Is it your first trip to Thailand? Do not worry; by reading this article you will know what to do to truly know the country and, in the process, avoid possible problems. Below, I tell you my 8 tips for traveling to Thailand.
Thailand travel tips and advice
Keep calm my friend
Thailand is a place that has to be seen calmly and tranquilly. To make an express trip you do not have to go; minimum there is to be a week in the country. Cities like Chiang Mai or Bangkok already require at least 3 or 4 days to get to know them in depth.
Run away from the crowd
The best beaches are precisely the least crowded, since tourist overexploitation has deteriorated them a lot. To discover virgin and desert coves you will have to inform before leaving or ask the locals.
What to do in Thailand?
When we are going to visit a place where we have not been before we must be clear about what cannot be missing in our travel plan. My recommendation is that in your visit to Thailand you cannot stop doing these 6 things:
- Give yourself a good Thai massage
- Visit the night markets of the city of Chiang Mai
- Going out in Bangkok
- A boat ride on the Krabi Islands
- Diving on the beaches of Koh Tao
- Visit the temple Wat Phra Kaeo and the Wat Pho
Come to rebentar
Do not be afraid to gain weight and get purple in your visit, since all the calories you earn eating you will lose walking or doing the activities that I proposed you do. All the food in Thailand is delicious but I recommend you try the Pad Thai and the Noodles. The street food in this country is very successful, as it is a combination of more immediate flavor when serving.
Always with protection … against mosquitoes
Your main enemies in Thailand are going to be mosquitoes. They are everywhere and also have a larger size than in other countries, I do not know exactly what is due. Also do not forget that they can transmit diseases, although if you take the necessary measures this will not happen. Then you know, in your suitcase you cannot miss the anti-mosquito sprays or the creams, whatever you prefer.
Search, compare and … air conditioning
In Thailand there are a lot of places that offer accommodation, so you should take your time and compare what one hotel offers you. The essential thing that cannot be missing in your room is the air conditioning, but the nights will be very long.
Respect if you want to be respected
If you do not want to have problems with people, you should respect their culture and social norms. A Thai cannot touch his head if you do not have enough confidence with him. Nor do you have to speak loudly in public places or comment on politics. In the temples you will have to go with the right clothes, and when you have an image of Buddha in front of you, you will have to bend down in a sign of respect if you do not want them to be offended.
