The pulse of Asia beats with an exciting rhythm as the culturally-rich nation of Thailand offers a plethora of malls, markets and shopping outlets that will satisfy the shopping queens of the world. The capital city Bangkok is a neon lollapalooza of perpetually full nightclubs, bustling traffic flows and towering skyscrapers. Yet, amidst the bustle, lies the tranquil Grand Palace grounds, the iridescent Wat Arun and historical ancient kingdom of Ayutthaya – a respite from the city.
Traverse the other destinations in Thailand, and stumble upon the unique long neck tribe of Karen Village in Chiang Mai. In Krabi, it’s time to string up the bikinis on the pristine beaches or stretch your legs with some rock-climbing. Beautiful SuratThani is where you’ll encounter serenity on the Ratchaprabha Dam whilst enjoying the freshest oysters in the land,and the lady masseuses in Phuket will rub your tiredness away with an invigorating Thai massage. Of course, the party people in you can never miss out on the legendary Full Moon Parties in Koh Phangan!
If food makes the world go round, then your world will revolve around Thailand! Never say no to Thailand’s ubiquitous Tom Yam and Mango Sticky Rice, and if you’re up for a culinary challenge, the fried bugs sold along Bangkok’s street markets will entice you. Head over to Trang for their famous Dim Sum breakfast, and in UdonThani, take a bite of KhaiKrata – fried egg topped with ground pork, ham and sausage.
