Thailand has soared in popularity in recent years as a popular travel destination and for good reason: the land of smiles is breathtakingly beautiful, the locals here are among the friendliest in the world, and the food is incredible.
There's a large variety of things to do in Thailand. The country is globally renowned for the turquoise waters and incredible landscapes of its islands and beaches but that is not all that is to be found here.
Culture-junkies will enjoy exploring the various Buddhist temples scattered around the country -- some created with lavish color palletes and with extravagant designs such as Wat Poe in Bangkok, whose bold and bright interiors are complimented by the present of a giant reclining golden Buddha that is quite unlike anything that could be found elsewhere.
A great way to discover the culture of the places that you travel to is through their cuisine and that couldn't be more true than in Thailand. Thai food is hearty and flavorful with just enough spice to pack a punch. Classic dishes like Green chicken curry, Penang curry and Pad Thai should feature on every traveler's Thai food bucket list and can be found at local street food markets for no more than a couple of dollars. An equally fascinating insight into Thai food culture can be obtained at the many floating markets of Bangkok, such as Taling Chan floating market where locals buy their fresh vegetables and haggle with the vendors for the best prices.
In terms of the islands that make Thailand so beloved, there is an island to suit every type of traveler. Koh Phangan is known to attract a young, party crowd on account of its infamous 'Full Moon' parties, whereas Koh Tao and Koh Phi Phi are the places to go in order to relax and unwind or engage in some watersports.
Thailand has a broad variety of accommodation choices. Mid-range and luxury hotels can be enjoyed here at much more affordable rates than in the US. Those traveling on a budget or backpacking through Southeast Asia can easily secure hostel accommodation close to the main touristic sites.
The best time to visit Thailand is during the winter period or the spring. Temperatures get very hot and humid in Thailand during the summer, but furthermore, monsoon affects the country during this time making venturing around it difficult.
— I love AllTheRooms because it is not only local homes for renting, and not only hotels, but everything combined. When I am about to book a place to stay, I usually spend a couple of hours looking through both hotel sites and local home sites, comparing the prices and places.
— I love All the Rooms because instead of having to check one place for home rentals, another for hotel, another for bed and breakfasts, and yet another for a room rental in a private residence, I can finally see EVERYTHING at one site; saving me considerable time
— Like the buttons on the calendar which say today, tomorrow - that will make it easy for booking on the road. Website looks great - clean and easy to understand.
