Knowing a bit about Thailand

I have a few motto in life and one of them is “I live to journey”. There is barely any of only few that I will remember for-life. Thailand is among the rare states who I’ve come to fall in love with. In the lack of that, I believe there’s seldom another place where you are able to get better value for your cash.

Bangkok, as the capital of Siam, assures lots of excitement and surprises. Unlike the other smaller destinations, Bangkok is undoubtedly more energetic and has plenty to surprise any first time traveller. From the gold palace to the weekend marketplace. The scale of Chatuchak weekend market will definitely leave you impressed. You can find almost any culinary delights seen in any areas of Siam and also the amazing handicrafts that are so distinctively Thailand. Don’t forget to find one of the Tuk Tuk if you happen to be in Bangkok.

Apart from Bangkok, Phuket is probably the most well-known destination in Siam. Geographically located at the outer most stretch of the peninsula, the coastal line of Phuket is one of the best on earth. But it’s the 2006 Tsunami that shot Phuket to recognition to the world and it was for no good motive. Thanks God I was not there when the disaster struck as I find myself seeing Siam rather regularly. If there’s one thing that you’ve got to try when visiting Phuket, it’d function as shore massage. I can’t think of any better place to have massage than placing on the beach as you see the sun comes down slowly in your horizon.

Chiang Mai is one place in Thailand that promises to be different from your other areas of Siam. Most of the nation’s tourism places are lying along the coastal line which essentially means they are shore destination. On the other hand, Chiang Mai has a much more enjoyable and cooling weather through the year which is due to how it lies in quite high elevation. Another unique point is its geographic area which lies at the heart of among the world’s most fearsome edge referred to as the Golden Triangle. Besides the town’s famed night market, you should truly spend some time visiting the border also.

Places like Krabi and Koh Samui are must-visit destinations and do not say you’ve gone to Thailand if you’ve not visited these areas. What leaves me astonished is the nevertheless pristine shores you can find in these areas despite the substantial tourism presence which generally have triggered over-commercialization. There is scarcely any such area anymore today. But be sure you check the monsoon calendar if you want to visit these locations as several of the draws are closed during the monsoon period.
