This Southeast Asian country is one of the most devoutly Buddhist countries in the world. One top pick for vacationers is the Vegetarian Festival which runs October 18th - 26th. Cities such as Bangkok, Trang and Krabi decorate the streets with yellow banners announcing the vegetarian vendors. In Phuket Town, the festival steps it up a bit where entranced marchers turn themselves into human shish kebabs. This is definitely a site to see, but one that may not be suitable for little ones. Travel to Ko Tao to swim with the mighty whale sharks. This coral-reefed island is a beach paradise. Then, take a bus ride to Sangkhlaburi. This border outpost in the craggy Karst Mountains is far from the regular tourist trade, but the road to the hazy lake from Kanchanaburi is one of Thailand's best kept secrets and absolutely beautiful! Before leaving Thailand, attend a cooking class in Chiang Mai. Learn from the locals about Thai herbs and spices and tour a local market to purchase the items fresh. There is a wide choice of classes; this is not something that you will find anyplace else in the world!
Every major airline in every country flies to Thailand. Simply pick your travel dates and go to the web site of any major airline to easily book your flight. Most flights will fly into Bangkok, but you may also opt to fly into Chiang Mai or Phuket. Some routes fly into Phuket with no layover in Bangkok.
Depending heavily upon tourism, Thailand has 30 airports that offer scheduled service on commercial airlines, though most flights will connect through Bangkok. The seven international airports are Don Mueang International in Bangkok, Chiang Mai International in Chiang Mai, Chaiang Rai International in Chiang Rai, Hat Yai in Hat Yai/Songkhla, Phuket's International, U-Tapao International in Rayong/Pattaya and Udon Thani's International Airport. 28 regional airports or airstrips throughout Thailand accept small commuter planes or helicopters.
Thailand's domestic aircraft operators are licensed by the Thai civil aviation authorities. Prices are highly competitive and commuting to just about anywhere from Thailand is easy. The Thai government's loose restriction on air fares and the competitive nature of the business make Bangkok one of the cheapest cities in the world to fly out of.
The rainy season in Thailand is July through October, which makes it the most economical time to visit. Air fare and hotel rates are deflated so as to attract more visitors. Though the rainy season gets a bad rap, it's actually a pretty nice time to be in Thailand. The temperatures are cooler, it is much less crowded with touristy traffic and everything is lush and green. There are also many package deals to choose from that will offer hotel, transportation, side trips and even transportation. Combining a package deal with a tour may net you the ideal vacation at the perfect price.
Thailand is one of the most desirable destination vacations for families, honeymooners, or corporate getaways. Thailand is often referred to as a 'golden land' for good reason. Its ambiance gives off a unique glow. Travel, dining and entertainment are ridiculously inexpensive compared to many destinations and the citizenry of Thailand welcome visitors with open arms. This getaway will soothe your body and soul.
