In addition to being able to take advantage of the island's beautiful beaches, tourists will also have the chance to head out on shopping excursions that allow them to hunt out some real bargains.

From July 1st until August 31st many of the country's retailers will offer discounts of up to 50 per cent across a host of products and services as part of the Amazing Thailand Grand Sale.

Most malls and shops in Thailand's biggest tourist centres will be taking part in the annual event.

People who are on a shopping mission should look out for the Amazing Thailand Grand Sale signs in windows if they want to find all the outlets offering deals.

Anyone staying in hotels in Thailand will be able to find participating stores in locations such as Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Pattaya and Hat Yai - which is on the east coast of the country, south of Koh Samui.
