Make holiday rental accommodation or a villa in Central Thailand your home away from home

The Central Plain of Thailand, or just Central Thailand as it is usually referred to, is the broad alluvial plain of the Chao Phraya River in the shadow of the beautiful Phetchabun Mountains. It is the most populated and important region of Thailand, and is home to the country’s capital, Bangkok. It is a region of rich culture, fine leisure options and great food, and there will always be a humblingly warm reception when you arrive at any holiday accommodation in Thailand. It is a diverse region of stunning scenery, from dark forests to sandy beaches, and huge waterfalls to deep caves, and there is such a magnificently rich culture and wealth of entertainment that it would be impossible to cover it all in such a rough guide, or indeed sample it all from rental accommodation or a holiday villa in Thailand.

Things to do on holiday in Central Thailand

Tourism to Thailand can be of many styles. The delightful culture means that an unforgettable holiday can be enjoyed simply shopping, sampling the restaurants and immersing yourself in the ancient lifestyles and staggering monuments, especially here in the ‘cultural and economic heart’ of Thailand.

Thailand has also risen as a magnificent place for golf holidays, as the sport has taken the country by storm. Many of the golf courses in Thailand have been designed by the biggest names in golf, including Jack Nicklaus and Nick Faldo, making the quality of the sporting facilities world class.

The coral rich seas of Thailand have made scuba diving holidays to Thailand hugely rewarding. There are a range of diving courses, safaris and individual dives suitable for all levels of experience. There are a huge range of activity sports on land and the internal waterways too, including extensive white water rafting, mountain biking, rock climbing in the north of the central region, canoeing and endless walking and hiking.

Places to holiday in Central Thailand

Bangkok has a very oriental flavour intermingled with the workings of a global city. It is one of the most exciting cities to go on holiday, and although there are a huge number of cheap holidays and budget holidays to Thailand, especially if you take a private holiday rental, it certainly looses nothing in enjoyment, leisure and culture.

North of Bangkok, Ayutthaya gives you a real understanding of traditional Thailand, with stunning temples open to visitors, and a range of beautifully presented museums.

The Chonburi province on Thailand’s eastern seaboard is awash with idyllic white sand beaches, coral islands, magnificent sporting facilities and a huge number of tourist attractions.

To the west of Bangkok, national parks, adventure sports and the eerie ‘Death Railway’ of WWII in Kanchanaburi can be found. This is an area of unspoilt natural resources, with forests, plains and hills forming the ideal location for outdoor activities to thrive.

Weather in Central Thailand

During the British winter, the holiday accommodation in Central Thailand is basking in temperatures in the mid 30’s (°C), with warm seas, perfect conditions for outdoor activities and exploring the beautiful countryside.

The apartment is larger than average with a well equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, massive lounge area with nice balcony overlooking a large swimming pool. There are 3 pools altogether, with plenty of sunbeds and water slides for children. There is direct access to the beach which looks quite clean considering its proximity to the main town. The gardens are particularly well looked after. Its also worth mentioning the management office were very helpful and the general impression is of a well established and maintained condo development. The apartment is located between the south end of town and the quieter Khao Takieb area. The only (minor) downside for us was the difficulty in crossing the road directly outside to catch a song thaw into town or to the market village - there are concrete barriers down the middle of this section of the road and you have to walk 2 or 3 hundred metres north or south to find a safe point to cross. However this would not bother you if you have a car or don't have small children in tow. Also the concrete barriers may be just a temporary feature. The owner was responsive and helpful and I would definitely recommend this apartment.

We had a very lazy holiday in Hua Hin as a family of 5 - the villa is very restful, very private and well equipped. There is also a large communal pool at the club-house, which offers some variation. The restaurants locally are very good and we chose to eat mainly out - which is both good value and less hassle! The local guide - Willie - introduced to us by John and Martin was very accommodating, very well organised and always there to help. Hua Hin itself is great - the markets particularly - although the local hotels tend to dominate any beach access, there is still plenty to get to. While Willie was very helpful, I recommend that if you would like to be active in the locale, then a car hire (both cheap and reliable) is a good idea. Scooter Hire is also possible (and for the active, John and Martin even supply push bikes!) but we suggest that you observe and decode local road rules before jumping in! All in all - a fantastic holiday with enough to do locally for a family or even a small group. We recommend this place heartily!

Danniie, his caretaker for the property was very responsive and easy to work with. Check-in was smooth, don't forget your copies of your passport. Even if you do, they can make copies for you. Both bedrooms were nice, with plenty of closet space. It was nice to have the tub in the master bathroom. The second bedroom indeed did not have a door, which was fine for our purposes. The waterfall shower on the guest bathroom was also nice, but the shower door needs to have a better seal to prevent water from getting out. However, the beds were too firm for our liking. The kitchen was fully stocked, which made us feel just like we were home. There were more than enough dishware, utensils, and glassware along with the kitchen appliances, which were all in clean, working condition. The washer did not come with instructions on how to use, and actually didn't work properly. The filtration system was broken, leaving a pool of water after the cycle. We found this out the hard way. Also, there really isn't any way to conveniently dry your clothes. There's a drying rack, but no outside area to set it at to dry your clothes faster. This property was very clean upon our arrival, and after the cleaning lady came a couple of days into our stay. It would have been nice if there were more towels and if they were replaced midway through our stay. We also liked that there are mini-grocery stores and restaurants right outside the Grand Lobby. It is also just a 3-5 minute walk to the Empire Tower where they have more restaurants and a Tops Supermarket. Thank you, Luca! We definitely enjoyed our stay.
