Thailand is more than often a traveler’s first international destination. And why shouldn’t it be? Its well connected, people are warm and welcoming, the place is totally tourist friendly and the country offers amazing beaches thanks to its long coastline along the stunning Andaman Sea and Gulf of Thailand. But there’s more to beaches with the ever-busy Bangkok and the beautiful hills of North Thailand.

The most beautiful in the world is, of course, the world itself.

Experience

The typical Thailand trip comprises of gorgeous beaches, water sports, food, partying and more fun. But there’s whole lot more to it than that. We will start from the North and go down South.

NORTH THAILAND:
Bordering Myanmar to Laos, the region is characterized with mountain ranges. The region also has many national parks and one could find quite a few Elephant orphanages as well. The largest city in the North is Chiang Mai, which has an International airport as well. There are many interesting temples in Chiang Mai such as Wat Phra Singh, with its famous Buddha image. On the way to Chiang Rai you will encounter Chiang Dao Cave, which is full of sacred Buddha images and natural formations. You could also visit the Golden Triangle the area where the border of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos meet. There is a Hall of Opium, which is a museum dedicated to illicit drugs and their effects.

BANGKOK:
Thailand’s capital city Bangkok is large modern city with ornate shrines, palaces, vibrant street and night life. The boat-filled Chao Phraya River feeds its network of canals with just the right setting for the popular floating market, flowing past the Rattanakosin royal district, home to opulent Grand Palace and its sacred Wat Phra Kaew Temple. Nearby is Wat Pho Temple with an enormous reclining Buddha and, on the opposite shore, Wat Arun Temple with its steep steps and Khmer-style spire. Great place to hang out and shop as well.

SOUTH THAILAND:
If you move further down south you would feel that you are in paradise, with stunning beaches and beautiful islands to choose from. Top picks are Phuket, Pattaya, Krabi, Koh Samui, which offer multiple water activities and round the clock entertainment with shows, hang-outs, bars and some awesome culinary delights.
While you are there a trip into the beautiful Khao Sok National Park is a must.

If this is your first time to Thailand, don’t try to visit every place in one go because you are bound to come back ☺
