Thailand Travel Guide

by our Thailand expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyFrom the traditional Siam of the ‘King and I’, modern Thailand seems to have exploded on to the western travel scene in recent years. And for good reason; from the clear blue waters of the Gulf beaches to the mountainous north with its lush orchid-dotted vegetation, virtually every kind of vacation is there. Bangkok, arguably the capital of SE Asia, has an amazing buzz like a vertical oriental market shooting up to the sky. It’s a river city – so try for a waterfront hotel. The islands, such as Koh Samui, that dot the sapphire blue waters of the Gulf offer a vast submarine and beach paradise – ‘the best diving in the world’ it’s said. Now well-known, Phuket is also an Andaman Sea island with tropical jungle often running down to the sea. (Don’t forget or forgo Thailand’s fascinating wildlife.) And try to get to the hugely different North with its mountains and classic Thai cuisine – Chiang Mai is a great centre that even offers cookery classes so your Thai curry ‘take away’ can be the knowledge of how to do it at home.
