Precious few of these places remain on the planet, yet they are fundamental to our well-being and survival."

Review: New Lonely Planet Thailand travel guide


Review: New Lonely Planet Thailand travel guide

Click HERE to buy the travel book & visit the Lonely Planet shop.

Packed full of trustworthy and up-to-date advice, check out the new Lonely Planet Thailand travel guide. Friendly and fun-loving, cultured and historic, Thailand radiates a golden hue, from its glittering temples and tropical beaches through to the ever-comforting Thai smile. Learn to cook authentic Thai dishes in Chiang Mai; rock-climb the limestone karsts (or watch from the sugar-white beaches) of Railay; trek through dense jungle and stay in tree-top bungalows in Kanchanaburi - all with your trusted travel companion.

Lonely Planet writer Austin Bush explains why he loves Thailand: "I'm tempted to say that the thing I love most about Thailand is the food. But then I'm reminded of that feeling of freedom when on a motorcycle trip upcountry. And of the sensory overload of a busy morning market or a wild night out in Bangkok. And of encounters with history and culture, the new and the old, at just about every turn. Did I mention the white-sand beaches, jungles, ancient ruins and Buddhist temples? Indeed, the food satisfies, but on second thought Thailand offers so much more."

1. Bangkok.

2. Chiang Mai.
3. Railay.

The added bonus with the GoT tour is that you are also given the chance to learn about the history of the region in mind blowing locations and discover the local way of life first hand. 

“Our experienced guide was a background actor in the series,” said local expert Sofija Đorđević, “so you will hear some intriguing facts from behind the scenes! You will see the stunning scenery that was featured as the backdrop in the HBO series and get to know the fictional city of King's Landing.”

During the tour you will explore the medieval walls of Trogir and the Diocletian’s Palace in Split, visit King's Landing palace gardens and climb to the top of Fort Lovrijenac in order to see King's Landing from above.
