Thailand is a country in Southeast Asia with coasts on the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand. It borders Myanmar to the northwest, Laos to the northeast, Cambodia to the southeast and Malaysia to the south.
As one of Asia’s most popular travelling destinations, Thailand offers a range of experiences that will leave you feeling exhilarated! From the picturesque Ko Tarutao Island to the awe-inspiring historic city of Ayuthaya, you will get your fill of both man-made and natural wonders with this destination. Some of the most beautiful islands off the coast of Thailand that are definitely worth the visit include Ko Lipe, Ko Lanta and Ko Samet.
If you want to visit just the mainland, though, the cities of Bangkok, Chiang Rai, Phuket, Sukhothai and Pattaya have much to offer. Whatever your choice, though, you can look forward to crystal clear waters, thick jungles to explore and excellent dishes to sample! While Thailand comes with a list of world famous attractions, a few must-see locations include the Grand Palace or floating markets in Bangkok, Phang Nga Bay and the Similan and Phi Phi Islands.
Thailand isn’t just known for its attractions, though, as it boasts one of the most exotic culinary traditions in Asia. You can start your meal with a bowl of spicy tom yam goong, move on to some pad thai, dig into some kuay tiew and sample some som tam or khao man gai. Alternatively, kick off with some kao phad fried rice and a helping of geng kheaw, wan gai or gai med ma moung. Thailand also offers some of Asia’s top high dining opportunities as well such as the Whale’s Belly and Sole Mio in Bangkok.
Travellers also have a range of adventure sports to pick from! Whether you want to try your hand at elephant trekking, jumping out of a plane, cave exploring or kayaking, there are a number of options available for you. Additions to your holiday plans can range from a rock climbing expedition in Krabi, water sports in Chumphon and zip lining in Chang Mai to mountain biking in Phuket.
Whatever the activity you have in mind, it is important to have travel insurance in place before you try them out.
