If you’re looking to enjoy the vibrant hustle and bustle of Thailand’s big cities, Bangkok is the place to be. With close to 12 million inhabitants, the country’s capital is definitely at the heart of the action. Discover Bangkok’s historical neighbourhoods weaving along the Chao Phraya River and explore the floating markets where you are sure to find anything and everything!
If nature is more what you’re after, Chiang Mai and its zen, relaxing atmosphere are sure to please. The lush jungle in this part of Thailand even has elephants and tigers! Visiting an elephant sanctuary (where the goal is to ensure animals are well taken care of) is sure to be one of the highlights of your visit. You can even help bathe and feed these amazing creatures!
In stark contrast to the city, the Island of Phuket has the most beautiful beaches and exceptional scenery. Its people are also some of the most incredibly kind souls you’ll ever meet. From north to south, the island’s constantly changing scenery will take you from temples and forests to rivers and volcanic mountains—a testament to the country’s awe-inspiring beauty.
