Don’t easily dismiss Thailand as just a spot on the tired backpacker tour. There are plenty of luxury spots to hide out at away from the full moon parties, and enjoy all there is on offer, including over 1,500 miles of coastline, some of the friendliest locals and amazing food. Be prepared to try some food from street vendors, though, as it can be some of the freshest and tastiest available.

But as travel experts will remind you, overstaying your visa is a serious offence in Thailand, and it is mandatory to take out travel insurance. So make sure you plan ahead.
