Are you in pursuit of warm, sandy beaches, island hopping and sweltering jungle treks? Or simply on a budget and in search of a destination rich in affordable adventures. No matter what kind of experience you’re seeking, Thailand has it all.
This Article reveal why you should travel to Thailand in “Visiting Thailand: A beginner’s travel guide”. It’s no secret that Thailand is achingly beautiful, but you likely knew that already. So instead, let us begin by explaining what makes a perfect Thailand-bound traveller.
While you are only required to be as fit as the activities you wish to take part in, you should thrive in hot to extremely humid weather, be a confident swimmer so as not to miss out on Thailand’s turquoise waters, and be ready to dive, trek, tuk-tuk, taste, kayak, climb, sail and even kick box your way across the country! Be sure to have saved up at least 10-15 vacation days to experience the country at an enjoyable pace, without rushing.
Don’t forget to learn a few key phrases in Thai to make your travels easier but don’t worry too much as English is widely spoken. And while you can visit Thailand all year round, the best time to travel there is between November and early April when rainfall is limited and temperatures are manageable. So your tour is booked, your bags are packed and you secured a great deal on that flight into Bangkok. It’s time to hit the bustling streets and back roads of this great Southeast Asian gem!
Begin by visiting Bangkok’s Grand Palace, arguably the city’s most famous landmark and the spiritual heart of the Thai Kingdom. You’ll surely be left in awe by the palace complex’s impressive and intricate buildings. And don’t forget a visit to the spectacular Wat Arun which sits dazzlingly on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River. Or perhaps visit Wat Pho and see the impressive reclining Buddha before carrying on to the temple, Wat Ratchanatdaram, whose design is said to derive from the metal temples built in Sri Lanka and India over 2000 years ago. Consider timing your visit for nightfall, as the temple truly stuns in the dark. Reward yourself for days well spent by visitin gone of the city’s many rooftop bars and unwind with local brews while over looking the feverish scene that is Bangkok. And once you’ve sufficiently lost yourself in the chaos of the busy streets and back alleyway clubs you will be free to move onto Thailand’s dazzling countryside to experience blissful rejuvenation.
Begin in the north and pay a visit to the mountainous city of Chiang Mai, where you can first stroll past the hundreds of elaborate Buddhist temples, exploring the original capital of the Lanna Kingdom before venturing in to the Thai jungle for a journey like no other. Hike past unexpected waterfalls while enjoying the sounds of bubbling brooks as nature envelopes you. For truly unforgettable views you’ll wantto head to Chiang Rai, where you can explore the eclectic, starkly coloured Wat Rong Khun,an unconventional art exhibition to which admission is free. But the real views arrive when you trek in to the Thai highlands just outside of the city. Reach the top of Phu Chi Fa, a national forest park, and one of the country’s most famous viewpoints. Time your visit for dawn and allow yourself a quiet moment to overlook the sea of mist that hangs atop the never-ending hilltops. You won’t be disappointed. Next, head down south and take part in a little island hopping and swim or sail your way between famous and stunningly beautiful inlets.
Ride long-tail boats to Railey Beach in Thailand’s Krabi Province, famous for its sheer limestone cliffs and dense mangrove forests as wellas its hundreds of off shore islands, including the notable Phi Phi Islands. Next visit Ko Samui and sip on fresh coconuts before hiking along lush trails and cooling off in secluded waterfalls and natural pools. Finish off your adventure through Southern Thailand with a visit to the west coast of the Malay Peninsula and explore the Phang Nga Province, famous for its national parks and rock formations.
