"Just arrived back in York, and I just wanted to to thank you for organising such a wonderful trip. Literally everything was perfect. The choice of hotels was beyond expectation, and they just got better and better. The flights were all exactly on time and well organised. We've totally falling in love with Thailand and its people. Delightful and genuine. Many thanks again - it really was paradise." Christine & John Stone

It's a tale of two cities complemented by a textbook beach break in this tempting Thai combination. Immerse yourself in the chaos of Bangkok before heading north to the charmingly traditional Chiang Mai, then grab your swimwear and travel to Phuket, the original Thai beach resort.

Bangkok and Chiang Mai are two of the most popular cities in Thailand, each displaying a rich cultural heritage and bold spirituality. Explore the mazy streets of Bangkok and its delicious delicacies, perhaps indulging yourself at one of the shiny mega-malls. Chiang Mai nestles in the hills of the north, a glorious city with the feel of a traditional village. Home to hundreds of stunning temples, it's Thailand's spiritual capital. Cap off your jam-packed itinerary with a lazy sojourn on the island of Phuket. Defined by its miles of gorgeous sands, it's easy to see why Phuket is many travellers' go-to beach break.

Bangkok has a tropical monsoon climate and the highest average temperature of any city in the world. Temperatures in Bangkok regularly peak above 30°C throughout the year. The period between November and February is the driest period in Bangkok; September is the wettest month on average. The humidity levels also remain high during this period. The climate in Bangkok is at its hottest from March to August. If you visit between May and October expect short spells of rainy weather, with frequent afternoon showers, monsoons and spells of thunder at times. Chiang Mai has a very hot climate, with temperatures close to and above 30°C almost all year round. There are three main seasons - from the end of October through to February it is the 'cool' season, but temperatures still remain above 20°C on average. This is the most preferable time to visit the city, as the heat will not be overwhelming when exploring the region. The temperature then peaks sharply from March to May, and days are long and sunny during this period. From June on to late October you should expect frequent rain and thunder showers, although temperatures remain high. Phuket has a tropical monsoonal climate, with the rainy season beginning earlier than in northern Thailand, starting in May but generally ending late October. Apart from the period between mid-September and mid-October when the rain falls steadily, most monsoon days are rain-free save for showers in the afternoon. The best months to visit Phuket are from November to February, when temperatures are comfortable, skies are clear and blue and humidity is low. This is the high season, with the majority of visitors coming over for the Christmas and New Year period.
