Why Thailand?

If Thailand is the ‘land of a thousand smiles’, then Bangkok, The City of Angels, is a city that will surely leave you beaming from arrival till departure. The city moves at a pace a thousand times faster than most others, so see the sights of the city like a local we’d recommend you whizz around the streets on an tuk tuk tour. You’ll find yourself amazed by the grandeur of the Grand Palace glistening brightly in the sunlight. You can pull up a stool at a hawker stall to try the tasty street food and finish the day with a sundowner, surveying the awesome skyline from an exclusive open air roof-top bar. The cities of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai act as gateways to Northern Thailand, which has a history, culture and cuisine all of its own. See the mighty elephants in Thailand’s famed Golden Triangle; barter to your heart’s content at the Chiang Mai night bazaar; go walking in the beautiful countryside or visit the numerous hill tribes of the area. We can’t mention Thailand without talking about its wonderful beaches though. The country has long been a mecca for hedonistic sun seekers and with good reason as it has some of the most beautiful stretches of coastline anywhere in Asia.

BEST TIME TO GO

The best time to visit Thailand is from November to February when the weather is dry and the temperatures are not too hot. During these winter months, the temperatures in the far north can drop down to freezing during the evenings, so trekking and camping trips in these areas are not recommended. From March to June the heat returns with temperatures soaring to over 40 degrees Celsius during the day with minimal rain and low humidity. Thailand’s rainy season begins toward the end of June and continues until October, generally consisting of a short but sharp downpour in the afternoon. The southern beaches are faced with two weather systems which bring the tropical rains at different times of the year, so it’s possible to enjoy Thailand’s beaches year-round. From January to September the east coast is sunny and dry, before moving to the west coast from October to April.

HOW TO GET THERE

Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport is one of Asia’s biggest hubs with hundreds of daily flights to worldwide destinations. Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai in the north and Hat Yai and Phuket in the south also have international airports, although they tend to cater to regional flights rather than long-haul.

MONEY

The currency in Thailand is the Baht, often abbreviated as THB. ATMs distributing Baht and money changers are found throughout the country. Although US Dollars are rarely accepted,most restaurants, hotels and other businesses will accept credit cards (1USD = 35 THB)

ELECTRICITY

Thailand uses 220V (50 cycles per second) but the plugs are not standardized. It is recommended to bring a universal plug adaptor.

THAI FOOD

Thai food has long been a favorite of people worldwide and combines powerful tastes with subtly matched fresh ingredients to provide a wonderfully flavorsome meal. Thai food can be fiercely spicy so it is imperative that you choose according to your taste, or you can simply tell your server ‘mai sai prik’ if you do not wish for any chilies in your meal, or if you like it just slightly spicy you can say ‘pet nik noi’. Dining in Thailand can range from basic street stalls offering simple yet sumptuous noodle soups, to the fine dining restaurants of the many international hotels and stand-alone restaurants that serve a vast array of international cuisine, including German, French, Italian, Japanese and Mediterranean, in addition to Thai culinary delights.

CLOTHING

Please be aware that Thailand is a conservative society and you should dress appropriately. When visiting temples, slacks are appropriate for men and longer length skirts for ladies. Shoulders must be covered when inside religious buildings. Shoes must be removed when entering temples and it is advisable to wear a pair of socks. When visiting the Grand Palace in Bangkok, you must ensure that both your knees and shoulders are covered. Heels must also be covered so no flip flops or open sandals should be worn.

PUBLIC HOLIDAYS

Thailand’s public holidays are regulated by the government with a total of 16 official days observed by banks and other businesses. The Thai New Year, Songkran, in mid-April is the largest annual celebration and the throwing of water and closing of restaurants can hinder travel plans. Other major holidays include The King’s and Queen’s birthdays (5 December and 12 August respectively) when many businesses close in celebration.

LANGUAGE

The most widely spoken language is Thai, a complicated language with five tones. Beside the numerous hill tribe dialects, other languages spoken include Malay, Lao, Khmer and Chinese. English is widely spoken throughout the country.
