People planning flights to Thailand will be able to travel cheaply across the region, according to Lonely Planet.

A recent study from the Post Office showed that the Thai baht has strengthened against the UK pound. However, the guide book organisation believes that this will not reduce the bargain travel options on offer to Brits.

Tom Hall, travel editor at Lonely Planet, explained both Malaysia and Thailand are still ideal holiday hotspots.

“Those destinations will continue to attract a lot of visitors because of good value air links, excellent food and drink, a warm friendly welcome and they are pretty safe places to go to,” he said.

Mr Hall also explained that there has been a rise in travellers taking long-haul flights for short holiday breaks, with many tourists not deterred by the length of the flight “if they are going to be somewhere beautiful and sunny at the end of it”.
