A Short Visit To Thailand

Posted on 16 February 2020 by admin (0)

Thailand is one of the greatest travel destinations in Southeast Asia and is known for its pristine beaches and sacred figures of Buddha. It is probably the only place on earth with a great mix of culture and modernization.

While Thailand boasts a religious culture, it is also home to loud night clubs which can be notoriously daunting for first-timers looking for some wild adventures. So here are some tips when you are planning to visit Thailand.

Bring some cash

While you can carry your credit and debit cards, it is always safe to bring some cash. If you want to experience a real Thailand trip, do not just spend your time in swanky restaurants and luxury malls. Stroll the streets at night and taste some of the famous street food. In this case, you need to pay with your cash and not with your credit cards.

Keep your guards up

While the people in Thailand are very friendly, remain on-guard for scams. Some places in Thailand, such as Bangkok is very crowded and it is very easy to lose some valuable things in this scenario.

Explore and enjoy

There are many great tourist attractions in Thailand aside from the main sites that you see on the internet. Make sure you have a spare day to stroll around Thailand without following some itinerary. Just ride a tuk-tuk (or taxi) or rent a scooter to explore the main thoroughfares. Take as many pictures of its neighborhood and enjoy places such as Pai and Chang Mai.

Stay healthy

While the food in Thailand is quite tempting, do not overeat. Especially if you are not familiar with the food, don’t take any risks.  Make sure you bring medicines for hyper acidity or upset tummy. Drink bottled water instead of tap water, and make sure you heat your food before eating them. Avoid eating raw seafood.

Take your time

Thailand is a beautiful city with a vibrant nightlife. After visiting some tourist spots in the morning, you can drop by some popular clubs in Bangkok. Just make sure you don’t drink too much so you can go home safely. Tag along a friend and enjoy the night together.  Aside from bar hopping, there are many after-dark adventures that you can try such as visiting the Chang Chui Night Market (NEW), a mix of artsy, urban market where you can enjoy some good food and beer.
