Thailand is an amazing country with so much culture, natural beauty, and adventures to be had. Let’s get tips on how to organize your first trip to Thailand, things to plan before you go, and what to see and do once you're there.
The land of smiles is an environmentally diverse country with rich history and traditions. Traveling to the north you’ll see amazing mountains and forests, indigenous hill tribes, and an old city full of temples. To the south, you can boat between islands, dive or snorkel, and enjoy island life and its relaxed attitude. But before you research both, there are things to know before visiting Thailand. Tips for travelers to Thailand include etiquette when in front of Thai people and a basic understanding of some of their customs to make sure you know how to fit in in Thailand. You can research all the Thailand do's and don'ts online, and depending where you go in Thailand, some customs may be a bit different. But important do not is never to talk about the Thai Royal Family, just stay clear of this topic. Other common Thailand travel basics are when visiting temples, be sure to have your shoulders and legs covered, and make sure you take your shoes off before entering.
It is normal to have Bangkok at the beginning or end of a trip or both as it’s the major international airport hub in Thailand, but it's also a massive city with endless things to do, see, and eat. Having adventures in Bangkok is almost too easy and there are so many ways to get around. There are loads of apps you can download to help you navigate. You can check out the app for the skytrain or subway and use those to get around and see things like the Grand Palace and Wat Pho. Or you can go the safe and convenient route, download grab, very similar to Uber, and let a driver pick you up anywhere you want. Then there is all the must try food in Bangkok. From food stalls to fine dining restaurants, the city is teeming with countless ways to eat great food 24 hours a day. Download apps to help you navigate through all the options to find the best for your budget and cravings. Bangkok is a city you can visit often and never see the same things. Be prepared and you will know how to enjoy Bangkok.
After Bangkok, where to go in Thailand? A great suggestion would be to build an itinerary on your travel app from Chiang Mai to Thai islands in the south. In Chiang Mai you can marvel at the countless temples, beautiful walled city, and use an app to find the best Khao Soi spot in the city. It would also feel a lot more relaxed and after the whirlwind of Bangkok. From the mountains to the ocean, explore the world of Thailand and find out what to do in southern Thailand. If you want to relax on a quiet beach, away from the major tourist spots like Phuket, you might want to research the non touristy islands in Thailand. These islands can feel like paradise, where time slows down and the stars are the brightest. If you want to learn to dive, you can research dive companies online and book before you arrive. On most islands, the best way to get around is by motorbike, but make sure you buy travel insurance online before you set off for an adventure.
