Thailand, Asian country with tropical climate, fantastic beaches and great food, is a magnet for travelers from all over the world. Many prolong their stay beyond the plan, and many other never leave. It’s a country that has it all, for all tastes and for all budgets: green jungles, sandy beaches with warm blue water, backpacker bungalows and luxury hotels, and one of the best cuisines in the world.

Thailand has three main weather season: cool, from November to February, when the temperatures can go as low as 55 degrees and there’s not much rain – best time to visit, especially during Chinese New Year; hot, from March to June, temperatures are around 104 F – good for time on the beach, bad for anything else; and rainy, from July to October, period of tropical monsoons.

Many visitors start their itinerary with Bangkok and the Grand Palace, home of the glorious Emerald Buddha. Contrary to the popular belief, Bangkok is surprisingly safe, and well organised even though that might not be the first impression. There are many museums where you can get an impression of traditional Thai lifestyle. And you may find the Snake House in Silom not as terrifying as one might think.

In Thailand, you can find green jungles, waterfalls, and sandy beaches. The most developed beach resorts are Pattaya, Ko Samui and Phuket, but there are others with more relaxed vibes, such as Ko Chang. In the jungle, you probably won’t see any tiger or elephant, but if you want to spend the night there, you can expect to meet deers, gibbons and all sorts of birds.

You generally don’t need to worry about bad foods and unclean kitchens, unlike other Asian
countries – it is safe to eat in the small street restaurants where you can see the chefs how prepare your food.
