The land of smiles as fondly called by many is truly welcoming despite the noisy smelly nature of some places. Culture shock may or may not hit you once you’ve landed, but then you’ve come to experience something different. Here are a few travel tips.
When to visit
October to April is usually the peak season in Thailand. Summers are very hot and often are subject to little summer rain now and then. You could also come in time to observe festivals which take place from October to November.
Forgot something? Go shopping
Forgotten to pack in your favourite top? That’s too bad, but what’s brilliant is that you can go shopping for clothes from your favourite brands and for better prices too! 7-11 is the one stop shop to visit for basic items you might need.
Taxis are quite alright to take to get around in the city. However, it would be advisable to agree on a price before you get into the vehicle. In the south, the taxis are a bit different. These are called songthaews. Tuk-tuk rides too may prove to be a good experience.
Finding your lodging
There are plenty of luxury hotels in Thailand. Hotel offers are available almost all year round at properties such as those by Chatrium Hotels & Residences. Homestays and boutique hotels are available too. Thailand can fit any budget so why not give it a try?
