Magical place called Thailand

The kingdom of Thailand, once known as Siam, is located in Southeastern Asia. Thailand is a country with rich history and what makes this country unique compared to other countries in the region is that they have developed their own culture independent of European colonist influence.

Tourism is another thing that makes this country popular. One of the reasons why tourists choose Thailand is that there are many high quality hotels offering their services for lower prices compared to other countries.

In the 80’s this part of the world developed an image of place where you can find good hotels for cheap price. This trend is also present nowadays and there are many hotels in Thailand that are regularly in the top 100 hotels in the world. Besides well known capital Bangkok, which has grown into a modern metropolis, tourism expansion is noticed in several other regions in the country.




Bangkok, the modern and very humid Asian metropolis, covers an area of around 560 km² and is well known for many tourist attractions. Although the city is fairly urbanized, you can feel the traditional Thai culture in every corner of the city. Contemporary skyscrapers, wide avenues and new overhead rail system will impress everyone. Bangkok is rich with many different attractions from museums, shrines, art galleries and many historic buildings (for those who are eager to  learn something more about Thai culture) to countless bars, restaurants, clubs, multi-language cinemas.


The islands


Phuket is the largest island in Thailand and one of the most popular holiday destinations in Asia. It is located in the warm Andaman Sea in the Indian Ocean. We’ve mentioned exclusive hotels previously and Phuket is the place where you can find most of these hotels. The whole island is tourist-oriented and it’s hard to walk on the streets without getting an offer for boat trip, bungee jumping, riding on elephants or a trip to the small island of Phang Nga where a James Bond movie was filmed (also known as James Bond island). Another nearby island is Koh Phi Phi Don well known for its long white sandy beaches, probably the most beautiful ones in whole Asia.

The island of Ko Phi Phi Leh can be visited for a short trip but you can’t stay there because it is a national marine park and protected area.


It will take time to discover the magic of Thailand so we assure you that once you visit Thailand you will want to visit it again!

Shop around Thailand and never find yourself stopping!

Shopping is one of the prime activities which every tourist to Thailand is excited about. For every reason, Thailand is one of the most popular shopping destinations for visitors. Let’s have a look at the most popular ones which would help you figure out where to shop, what entity to buy, and in what way the tour of Thailand could be an enchanting shopping experience like never before. Right from the boutiques of the capital city, Bangkok’s interconnected mega-malls to the bustling Thai night markets, shopping in Thailand is an experience as well as a bargain. Here is a mosaic of an opinion.

The most widely known Bangkok’s district among young and tight-budget travelers is the Khao San Road. It is a short street located near the Grand Palace at a 10 minutes walking distance. Truly, Khao San Road certainly has everything a single backpacker would need: a plethora of cheap accommodations to stay at, a raft of delightful restaurants and bars offering quality –elite and international cum local foods and drinks, several money exchange counters, tour operators to help in trouble hours and to plan visits in remote areas of Thailand.

With its very convenient location, it is easy for travelers staying on Khao San Road to get around the town on foot or bicycle, visiting Bangkok’s fascinating cultural landmarks like The Grand Palace, Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Wat Po, the City Pillar Shrine, the National Museum and the National Gallery. Doesn’t it present to you the most magnificent of shopping-roaming experience? I don’t doubt it.

My second most preferred location to go shopping in Thailand is Pratunam. It has been Bangkok’s largest wholesale neighborhood for centuries, decades before there’re those Platunum, Paladium and Shibuya 19 wholesale malls. The area at one corner of Petchaburi and Ratchaprarop roads might look dodgy from the outside but the real trading activities are taking place behind the street-side shop-houses. You pay a visit and dazzle yourself with the bustling activities. Going inside, you’ll find almost everything in fashion apparels from printed t-shirts to trendy jeans at best ever bargained prices (I’d call it min-blowing) for wholesales in purchase. Due to this, not only individual travelers but the traders also flock to this place and pay for the offerings to be sold Thailand wide. But I must add here that, if you are going to buy fewer than a dozen or twenty pieces of something, shops at wholesale malls across the street would offer relatively suitable deals, though unable to compare with Pratunam wholesale prices at every aspect involved.

So, the next time you visit Thailand, do not forget to take a tour around these places and find yourself in love with the shopping fiesta which is at display, or at sale I should say!
