Bangkok is a city of opposites: High-class shopping malls side-by-side with crowded marketplaces, 5-star restaurants shaking a block with run-down shacks, temples and spirit houses right next to stripper clubs and ladyboys. It’s an amazing mix of sights, colours, sounds and smells. Many love it, some dislike it, but what’s certain is that no one can remain indifferent to it.
Also, fascinating and diverse tourist destinations can be found a mere three to four hours’ drive away from Bangkok. There is no need to fly to the North in order to hike among waterfalls and rainforests.
Northern Thailand is a fantastic place for a family
holiday. This is the place to see rainforests,
waterfalls, the mountain tribes (The long-necked, the
long-eared, and so on) and special temples. There are
also factories of many handmade things: Umbrella-making,
woodcraft, silk factories, etc. Of course, there are
also many kinds of animals to see, and you can ride
elephants in the jungle there, too.
Northern Thailand is also an ideal place for shopping: There are markets of every kind in the big cities and the towns, great shopping malls, and the option to just drop by Burma or Laos and shop in markets there.
One of the main points of attraction in Thailand is the islands of the South. Everyone dreams of white sandy beaches, coconut trees, warm turquoise waters... Thailand effortlessly makes this dream come true. It has many islands, each with its own character and style; plenty of attractions; and many options for fascinating tours and lazy indulgences.
Here you will find information about traveling to those islands.
