Thailand Travel Advice includes information about Thai food, speaking Thai, books about Thailand, and you cannot write about Thailand without discussing the Thai girls.  We offer many tips and advice about traveling in Thailand including cultural and customs advice, driving, money exchange, marriage, visa information, and tipping at restaurants.  The great cities of Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya and neighboring Jomtien Beach, Phuket and the other islands are fun to see with many options for cultural experiences and entertainment.  The North-Eastern part of Thailand is referred to as Isaan region and have the cities of Udon Thani and Khon Kaen that are full of a different experience and slightly diverse culture.

One of the big reasons why we enjoy traveling to Thailand is the low cost of the various events and activities.  We have visited other countries where we had to choose which activity to do in order to stay within our travel budget.  In Thailand, we can afford to do everything.   The most frustrating thing we experience in Thailand is there are only 24 hours in a day.  Have a great time visiting Thailand, which, we believe, is the best place in the world.

Best Time to Travel to Thailand

While most of the world has four seasons, Thailand has two, Hot and Dry, Hot and Wet.  Like all of South-East Asia, Thailand has a raining season where it rains every day. However, the rains usually quickly comes and rain like crazy for an hour or so, then it is gone for the day. 

Many days, the rain will come at about the same time – late afternoon or early evening.  When it rains, it seems like it is coming in buckets.  The streets flood quickly and everything is wet.  If you watch the locals, they know when it will rain and they will begin to prepare for it.  Less typical are the days where it will rain like cats and dogs all day and continue for a few days.  When is raining season? Usually starts in June and continues through October.

The best time to travel to Thailand for the best weather and to experience most of the festivals is November through April.

About Thailand

Where is Thailand?  Thailand is an independent country that lies in the heart of Southeast Asia.  It is bordered by Myanmar (Burma), Laos, Cambodia, and Malaysia. The country is a kingdom, a constitutional monarchy with King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the ninth king of the House of Chakri, reigning since 1946.  The King is officially titled Head of State, the Head of the Armed Forces, an Upholder of the Buddhist religion, and the Defender of all Faiths.

The largest city in Thailand is Bangkok, the capital, which is also the country’s center of political, commercial, industrial and cultural activities.  Thailand’s population of over 63 million are primarily Buddhists. Situated in Southeast Asia, Thailand is predominantly a Buddhist kingdom almost equidistant from India and China. Known by outsiders as Siam for centuries, Thailand has been something of a Southeast Asian migratory, cultural, and religious crossroads. Thailand offers over 1,000 miles of coastline of white sandy beaches, bays and coves, with many beach and island activities for people of all ages.

Visitors can experience a revitalizing Thai massage in the “heavenly land of spas” or go shopping in one of Thailand’s upscale shopping malls, high street shops, bustling markets, and back street stalls. Thai food has become one of the most popular cuisines in the world, made up of the Thailand’s four main regions – Northern, Northeastern, Central and Southern. Travel to Thailand and experience all that Thailand has to offer!
