Known for its breathtaking beaches, energetic cities and rich culture, Thailand is a must-visit destination for many people this year. Visiting Thailand for your holiday can often mean big packages at great, affordable prices.
Once you reach your destination, there’ll be no doubt as to why so many people want to visit this part of the world.
Where to Stay in Thailand
Here are just a few ideas on where you can stay I found on this page:
- Bangkok: The capital of Thailand is a busy, populated city with tons of opportunities for some of the best dining available. Spend at least a couple of days staying in the city and don’t miss a visit to the Chao Praya River, located in the center of Bangkok.
- Phuket: If lounging on the beach is at the top of your vacation “To Do” list, then Phuket is the place for you. Also, the area has a lot of luxury hotels to choose from as well as family resorts. Head to Coral Island, also called Ko Hae, for a day-long excursion.
- Chiang Mai: For a healthy dose of culture, visit Chiang Mai, which is also where you can access the northern jungles.
- Beaches: For a true beach vacation, check out Ko Samuu, Ko Phi Phi and Ko Phagn Nagn. You can find all types of lodging near these beaches, from campsites to luxury hotels.
Things To Do
- Try spicy Thai food from the street vendors in Bangkok.
- Across the country, the Vegetarian Festival is held during the month of September.
- Check out the Umbrella Festival in January in Chiang Mai.
- The Koh Samui Yacht Regatta is held from May through June.
- The Temple of the Reclining Buddha, also called Wat Pho Temple, has a Buddha that’s 150 feet tall. There are additional smaller temples to explore in the same area. Be prepared for a small admission fee.
- The national sport of Thailand is Muay Thai and participants take it very seriously. Don’t pass up your chances to see a true Muay Thai fight at Rajadamnern Stadium.
- The Damnoen Saduak Floating Marketing takes up 50 kilometers of the river. The market literally floats in the center of Bangkok. Head there to pick up fresh flowers, food and spices. Since you’re in the area, check out the neighboring towns. Contact a boat company to explore the area the Bangkok way.
- Once you get home, you may miss all of the delectable meals you had in Thailand. Don’t end your vacation without taking a Thai cooking class so that you can take those delicious tastes back with you. As part of the class, you’ll make a trip to the market for groceries and then learn to cook popular Thai dishes.
- The Siam Niramit theater in Bangkok has shows just about every day. Shows include light displays and live music, among other types of entertainment. The theater also has a model of a village in Thailand.
