Thailand Travel Guide


The high season, when the climate is cooler, runs from November to April in Thailand, with the low season between June-October covering the rainiest months. Some tourists prefer the quieter months when prices for stays and trips can be significantly lower and sunny days are only interrupted by rainy spells.


The climate in Thailand is tropical; hot and humid with a monsoon season starting in May in Phuket and September in Samui. The dry season is from November to February in Phuket and starts in December in Samui. The hot season runs from March, with April and May the hottest months.


Aside from year-round sunshine, delicious food, and friendly people, Thailand offers great value-for-money, meaning you can do more for less. If you’re looking for variety and unforgettable moments, Thailand promises incredible experiential travel opportunities.

Each destination boasts its own unique character, attractions, and activities to suit travelers of all ages and interests. Shop at night markets, enjoy al fresco dining, and watch the sunset with a breathtaking view whether coastal vistas or cityscapes.

On the must-visit list is Thailand’s glittering temples which are stunningly beautiful and give an insight into the importance of Buddhism in Thai culture. Inspiring mindfulness, Thailand’s temples are not symbols of what has been, so expect to see saffron-robed monks in many temple grounds. It is important to follow the dress code and if you know a day-out may include a visit to a ‘wat’ then bring clothes to cover legs and arms.

There are several UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Thailand and a trip that takes in Bangkok alone is a whirlwind of adventures in itself. During your time in the capital visit Wat Pho with its reclining Buddha, one of the cities many sky bars, including the newly opened skywalk, and dine on the Chao Phraya River with a dinner cruise. Outside of the city, Thailand boasts national parkland and marine parks too.

On a beach holiday, enjoy cave kayaking, and island-hopping such as exploring the 42 islands of Ang Thong National Marine Park, many of which are uninhabited. Snorkeling and scuba diving, as well as fishing and water sports, draw tourists to Thailand with PADI courses available too. There are also many international-standard golf courses in Thailand, including eight on Phuket and several on Koh Samui.

Meanwhile, one of the best ways to experience Thailand is to step away from the well-trodden tourist trail.


Thailand’s currency is the Thai Baht and there are plenty of ATMs in cities and tourist areas. Compared with many countries, taxis and public transport are reasonably priced. However, as with any capital city, staying, dining, and entertainment in Bangkok can be expensive, although mid-budget and budget travel are possible too, especially if you eat at street and market stalls.

Tip at least 50 Thai Baht for a one-hour massage, with many people leaving 100. Give taxi drivers a small tip and follow your instinct in bars and restaurants. Service is often included, and tipping rules are much more relaxed.

In the tourist areas of Bangkok you will find English speakers, but don’t expect most people working in bars, restaurants, shops, and banks, including taxi drivers, to speak anything but the basics. Once you leave the main tourist areas you’ll definitely find knowing a few words of Thai really useful.

Learn some of the most basic Thai words and phrases.


Some of the best Thai foods are found at street stalls and night markets. Must-try dishes include som tam, a spicy papaya salad freshly made by vendors in a big pestle and mortar. Eat with grilled chicken and sticky rice. Cut down spice by requesting ‘mai pet’ when ordering dishes.
