How to get around

Getting to Thailand holiday homes

Thailand has various transportation options to travel by land, air or boat. The well-connected roads travel through provinces in Thailand, allowing you to use motorcoaches, taxis, hire cars, hire motorcycles, public bus or train and Tuk Tuk, a three-wheeled motorcycle that’s a Thai icon. The two long coastlines of Thailand connect with rivers and canals for boating, ferries or river cruises as transport throughout the area. Several airports throughout the country offer international, domestic and private plane charter flights to get into the country. Upon arrival, you can use the common road transport to get to and from your holiday rental and nearby destinations.

Food & drink 

Regional cuisine in Thailand

Thai cuisine varies by location and landscape, but all Thai dishes share an emphasis on light fare with aromatically strong ingredients and a hint of spice. In Bangkok, the influences of Teochew and Portuguese cultures afford a more delicate, upscale cuisine, and the rice plains, coconut milk and influences of the Dvaravati culture have a strong influence on Central Thai cuisine. In Northern Thai, the cuisine reflects the cooler valleys and forested mountains of the highlands, which includes a lot of fermented fish dishes. By comparison, Southern Thai enjoys the rich bounty of the tropical seas with Malay, Hainanese and Cantonese influences. The most iconic Thai dishes that every traveller should try on a Thailand holiday can be found in various restaurants and eateries throughout the country. Just visit a restaurant near your holiday rental and experience the eclectic flavours and distinctive food culture of Thailand.
