    Geography

    Thailand is located in Southeast Asia. Shaped like an elephant head, the country has two large ear-like features that are surrounded by Burma, Laos, and Cambodia, and a trunk extending down to the border of Malaysia. The country is broken into six regions, which are categorized by their geographical location and land features. Northern Thailand, for example, is covered in forested mountains, while Southern Thailand is a peninsula with a tropical climate and beaches.

    Best and Worst Times to Visit

    Thailand has three seasons: cool, hot, and rainy. The cool season is also considered high season, running from November to March. It’s comfortable and dry during this time, but still warm enough to hit the beach. Temperatures tend to linger around the 70s and 80s F. This time of year does attract the most visitors though, so crowds and higher rates run rampant.

    The hot season usually lasts roughly from April to June. It’s considered the shoulder season because fewer tourists visit during this time. Temperatures do spike to 100 degrees F, so your best bet is a breezy spot at the seaside.

    Some consider the rainy season the worst time of the year to visit. From July to October, it’s not uncommon for monsoons to roll through and flood the streets. While the weather is unpredictable during these months, you can expect rain almost every day.

    Things to Do

    Thailand is an intriguing land with temples, palaces, and ancient sites. Begin discovering this country’s past with a visit to the Grand Palace in Thailand. The Kings of Thailand lived here from the late 18th century until the mid-20th century. Today, visitors can tour the magnificent architecture and visit Wat Phra Kaew, which houses the Emerald Buddha, one of the oldest Buddha statues in the world. Discover some of this history and then rest up at one of the hotels in Bangkok before exploring the historical park at Ayutthaya and Wat Pho, home to Thailand’s largest reclining Buddha.

    Thailand includes a number of scenic islands with white-sand beaches and turquoise waters, so it’s no wonder island hopping is a favorite pastime for vacationers. Head to Ko Phi Phi Lee or Ko Phi Phi Don for a snorkeling excursion, search for the stone arch on Koh Khai island, and discover the waterfalls on Koh Adang. Scuba dive at Ko Tao or simply bask on the shores of Koh Rang Yai. From exploring the sea life to lounging under the palm trees, the islands offer it all.

    Then treat your palate at the one of the remarkable floating markets. Vendors sell fresh produce and cuisine on wooden boats while cruising down the river canals. These colorful markets provide a unique way of interacting with the locals and getting a taste of traditional Thai grub. Purchase horseshoe crab egg salad at the Amphawa Floating Market, or barter for some prawns at the Taling Chan Floating Market.

    Culture

    Thailand is a country steeped in tradition. The majority of the people practice Buddhism and many of their Thai customs are associated with the religion. The country is referred to as the Land of Smiles as the people believe in maintaining a polite and happy demeanor. The wai is another common tradition, which is a salutation that usually involves a prayer-like motion and a bow.

    Thailand also celebrates several festivals each year. Loy Krathong is one of the popular ones, which takes place on the full moon toward the end of October or early November. During this 3-day celebration, the locals decorate krathong, or folded banana leaves, and float them on rivers or oceans to send away bad luck and welcome good luck. In many cities, you’ll also find street vendors and entertainment during the celebrations.

    Songkran is another famous festival in Thailand that takes place from April 13 to 15, which coincides with the new year. Traditionally, Thai people would sprinkle water on one another to rinse away bad luck, but the holiday has since gotten a little wetter. Nowadays, the locals take to the streets with water guns to soak one another in the name of good fortune.

    Food

    Spicy is nice-y when it comes to traditional Thai food. Many dishes master the combination of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy. While popular dishes vary throughout the country, nearly every meal, from curry to soup, is served with rice. Much of the cuisine is mixed with ingredients such as lemon grass, garlic, chilies, and fish sauce. Tom yam kung, a spicy shrimp soup, and the fried noodle dish, pad Thai, are common menu items, along with som tum, which is a spicy papaya salad.

    From flavorful meals to magnificent temples, this destination belongs at the top of your itinerary. Book one of our cheap deals on resorts and hotels in Thailand to find a place that matches the vibe of your Southeast Asian vacation.

    "A great place to soothe your travel-addled mind"
    The Suvarnabhumi airport is great place to luxuriate and rest in between travel. Despite the relative expense, this hotel offers a timely refuge if you are travelling for education or business purposes as I do. Hopefully they will lead the way in doing away with the bottled water which has become dominant in Asia.

    "Nice five star hotel by the Chao Praya River"
    Nice five star hotel, not as posh as Lebua, but not as expensive either. We have stayed on the 33 rd floor in one bedroom apartment and we upgraded to Tower Club. Their afternoon tea and evening lunch were worth paying extra for. Breakfast was nice with selection of different food, not as extensive as a Lebua, but sufficient enough for us. Hotel is on the other side of the river, in less touristy part of Bangkok, but every 15-20 minutes free boat is provided by Chatrium to take you to Taksin Pier where you can either catch metro train or river boat to another part of the town. Very close to Asiatique Market, but be warned that is you like the charm of Khao San Road this won't be your cup of tea. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Would we stay again? Probably yes, as it is lots cheaper than Lebua State Tower.

    "Decent Hotel But Not Worthy of +VIP Status"
    I'll start by saying that in terms of accomodation and value - this property is fine. However, I left the property disappointed for the following reason: I chose this hotel specifically for the +VIP benefits which have up until this point pleasantly surprised me at every property. If you are considering this property for this same reason - PLEASE LOOK ELSEWHERE. This property grossly underwhelms on all fronts and does not do the +VIP program justice. Why? Because the staff is completely oblivious to the details of the program and the significance of +VIP status. During my stay I did not receive a single +VIP benefit, even after having to ask multiple staff members at the front desk what the benefits actually are? It took the the staff 10 minutes to find the details on the computer only to have them miscommunicated (30 minutes free soa package later became 30 minutes free after 90+ min booking...)

    "Fabulous hotel with amazing pool bar."
    The hotel was amazing very clean and all the staff were friendly, we even got a free upgrade on arrival. The pool bar staff are fabulous and so funny. Only thing to note is it can be noisy at night due to the location as it is right next to all the bars. This didn't bother us as we were out in the bars anyway.

    "Beautiful setting, great service, and lots of fun."
    We reserved our room online and paid in advance for a deluxe room with a jetted tub. Upon check in we asked about an upgrade and were able to negotiate a good price for a villa. We were scheduled for 4 nights and this gave us more space, privacy, and our own private pool. We absolutely felt this was a great decision and contributed to a most enjoyable stay. Though we weren't able to negotiate a villa with an ocean view due to our budget preferences, we were able to totally enjoy the amazing ocean views from the property's two infinity pools, private beach, and onsite restaurants. The service was excellent, the staff were super friendly, and the food was good.

    "Excellent, peaceful hotel"
    A beautiful hotel run by lovely, friendly staff. Very clean and the staff were very attentive. We upgraded to a pool access room on arrival which didn't cost very much at all and was well worth it for a luxury room. Not in the busiest of areas, but we liked this fact and it was still within walking distance of a handful of bars and restaurants, the Big Budda and small convenience stores offering a range of everyday items. All local excursion companies will pick you up, and the hotel offers free beach trips and trips to the fishermans market at a very reasonable price, so don't let the location put you off. The hotel restaurant was reasonably priced, and only the alcohol was 'expensive' being double the price of local bars but still half the price of the UK. The food was varied and good quality, although the all you can eat special nights weren't worth the money. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and good quality. Our favourite local restaurant was Sopa which is 5 minutes walk away. Don't let the cafe look put you off! They offer basic but very tasty authentic home made Thai meals at a very reasonable price. The beer here is half the price of the hotel and the atmosphere was great! The private beach was beautiful and clean with white sand, which the staff meticulously prepare every morning! Not really a swimming beach but the hotel offering such lovely clean pools we didn't see this as a problem.
