11 days, 5-star from $9,395

Experience the beauty of Thailand by visiting some of the most beautiful destinations in the country – the gold-plated Reclining Buddha, the temple-rich Chiang Mai, and the pristine beaches of Koh Samui. From bustling cities to ancient towns, peaceful waterfront locations and luxurious resorts where you can forget all daily troubles, Thailand promises to be a treat for the senses and to soothe your body and soul.

Thailand at a Glance

Thailand is one of the most alluring countries in Southeast Asia with a fascinating history, beautiful architecture, and even more stunning nature. Notably, it’s also a very gay-friendly destination. Gay pride in Thailand is always a highly celebrated event, and in the bigger cities, you’ll find ample LGBT-friendly nightlife and establishments. While Thailand has the highest percentage of transsexuals in the world, you should always practice caution since petty crime and tourist robbing are not uncommon. The country is bursting with lavish landscapes ranging from some of the world’s most pristine beaches and epic limestone formations to thriving jungles with unbelievable wildlife. The best time to visit is during the dry season, which ranges from November to early April. The temperatures will still be relatively high, but with less humidity, it will be just perfect.
