Thirteenth Century Thailand travel guide: Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Phoket
Thailand - one of the most favoured South-East Asian country - is growing and thriving. As soon as the day sets, the roads are brought to life with market and hawkers who sell funny jewels and serve cheap but tasty cuisine. The Land of Smiles is a place where you will never be tired.
Like any other lukewarm country, Thailand can be extreme warm and damp, so stay away from the damp summers and travel from November to February instead. I think Cathay Pacific is one of the best options: And not to forget that HKG has some of the best business and first classy lounge facilities in the business with luxury showers that are just what you need after a long distance journey and tasty pasta shops to prepare you for your three-hour journey to Bangkok.
As soon as you arrive in Thailand, you will have a lot to do. Here you can see how to get around, where to spend the night and what to do in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Phuket. Unparalleled by other parts of Thailand, the country's capitol is as urbane as possible, with multi-lane motorways, high-rise buildings and bumpers.
When you come from a big town, Bangkok feels intimate. If you want to prevent busy transport during peak hours, a complete underground system that runs through the most important parts of the town is also an options. For most of the day you will find a pop-up, tent road grocery store outside the CentralWorld Mall on the Ratchadamri Road Avenue.
For those who are reluctant to try the meal of one of the temporary accounts receivable, they can go to Eathai at the central embassy, where more commercialised copies of our rates are serving in the shopping centre underground. After a few hours of fun, we will take you to Baan Phadthai for some nice pasta dishes with crayfish.
Afterwards, make a brief detour to Lebua's roof-top Sky Hotel and enjoy a drink with a view of the town. There is no doubt that the Grand Palace is the main tourist attractions in Bangkok. At night (except Mondays), the relatively new Ratchada Train Markt not only features a wide range of outdoor catering stands, but is also a funny place to shop, with sellers who sell everything from tourist knick-knacks to antique attire.
And, if you are in Bangkok for the weekends, take a tour of the Amphawa Swimming Market for the ultimate Thai adventure. With its slender Art Deco monochrome facade, a break from the town' s sacophony, the Siam Hotel, is just far enough away from all the commotion that it is a welcome place of refuge after a strenuous ordeal.
Prior to setting off for the rest of the afternoon, begin your mornings at the hotels open-air dining area with an outdoor buffet with a view of the riverbank, drink cool water melon juices and enjoy a dish of Guy Taiwalay ( "wok-fried shallow pasta with shrimps and squid"), which is part of the room-fee. Compared to the Thai capitol, Chiang Mai will be like a country city; the place is characterised by low and shaky structures and a relatively simple structure.
Drive a little westward and you'll see a few high-rises, lovely little neighbourhoods and even, wheeze, a Mall-all hallmark that reminds of a nascent town that corresponds to a more contemporary way of life. There is something of everything for everyone here in this ecectic resort just wait to be discovered. For longer journeys, however, choose Uber, which was recently introduced in Chiang Mai and is slowly gaining momentum, or take a local and tourist mode of transport, named Songsthaews (red trucks).
When there is a court in Chiang Mai, it is Phao Soir. This is a local meal from the north of Thailand, the best shell is served at a restaurant called Kyun Yai. Cherng Doi roast chicken is another favourite in Chiang Mai. The Wat Chedi Luang is one of the most splendid churches in Chiang Mai, decorated with stony nagas and elephants around the tile stucture from the XIV centenary.
The Wat Suan Dok lies westwards of the old town, where the whitewashed moausoleums that lead to the golden bells of the Chiang Rai are reminiscent of Wat Rong Khun. If you want to be an adventurer, there is a zip line through the canopy of a luxuriant wood, wild water canoeing on the Mae Taeng River, rock leap at Grand Canyon Chiang Mai and ascent to the gooey Bua Thongfall.
However, if you prefer to go to the grocery store, visit the Maya Lifestyle Shoppingmall, a seven-storey retail center with clothing, electronic and a grocery store, followed by Think Park Place right down the road, with small stores that highlight the work of locals, and a delicious icecream store named Seasons for a ball of fruit sherbet (Kiwi apples are a must if you need a rest from the heat).
It is held around the full lunar period of the twelfth months according to the Thai schedule, usually in November. Akyra Manor Chiang Mai is the new It Shop in the up-and-coming, fashionable district of Nimmanhaemin, just south of the mainspot. The Akyra Manor Chiang Mai was opened in October 2015.
There is a roof swimmingpool and bar at your disposal if you want to enjoy a few jets or a drink during the happily hours and relax after an untiring days in the separate egg-shaped bath with a panoramic cityscape. Phuket rises with the suggestion to prohibit drinking in Bali and gets prepared to shade the beloved Indonesian islands as a top seaside resort in Southeast Asia.
Wonderful sandy areas and gorgeous resort, Phuket is the place to relax and unwind. In contrast to Bangkok and Chiang Mai, travelling in Phuket is neither as comfortable nor as cheap as in the two mentioned citys. The best thing you can do is get a rider to take you around the islands for the whole afternoon, take care of all the sights and then enjoy the sunshine in your hoteI.
Dining out on the waterside with shellfish is a must, while in Phuket and Kan Eang @Pier is one of the most favourite places, with lobsters, freshly catched game, giant shrimps in the palm of your hands and a wide range of cuurries. When you' re in the spirit for something a little more like home cooked, Raya, hidden in a Chinese-Portuguese house in Phuket Town, will meet the trail.
Praised as a Royal Thai Kitchen eatery, Blue Elephant brings Thai cooking to the next stage and serves meals such as shrimp souffle, mas ala Lamm and foie grass Tamarindenauce. Big Buddha is the most remarkable place on the Isle, but for breathtaking panorama vistas, go to Karon View Point and Phromthep Cape to take some FOMO-inducing photos.
You will be placed in the experienced hand of your guide, who will paddle you into and out of magic ocean caverns and secluded lakes, admire large mangrove trees and perhaps even see a seldom seen apes while you hear the cicada' s music. If you want some sandy areas between your feet, West Phuket is home to some of the most beautiful sands.
If you go to a nice place like Phuket, your selection of lodging is everything, and Sri Panwa is unlike any other place you can name. Begin your days with a morning snack; plan a relaxed massages in the Cool Spa; bask on the quiet beaches or in one of the two local swimmingpools when not wanting to use the balconies of your room; have a cocktail on the roof terrace in Baba Nest during sundown while enjoying an unobstructed 360 degree panorama of Phuket; and finish your nights at Baba Soul Food with a delicious evening meal.
