-hopping.

 

Thailand holidays serve up far more beyond the sand. Visit an elephant sanctuary, hike through lush forests, discover incredible scuba and snorkelling sites, tick off awe-inspiring temples and experience culinary delights on your holidays in Thailand. If you want a change of scenery, swap sand for cityscapes and explore the fast-paced capital of Bangkok.

 

The ‘Land Of Smiles’ is sure to satisfy time and time again no matter where or when you visit.

Places to go and things to do in Thailand

 Phuket

 Phuket

Phuket is Thailand’s largest island and attracts thousands of visitors every year.

Phuket has a tropical climate, which means it’s never really cold. The peak season is from November to February, when the weather is cool and dry, with temperatures hovering between a toasty 23°C and 30°C. After that, the mercury hits the mid-thirties and soars until May. While you can expect rain from June to October, it’s a great time to visit since you’ll encounter less tourist crowds.

Phuket beaches offer something for everyone. Party central Patong, popular for its noisy bars and restaurants, is also among the world’s top diving sites. Unwind at Bang Tao Beach, a long stretch of sand where you can lounge or go paragliding and waterskiing. Grab a beer at Karon, walk down to laid-back Kata or go for a swim on Surin Beach.

You’ll be met by an abundance of excellent Thai and International bites while you’re in Phuket. Feast your eyes (and bellies) on cuisines ranging from Italian and Middle Eastern to Indian and Japanese. If you're searching for street-food, you'll find it at Phuket Town Central Markets and the bustling Banzaan Night Market in Patong Beach, where stalls abound with exotic fruits.

Bangkok

Bangkok, the pulsating capital of Thailand, a city that perfectly blends tradition and modernity to offer an invigorating holiday experience.

Bangkok enjoys a tropical climate with three distinct seasons. Temperatures average at a lush 25°C in December and January in what is perceived as the ‘cool season’, making it ideal for a dose of winter sun. Thailand’s hot season occurs between March and June, followed by the rainy season until October – so plan ahead and book flights to Bangkok earlier in the year.

If you want to wine and dine, indulge in delicious food and cocktails in one of the city’s many rooftop bars and restaurants, such as Vanilla Sky, Sirocco & Sky Bar or The Speakeasy – with panoramic views to match. Alternatively, head to world-famous Khao San Road to party the night away in the reputed ‘back-packing centre of the world’. 

Whether you’re enjoying a multiple-course dinner or grabbing a bite from a street-side food stall, be sure to sample exquisite renditions of Thailand’s fragrant curries, feast on sweet and spicy papaya salads and savour sticky rice with coconut for a traditional dessert. Head to Yaowarat (Chinatown) for a mixture of Asian cuisines, visit Lookshin Tongchai in Soi Rambuttri for handmade grilled meatballs or pick up Pad Thai from Pad Thai Thip Samai in Phra khanong for just £1!

Koh Samui

Koh Samui is renowned for its nightlife, most notably its colourful Full Moon parties.

Taking place – as the name suggests – with each monthly full moon, revellers flock to the southernmost tip of Koh Phangan to dance the night away on the soft sands of this heavenly island. Chaweng Beach is a hive of activity from dusk till dawn with its restaurants, bars and nightclubs, while the island’s famous Cabaret performances offer a dazzling spectacle.

The large Central Festival Samui shopping centre is Koh Samui’s best shopping location, filled with countless options from designer labels to brilliant bargains as good as anything you’ll find in Bangkok. 

Chaweng Beach is Koh Samui’s top beach destination, attracting holidaymakers with its dazzling ivory white sands, breathtaking scenery and lively nightlife. Lamai Beach offers a similar blend of fun and relaxation, whilst Bophut entices with its charm as one of the oldest beaches in Koh Samui. 

 Phi Phi

It isn’t hard to see why this bay was seen as the perfect place to film the Hollywood film The Beach. With steep limestone cliffs surrounding the bay, powder white sand beach, clear blue sea and the ideal place to snorkel, this really is paradise. 

For the ultimate view of the beautiful islands of Phi Phi, we would recommend taking the leisurely 30-minute stroll up to the view point, at 186m above sea level. The path is well trodden and paved in most places and you will be grateful for the cold drinks, snacks and ice creams that can be bought when you reach the top. When you do arrive, the views are truly magnificent.

Phi Phi is not only blessed with beautiful bays and beaches, it also has magnificent topography with thrilling rock climbing opportunities available on many of the tall limestone cliffs. Synonymous with this region, these limestone cliffs provide the perfect place for both beginners and the more experienced climbers. Many of the professional companies across the island have the highest safety standards, so whether it’s a full day experience you’re after or a shorted tour, there is something to satisfy all of the adrenalin junkies out there.
