On why Thailand is one of the most in-demand destinations for travelers right now, and what you need to know about visiting. 

|Why Should Someone Consider Visiting Thailand?

The people, culture and food! All three of these are highlights for anyone traveling to Thailand. You will learn so much about the Buddhist religion as you visit the endless temples around the country. The food is just amazing – it is fresh, tasty and readily available everywhere! Try things that you wouldn’t normally try if you were back home and really push yourself to understand the culture that is around you while visiting.

| When Is The Best Time to Travel to Thailand?

It will vary from the north mountains to the south islands, but for the most part the best time would be in the cool/dry season which is between November to April. It’s best to avoid visiting between July and October as it is monsoon season. The islands are most likely to have great weather all year round.

| What Experiences Are a 'Must Do' When Visiting?

Temples! I suggest visiting the top ones: The White Temple in Chiang Rai (Wat Rong Khun), Wat Pho in Bangkok with the 46-meter gold plated Reclining Buddha and Wat Arun, also in Bangkok. Arrange to speak with a monk to learn about their way of life and the Buddhist religion. Another must do is an Andaman boat tour around the gorgeous beaches and islands in the south. You should also visit the pristine, white sand beaches. All of the islands are beautiful, and you will not be disappointed.

| What Travel Tips Would You Pass On?

Pro tip – shopping is cheaper in the northern markets! You’ll find that the prices are double or triple in the markets in the south. There is such a thing as ‘Thai Time’. You will learn that this means they are usually slower or later than normal – they take their time. Make sure you have as much fresh fruit as you can, it is so fresh and delicious. The Thai people love their king and are very proud that their country has never been colonized. Lastly, do not touch people’s heads. The head is sacred in Thai culture, and it is a sign of disrespect to touch their head.
