Thailand Holidays

Thailand holidays have long been a favourite for well-heeled nomads and the first port of call for curious hedonists. But there's more to Thailand than full moon beach parties, ladyboys and Bangkok cabarets. A tropical patchwork of pearly beaches, tangled jungles, peaceful temples and sincere locals, a trip to Thailand from South Africa is a rite of passage for all travellers.

Positioned along the Indochinese Peninsula and dotted with castaway islands, Thailand is where where minds unfold and bodies unwind. Honeymooners, bargain hunters and adventurers love Thailand for its postcard-perfect beaches, labyrinthine markets, exotic nightlife and aromatic cuisine.

Savour street food in Bangkok, explore the ruins of Ayutthaya, and soak up the idyll of cerulean waters hopping from one island to another. Known as the "Land of Smiles", trips to Thailand from South Africa will leave you smiling.
