    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.

    Whether you’re embarking on a luxury getaway, honeymoon retreat, or family trip, you’ll find the perfect lodging. Here at Expedia.com, we offer a vast selection of cheap deals on Thailand hotels and resorts to help you find a place within your price range.

    You have the option of staying at one of the resorts in Thailand, too. These places tend to offer additional amenities such as multiple pools, full-service spas, and recreational activities. You’ll even come across resorts with poolside bars, conference space, and various restaurants. Check out our assortment of resorts to find your ideal match.

    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.

    "The best hotel in Bangkok"
    The best feature of the Intercontinental is the staff. For example, a waitress named Na in the Trattoria Restaurant: good English, impeccably presented, and ultra courteous and attentive. She was typical of all of the staff. The rooms and public areas: well maintained. The rooms are great. I really cannot fault this hotel at all.

    "Very convenience location"
    I chose this because of the location. The hotel is decent and nothing to complain about but not one of those wow hotel. It's definitely above average. The room is clean, the staffs are nice. My favorite part is location. It's right in front of Central World and next to Big C. Travelling with a one year old, the location is the most important part. The traffic to downtown is super bad and you don't want to get stuck in traffic when your baby is fussy. In the past, I stayed at a hotel 3 blocks from the mall but walking 3 blocks carrying an exhausted baby is not fun. I would definitely stay here again next time. Just one thing to note, if Central World has a concert, you will hear it from the room.
