Thailand is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. From dazzling temples and night markets, to hill tribe treks and idyllic islands, this country has it all.
What initially drew Gary and me to Thailand was its culture and history. We were keen to explore the shining temples and crumbling ancient ruins, we were excited to see the colourfully-cloaked monks and smouldering incense. But what we found was so much more…
Although Thailand isn’t actually that big in size ( about double that of the UK ), there are so many things to see and discover that planning your two-week trip is difficult, and will most likely require a couple of sacrifices. Most professionals have a holiday allowance of about two weeks and you most certainly would be forgiven for assuming that this isn’t enough time to explore Thailand thoroughly. If your main goal is to relax, you might indeed want to spend the majority of your time on the islands.
However if like us, you want to take in as much of the country as possible in those two weeks, have as many experiences as you possibly could in said time-frame, then you have come to the right place.
The itinerary outlined below for a luxurious two-week vacation in Thailand takes in the classic sights as well as some more off the beaten track experiences and destinations.
