The most popular destinations in this part of Thailand, taking around two hours by van from Bangkok are the Ayutthaya Historical Park and the province of Kanchanaburi.

    Ayutthaya was the capital of the old kingdom of Siam and used to be a wealthy, cosmopolitan city, as befitting one of the greatest civilizations of that time. The historical park houses the ruins of that ancient city, when it was ravaged by war in 1767, and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Kanchanaburi became famous in the mid-2oth century as the site of the Bridge over the River Kwai Hollywood movie. The bridge is still standing in its original form. This bridge has a historical significance, having been built by Allied POWs (prisoners of war) conscripted by the Japanese forces in World War II, as part of the Thai-Burmese Railway to carry supplies and arms to the Japanese forces.

    Southern Thailand is famous for its beautiful beaches and islands in the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea. Destinations you wouldn’t want to miss out on, with your children, family, friends or significant partner are Phuket, Koh Samui, Krabi, Koh Phi Phi Islands.

    Popular Thai Festivals and Celebrations

    The Thailand Songkran Holiday & Water Festival

    Songkran is the celebration of the traditional Thai New Year, celebrated annually for the past centuries. This holiday is a celebration of love and goodwill, compassion and thankfulness, with water as its means of expression. Hence, since the past century, this holiday got to be also referred to as the Water Festival.

    “Songkran” is a Sanskrit word that means to move or step forward. The three-day celebration of Songkran starts on the New Year’s Day of the Brahmin solar system. In Thailand, it is fixed on the 13th to 15th of April yearly. The 13th is called the Maha Songkran or the Grand Songkran, and has also been declared by the government as the Day of the Senior, or Elderly, as an official appreciation for the senior population for their contributions to the family and country. The 14th is designated as Family Day as a celebration of family love and togetherness. This holiday is a government-declared extended public holiday to give the people the chance to go to their hometowns for the celebration with family reunions and merry-making.

    Songkran was integrated into the Thai Water Festival. Water in Thai tradition is spiritually purifying of bad luck or grievances and endows blessings of fortune and happiness. Originally practised as collecting the cleansing waters for the Buddha statues to bless village elders and family members, trickling the waters over their shoulders. As in many traditional religious or cultural festivals, the celebrations shift to enjoyment and fun.

    Thailand Grand Sale -Annual Discount Shopping in Bangkok

    The Thailand Grand Sale in Bangkok is a yearly shopping mega-event between June and August, when you see hordes, yes, really hordes of crowds in the city’s shopping districts lugging several red shopping bags, the motif for participating malls and shops. The city’s shopping malls and local businesses take part in this activity, with discounts ranging from 10 – 80%, on the widest spectrum of shopping choices: clothes (from casual to sportswear) and footwear, jewellery, electrical and electronic items.

    Chiang Mai Flower Festival

    The colours that make up the vibrant Thai culture come from, among other things, its flowers, in all parts of this country. Every February, you can get this exciting opportunity to be surrounded by blooms of all sizes, colours, shapes, scents and flavours in the Chiang Mai Flower Festival. Chiang Mai is the biggest city in Northern Thailand and the capital of Chiang Mai Province. The city is nicknamed the “Rose of the North” for its gorgeous blooms and these are put on display during the Flower Festival with its parades of stunning floral design floats and floral images. The festival was originated in the 197os and had grown from a local event to one of global proportions, with guests from various countries enjoying this family-friendly event of parades, food markets, musical concerts, marching bands, among others.

    Starting on the first Friday of February all through the weekend ending Sunday evening, at several parts of the city are various events and activities to celebrate this festival among the local folk and guests from other parts of Thailand and the rest of the world.

    Koh Phangan Full Moon Party

    The Full Moon Party started with a group of tourists sometime in 1985 who found the most beautiful moon in Koh Phangan. They arranged to have a party to celebrate the full moon on Haad Rin, a crescent-shaped beach on the island. Since then, crowds reaching up to 30,000 people go to the island each month to celebrate the full moon party which has become a global full-blown event starting at dusk. By nighttime, the event turns frenetic with dancing to all genres of music, with performers like jugglers and fire-eaters entertaining the crowds including colourful fireworks displays.


    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is Thailand an expensive holiday destination?

    Thailand is among the famous holiday destinations in Southeast Asia for its stunning beaches and breathtaking sceneries. With the multitude of Thailand attractions, it’s easy to conclude that it’s an expensive destination for a holiday trip. On the contrary, a holiday package on a budget is not impossible.
    In all those holiday sites, accommodation types go from luxury hotels to bed-and-breakfasts to dormitory-style establishments, all offering the basic amenities for comfort and holiday enjoyment. Hotels in Thailand are way cheap. Guests in 5-star hotels get a lot more than they pay for, and establishments at the lower end cost really low. Thailand’s popularity as a holiday destination has also created a niche in its tourism industry. Thailand holiday packages and deals are many. Moreover, travellers from Western countries find, to their happy surprise, that currency conversion stretches their budgets farther.
    Going around Thailand is easy to do and also easy on the pocket. Rides in Bangkok like the MRT systems or thru the Grab App (the Asian version of Uber) or domestic flights. Except where taxi or ferry monopolies are present, or on the Tuk-tuks where drivers easily recognize inexperienced travellers and charge unreasonably high, it is generally easy to get to wherever you want to go.
    With many packages to choose from, the Land of Smiles will keep you smiling during your holiday vacation, to your heart’s content.

    What is the best time to go to Thailand?

    The best time to go to Thailand is between November-April, the cool and dry season. Temperatures change often in this country, so any time of the year is a good time to go, which you can confirm with your embassy’s travel advisory. That is why Thailand holiday packages during this period offer many holiday deals and discounts.

    Is Thailand safe?

    Generally, Thailand is a safe destination. It has even been rated the least dangerous country in Southeast Asia for travellers. There have been periods of unrest and conflicts in different parts of the country up to the present decade but hardly are there reported crimes in tourist areas. Of course, one must follow standard precautions in travelling, like keeping a close watch on personal belongings, awareness of surroundings, and there’s nothing to worry about.

    Is it cheap in Thailand?

    It is relatively cheap in Thailand, especially with a high conversion of Thai Baht to your country’s currency. Many things are cheap in Thailand because of low minimum wage, low labour costs, plus Thai merchants usually price their goods the same for both foreigners and native locals.
    Traveller reviews give Thailand a thumbs-up as among the best, if not the best value-for-money destination. From food and drinks to accommodations to shopping or souvenir crafts, prices are really reasonable, except for the tourist hot spots like Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Phangan, Koh Samui or Pattaya. Even in-country transportation costs are low-priced, as long as you remember to avoid negotiating with tuk-tuk drivers or take taxis without metres.

    What are the travel restrictions for a Thailand holiday?

    First, the requirements for visiting Thailand. In December 2020, the Thai Tourism Authority announced a Visa Exemption List for countries whose citizens are not required to obtain a Thai visa for a Thailand holiday. Thai Immigration Bureau policies grant a 45-day stay for foreigners. 60-day extensions are available to apply for. The shorter visa extension is because of the COVID.
    Certificate of Entry (COE). The COE is issued to Thai nationals and foreign nationals granted entry into Thailand. COE applications by foreign nationals must be submitted 5-15 days before departure. Without the COE, entry into Thailand is not allowed.
    COVID Insurance for Foreigners. The Covid Travel Insurance Certificate must be submitted to the Thai embassy together with the application for the visa and COE. The insurance must explicitly state the health coverage of 100,000 USD (minimum) and Covid-19, and the length of your stay in Thailand. This insurance can also be applied online with a credit card and you will immediately receive your policy and Covid-19 certificate thereafter.

    What is the best month to go to Thailand?

    As mentioned above, the best time of year for an ideal Thailand holiday is between November-April, their cool and dry season. Getting a good Thailand holiday package wouldn’t be hard and you could get into the hotels or luxury resorts you want for your accommodation. November is the best month for honeymoon trips or family trips to enjoy the stunning beaches of Hua Hin or Railey Beach on the west coast. June is also the best month to savour Thailand’s historic and colourful culture in beautiful weather, perfect to visit the ancient city of Ayutthaya, around 80 km north of Bangkok.
    For budget travellers, July-October is the “low season,” smaller crowds of tourists and lower prices for a good Thailand holiday package.

    Where to holiday in Thailand?

    Your choice of holiday destinations and itinerary will largely depend on your interests. For relaxation amidst the cool air of nature, Northern Thailand would fit your bill. There is Chiang Mai with its exotic hill tribes, Buddhist temples, handicraft markets and animal sanctuaries, Chiang Rai with the White Temple of intricate sculptures and designs, Sukhotai, the first capital city of ancient Siam and regarded as the “cradle of Thai civilization.”
