Top tips for Thailand
- Bangkok isn’t just the gateway to Thailand, there are so many things to see and do it is worth spending a few days here. The Grand Palace and Temple of the Dawn are just a couple of examples.
- Eat food from the street stalls. It is cheap and tasty. In a lot of places you can find delicious options on the street 24 hours a day.
- Temples – there are so many to see from the magnificent to miniature. Don’t try to cram them all in. Narrow it down, for example Wat Pho and Wat Phra Kaew.
- Visiting an open market is a must and often where you will find the best prices and best goods. Some of the best markets are Chatuchak Weekend market, the floating market and the night market in Chiang Mai.
- Beaches – Thailand has some stunning white sand beaches. Lamai beach in Koh Samui, Freedom beach in Patong and Railey beach are some of the best beaches in Thailand.
- Avoid the rainy season, although it’s not constant rain there are usually heavy rain downpours most afternoons/nights. The best time to travel is November to February when humidity and temperatures aren’t so high.
- Learn to cook authentic Thai food. If you are a fan of Thai food why not learn to cook it yourself and impress your friends and family when you get home.
- If travelling with children, Phuket has loads to keep the whole family entertained. From stunning beaches to water parks and activities like paddle boating, horseback riding and mountain bikes.
