Take a tour of the many serene islands and idyllic beaches that make up Thailand; Ko Pha-ngan, Koh Samui, Koh Tao, Koh Phi Phi and many more enchant visitors with their turquoise waters, inviting you to dive or snorkel in their depths. Hop into a Tuk-tuk and be chaperoned through the busy streets, wander the length of Bangkok's overwhelmingly energetic and colourful markets such as Chatuchak Weekend Market that covers over 35-acres, discover the illustriously memorable floating markets, offering local dishes, produce and flowers. Enjoy the dazzling sunrises and sunsets that illuminate the architecturally fascinating Buddhist temples ubiquitous in Thailand and become lost in the heart and soul of The Land of Smiles.

Thailand's diverse landscape is a sweet visionary treat for many a visitor. Its most popular island, Phuket, is home to some of the world's finest hotels and its own beautiful array of beaches: Kata, Patong, Surin and Karon. If you're more of an adrenaline seeker, go diving with whale sharks off Ko Tao or the Similan Islands, offering some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling experiences in Thailand. Retreat to the north for beautifully encompassing forests, fields and villages that synergise with the mountainous backdrops. Be bedazzled by gleaming temples and golden Buddhas, and join the religious devotion of Buddha, through meditation retreats at Chiang Mai and cave shrines in Kanchanaburi and Phetchaburi.

Chatuchak Weekend Market is a must visit for travellers, if not for the street food and market deals, it's worth it for the incredibly lively atmosphere. Barter with the market sellers and hear the distant sounds of a Tuk tuk as they drop visitors to and from the market. Switch the pace and discover that Thailand has plenty of activities designed to soothe the mind; get away from the bustling markets and take part in an island yoga class within Koh Yao Noi's dedicated retreat, and let the sound of nature envelop your mind and soul.

Whether it's hiking through the canyons of Pai, relaxing by the turquoise shores of Patong beach or the Phi Phi Islands, or waiting for that Instagram-worthy shot of The Temple of Dawn, indulgent Thai food can be discovered anywhere. Opt for traditional dishes of pad thai and spicy green curry, or escape your comfort zone for local delicacies such as fried grasshoppers and spicy locusts. If you're feeling courageous, try the delicacy of Goong Ten, a mouthful of live shrimp, squeamish for some, but extremely popular with the locals.
