More than just a destination, Thailand is a Kingdom, with opulent royal palaces, ancient ruins and ornate temples. Formerly named Siam, it has a genuine soul - partly because it’s the only Southeast Asian nation to never be colonized, and partly because it is the longest-reigning monarchy in Southeast Asia.
Its geographic fabric includes a myriad of textures: mystical rice paddies in fertile valleys; an expansive collection of white-sandy beaches circling over 400 palm-tree-lined islands; vast mountain ranges; and indigineous hill tribes. When combined, these tropical locations, colorful textiles and fragrant aromas will help to create memories that will last a lifetime.
Bangkok, the Kingdom’s capital city, can feel like a country all on its own. There are palaces and temples, shopping and nightlife, dining and the river, an expansive Chinatown, food stalls on every street corner, and enough open-air markets to please even the pickiest shoppers. Whether you begin or end here (or both), this is a city where the art of exploring is both an abstract and impressionist adventure not to be missed.
When your holiday combines some urban time in this “City of Angels” together with a few of the other contrasting destinations, your trip will be absolutely unforgettable!
