Explore the electric charm of Thailand

Nowhere captures the charms of Asia quite like Thailand and its people. It has extraordinary beach escapes, spa retreats and exclusive island resorts that belong in the movies. If luxuriating isn’t your thing, there are energising city breaks in Bangkok or the historic Chiang Mai, alive with cultural and culinary surprises. Idyllic jungles with waterfalls, rock pools and frangipane-scented valleys are begging to be explored. If you’re looking for the best hotels in Thailand, look no further.

Tipping etiquette
Tipping is not generally expected

Thailand has an efficient public transport system, or if you want to get behind the wheel, you can rent a car.

When To Go

Like most countries in Asia, the weather varies as much by region as by time of year. Most people travel to Thailand between November and February, when the weather is gloriously balmy and the festivals are in full throw. The quietest months are from April to October, when the heat gives ways to a refreshing evening shower and the landscape goes radiantly green.

Top Tip from SLH

Prepare to smile a lot, greet a lot and have your heart melted by the incredible warmth of the people.
