So, you haven’t been to Thailand yet. Where have you been? Thailand is only one of the world’s best paradise spots. There’s a little bit of everything, a bustling and modern city that rivals any in terms of modernity, rolling hills, culture, heritage and of course those world class beaches! Ready for the ride?
Bangkok. The city that doesn’t sleep. The blending of the traditional and the modern. One of the traveling Mecca’s of the world. However you want to describe it, the Thai capital is a delight on the senses! Your experiences here include dining on the Chao Phraya River, exploring the glittering temples at the Grand Palace, Chinatown and the nearby ancient capital and home of historical temple ruins at Ayutthya, a floating market and an unusual one on train tracks. You have to experience the City of Angels for yourself to be able to comprehend it into words.
Northward we go as Chiang Mai is our next destination. It’s a little cooler up here because the city is located amongst the area’s lush rolling hills. Explore the surrounding jungles on the back of a giant beast – none other than the friendly elephant. The town is home to great temples, none of which is Doi Suthep, the revered mountain monastery. And who can forget the friendly and traditional hilltribes? Exchange knowledge and better yet, an unexplained kinship as share your travel experiences (and of course some stuff about you and your homeland) with them while they in turn show you their way of life – almost unchanged for the past couple of centuries.
And we mentioned beaches earlier, didn’t we? Board that plane and head on south to the island of Phuket, Thailand’s biggest and most popular and the last destination on this Essential Thailand holiday tour. Breathe in the fresh air of the seaside, swim in the turquoise water and relax on what many consider to be Thailand’s finest beach. A little touring here and there takes you to temples, a museum and some samples of coffee and nuts at local factories. Otherwise, relax and unwind at total leisure. Phuket will help you with that.
