From idyllic beaches with turquoise seas and white sands to bustling cities sporting exotic markets and a vibrant, colourful nightlife. Thailand has become one of the most popular tourist destinations for the adventurous and young at heart.
Thailands tourist industry has boomed, helped by Hollywood’s (Man with the Golden Gun, Bridge over River Kwai and The Beach). Numerous large and luxurious resorts have been developed. Yet, for those with a smaller budget, many cheap, comfortable and more basic accommodation options are still readily available.
The size and geographical diversity of the country provides for a variety of activities: snorkelling, diving and a host of watersports. While inland enthusiasts can trek into the mountains or cycle along the flat river areas of the northeast. Bustling, crowded cities like Bangkok display the wilder urban side of Thailand, ensuring the country has something to offer everyone.
There are places to visit too numerous to mention them all. Here are a few;
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.
The Royal Grand Palace in Bangkok.
The Royal Barges Museum which displays the royal barges one of which dates back to 1357.
Jim Thompson’s House, the American Silk entrepreneur largely responsible for the current popularity of Thai Silk today.
The climate is such that it experiences high temperatures and humidity levels throughout the year. The hottest months are between March and May, and monsoon season runs from June to October. In September and October much of the country suffers from flooding, particularly in the north, northeastern and central regions. The cool season is the best time to visit Thailand, running from November to February. Temperatures are fairly consistent throughout the year, especially in southern regions, ranging between 74°F (23°C) and 86°F (30°C).
