2 nts Lancaster Bangkok, Bangkok

Deluxe room with breakfast

Fascinating, intoxicating and chaotic, Bangkok deserves at least 48 hours to experience its temples, palaces, markets, malls and street food.

Undoubtedly the city’s most famous landmark is the dazzling gold-spired Grand Palace complex, formerly the Thai royal family’s residence but now used for ceremonial events. Other notable temples include exquisite Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) and Wat Pho, home to the gigantic Reclining Buddha.

The Chao Phraya River adds zest to the city landscape with its backdrop of temples and hotels. It’s a constant hive of activity with water taxis and longtail speedboats whizzing along, or heavily laden barges chugging sedately upstream. A network of criss-crossing canals (klongs) lead off the river and trickle past precariously perched houses, floating villages and markets.

On land, the skytrain and subway are your best way to get around, although no visit would be complete without a hair-raising tuk-tuk ride.

Whether you’re looking to snag a bargain or splurge on designer labels, shopping in Bangkok is a day and night activity not to be missed. Top spots include MBK Centre, CentralWorld, The Emporium, Siam Paragon, Chatuchak Market, Asiatique the Riverfront and Chinatown. In addition, tours to floating markets just outside the city are also recommended.

Another big draw is the food, with over 50,000 places to eat. From humble street stalls with their aromatic aromas to classy fine dining restaurants, there’s always tasty treats on the menu.Nightlife in Bangkok has evolved over recent years with the emphasis now firmly on swanky rooftop bars with panoramic views, chic nightclubs and lively jazz lounges as well as microbreweries and hip cocktail bars.

Escape the fast pace of city life for the province of Kanchanaburi, 150 miles west of Bangkok, for emotive history tropical scenery and soft adventures.

Kanchanaburi is famed for its World War II landmarks - the Bridge over the River Kwai and the Death Railway, which was forcibly built by Allied prisoners and Asian labourers. Although partially destroyed from bombing in 1945, the black iron bridge was rebuilt and is a poignant reminder of WW2 atrocities. Today, the Death Railway is one of the world's most scenic rail routes with tracks enclosed by verdant forests, opening out onto a sheer cliff and running alongside the River Kwai.

The excellent Thailand-Burma Railway Centre highlights the POW'S plight, whilst the immaculately kept cemetery, the final resting place of over 10,000 prisoners of war, provides a quiet reflective sanctuary.

Follow the memorial trail into Hellfire Pass through spectacular countryside to the original rail bed. Prisoners working on this infamous cutting endured brutal conditions and the on-site Memorial Museum tells their story.

History aside, the province boasts a magnificent landscape of dense jungles, rivers and cascading waterfalls. Bamboo rafting, trekking and cycling are all popular activities for those not content to sit and soak up the riverside peace and beauty.

Phuket sits on Thailand's west coast and is the country's best known and largest island. Its wide appeal is thanks to a mix of strikingly handsome beaches, majestic mountains and rainforests which intermingle with second to none dining, shopping and entertainment.

Lively Patong is the island's main resort and with a colourful nightlife, wide choice of activities, eateries and shopping options, it suits those seeking a place to party and play. South of Patong is slightly quieter Karon, known for its long beach, excellent snorkelling and good selection of shops and eateries; while on the sheltered south east coast is tranquil Panwa Bay.

Just a few minutes south of Karon Beach are the palm-lined white sands and clear waters of Kata Beach. It’s a popular choice for families and those seeking a good selection of restaurants, bars and shops. From May to October, Kata is also popular with surfers who flock here to catch the waves.

Further up the west coast is Bang Tao Bay, a four mile stretch of beach home to some of Phuket's most luxurious resorts, including those within the Laguna Phuket Resort which are clustered around a series of inland lagoons. There is a small shopping mall within the resort, an 18-hole golf course and the nearby village of Cherng Talay has a variety of good value restaurants.

Clearly the palm-fringed beaches are the main attraction, however venture away from the soft sands and you'll find plenty to explore including the recently constructed Big Buddha, Thalang National Museum, Ton Sai Waterfall and ornate Wat Chalong - one of Phuket's most important temples. Take a stroll around Old Phuket Town and you'll discover turn-of-the-century Sino-Portuguese architecture and funky shops while families may enjoy Phuket Aquarium, Cable Jungle Adventure or Phuket FantaSea Show.

Phuket is also the gateway to many smaller islands that are well worth exploring; while a must-see is stunning Phang Nga Bay with its sheer limestone outcrops jutting vertically from the emerald-green water. Choose from a leisurely cruise or perhaps enjoy a closer look by joining a guided sea kayak tour.

The island also offers a great variety of shopping, from bustling open-air food markets, noisy night markets, to boutiques and department stores. Visiting one of the many markets offers a glimpse of local life and popular markets include Phuket Weekend Market in Phuket Town, Banzaan Market in Patong Beach and the Night Market of Old Phuket Town. Karon Shopping Plaza has a wide range of souvenirs and clothing, Plaza Surin offers boutique-style shopping and Premium Outlets Phuket has genuine designer goods at significant discounts.

It really is impossible to go hungry in Phuket as the number and diverse array of restaurants is quite astounding, although the larger resorts do offer more choice particularly when it comes to international cuisines. As you might expect from an island, seafood is a speciality and features widely in restaurants and food stalls all over Phuket.
