One of the most famous travel destinations many people frequent is Thailand. Apart from the cheap costs, this country is also home to many beautiful tourist spots, temples, great foods, festivals, elephant sanctuaries, and much more. This country boasts about hospitable people and a culture that is warm, welcoming, and open to everyone.

Be ready for your trip to Thailand with these useful tips:

  • When is the best time to go to Thailand? They say that the best time is during the “winter months” which is from November to February.
  • If you are a beach person, the best places to head to are Phuket, Krabi, and one of the islands in the Bay of Thailand.
  • If you want to immerse in their beautiful culture, a stay in Bangkok is worth it then go to Chiang Mai to see their thousand-year-old temples and ancient forests. 
  • In the North is where you’ll find the mountains, the beaches are in the South, food and culture are in the Northeast, and in the Central Plains is where you’ll find.
  • Do not badmouth the royalty. Respect is one of the most important things in Thai culture.

  • Temples in Thailand are holy places so avoid wearing skin-baring outfits. If you do, wear a cover up covering your shoulders, chest, and knees.
  • Take your shoes off when entering temples, private homes, and even some shops and offices.
  • Thailand is a Buddhist country so respect the statues and images of Buddha. Don’t climb on Buddhas when in a temple as this is offensive and in some cases, this is punishable by law.
  • It is also offensive to touch people’s head or hair. Locals can do this but not it is inappropriate if the Westerners do it.
  • Respect monks. Among the things you should keep in mind is bowing when you meet them, not asking overly-personal questions, and never pass anything directly to them. Instead, put it down in front of them.
  • Always return the “wai” greeting.
