Phra Nang Beach

Phra Nang beach is part of a small peninsula located between the city of Krabi and Ao Nang beach. Phra Nang beach is also beside Railay beach which is accessible only by boat due to the high limestone cliffs cutting off mainland access. Phra Nang Beach is one of the most popular places to visit in Krabi.

There is the famous "Princess Cave" or Tham Phra Nang Nok in Phra Nang beach. It is believed by local fishermen to be the home of a mythical sea princess.  Phra Nang beach is so spectacular that you can just lie there and soak in the sun. If you are adventurous it is possible to hike to the top of the headland to get spectacular views of the entire area. Swimming and snorkeling can also be enjoyed off this pristine, white sandy beach.

Chao Phraya River

Truly, the River of Kings ­ as King Rama I named it ­ is the lifeblood of Bangkok. And not just because of this rich history. Around 50,000 people still use its ferries to get to each day. Slow barges bearing cargo coast upstream. Kids still frolic in the russet - brown water. Wooden shacks, mottled by the elements, still lurch over the water.  

Soaring hotels and condominiums hem in solemn temples, churches and civic buildings that look 19th century European, while yards away the odd wooden sampan sells noodle soup or dried squid to hungry river workers. It is this juxtaposition of calm and chaotic, modern and traditional, religious and secular, ugly and sublime, foreign and indigenous that makes the Chao Phraya so evocative. There are many ferry trips that take you on a tour around the river.

Sanctuary of Truth (Prasat Sut Ja-Tum)

The Sanctuary of Truth is an amazing wooden building right on the beach in the Northern part of Pattaya. The building has been under construction now for more than 20 years, and it might take another 15 years before it is finished.

Floating Market Bangkok

Almost every traveller visiting Bangkok for the first time has this ardent urge to visit these unique shopping areas conducted from the traditional boats. Despite the fact that sellers are more worried about tourists as compared to local people nowadays, the floating markets of Bangkok are still heaped with tropical fruits and vegetables, ready-to-drink coconut juice and local food cooked from floating kitchens found right on the vessel. 

It might sound strange but there are different varieties of floating markets in Bangkok. While most of them begin their operations early morning at around 05:00 AM, rest remain open till noon as well.

    • Visit the Hill tribe village: Thailand is quite developed. However, there are numerous tribal villages in and around the region such as Akha, Lisu, Hmong and Karen that are quite friendly too. Visitors can visit this place and experience the lifestyle that they might not be able to obtain by staying at a 5-star luxurious resort or hotel.

    • The local festivals of Thailand: Visitors are more than welcome to join in and embrace the local festivals that take place in Thailand. Get a unique insight onto the local customs and traditions and get fascinated by events like Loi Krathong, the Thai New Year, the Naga Fireballs and much more.

  • Q. Recommended reads for destination

    Government websites : 

    Thailand Tourism

    Books on Thailand: Thailand, a travel guide, Lonely Planet Thailand.

  • Q. When is the best time to visit Thailand?

    Thailand being largely tropical is humid all year around with moderate temperate in the 28-35°C range; the mountains are where you can go for relief. The best time to go to Thailand is during the dry season that stretches roughly from November until April. There are three seasons to consider for your preferences:


    • Winter: It lasts from November to the end of February, it doesn't rain much and temperatures are at their lowest, although you will barely notice the difference in the south and will only need to pack a sweater if hiking in the northern mountains, where temperatures can fall as low as 5°C. This is the most popular time to visit and, especially around Christmas and New Year's or at Chinese New Year a few weeks later.


    • Summer: March to June, Thailand swelters in temperatures as high as 40°C (104°F), pleasant enough when sitting on the beach with a drink in hand, but not the best time of year to go temple-tramping in Bangkok.


    • Rainy: From July to October, although it only really gets under way in September, tropical monsoons hit most of the country. This doesn't mean it rains non-stop, but when it does it pours and flooding is not uncommon.

  • Q. How to reach Thailand?

    • By Plane: The main international airports in Thailand are at Bangkok and Phuket, and both are well-served by intercontinental flights. The plus point that one come across is the minimum or low range of price of the airline tickets. It is due to the various and maximum numbers of airlines that fly to Asia pit stop in Bangkok.


    • By Road: Driving up to Bangkok from Malaysia and Singapore is not a difficult task to do if you have your own vehicle to travel. Rental vehicles are mainly not preferable for long distance journeys in the country. There are some main crossings that one will come across while driving are Padang Besar and Sadao in Songkhla province, Betong in the Yala province, and Sungai KoloK in the Narathiwat province. Apart from personal drive tourists can easily get the regular travel buses from Singapore to the southern hub of Hat Yai.


    • By Train: Travelling by train is not that a preferable way of journey by many tourists as  it can be very much time taking and boring in comparison to other means of transport. Thailand contains a sole international railway service which is linked to Butterworth, near Penang, along with Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia connecting the Singapore railways as well. The tickets that are available for the travel by rail are mainly cheap, even the first class ones, as compared to other services.

  • Q. Do I need a visa for Thailand? How does one get a Vietnam visa?

    One does not need a visa to visit Thailand on vacation. Citizen of any country traveling to Thailand on vacation, not planning on staying for more than 30 days, and  haven't entered the country as a tourist for more than 90 days in the past six months, doesn’t need to apply for a visa. You'll be granted a 30-day entry permit when you arrive at the airport or border crossing. If you're planning on an extended vacation here, you can apply for a 60-day tourist visa in advance at the Royal Thai Embassy.

  • Q. What is the currency of Thailand and where can I get my money exchanged?

    • The currency of Thailand is Thai baht. The best thing to do would be to carry a Thai Baht Forex Card with you before leaving. Thai Baht as cash usually has a higher mark-up and is subject to availability in the market, whereas Forex cards loaded with Thai Baht are easily available and cost-effective. You should load the card with Thai Baht instead of USD to avoid cross-currency charges of 4%. It is recommended to buy a Forex card online before you leave for Thailand. Ensure you choose an online vendor which will let you reload Thai Baht easily, in case you run out of Forex when abroad.

  • Q. What is the local food of Thailand? Which are the best places to taste this food?

    Thailand’s food needs little introduction. From San Francisco to Sukhothai, its profusion of exotic flavours and fragrances make it among the most coveted of international cuisines. As a walk through Bangkok forcefully reminds, these flavours and fragrances are seemingly inexhaustible. However, whether it be juicy pieces of grilled pork on a stick or a fiery bowl of ‘Tom Yum’ soup, we all have to start somewhere. And what better place than our carefully selected Top 10 of Thai Food, which spans everything from staple backpacker favourites to Thai classics. You can wander the streets of Bangkok for weeks, pointing at every single thing that looks tasty, handing over a couple dozen baht, and eating until you burst, all without ever trying the same thing twice. And you'd have difficulty spending more than around $10 a day doing it. Everywhere you go, from the fancy shopping malls downtown, to the grungy streets of Chinatown, to the vast semi-outdoor markets—even in the hyper-touristy areas around the gorgeous wats and palaces in the old city—you'll find hawkers offering fresh-cooked meals, sometimes eaten straight out of hand, sometimes while perched on little plastic seats around a makeshift picnic table.


    •         Tom Yum Gong (Spicy Shrimp Soup)
    •         Some Tums (Spicy Green Papaya Salad)
    •         Tom Khan Kai (Chicken in coconut soup)
    •         GaengDaeng (Red Curry)
    •         Pad Thai (Thai Style Fried Noodles)
    •         Kao Pad (Fried Rice)
    •         Pad Krapow Moo Saap (Fried Basil and Pork)
    •         GaengKeow Wan Kai (Green Chicken Curry)
    •         Yams Nua (Spicy Beef Salad)
    •         Kai Med Ma Muang (Chicken with Cashew Nuts)

  • Q. What is the best public transport to commute around Thailand?

    Travel in Thailand is inexpensive and efficient, if not always speedy. Unless you travel by plane, long-distance journeys in Thailand can be arduous, especially if a shoestring budget restricts you to hard seats and no air conditioning. Nonetheless, the wide range of transport options makes travelling around Thailand easier than elsewhere in Southeast Asia. Buses are fast, cheap and frequent, and can be quite luxurious; trains are slower but safer and offer more chance of sleeping during overnight trips; moreover, if travelling by day you’re likely to follow a more scenic route by rail than by road. Inter-town songthaews, air-conditioned minibuses and share-taxis are handy, and ferries provide easy access to all major islands. Local transport comes in all sorts of permutations, both public and chartered.

  • Q. Do I need to have any vaccinations before the trip to Thailand?

    One should take preventive measures for Zika Virus which is a risk in Thailand. It is strongly recommended that one takes the vaccination for typhoid, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, cholera, rabies, Japanese encephalitis and influenza.

  • Q. What is the local language in Thailand and which are the most commonly used greetings?

    Thailand, and its neighbor Laos, are dominated by languages of the Southwestern Tai family. Karen languages are spoken along the border with Burma, Khmer is spoken near Cambodia and Malay in the south near Malaysia.

    Before you pack for Thailand know some commonly used phrases to get through with your trip smoothly:

    Sawat-Dee meaning Hello

    Krap and Kha, Adding krap or kha at the end of any word, phrase, or sentence makes for politeness.

     Good morning! A-roon-sa-was

    Good evening! sa-yan-sa-was

    Welcome! (To greet someone) yin-dee-ton-rab   

    How are you?   sa-bai-dee-mai

    Where is the (bathroom/ pharmacy)?   houng-num(bathroom)/ ran-kay-ya(pharmacy) .... You-tee-nai-ka/krab

    How much is this? aa-nee-tao-rai

  • Q. Which are the best shopping places in Thailand and what are they famous for?

    Of course it is the price of some goods that makes shopping in Thailand an attractive prospect, but the breadth (and depth) of what is available also proves a draw. If you are in Thailand for a short visit consider looking at these top shopping areas and places.

Although the party once began with a focus on EDM/electronic music, you'll now find lots of different music genres blasting up and down Sunrise Beach.

  • Q. Which floating markets are famous in Thailand?

    A floating market is a market that is located next to a body of water and vendors sell things directly out of their boats. Though some of the main waterways have since been filled in to make way for roads, Bangkok was once known as the Venice of Asia due to its extensive network of canals.


    •         Amphawa:Easily the most popular market with Thai locals,Amphawa is an entire neighborhood community that turns into a Disneyland-like floating market on the weekends.


    •         DamnoenSaduak: Located about 1.5 hours from Bangkok is the most popular tourist floating market in Thailand known as DamnoenSaduak. Over the weekend, hordes of foreigners flood the market on organized tours.

  • Q. What are the dos and don’ts for Thailand visit?

    One of the main reasons people travel is to explore other cultures and establish how other countries and cultures do things. It is then quite remarkable then to see people wandering around the kingdom imposing their cultural approach on the situations and events they encounter. Often these leads to confusion, worse, it sometimes leads to ugly scenes that are entirely avoidable with a modicum on insight on how things are done in Thailand. What follows then is a list of Dos and Don'ts for when you are in the kingdom:


    •         The Monarchy:The monarchy is revered by all Thais and people will simply will not tolerate any lack respect towards any members of the royal family - past or present.


    •         Religion: Thailand's national religion is Buddhism (although there are significant numbers of Muslims and a minority group of Christians) and it is very important to be respectful as far as the religion is concerned.


    •         Buddha Images: Buddha images are sacred, whatever size or condition. Never climb on a Buddha image, and be very careful about taking photos - some images are so sacred photographs are forbidden.


    •         Monks: Buddhist monks are not allowed to touch or be touched by a woman or accept anything a woman might offer. If a woman wants to give something to a monk it must first be given to a man, or put on a piece of cloth.


    •         Shoes: Do not wear shoes inside a temple where Buddha images are kept. Take your shoes off before entering someone's home.


    •         Greetings: Thais do not shake hands; they 'wai' - a gesture made by placing your hands together in front of your face a bowing a little.


    •         The Head: Whereas in the west a friendly pat on the head, especially the head of someone a bit younger than you, will be regarded as a friendly and supportive gesture, in Thailand any gesture towards the head will cause Thais to recoil and will be greeted with shock and possibly annoyance.


    •         The Feet: Whereas the head is the highest point of the body, the feet are the lowest. Do not point at things with your feet, and do not point the palms of your feet at anyone.


    •         Shouting and Shows of Annoyance: In Thailand shouting and shows of annoyance are entirely frowned upon, whatever the situation.


    •         Drugs: Thailand takes drugs very seriously and is trying to eradicate unlawful drugs entirely.


    •         General:

                    Kissing, cuddling and similar behaviour are frowned upon if in public - especially amongst older    


                    Smoking in the street is illegal - you can be fined 2,000 Baht.

                    Dropping litter in the street is illegal - the same fine applies.

                    Do not engage in purchase of wild animals whether protected or not. Aside from the moral

                 issues, punishments are very harsh.

  • Q. How is the nightlife in Thailand? Which places are must visit to experience best of Thailand nightlife?

    With its mixture of exoticism, romance, sense of adventure and plain excitement, nightlife in Thailand is unique. Of course, anyone who has never been to Thailand instantly conjures up visions of A Go-Go bars and sleazy back alley massage parlours; it’s true but not wholly representative of a country that has beautiful traditional dancing, an irrepressible culinary scene and lively bars and nightclubs. ‘One night in Bangkok’ can indeed make a hard man humble but one night in Chiang Mai can charm and one night in Phuket make you longing for more.
