Thailand is a tropical country which is so mesmerizing with beautiful beaches, unique architecture sites, bustle cities and cheap shopping paradises. Followings may be useful information for your trip, if you intend to go to Thailand this holiday.
Thailand owns two distinct seasons that are wet (May to Oct) and dry (Nov to next April). Generally, you can visit the South-east Asian country all year round since its tropical climate does not bother your trip at all. However, you should go to Thailand from Nov to Feb as Travel Guides Magazine’s recommendation because that is the best time traveling and visiting most outdoor attractions as it is the most pleasant and hardly rainy when lots of highlight festivals are held, including Loy Krathong Festival (Thai’s Valentine),Songkran New Year’s Festival. If you want to enjoy a cheap trip to Northern Thailand, you should go from Mar to Jul since you can be seduced by its pleasant and moderate weather which is necessary for your itinerary; meanwhile, the central and North-Eastern zones are so hot with the temperature of up to 40oC at this period. The peak season lasts from Nov to Mar or in Jul and Aug. If you do not keen on the crowd but enjoy the silent atmosphere in Thailand or want to stay in sale off accommodations, touring in low season (Apr to Jun, Sep and Oct) is highly recommended.
It is said that you should book for airfares to Bangkok due to its bustle and attractive city with lots of big shopping malls and high-quality goods in reasonable prices. If you want to visit other tourism cities, it will be more convenient and cheaper to book the domestic airfares in advance since airlines in Thailand often have discount flights from Bangkok to others. Trains and long-route buses are also available for you and you can easily buy the train or bus tickets at tourism consulting offices or at the hotels where you are staying in. Tuk-tuk is an amazing tri-vehicle for you touring in a city in Thailand to avoid traffic jams and enjoy the best experience in tourism spots here.
