Thailand (ประเทศไทย), officially the Kingdom of Thailand (ราชอาณาจักรไทย) is a country in Southeast Asia with coasts on the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand. It borders Myanmar (Burma) to the northwest, Laos to the northeast, Cambodia to the southeast and Malaysia to the south.
With great food, a tropical climate, fascinating culture and great beaches, Thailand is a magnet for travellers the world over.
Thailand is the country in Southeast Asia most visited by tourists, and for good reason. You can find almost anything here: thick jungle as green as can be, crystal blue waters that feel more like a warm bath than a swim in the ocean, and food that can curl your nose hairs while tap dancing across your taste buds. Exotic, yet safe; cheap, yet equipped with every modern amenity you need, there is something for every interest and every price bracket, from beach front backpacker bungalows to some of the best luxury hotels in the world. And despite the heavy flow of tourism, Thailand retains its quintessential Thai-ness, with a culture and history all its own and a carefree people famed for their smiles and their fun-seeking sanuk lifestyle. Many travellers come to Thailand and extend their stay well beyond their original plans and others never find a reason to leave. Whatever your cup of tea, they know how to make it in Thailand.
Phuket Island guide is designed to use on offline when you are in the so you can degrade expensive roaming charges.

We make great, interactive travel guides.
To make our guides we use the content that is freely available. Open content sites like Wikitravel, Wikipedia, World66 and Openstreetmap are among the best resources for any traveler. Our mission is to make that content relevant for you. So we mix and mash and annotate - and we distill great, relevant travel guides out of it.
We like open content. In fact some of us were involved in World66, one of the first open content travel guides on the web. Triposo's travel guides are very much a re-mix of open content out there.
Currently we're using content from: Wikipedia, Wikitravel, World66, Open Streetmaps, DMOZ and Chefmoz
We're big fans of these projects. If you stumble across some inaccurate information in this guide, we would appreciate

Where in the world?
The Paradise Koh Yao, Boutique Beach Resort and Spa is set in the middle of Thailand's Phang Nga Bay National Reserve area, an emerging hidden treasure which remains one of the world's best kept secrets. Since its discovery by a western traveler back in the 19th century, this geological wonderland teeming with indigenous plant and animal life has captured the imagination of the world.
Phang Nga Bay’s towering limestone crags never fail to stimulate speculation of massive geological upheavals in ancient times. It is visually stunning to say the least and yet there is so much more below the surface: under the azure crystal waters are coral reefs, living fortresses evolved over countless years.
Both the common buildings (reception, spa, etc.) and the lodging are light structure buildings in natural neutral colors. The bungalows are very open, allowing the sea breeze through and enhancing the connection to the surrounding natural environment. The main living area easily becomes an open, covered (for shade) seating area. At night or for that afternoon nap, the bedrooms can be left open or closed-off for a decadent dose of air-conditioning. The bathrooms are semi-outdoor for that touch of nature feel.
Featuring materials such as wood, tiles, stones and hand-plastered white walls, the architecture is contemporary with a tropical accent. Seventy lavishly appointed studios and villas offer king size and twin beds and maximum connection to our stunning environment— open to nature while uncompromising in their comfort.
Koh Yao Island is set into the heart of these incredible natural phenomena.
The Paradise Boutique Resort subtly blends with the unique Phang Nga Bay environment. The Paradise Koh Yao Noi Boutique Beach Resort & Spa is truly one with the surrounding landscape— the resort walkway wraps around a lagoon and a small rice paddy, through rubber tree plantations, along the beach and up looking over the resort and bay. The abandoned rice paddies towards the Northern tip of the island, together with the existing trees and plants, were preserved and incorporated into the landscape design.
But the lush landscape is much more than a backdrop to the resort’s contemporary design— nature takes the clear lead in the overall look and feel of the resort. Another principal design element is the lighting which, both for interiors and exteriors, enhances the natural beauty of the resort development.
Now, the fishermens’ huts have long gone, as the region lures sun-worshippers and hedonists in their millions every year. A seemingly unlimited flow of dollars fuelled the local economy which for decades wasn’t as careful as it might have been about the rapid development and free-for-all glitz and glamour which drove the city’s progress, but more recently, it is striving to position itself as a more family-friendly destination.
Nowadays, the nearby temples of the Pratamnak Hill look down on a bustling metropolis, packed with hotels, stores, high-rise apartment blocks, bars and restaurants. Pleasure-seekers revel in the nightlife, with its pulsing beat, and head for the beaches of Naklua, Pattaya and Jomtien by day.
Broadly speaking, the city is divided into several regions. Central Pattaya offers countless shops and restaurants, and plentiful nightlife, but is definitely not for those in search of a quiet night’s sleep. Likewise, South Pattaya, which encompasses the word-famous Walking Street, a tourist attraction in itself, which draws foreigners and Thai nationals alike, primarily for the after-dark entertainment. This is also the City’s red-light district, and go-go bars and brothels line the street which runs from the south end of Beach Road to the Bali Hai Pier. However, Walking Street also includes seafood restaurants, live music venues, beer bars, discos and sports bars and has an impressive collection of neon signs for those who want to be where the action is.
There’s no escaping the hurly burly in Pattaya, but if you’re looking for a slightly more peaceful experience, you’ll head to one of the beaches. Pattaya’s beaches are everything expected of Thailand’s famed beaches. Gorgeous, clean and well facilitated. Jomtien is popular with package tour operators and families, whilst if you head up to Naklua and North Pattaya you’ll find that although there are still plenty of bars and restaurants, the entertainment isn’t quite as relentless. If you seek out the more remote corners of Naklua you may even get a hint of the region’s traditional history as a fishing town. Few tourists bother, but for traditionalists, it’s worth a visit.
The tropical climate divides the year into three, from November to February the air is warm and dry, getting hotter and more humid through to May, and the rainy season runs from June to October.
Overall, Pattaya is not for the faint-hearted, or those in search of solitude or a cultural experience, but it will reward the laid-back traveller with just a hint of a spirit of adventure.
When approaching the city from the air (there are regular connecting flights from Bangkok at very reasonable rates) the golden roof of the Wat Prathat temple on top of the Doi Suthep holy mountain are among the first things that catch the eye, and a sight that is likely to be remembered for a long time.
However, there are ways of approaching Chiang Mai and see even more - much more in fact, as the journey lasts some eight hours – and that is by train. Using the local buses is not recommended; roads are narrow and traffic unruly. Once safely arrived in the city, you can choose to explore it on foot, as the city centre is quite compact, or to go in local style, either in so-called Tuk-Tuks, a kind of motor-powered rickshaw, or by Songthaew, an open pick-up truck with seats. Seasoned travellers advise giving preference to the Tuk-tuks.
This 700-year old city, which is also called ‘The rose of the north’, is still steeped in traditional Thai ways and customs and offers a wealth of experience to the traveller.
Inhabited by a colourful mixture of northern mountain tribes and the northern Thais, or kon mueang, which consider themselves to be the ‘true’ Thais; it has retained much of their cultural values and traditions across the centuries. The friendliness in this city is legendary, and as a visitor you could not wish for more gentle and polite hosts.
Although Chiang Mai is the second largest city in Thailand after Bangkok, it only has about 5% of Bangkok’s population, making it an ideal escape from the busy hustle and bustle of the capital.
Despite the unavoidable modernisation of recent years, the charming and laidback city provides plenty of tranquil spots and literally hundreds of splendid teakwood temples, a wealth of unspoilt tradition and a multitude of other sights such as a moat and bustling street markets.
As a result, Chiang Mai is not only popular among tourists, but also among the Thai themselves, who in summer seek refuge from the sweltering heat of the south. There are also highly recreational hot springs in San Kampaeng, only 45 minutes from Chiang Mai, which offer a unique bathing experience and recreational huts for the perfect relaxation.
There is also plenty of excellent shopping to engage in: Chiang Mai lives up to its reputation as the Thai centre of traditional handicraft and art and there are high-class silk, wool, silver and pottery products to buy and to admire.
Even the more adventurous tourist will find plenty to keep you busy, from adventure trips to the national parks, waterfalls and elephant riding to river rafting and trekking in the mountains to the north of the city.
It is a combination of old and new country. This city truly shows the respect they have for their traditions along with their coming into modern day society.
In every way you look at it, this truly is the capital, as this is where the Royal family lives as well as being the main location of the government and administration.
It is the major center for industry, commercialism, and financial activity. It's the main port and it's inhabited by roughly 1/10 of the United Kingdom. Bangkok is located at the Chao Phraya River, which flows into the Gulf of Siam.
The proper name of the capital Bangkok is Krung Thep, or City of Angel when translated. It is thought of as the heart of this place, spiritually, physically, and symbolically.
When you first arrive in the city there is an impression that Bangkok is a progressive metropolis due to the skyline composed of high-rises, condos, hotels, stores, and malls. This is just one of the appealing things about Bangkok.
This city is indeed the most exotic capital in all of the Orient. Even though Bangkok is a progressing city, the people of Bangkok have never forgotten the traditions, which made Bangkok this wonderful place.
Among the 400 various Buddhist temples, you are confronted with much inspirational splendor, much of which allows you to see the achievements made in art.
There is so much more to discover than what you see at first. There are the major attractions, but there are some places that are known less. One place is Wat Ratchabophit. It's ornamentation and layout with numerous monuments is a place to visit. Another place overlooked often is Bangkok's Grand Palace as well as National Museum, and Wimanmek Throne Hall, as well as Jim Thompson's house.
You can get true insights into the culture and rich history if you explore the historical Chao Phraya River. There are so many things to see and visit because there is still much of the past, which influences this culture along with modern advances. The people join together their love for the past as well as their enthusiasm for the present and create this wonderful place.
One of the true joys for those inhabitants is food. They have very spicy and rich foods. The national specialty foods are fish, crabs, lobster, and shrimp. They also have other places to eat besides those serving the foods mentioned above. Dining in Bangkok is indeed a treat! There is anywhere from fancy, sit down restaurants all the way to curbside food places. There is something for anyone's tastes.
Bangkok Temple of Dawn from Thailand Photo Library Another way the Thai's enjoy life is their entertainment as well as their nightlife. There is something for everyone in your party. You can see a classical Thai dance as well as have cocktails in a lounge. There are even discos for those who enjoy the sights and sounds of disco.
The most popular sport that has spectators in Thailand is Thai kickboxing (Muay Thai). Thai Kickboxing requires participants to use feet, knees, elbows, as well as fists that are gloved. Most nights of the week in one of the stadiums, you could see one of these matches. While visiting you really shouldn't miss it. It's really exciting to not only witness the match, but also the sights and sounds around the ring.
If you wish to partake in something of a high-class nature, then you will want to visit the Thailand Cultural Center, which has just recently opened. You can witness performances of dancing, music, and even drama. The other places you can possibly catch a show would be at some of the top rated hotels.
Cruise Asia Ltd. was incorporated in Thailand in early 2003 to develop and operate an up-market river cruise operation on the inland waterways of Thailand. The cruises would open up an unexploited market for larger river cruise ships operating in Thailand. Initially we are targeting the scenic Kwai Noi River but in the mid-term we are looking to develop additional cruises on the Mekong River using Chiang Saen in Thailand’s Chiang Rai province as a base for cruises to Laos and to China.
The countenance of the river reflects sunlight and cloud, dawn and dusk; ever-changing images which induce relaxation, and appreciation for finer things. There could hardly be a nicer place to build a resort, and a therapeutic spa.
The Legend Chiang Rai Boutique River Resort & Spa provides an ideal combination of facilities, including a professionally managed spa, a well-equipped meeting and seminar room, ideal for small to medium-sized groups; a 200 square metre infinity swimming pool with spectacular river views, and a variety of restaurants to suit all tastes.
This ensemble is contained in tree-shaded gardens, fringed with tropical flowers, cooled by ponds and streams, and loved by butterflies. Many visitors use The Legend as a luxurious base for exploring the surrounding countryside, for there is much to see and do. Conversely, an increasing number of guests who have already seen all the sights return to The Legend just for a complete rest, far away from it all, and rarely leave the sanctuary of hotel.
The Riverside Terrace, or Ou Kao Classic Thai Restaurant, is The Legend's main restaurant with beautiful river views—perfect for breakfast or a relaxed dinner. Your alternative is the Suan Chainam BBQ Restaurant and Beer Garden.
Our Indonesia Travel Guide includes a Travel Guide on Bali, Lombok, Jakarta and Yogyakarta.
The evocative skyline of this mysterious city, basks in glory along the banks of the great Mekong River. Flashes of color, burning intrigue and romance, flutter against an edgy backdrop of the reverberating street life, the ever present buzz of motorbikes fill the air, along with the heady scent of spices and fare from the busy market stalls.
The haunting combination of opulence alongside tremendous poverty, never fails to overwhelm, nor captivate your fullest attention. A scintillating combination of pandemonium and charisma, Cambodia will grab your heart and soul and never let go.
Here are a few good ideas to consider. Massage in Vientiane is one of the favorite things to do for any visitor. The sensory delights you find in this part of the world are hard to find elsewhere. Lao-style massage available in Vientiane is surely going to help getting rid of any tiredness you may feel. The interesting thing is that this massage also combines Thai acupressure techniques and Swedish oil, making it gentler compared to traditional Thai massage.

The weather in Surin is relatively typical of the region, with peak temperatures nearing 40 degrees C in April to May, and a rainy season beginning in May and peaking in September. The best times to visit are from October until March.
Surin has many attractions, but the most excitement centers around elephants. Surin is home to the Surin Elephant Village, where the mahouts live closely with their charges, almost like family. This goes hand-in-hand with the biggest event of the year in Surin, the Surin Elephant Round Up.
The Round Up is held in the 3rd week of November annually, but if you’re interested, book tickets early for the festival and for accommodation, as tickets for both get steadily more expensive and hard to find as the date approaches. During the festival, you will see elephants in parades, playing football, tug-of-war, and reenacting famous battles from years past. The festival is based on the long-standing reputation of the Surin elephant trainers, including the founder of the city, a legendary master of war elephants.
On the border with Cambodia, you will also find the Chong Chom checkpoint border market. The open air market hosts a wide variety of souvenir-worthy items, as well as daily essentials for the locals.
If Khmer ruins are on your to-do list, be sure to see Phanom Rung, the largest example of Khmer architecture in Thailand. The site is built on top of a dormant volcano, and the elevation provides excellent views of the surrounding countryside. The temple, dedicated to Shiva, was built in the 12th century, but the site itself was considered sacred ground long before that. The carvings on display at Phanom Rung are exemplary.
Restaurants are easy to find in Surin. For Euro-centric fare, stop in at Farang Connection. The menu offers a wide selection of imported and domestic beers. Breakfasts are a specialty and run the gamut from light (eggs, toast, and coffee) to the extravagant (the enormous “Man Sized” English breakfast – good luck finishing it all!). Oasis is a Norwegian owned eatery with an extensive pizza menu to complement their Norwegian and Thai main dishes. For local cuisine, try Sumrab Tornkruang or Larn Chang.
Nightlife can be a little easier to find in Surin, as compared to some of the other cities in Isaan. The restaurants mentioned above, Farang Connection and Oasis, are a great place to start, or to stay for that matter. Heading out from these establishments, check out the variety of local clubs and karaoke bars. Tawan Daeng comes highly recommended, with an excellent local band. Saren Pub is the current spot for the younger, upwardly mobile local set. Enjoy!
