With average temperatures sticking to the high 20s (Celsius) year-round, you can plan your adventure for any time and still come back with beautifully bronzed skin. Whether you go for the wildlife, beaches, nightlife or the activities – a holiday to Thailand is an unforgettable experience that will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.
Why Holiday in Thailand?
Those looking for an exciting mate’s escape will find everything they’re looking for in Thailand too. With boat trips, snorkelling and plenty of sightseeing to do, you and your group can do all of the cultural activities throughout the day and hit the clubs at night. Patong in Phuket is one of the top nightlife hot-spots, with its buzzing party scene featuring discos, clubs and bars lighting up the streets as the sun sets.
Thinking of Thailand for a dreamy couples getaway? If the adventure, beaches and attractions aren’t romantic enough for you, Thailand offers some wonderful luxury hotels on the beachfront. Massages, fine dining and evening drinks by the sea will create the fairy-tale holiday you and your loved one have been waiting for.

Food and Drink in Thailand
If you’re looking for something to quench your thirst, cool off in the sun with cha yen, Thailand’s version of iced tea. When eating spicy food, nam manao is a great drink for cooling down your mouth, consisting of juice water and sugar. Beer enthusiasts can try Singha, Leo and Chang, or for something a little stronger, try the local rum – Sangsom.
If you’re lucky enough to be in Thailand for a long time and don’t fancy just staying in one place, island hopping is a fantastic way to discover the different culture and scenery across the country - not to mention the different beaches. Even if you’re staying in one resort, why not explore places like the Phi Phi Islands, which are easily accessed by boat from Krabi and Phuket.
Those who love to be in the water are in for a treat, as the south-east coast of Thailand is a perfect spot for diving. Look out for Manta rays, turtles and you may even spot an incredible whale shark. If you’re after a more low-key sea experience, Thailand’s crystal-clear waters are a great place to go snorkelling too!
Useful Info for Visiting Thailand
Although Thailand doesn’t have a strict dress policy, there are some dos and don’ts on respectful clothing. Make sure to pack summer clothes that will keep you cool, such as shorts, t-shirts, skirts and dresses. However, strappy tops and inappropriately revealing clothing are a no-no when in Thailand.
As the locals speak in Thai, it’s a good idea to learn the lingo before you go. To greet someone, say sa-wat dee, which means both ‘hello’ and ‘goodbye’. For ‘thank you’, say khop koon or if you need to apologize to someone (which, hopefully you won’t), the word for ‘sorry’ is khor tort. Going to the markets or catching a tuk-tuk and need to know how much it is? Gee baht is ‘how much’ and, if you need it, lot noi dai mai is ‘can you make it cheaper’.
