3. Scenic islands
Thailand is home to many outstanding islands. You need to see them for yourself to experience the true views. Photos really don’t do them justice.
Get some comfy shoes on and go trekking and exploring around as many islands as you possibly can during your stay. Or push the boat out and hire a canoe. Who knows where you will end up, but that is the fun of it!
Whilst you are there consider learning about the fascinating culture. There is no better way to do this than taking a trip to one of the temples. But make sure you dress appropriately, don’t forget that temples are a place of worship.
With over 40,000 Buddhist temples located across Thailand you are sure to come across one on your travels.
If you are a big shopper you will enjoy the choice of clothes and gifts available from the local shops and markets. Not only is everything cheap but you can find exciting products that you probably wouldn’t find back home.
Some of the markets are also located on water! Some of the most popular floating markets are Amphawa, Tha Kha and Bang Nam. Make sure you give them a visit.
6. Vibrant city nightlife
Thailand’s city nightlife is definitely unique and is one of the main reasons why people visit. From sky-high cocktails, clubs, live music, theatrical shows and after dark shopping you will never not find something to do whilst you are there. It is known that once the sun sets the locals wake up and the city becomes alive, so you can imagine what to expect.
Thailand’s well known Khao Yai National Park is definitely worth a trip! Whilst you are there you might come across wild elephants, tigers, boars, gibbons and many more exotic animals.
Take a dip in the sea and swim with the unusual fish and turtles that live there! Even better there are beaches filled with monkeys!!
You can expect to see warm weather and mostly clear days when you visit Thailand. Their seasons are quite similar to ours, hot, cool and rainy.
The best time to visit Thailand is from November to February, also known as the ‘cool season’ where the temperature can reach 18-32 degrees during the day. However early morning and nights can be quite chilly. Try to avoid April as it is the hottest month!
9. Cheap travel
Once you are in the country you will find it easy and also cheap to get around Thailand. You can find a plane ticket from Bangkok to Phuket for as little as £75 using one of the local airlines like Bangkok airways.
If you are in the city and want a tour jump on a Tuk Tuk, it’s a great way to see everything that you want to.
10. Luxury hotels
If you are looking for luxury you are sure to find it within Thailand’s hotels. One to look out for is Banyan Tree Samui, which overlooks the sea and is hidden in the jungle of a private bay in Lamai.
