2 nts Century Park, Bangkok

Superior 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.

6 nts Ao Prao Resort, Koh Samet

Deluxe Hillside room with breakfast

This delightful island, just five miles off the eastern Gulf of Thailand, is a designated national park; in fact all visitors have to pay an entrance fee on arrival (approx. £5). Its fourteen small but dazzlingly white beaches are breathtakingly beautiful, lapped by invitingly green-blue water and many are shaded by coconut palms and cajeput (samet) trees.

Hat Sai Kaew (or Diamond Beach) is situated in the northeast and at 780 metres is the longest on the island and one of the main tourist areas. The only major west coast beach is Ao Prao, a scenic bay with a tranquil crescent of sand and calm, shallow waters; it's also renowned for the spectacular sunsets. On the southern tip is Ao Kiew where you'll find secluded sandy beaches and warm tropical waters.

Speedboat trips to pristine surrounding islands, including Koh Man Nai, Koh Talu and Koh Kudee, are a popular diversion from the inviting beach and give the opportunity for snorkelling around the colourful coral reefs. Kayaks and canoes are available to hire and are a perfect way to explore the picturesque coastline and remoter beaches. If you prefer to stay on land there is a coastal walk which takes in nine beaches along the east coast, and if you tire of walking, you can simply laze on the sands.

Koh Samet is not a shopping mecca with only convenience stores selling basic essentials along with a few shops near the piers in Ban Phe. Most hotels and resorts have their own restaurants serving a selection of Thai and international cuisine, but if you wish to try some local food head to Hat Sai Kaow, Ao Phai or Ao Hin Khok where you'll find lots of seafood options. Nightlife may be limited, but not totally absent; there are lively bars to be found along the beaches of Hat Sai Kaow and Ao Phai as well as a string of fire-dancing shows which can be quite a spectacle.

3 nts Centara West Bay Residences & Suites, Doha, Qatar

Standard Studio with breakfast

The small Gulf state of Qatar may be a deeply traditional country, but in the last 40 years, it has developed at breakneck speed, with shopping malls, five star hotels and football stadiums (in preparation for the 2022 World Cup) all springing up along the desert floor.

Yet amongst all the modern skyscrapers and expansive boulevards, Doha maintains its Arabic roots, particularly in the bustling alleys of Souq Waqif. In this maze of small shops there's a dazzling array of Middle Eastern merchandise from spices and seasonal delicacies to ornate jewellery, clothing and souvenirs. In addition, the souq has an eclectic mix of restaurants and cafes serving regional dishes and treats from Asia and North Africa, while music and cultural shows add to the ambience.

For a glimpse of Qatari heritage, visit the Falcon Souq where you can admire these revered birds; check out Al Koot Fort (Doha Fort) or head to the fabulous Museum of Islamic Art, which rises from its own purpose-built island and includes 14 centuries of the finest art and artefacts from across the Islamic world. At the purpose-built developments of Katara you'll find impressive theatres, galleries, performance venues, top restaurants and a well-maintained public beach.

Also not to be missed is the magnificent Doha Waterfront Promenade, which stretches four miles along Doha Bay and is where you'll find cafes and restaurants along with the dhow harbour, which evokes echoes of Qatar's great seafaring past.

Invitingly described as the 'Arabian Riviera' the Pearl-Qatar is a man-made island off the West Bay coast and has Mediterranean-style yacht marinas, internationally-renowned hotels with private beaches, luxury shopping at top named boutiques and dozens of restaurants serving every taste.

For something more thrilling, head to the desert for some dune bashing, or perhaps visit the impressive Khor Al Adaid or 'Inland Sea', a UNESCO recognised natural reserve with its own eco-system. This is one of the few places in the world where the sea encroaches deep into the heart of the desert and can only be reached across the rolling dunes. Another UNESCO World Heritage site can be found on Qatar's north-coast, namely the immaculately restored Al Zubarah Fort, which is one of the most extensive and best-preserved examples of an 18-19th century settlement in the region.
