Holidays in Thailand are increasingly popular due in part to the vibrant culture, the inexpensive costs compared to the UK and the outstanding natural beauty the country offers. There are however certain months that are better for visiting than others. Thailand is prone to heavy rainfall and the driest time is between November and February, and the heat isn’t too oppressive at this time of year. Where you want to go in Thailand also makes a difference: the northern provinces have the hot season between March and May and the early rainy season from June to July, and these are good times to visit as the temperatures are rather modest at higher elevations. The south may be the best option though because the temperatures stay more constant throughout the year, meaning you can enjoy the sun’s warmth without being miserably hot as in the rest of the country.
Holidays to Thailand offer access to a unique destination, and that extends to transportation. One of the most popular ways of getting around Bangkok and nearby provinces is on a long-tail boat down the rivers and canals. For those who prefer land it will be a relief to know that Bangkok has the biggest city-bus system anywhere in Thailand, so enjoying a night out or going from one landmark to another should be relatively easy.
There are many hotels in Thailand and deciding where to stay all depends on what sort of holiday you’re looking for. If you want to be in the thick of the action and never without something to do, hotels in Bangkok will be ideal. If on the other hand you want a quiet retreat or a romantic getaway amidst the unspoiled natural beauty Thailand has to offer, Phuket and Ko Phi Phi would be a better option.
