An enchanting Buddhist kingdom with warm and friendly people, Thailand is an exotic country of timeless tradition, ancient rituals and gracious customs. Bangkok is a city of infinite variety, a heady combination of chaotic metropolis and serene Buddhist beauty whilst the heart of the country is home to the spectacular cultural sites of Ayutthaya and ancient Sukhothai. The far north gives way to sleepy rural villages largely populated by colourful hill tribes, the bustling hill town of Chiang Mai, remnants of the ancient Khmer Empire and the dramatic countryside of the Golden Triangle which borders Laos and Burma. Southern Thailand is a land of beaches and islands where the warm clear blue waters of Koh Lanta, Krabi, Koh Samet, Khao Lak and Phuket offer the perfect tropical retreat. Pettitts have led the way in designing tailor-made holidays and tours to Thailand for over 25 years.
