Ready for a trip to Thailand? Good! What can be better than a Thailand Holiday, where at one go you can experience the serenity of ancient temples, visit the best of beaches and again enjoy the most exotic night life at Pattaya or buy mementos from the floating market of Bangkok! Depending on your budget, you can choose any of the Thailand holiday packages. Everything is convenient and easy here, but still you may like a few tips before you go for a Thailand holiday. So, here are five important tips for you before you book Thailand holiday packages.
There is many Thailand holiday packages that will offer you a visit to the north of Thailand because prices are relatively lower than Bangkok and the southern Thailand. So, book Thailand holiday packages that offer you exploring both southern and northern parts of Thailand. Northern Thailand’s de facto capital Chiang Mai is no less than Bangkok. While there are beautiful Buddhist temples to cater your eyes, there are night markets for you to browse clothes, jewelry, silk and accessories.
Food is really cheap in Thailand. If you stick to the local street food, you will have to spend no more than 35 to 50 THB per meal. They offer really safe food, or people would not have thronged so much in street food stalls. You will find the best tastes of Thai food on the go at the streets and it will cost you only a fraction of the cost of the restaurants.
These days when you have a smart phone with google maps to guide you through, the easiest way to save bucks is simply taking local buses and drinking local beer. An average Thai lives on a less than 7,750 THB per month in Bangkok. So, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to enjoy your holiday in Thailand.
Respect the Culture
There are a few rules particular to Thailand. Heads are considered the most sacred part of a body in Thailand. So never touch any Thai’s head. Always return a ‘wai,’ a polite Thai greeting involving bowing your head and keeping the hands in praying gesture. And, do show enough respect to monks.
Thailand is a country of temples. So, do not miss visiting the mystic temples. You can narrow down to the big-hitters like Wat Pho and Wat Phra Kaeo in Bangkok, and Wat Phra Si Sanphet in Ayutthaya.
