A major part of Thailand's culture is its food, with the best food often found from the vendors that line the streets and even the rivers. Watch as delicious meals are created for you in front of your eyes, with the distinctive mix of sweet, spicy, sour, bitter and salty tastes coming together to form one unique flavour.
There is an abundance of distinctive temples, or wats, which pepper Thailand's landscape along with glittering palaces, monasteries and museums. In the north of the country you can discover another side to Thailand's culture by visiting the hill tribes, who welcome tourists to camp with them.
Lively Thailand is host to many festivals throughout the year, with Songkran Festival the biggest celebration that takes place every April. It's Thailand's New Year celebration and officially marks the beginning of summer.
A unique blend of huge shopping malls, floating markets and riverside shopping gives you plenty of choice when it comes to picking up a bargain. Grab some colourful Thai silk, stock up on designer handbags, or get some of the freshest fruit you'll ever eat, from Bangkok's floating market.
