Some ideas for good plans in Thailand

To fully enjoy a stay in Thailand, start by finding the best deals on online comparators. You will surely find one that fits your budget. With a cheap flight to Bangkok or Phuket, you will be able to save money. Do the same for the hotel. After defining your destination, draw up your agenda, unless you have a guide on site. Otherwise, here are the good plans to experiment once there.

Thai dishes

On vacation, you get hungry a little more often than usual. This is the occasion or never to taste the local dishes. Moreover, the cuisine is recognized as one of the best in the world. Then the price is affordable. As the Thais do not compartmentalize the dishes as in the West, go for the single dish, a real treat for your taste buds.

Guided tours or excursions?


For your short trips, try the tuk-tuk. It is both typical and exotic. They are found everywhere in Bangkok, especially in tourist areas. On the other hand, it is advisable to negotiate the price before boarding to avoid unpleasant surprises. On average, 1km costs you 10 THB (Thai baht) where 1THB =0.022€. It is the ideal means of transport for a guided tour of the city. Most local agencies offer excursions. Feel free to haggle over prices. It is more economical to rent a scooter than to take a tuk-tuk for each trip, in Phuket as in Koh Samui. On the other hand, 2 wheels are ultra dangerous in Bangkok.

Meet the elephants

You have to go north to ride an elephant. It must be recognized that these animals are not among the best treated in the country since the "safaris" take place on their backs. On the other hand, if you want to discover them in their natural element, there are rescue centers such as the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai. You like scuba diving. The country is one of the places in the world to take your certificate.
