THAILAND is the ultimate winter sun destination.

Great beaches, wildlife, food, culture, weather and people mean that it ticks all of the boxes for a memorable holiday.

The best time to visit Thailand is between November and early April, as temperatures average between 32 and 36C, and there are up to nine hours of sunshine every day.

To make it even more appealing, some of Asia's most stunning beaches are in Thailand. There's accommodation for every budget, from luxury spa resorts to thatched beach huts and hotels.

If you'd like to stay close to the lively capital of Bangkok, Pattaya and Ko Chang are relatively near the city and feature incredible white sands and resorts.

If you're planning a family holiday, Pattaya is filled with family-friendly resorts and activities.
