Begin with Thailand's capital, where gilded palaces and ornate Buddhist temples fight for space alongside ancient markets and 21st-century malls. Then, swap city streets for a white-sands beach as you head south to Koh Phangan. Once known more for its full-moon parties than its luxury resorts, today the island is a somewhat different proposition, attested to by the Thai-inspired elegance of your exclusive beachfront retreat; it's a luxurious launchpad to secluded bays, pristine coral reefs and pretty inland waterfalls. Lastly, a short boat hop will bring you across the Gulf of Thailand to the gently swaying palms and emerald seas of neighbouring Koh Samui for a stay at a luxurious Belmond hotel.
