Home to palm-fringed beaches, ornate temples, dense jungle and a host of delicious food, Thailand is rich in things to see and do. Navigate through Bangkok’s organised chaos and observe how life slows in the city’s temples, or head north to Chiang Mai and experience a typical day in the life of a Thai family. Escaping the cities allows you to adopt a slower pace of life. Float down the River Kwai on a colonial-style cruise boat or take a trip from Koh Samui to Koh Wao in search of sheer limestone cliffs, hidden caves and untouched beaches.
