Thailand

Land of Smiles! Thailand Always Amazes You!

Lying at the heart of Southeast Asia, the Kingdom of Thailand stretches from the Shan mountains in the north, through the lush rice field covered central plains, to the tropical paradise beaches of the Andaman Sea.

One can find almost anything in Thailand: spectacular scenery, amazing natural diversity, rich cultural heritage, fantastic cuisine, activities galore, fascinating history, and smiles everywhere!

The country provides visitors with jungles as green as they get, world-class beaches at crystal clear seas with dazzling coral reefs, majestic waterfalls, and rugged mountains. The national parks, marine parks and wildlife sanctuaries are not only inhabited by elephants and monkeys, also the elusive gibbon, bears and whale sharks can be seen.

Thailand is the only nation in Southeast Asia that was never colonized by western powers during the past few centuries. As such, Thailand is probably the most ‘Asian’ country in the region. Thai culture is heavily influenced by Theravada Buddhism. Temples resplendent with gold and easily identifiable with their ornate, multicoloured, pointy roofs are abundant. Thailand retains its
quintessential ‘Thainess’, with a culture and history all its own and a carefree people famed for their smiles and their fun-seeking sanook lifestyle. The country is also home to a mosaic of exotic hill tribe cultures, for example the Karen, Lisu and the Hmong, that often retain their animism beliefs and traditional lifestyles.

The food alone is reason enough for a journey to Thailand. Thai cuisine, or better said, the various regional Thai cuisines, places emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components, and is known for being rather spicy. Balance of the five fundamental taste senses, detail and variety are important to Thai cooking. The infamous "tom yam goong", "phad Thai", and "som tam" are merely examples of how Thai cuisine has been well embraced worldwide. With an unlimited array of various dishes to choose from, one never gets bored eating in Thailand.

No matter what one is looking for, it can be done in Thailand! Whether it is trekking in the mountains, shopping till you drop in endless luxury malls, scuba diving amongst thousands of colourful fish, the best spa treatments in the world, becoming an elephant trainer, or enjoying the delicious Thai food on a local market – the country has it all. Thailand is a truly amazing paradise!

When To Go

Thailand has a tropical climate and temperatures typically range from 19 to 38 degrees Celsius. Three seasons can be observed, with some geographical differences.

From November to the end of February is the cool season, with practically no rain and temperatures at their lowest. In the mountains in Northern Thailand warm clothing is required during the night time, since temperatures can drop below 0°C. Daytime temperatures range from 20 to 35°C, with low humidity. With such pleasant temperatures, low precipitation and humidity levels, the cool season is the ideal time to visit Thailand.

From March to May is the dry season, during which boiling hot temperatures can reach 45°C. In March parts of the country suffer from heavy smog due to the burning of rice fields. April has the hottest temperatures, but also hosts the Thai New Year, also known as Songkran, which is best described as a crazy, fun, no-mercy waterfight!

The rainy season officially starts in May and ends in October. However, real tropical monsoon rains only fall in September. This doesn’t mean it rains non-stop. Most often a storm hits at the end of the day, and when it does, it pours. During the dry rest of the day, travelling is very pleasant. Thailand’s jungles are at its most luxuriant in the rainy season.

The southern, coastal regions of Thailand, which include Koh Samui and Phuket, know only two seasons: rainy and dry. The Andaman coast (Phuket, Krabi, etc.) has the dry season from November to April and rainy season from mid-April to October. On the south-east coast on the Gulf of Thailand (Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao) most rain falls between September and December.
