Thailand travel tips
Like most major capital cities, there’s heaps to take in. If you’re just here for a layover or a few days, you’ll be able to take in a lot of the Thai culture in a short time. One of the coolest places to visit in Bangkok is the Grand Palace. Plan for it to take up a good portion of the day—it’s definitely something you don't want to miss. Since it's such a high-traffic city, use the Skytrain or take a scenic boat ride down the Chao Phraya River. If you’re looking to do tons of shopping, visit the Chatuchak Market—it’s home to over 8,000 different shopping stalls!
If you are heading north from Bangkok, make Chiang Mai your home base. This quieter city is a great place to explore and there’s loads of nearby day trips to take. Some must-sees from Chiang Mai? Visit Doi Inthanon National Park to see the unique pagoda and the view from the top of the mountains. A few hours north you’ll find Chaing Rai, home of the white temple—another must-do. If you're looking for a quieter town, Pai is also just a few hours away, tucked away in the mountains with chilled out hippy vibes.
Phuket and Krabi are two beach towns along the southwest coast of Thailand. They are about a 2-hour ferry ride from the famous islands of Phi Phi. The Phi Phi islands are like nothing else in the world. There are no cars, you can go to a bar or beach club barefoot and experience crystal-clear water. Whether you are in Phuket, Krabi, or the Phi Phi islands, there are breathtaking hikes for stellar views of the islands to watch the sunset or sunrise.
What to eat in Thailand
Thailand is most famous for its street food. Besides the very delicious Pad Thai and pineapple fried rice there are also a ton of other great things try. Start off with a Papaya Salad, then move onto Chicken or Beef Satay. For dessert, have some mango sticky rice or for the extra-adventurous eaters, try the durian fruit. Durian is a very acquired taste, but it’s worth it to say you’ve tried it!
