It is no surprise that Thailand has become the preferred destination for all visitors to Southeast Asia. It is most likely the greatest location on the map for understanding the fundamentals of Asian culture. Imagine a nation set up for you, with paradisiacal beaches and unending smiles. It doesn’t happen every day! As a result, we’d like to share with you the reasons why you should visit Thailand during Holy Week. Yeah, there is a surprise when you read it!
Travel to Thailand with the best weather of the year
April and March mark the conclusion of the dry season, which precedes the well-known and dreaded monsoon rains. With a moderate breeze and a few rice harvests ahead, this temporary location is by far the greatest climate-wise. And it falls during Holy Week!
Travel to an ideal country to visit as a family
Here is the elephant kingdom, the kingdom of peace, and the kingdom of large-scale water warfare. As a result, in a culture where grownups enjoy themselves like dwarfs, it is hard for the tiniest members of the household not to do the same. Also, kids will be able to communicate with the elephants, escaping abuse and displaying their most compassionate side with them.
Experience the contrasts of its capital: Bangkok
You must visit Bangkok at least once in your life. Bangkok is regarded as one of the most intriguing cities in Southeast Asia, with beautiful chaos full of contrasts, where tradition and modernity coexist in the best way imaginable, producing an environment that borders on oneiric. Its majestic Grand Palace, the famed Reclining Buddha, or simply getting lost in the lanes of Chinatown with the world’s most famous street cuisine are just a few of the thousand reasons to pack your luggage and head to the airport right now. Doesn’t it smell like a trip to Thailand?
Get lost in the temples of Ayutthaya
The historic capital of the Kingdom of Siam is a World Heritage Site and one of the country’s most prominent tourism and cultural attractions. The city, which is located 80 kilometers north of Bangkok, was devastated and burned by the Burmese army in 1767 AD. Did you know it was never rebuilt in the same location? As a result, only the remains of what was once the capital of a vast empire exist today. His interest, though, is exactly at this point. “Ruins are a gift, ruins are the route to change,” Julia Roberts stated in “Eat, Pray, Love.” Discover for yourself on a voyage aboard a genuine teak boat while dining on a delectable Thai meal.
Hallucinate with the landscapes of Chiang Mai
This metropolis, which translates as “new city,” is one of the largest in northern Thailand. It is popularly known as “The Rose of the North,” and it is bordered by the tallest mountains in the country, as well as some of the gorgeous temples you will ever see, such as Wat Phra Singh and Doi Suthep, which is noted for its amazing gold-plated Chedi.
Stepping on paradise on its postcard beaches
The beaches of Krabi are a great spot to conclude your journey. These beaches with turquoise waves surrounded by stunning limestone structures that appear to rise from the heart of the sea are an excellent depiction of the traditional Thai scenery and will make you feel like you’re part of a colorful postcard. Because a vacation to Thailand would be incomplete without a boat ride across the country’s gorgeous islands.
Try one of the best cuisines in the world
Thai food is one of the most delicious in the world due to its variety and perfect balance of tastes. It is characterized by intensely flavored meals in which spices and spiciness are the protagonists. It is considered the tastiest gastronomy in Asia.
Rice, as in the great majority of Asian countries, is a staple that should never be overlooked. It would be a shame to visit Thailand and not taste one of the many variations of Pad Thai, the main dish of Thai cuisine, or a delectable Khao Soi, a creamy curry soup distinctive of northern Thailand.
Thailand is usually a success due to its postcard beaches, a culture rich in history, a city where tradition and modernity coexist, and one of the greatest restaurants, but… if it also coincides with the Songkran Festival, the celebration of its new year, you may enjoy a truly authentic experience.
