Things You Have to Know Prior to Travel to Thailand

Over the past six years, I have travelling around the world. Among many tourist attractions at home and abroad, I like and visit Thailand for many times. It’s also known as the Land of Smiles over and over. Up to now, there have been over 40 stamps in my passport. I also would like to step down the land in the next few years. For those people who would like to travel in Thailand or already have a plan to the country, I provide all my experiences to all, so that many people could benefit from it. Almost all aspects of life staying in Thailand have been included into the blog, from things to do, food, accommodation options, itineries, weather, clothes and sun-protection measures.

Daily Essentials You Need When Visiting Thailand

In case you have no ideas on what to carry on to Thailand, the packing list would be useful to you. At first, all carry-on objects are divided in several categories, including clothes, toiletries, electronics, essential drugs, passports, etc.

The weather is changeable, so we need to make more preparations. What you should wear depends on the specific season you travel to Thailand. Perhaps you will need a jumper, swim wear, rain jacket, bucket hat, decent shoes and sandals. The weather of Thailand is hot and humid, because of its tropical climate. This is fundamentally counts for tourists from Southeast countries. The above packing list is also suitable for Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia and Indonesia. In fact, most warm clothes carried on with me are useless in Thailand. Cotton and linen fabrics work better than polyester and wool.

The Best Time to Visit Thailand

Some people may be puzzled about what is the best time? Is it necessary to avoid the rainy season? The rainy season is from July till the end of October. It doesn’t mean rainy season an absolutely no-go. Although there are heavy rains in the rainy season, its lasting time is short. In case you would like the best Instagram photos, sunny season is your best choice.

Weather Conditions in Thailand

For the sake of breeze or the ocean, one could keep cool all the time. Most people love a tropical climate, which is also critical reason to travel to Thailand. Even in the dry season, rain comes unexpectedly, therefore carrying light rain jackets in backpack is necessary.

Travel Adapter for Thailand

Thailand was the first place where I discovered multi-functional electric sockets. Almost all high-calibre places provide versatile adapters, so that all electric devices could work normally.

Vaccinations for Thailand

In my all tours to Thailand, I have never injected some special vaccines. As long as you have injected some standard childhood diseases like Tetanus, Diphtheria and Measles. I also got shots against Hepatitis A+B, but it was not for Thailand specifically.

Safety Problems

Thailand is absolutely safe for all tourists! Some may not know that army officials are in power in Thailand. But it doesn’t matter for tourists. As we all know the significance of safety, so Thailand’s government have done their utmost to safeguard the peaceful environment.

Chiang Mai

Although Thailand’s second largest city and northern Thailand’s economic center, Chiang Mai and bustling Bangkok are quite different. Here quiet sweet, is Deng Lijun’s favorite city. As the capital of the Kingdom of Lana, Chiang Mai exudes an enchanting classical temperament. The climate is cool, the four seasons flowers are brilliant, is Southeast Asia famous summer resort, is called “the north Thailand rose”.

Chiang Mai City is full of antique temple halls, white walls, red roof, golden eaves in the sun, the unique shape of the north Thailand style pagoda magnificent and unique. The monks in the temple are as gracious and friendly as the local residents, and are happy to discuss all questions about Buddhism and the history and culture of Chiang Mai with visitors.

Chiang Mai is a cultural city with a long history. But it was not until 1296 that King Mengrai of the Rana dynasty became the capital of Thailand and became the economic, cultural and religious center of northern Thailand at that time, and many temples were built to build Buddhist statues and moats to defend against the invasion of the Burmese army.

Chiang Mai was captured by Burmese troops in 1556, and the Burmese seized Chiang Mai until 1775 when King Taksin drove the Burmese troops back to the Thai-Myanmar border and Chiang Mai was retaken. Due to the Burmese army’s occupation of Chiang Mai for a long time, Myanmar’s culture, religion, architecture, language and cooking have a great impact on Chiang Mai.

In addition to its strategic location, Chiang Mai is adjacent to a branch of the ancient Silk Road in the south. Goods from China and Myanmar will be transported to Siam Bay through this trade route. The valley is wide, fertile, and rich in grain, so the Lana Kingdom was once at the heart of its politics and economy.

Between the early 18th and 19th centuries, a local monarch named “chao” nominally ruled the city. Chiang Mai was not ruled by the Siamese dynasty of Bangkok at that time, Chulalongkorn (King Ramah V) took control of Chiang Mai when he became king in 1874. Chiang Mai became part of the Kingdom of Thailand in 1939 and became the administrative center of northern Thailand.1996 Chiang Mai held the 700th anniversary of the city and celebration activities. The influx of foreign tourists in recent years is because Chiang Mai is a Thai arts and crafts center, where hand-made umbrellas, silverware and wood carvings are well-known at home and abroad.

What kind of clothing you choose to travel to Thailand depends mainly on the season and itinerary. Shorts, sleeveless T-shirts, sandals are the most practical. There are places in Thailand where dress requirements are high and people who dress too casually, especially temples or fancy hotels, are not allowed in. Loose light, good permeability, dry clothes is the best choice for rainy season travel. It is also recommended that rain drapes or umbrellas should be prepared on a regular basis. Streets can easily be flooded in the rainy season, so temples and some offices will ask you to go in after slippers, so slippers are very practical.

In addition, a sun cap is a necessary throughout the year, rain and sunny dual-purpose is the best. During the cool season, it’s a good idea to travel north, say, to Mae Hong Son or Chiang Rai, to bring a long-sleeved T-shirt or jacket. Because the cold season of northern Thailand in the morning and evening will be colder.

Beautiful and charming tropical scenery, extensive Buddhist culture, unique folk customs, the fatal attraction of Bangkok is the superposition of the above three, coupled with the perfect integration of eastern and western cultures, and the interlacing of ancient and modern time and space.

Siamese and Shilong Business Center in the center of the city is Bangkok’s modern shopping district. In addition to many shopping malls, food squares and cinemas, there are also the four facets of the Buddha and the colorful Siamese Sea World. Traditional water bazaars and weekend bazaars, located in the south and north of the city centre, are cheap, but require enough time and energy to play selectively. There are also places worth visiting in or around Bangkok. If you have plenty of time to feel the natural animal landscape of Southeast Asia, go to the wildlife park in northeast Bangkok or the Avocado Lake Zoo farther from downtown.

Bangkok used to be a fishing village, and when the dynasty began to rise, Bangkok gradually formed small bazaars and settlements. In 1782, the Bangkok dynasty Ramah I moved the capital from Tungwuli, west of the Mekong River, to Bangkok, east of the river.
