A flight to Thailand will familiarise you with the most visually historic country in South East Asia. The country is literally inundated with temples and magnificent buildings, and famed for its warm and hospitable people. There are numerous direct flights to Bangkok or Krung Thep as the capital of Thailand is known locally, from around the world. Bangkok is a busy, noisy and bustling city, but is one of Asia's most exciting and should be experienced at least once in a lifetime.
A city of contrasts with the modern skyscrapers sitting side by side with ancient Buddhist temples, Bangkok is a rich tapestry of history and culture. From the Emerald Buddha to the night market of Patpong, from the Grand Palace to the floating market, Bangkok is simply a whole world in one city. There are many internal flights from Bangkok to Thailand’s various famous cities.
Pattaya is a great city for those who enjoy the night life. During the day time it is a haven for water sports lovers as it once was a tiny fishing village. Pattaya has grown wonderfully into a cosmopolitan city and one of Thailand's favorite ‘playgrounds'. Your trip to Thailand would not be complete without a flight to Phuket. It is dubbed ‘The Pearl of the South' and is the largest of Thailand's islands. The island is scattered with lush tropical vegetation, plantations and limestone hills, edged by glorious sandy beaches.
Patong Beach is the most developed of all Phuket's beaches, with lively activities both day and night. Koh Samui, only a short trip from Phuket, is one of Thailand's most famous beach resorts. Its crystal clear waters, white sandy beaches, and stunning coral beds makes it a great destination for relaxation. Boat trips to the nearby smaller islands make a well-deserved break from the pressures of sunbathing. The vast coastline of Krabi is home to many of Thailand's most pristine beaches, some of which have been featured in James Bond movies.
If you want a break from basking on an exotic beach, Krabi is only a short flight from Bangkok. The beach resorts of Cha-Am and Hua Hin are renowned for their idyllic quality and a glimpse of paradise. Not only do these two resorts offer stunning beaches, the surrounding landscape positively beckons you to explore it. A flight to Thailand will surely not disappoint you, if a beach vacation is not for you; then a trip to Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai is something you don’t want to miss.
The stunning hills offer views of temples scattered throughout lush forests, and incense wafting from elaborately decorated pagodas. Chiang-Mai, a one-time capital of mystical Lanna Thai, and Chiang Rai, capital of the northern most province of Thailand, are like living museums.
Shopping: Handicrafts, textiles, gems, jewellery, art and antiques are popular buys. Prices are usually fixed in department stores; elsewhere bargaining is the norm. Transport: Visitors are recommended to take the Chao Phraya Express Boat System, the Bangkok Sky Train or metered taxis, all of which are quite reasonably priced. With Bangkok's historic traffic jams, driving around is best avoided. Cuisine: Home of the exotic Thai cuisine, one need not try anything else. But if you have to, all types of western and Asian cuisine is available in hotels
