Visit pagodas and palaces; go jungle trekking in rich rainforest. Dive in coral-filled waters. Laze on long sandy beaches. Go clubbing in one of South East Asia's most vibrant cities. From the misty mountains and ancient ruins of the north, to the turquoise seas and white-sand beaches of the south, Thailand offers a wide choice of activities - as well as ample scope for unwinding. Bangkok, the buzzing capital, boasts a throbbing nightlife as well as glorious temples and a range of entertainments from classical dancing to Thai boxing. The northern city of Chiang Mai, featuring bustling markets and an amazing array of more than 300 wats (temple-monasteries), is the gateway to trekking areas. Phuket island in the Indian Ocean makes a good base for island hopping. Thailand's hostels are well placed for enjoying the beaches and the mountainous majesty of this colourful country.
