THAILAND TRAVEL GUIDE with Multi-City ITINERARIES: 4, 6, 7, 12 Days

It’s not hard to imagine the backpacking scene in mainland Southeast Asia as an organism, something that is living, breathing, growing. And if you picture the roads and air routes as the veins and arteries, you’ll find the heart of this dynamic creature in Thailand.

Outside the region, when the term Southeast Asia is mentioned, Thailand is the first to come to mind. Although foreigners see it as an exotic destination, it is far from unfamiliar. Thailand has penetrated the international pop culture in many aspects. Countless classic movies have been either set or shot here. Thai food is one of the most globally revered Asian cuisines. And as far as tourism goes, Thailand is one of the most successful. Those traveling to Southeast Asia will most likely find themselves in Thailand at one point in their journey. In fact, its capital Bangkok is the most visited city in the world, welcoming over 30 million tourists per year.

Thailand will be taking over the chairmanship of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and currently preparing to host next year’s ASEAN Summit. If you’re traveling to Thailand soon, it will be an exciting time as the country prepares to showcase all the best that it has to offer.

Thailand: Essential Travel Information

Thailand is officially known as the Kingdom of Thailand and formerly known as Siam. Locals call their country Mueang Thai.

At the very center of mainland Southeast Asia often referred to as Indochina, Thailand is bordered by Myanmar to the west, Laos to the north, Cambodia to the east, and Malaysia to the south. It is not completely landlocked though. The greater portion of its southern tail is caught in between the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea. This location allowed a diverse culture to grow and flourish.

Over centuries, the region is ruled by many states including the Ayutthaya Kingdom, the Lan Na, and Sukhothai Kingdom. It was unified by King Taksin the Great in 1767, signaling the start of Thonburi Kingdom. But in 1782, King Rama I established the Rattanakosin Kingdom and moved the capital to Bangkok.

Thailand takes pride in being the only Southeast Asian nation not to be conquered by Western colonizers, not counting some parts of the territory that were conceded. Today, Thailand is second biggest economy in the ASEAN region, third with highest human development index, and a leader in many industries including renewable energy.

Here are more information bits to know about Thailand.

  • Language: Thai. Their language can be quite daunting to non-native speakers, especially its lengthy words and tongue-twisting pronunciations, but as with every other language, it only intimidates in the beginning. English isn’t widely spoken, but what the locals lack in English fluency, they make up for with their friendly attitude toward tourists.
  • Religion: Theravada Buddhism. Around 94% of the population are Buddhists. Islam is the second biggest faith, making up almost 5% of Thais.
  • Currency: Thai Baht (THB, ฿). THB100 is roughly USD3, EUR 2.6, SGD 4.2, PHP 164 (as of September 2018).
  • Modes of payment: Cash. Although some restaurants and hotels accept credit cards, smaller establishments only accept cash.
  • Electricity Info: 220V. Most common sockets are sort of a combination of Types A and C. They have two holes that can accept both flat and round pins. This type of socket can take plugs that are Types A, C, and F.


Best Time to Visit Thailand

December to April. Meteorologists usually divide the map of Thailand into six regions with distinct climate patterns. Each region feels different. For example, Phuket in the south provides a very different experience from Chiang Mai in the north.

However, December to April is generally the best time to visit. These months enjoy the most sunshine and littlest to no rain. January and February, in particular, are the most pleasant for sightseeing because these are the coolest months. Not surprisingly, they also make up the biggest chunk of the island’s high season so expect massive crowds.

Temperatures begin to rise and the monsoon kicks in mid-May lasting until October. August-October is the period that catches the most rainfall, so if you can avoid it, do so.

Aside from the weather, you want to consider the festivals too. Two of the most widely celebrated national holidays in Thailand are the following:

  • Songkran, the Thai New Year, which usually happens around April 13-15. People splash water on each other, which symbolizes washing away sins and misfortunes.
  • Loi Krathong, observed every 12th full moon of the year, which usually falls in November. Locals make baskets from leaves and wood and float them downriver. In Northern Thailand, it coincides with the Lanna festival called Yi Peng, wherein lanterns are launched into the sky.

If you don’t like big crowds, however, avoid these dates.


Where to Go in Thailand

Bangkok is the backpacking capital of Thailand and ASEAN in general. It has the perfect mix of modern comforts and exotic charms, pulsating with life and drawing in more tourists than any other city in the world and then pumping some of them out to other nearby destinations. From Bangkok, it is easy to visit other cities in Thailand and neighboring countries either by air or by land.

The four most visited destinations in Thailand are, in order, Bangkok, Pattaya, Chiang Mai, and Phuket. We have specific travel guides for these cities (except Pattaya), so if you want to learn more about them, just follow the links below.


Bangkok

Airports: Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK), Don Mueang International Airport (DMK)
Best Time to Visit: November to April

The capital of Thailand, Bangkok is the commercial, economic, and political center of the country. It is a wild, highly developed third-world metropolis but is still very much in touch with its past. Bangkok’s history as the Thai capital began in 1782, when King Rama I had the people move south following the fall of Ayutthaya in 1767.

Must-see Attractions:

  • Grand Palace
  • Temples and shrines
  • Night markets
  • Floating markets

Nearby Destinations:

  • Ayutthaya
  • Pattaya
  • Rayong

Chiang Mai

Airports: Chiang Mai International Airport (CNX)
Best Time to Visit: November to mid-February

Chiang Mai has all the right qualities of a backpacking hub in perfect balance. It has a tourist-friendly atmosphere, vibrant markets, irresistible cuisine, affordable cost of living, and warm, helpful locals. It is the largest city in Northern Thailand with lots of commercial establishments, but it retains a peaceful, traditional vibe. No wonder it has become one of the most popular bases for digital nomads in Asia.

Must-see Attractions:

  • Temples and shrines
  • Cooking classes
  • Weekend markets
  • Doi Inthanon National Park

Nearby Destinations:

  • Pai
  • Chiang Rai

Phuket & Krabi

Airports: Phuket International Airport (HKT)
Best Time to Visit: December to April

An island off the coast of Southern Thailand, Phuket is the richest province in the country and one of the most visited destinations in ASEAN. It’s a favorite weekend getaway for domestic tourists, a common stop for cruise ships, and a bridge for Bangkok-bound backpackers from Malaysia and Singapore.

Must-see Attractions:

  • Islands and beaches
  • Diving spots
  • Phuket Old Town
  • Cooking classes

Other Thailand Destinations

  • Pattaya. A beach city just 2.5 hours from Bangkok, best known for its beach resorts, crazy nightlife and water sports.
  • Ayutthaya. This is Thailand’s old capital and a UNESCO World Heritage Site just 1.5 hours from Bangkok. Its map is dotted with countless ancient temples and shrines.
  • Surat Thani. Best known for Khao Sok National Park and island destinations like Ko Tao, Ko Samui, and Ko Pha Ngan, which is famous (or notorious) for its wildly boisterous Full Moon Party.
  • Chiang Rai. Another ancient city in Northern Thailand. Attractions include the stunning White Temple, the 9-tier Wat Huay Plakang, and the Golden Triangle, the area where Thailand, Myanmar, and Laos meet.

How to Get Around Thailand

The fastest way to reach another city is by flying, of course. Plane tickets in Thailand are cheap so it doesn’t hurt the wallet that much to just book a flight. But land travel offers more experience as it allows you to get a glimpse of the Thai countryside.

For intercity land travel, you might want to book your train or bus in advance especially in high season. You may use this to search. Just enter your origin and destination. Book Bus or Train Here.
