Northeast Thailand

Sample classic I-san cuisine in Ubon Ratchathani, enjoy the Mekong scenery in Mukdahan and the whacky sculpture gardens in Nong Khai. Experience the outrageous Rocket Festival in Yasothon and of course, the Elephant Round-up in Surin.

Eastern Thailand

Choose from Thailand's bounty of eastern islands -- close to Bangkok Ko Samet, Thailand's elephant island Ko Chang, little known Ko Mak and the lovely off-the-beaten-track Ko Kut.

Southern Thailand

Thailand's beach paradise. Head to the east coast to relax with the family on Ko Samui, party on Ko Pha Ngan and dive on Ko Tao. Then head to the west coast for Phuket, the cliffs of Railay Bay, the low-key Ko Lanta, rapidly rebuilding Ko Phi Phi and a bevvy of island getaways off Trang.
