Think you know Thailand? Think again. The breathless bright-eyed cities, palm-fringed beaches, evergreen, every shade of green mountains, and other-worldly cuisine. Asia’s ultimate luxury destination - of course. But it’s not until you really experience the people of Thailand that you experience the real Thailand at all. Its essential, intrinsic nature. Kind, considerate, compassionate Thailand.
The land of smiles.
Luxury Immersive Holidays in THAILAND
The essence of Thailand is… escape - waking up to breakfast on your terrace, the jungle below. It’s the sand beneath your feet, a pristine reef. It’s the Gulf of Thailand, the Andaman coast.
It’s…, discovery - those hidden corners of this amazing country almost impossible to reach without local knowledge. The Thailand beyond traditional tourism.
And it’s immersion - the cultural, conversational, colloquial. It’s Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket - deep dives into the city, with your private guide navigating the tumult. The rural, ritual, undiscovered Thailand. The Thailand that most people have no idea even exists.
With ETG, we’ll help you discover the essential Thailand
From the best of the best hotels in Thailand, to the most amazing cultural experiences. And because we create immersive holidays that give back, every experience exists to connect you with the people and places you visit, and leave every destination better for your visit.
Handmade holidays of a lifetime. Smiles all round.

Top Thailand Holiday Destinations
Bangkok - a city of everything, all at once, overspilling with the sights, sounds and scents of Southeast Asia. But more than just the famous night bazaars, rooftop bars, street markets and hawker stalls of Chiang Mai and Phuket, what about discovering the secret Thailand? The hidden temples, hot springs and hill tribes of mountainous Chiang Dao to the north, undiscovered Isan to the east or Khao Sok’s virgin rainforest, even older and more diverse than the Amazon.
Or what about Thailand’s islands in the Gulf and Andaman Sea that host some of Asia’s coolest, classiest, luxury beach escapes so you can take in Thailand’s incredible natural beauty at your own leisurely pace.
Fresh, zesty and hot, "real deal" Thai food is infinitely better than anything you've tasted in the UK.
Striking temples and vibrant festivals keep the influence of Buddhism strong in Thailand.
Sail among limestone karsts off the southern coast - an otherworldly experience.
DISCOVER THE ESSENCE OF THAILAND
The more you discover about Thailand, the more you realise how little you knew. Every experience is a lesson. Whether simply relaxing on a remote island, diving in and out of frenzied alleyways or chatting with a village shopkeeper up in the rural north, the more you embrace the Thai experience - the more the experience gives you. Which is exactly how it should be.
Some of our favourite things to do? You can’t beat a good night market or a food tour on foot. Island hopping boat trips are a joy, as are guided countryside walks. Homestays are incredible.
Whatever holiday you choose you’ll always enjoy a rich, immersive and interactive Thailand experience - up close and personal. And because we’re meticulous in only working with the best hotels in Thailand, you can be sure your accommodation is always right for you.
