Things to do in Thailand
Our guide to the best activities and attractions in Thailand
Thailand is one of the best all-round destinations for a holiday packed full of experiences and attractions. In the south, a tropical coastline offers snorkelling, diving and blissful days on the beach doing absolutely nothing. In Bangkok, a metropolis of street food, tuk-tuks and elaborate temples awaits. We have some great ideas for things to do in Thailand, as well as bookable excursions that can be organised through your Personal Travel Expert or arranged locally.
