Fly and discover Thailand, one of the world’s most exciting travel destinations

Thailand is simply an incredible country with a whole world of culture to be explored. Whether you're going for two weeks, or two months there are packages to suit and with a high emphasis on service quality present in most areas, you'll find the stress taken out of your trip.

Although many people may associate travelling around Thailand with roughing it in youth hostels, exploring the region can still be done in luxury. Thailand is home to some of the world's most magnificent hotels, with stunning examples such The Peninsula and Lebua at State Tower in Bangkok.

Asia overall is one of the top predicted growth destinations for 2008, with editor Alyson Cook citing Thailand as a particularly exciting country. She explained that it is becoming "very high on the luxury travellers' list" with more boutique hotels and spas, rather than the traditional backpacker market that previously dominated the region.

The Five Star Alliance release yearly lists of the best, high quality hotels in the world and recently included the Shangri-La in Bangkok, which is described as having "lush gardens, river views and a signature spa ...[which] offers guests the warmth of the Thai capital amid the serenity of a tropical retreat."

Deciding to visit Thailand can be a daunting experience, and it's obviously impossible to begin to cover everything in one trip. Start by deciding which area interests you the most and allow yourself enough time to enjoy the region properly and don't forget: you can always come back again!

Travelling around should also be made part of the holiday experience. For example, a cruise could be a fantastic way to experience the stunning coastline of Thailand. Train is also a fabulous option, with famed examples such as the Orient-Express taking travellers through south-east Asia, from Bangkok to Singapore. This well-known train is basically a moving hotel, with breakfast brought to your personal compartment each morning and optional coach trips on the way to special places of interest, such as the Penang region.

Cars are only practical for short trips - but short flights between destinations will save time and help you make the most of precious holiday hours. Flights to Bangkok are also competitively priced and have contributed to the countries roaring tourist trade.

However be aware that if you want to go to Thailand you will require immunisations, so seek advice from your doctor about what's needed.
