Various Types of Holiday in Thailand

There are a million and one ways to spend your time on holiday and in this short article, we offer a few ideas for chilling in the Land of Smiles.


Digital nomads live by Airbnb and it does open up your accommodation options; there isn’t an easier way to set up holiday accommodation; check the reviews and you should be fine.

Wellness retreats

Pamper your body, mind and spirit and book a stay at the best wellness retreat Thailand has to offer; this type of vacation is growing in popularity and you go home refreshed, recharged and ready to take on the world! Detox, meditation and being surrounded by lush green vegetation make for a smart way to spend your downtime and who are we to disagree?

Hiking in the north

The active and adventurous can trek the Golden Triangle, experience amazing waterfalls, mountains and lush forests; Google ‘guided treks, Chiang Rai’ and you’ll get a list of guided tour operators. Spend a week in the north, a week in Bangkok and the rest on a tropical beach in the south of Thailand; the perfect way to divide your time in such a diverse country.

Luxury pool villa

Some of us want nothing more than a luxury pool villa; renting such a place pretty much gives you everything you need, rent a car and explore during the day, then come back to your exclusive pad for cocktails. Here are a few things you should know about a new country.


Fed up with beach life? Done the hiking in the north? If you would like to experience a different lifestyle, stay with a rice farmer in Sisaket or live with a fishing family in Surathani and see how they do things. Again, Google can take you to the website of a homestay tour operator and you can check for availability; be warned, things will be basic and you must expect a degree of discomfort.

Group tours

Ideal for those who do not wish to think about anything; a busy schedule will have you seeing many famous attractions and you won’t be able to deviate from the program. This type of holiday isn’t so popular today, as it limits your options; ideal for an elderly couple who want to see the sights.

Muay Thai training

Many young people decide to spend their annual holiday training Muay Thai at one of the top gyms; Bangkok and Phuket are the best places to find a top-rated gym where they accept students from novice to pro fighter level. Live in and meet lots of like-minded people while you are on your own fitness journey.

Buddhist retreat

If you are into the Buddhist way of life, you can immerse yourself in tranquil surroundings and learn from the masters. Lose all your emotional attachments and sit with yourself; things will become clear and you will return an enlightened being.

Whatever you choose, Thailand has a lot to offer the foreign visitor and we hope your experience is everything you hoped and some!
