Thailand has captured the heart of many a traveller. Bustling Bangkok with its careering tuk tuks, scent-assaulting local markets and hedonistic nightlife is wedged between the traditional temples and hill tribe villages of the north and the chilled out beaches and jungles of the south. It offers an intoxicating mix of mayhem and sacredness, with glittering Buddhist temples sitting comfortably alongside swanky rooftop bars and mouth-wateringly-good street side food stalls. From haggling for bargains at a night market, to trekking through lush jungle, to indulging in a Thai massage, to exploring ancient ruins, to perfecting a curry at a cooking school, this South-East Asian jewel has something for everyone, whatever the budget.
