Thailand Heritage

Why Thailand?

It would be difficult to sum up Thailand’s many culinary offerings, cultural icons, and adventures, but it’s safe to say that there is truly something new, unique, and authentic for everyone here. Jaw-droppingly beautiful beaches in Southern Thailand compete with the ultra-modern malls and sightseeing in Bangkok, catering for both beach-floppers and avid shoppers while true connoisseurs of history, culture and cuisine will find paradise in Thailand’s Northern cities and the serene Golden Triangle.

Capital: Bangkok

Bangkok, “The City of Angels”, is an enigmatic wonder filled with delightful contrasts. A place of fascinating history where golden, elaborate temples abound, set against a bustling, modern cityscape. There is an endless list of things to see and do here, and travelers will be surprised at every bend and turn. Fantastic shopping options (from elegant malls to busy market stalls that sell charming souvenirs), an eclectic burgeoning art scene, and a feast of culinary choices (both world-renowned international restaurants and exciting local street food) are just the start of what awaits visitors to the unconventional city.
