Thailand Vacation

The state in Southeast Asia, on the peninsulas of Indochina and Malacca. Borders with Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia. It is washed by the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand of the South China Sea. The north is covered with green mountain slopes and hills, in the south – magnificent beaches and picturesque islands. The highest point is the Doi Inthanon mountain in Chiang Mai province (2596m). The Kingdom of Thailand is a constitutional monarchy. Thailand is located in the southwestern part of the Indochina Peninsula and the northern part of the Malacca Peninsula, between India and China, bordering Burma, Laos, Cambodia and Malaysia. For a long time, this country was a migration, cultural and religious crossroads of South-East Asia.

Thailand Weather

There are two main types of climate in the country – the tropical climate of the savanna and the tropical monsoon. The climate of the central part of Thailand can be divided into three seasons: hot – from March to May, the temperature reaches + 42C; rainy – from June to October, the temperature is +26…+ 32C, and cool – from November to February, the temperature is +18…+ 32C. In the north of the country in the winter is cool, and at night it’s even cold, so you should take warm things with you. In the south, from March to November, it is very humid, it is better to go there from February to March. There is no single rainy season in Thailand. In August, Phuket floods, in November – Samui. However, the period of monsoons in the resorts should not be afraid: tropical showers last up to half an hour a day, and the rest of the time the bright sun shines. The velvet season lasts from November to February: the weather is dry and not as hot as in spring and summer. To the north of the country, it is better not to go in August-September: heavy torrential rains and wind will spoil the entire impression.

Bangkok awaits – travel with someone who’s lived there!

Hey guys, I lived in Bangkok for about 6 months, and am up in eastern Thailand traveling around a different part of the country. Starting in Siam Square means being surrounded by a lot of what Thailand has to offer – plenty of shopping and exploring to do. I should warn you upfront: unless you intend to remain inside a mall or your hotel, it’ll be impossible to *completely* avoid poor ...

Full moon with lots of honey

So, Koh Samui has changed completely since the last time you were there in 1998. It’s completely turisty and very much like Phuket. There is a very close alternative though. Koh Phangan. I know, you’re thinking “not the full moon party!!” That’s not what I’m going for. Not at all. You see, the north part of the island is completely different. There are a lot of ...
