The Best Places to Visit in Phuket, Thailand

Thailand is a wonderful exotic country! The largest island of Thailand is Phuket. It is located in the Andaman Sea, which is located in the Indian Ocean. This is a great place to relax. A heaven for tourists who love just to lie in the sun and for active recreation. Excellent hotels, real estate Phuket and the magnificent white sand beaches will remain in your memory for a long time. The hospitable people of Phuket are always happy to receive tourists.

 

The name Phuket is translated as "mountain" and it's actually very similar to the green mountain, which rises in the Andaman Sea. The significance of Phuket to Thailand since ancient times is very great. After all, it is considered a commercial and a cultural center. Many historical monuments have survived to the present day. So do not miss the chance to see them.

 

The Temples in Phuket are astonishingly varied and beautiful. I would like to mention the details of the temple of Wat Hong Prat. That it contains a large statue of Buddha. Its more than once that the Burmese army attacked and tried to dig out of the ground and carry it. But they failed. Another amazing place is Wat Chai Tararam considered the most popular in Phuket. After all, there is a stone of Buddha. The structure, which houses the bone, called the "chedi" is often searched by tourists.

 

Speaking about the island of Phuket, I would like to also mention the Forest Park Khao Phra-Theo. There are two beautiful waterfalls: Tonsai waterfall and Bangpe. They are the ornament of the park. The Park Khao Phra-Theo is a real jungle and it is found in many exotic animals and birds. Brought from other places, the traumatized monkeys get good treatment here. Especially for them, the park is conducting a program to adapt to new conditions of life. Framed by white sandy beaches washed by the warm waters of the Andaman Sea,

 

Phuket is considered to be a tropical paradise. Here are some of the most magnificent beaches in the world and the best resort hotels. Phuket offers a diverse vacation - from simple bathing in the sun before sailing, scuba diving, traveling on the sea in a canoe to playing golf.

 

Phuket is the largest island of Thailand, the pearl of the Andaman coast. Located on the south-west of the country, 862 kilometers from Bangkok (70 minutes by Thai Airways), Phuket is one of the most prestigious resorts in the world, famous for the exotic nature, white coral beaches, rich marine life and the most exquisite sea food in Thailand. The best season for holiday in Phuket is from late October till April. From May to late October monsoons bring south-westerly winds from the tropical rains, which, however,are quickly replaced by sunny weather. This period is the best for windsurfing, so that if you are not afraid of occasional rain Phuket is waiting for you in summer.


The Best Places to Visit in Thailand

Thailand has a rich and colorful culture and many exotic monuments and stunning beaches, which attract millions of visitors each year, from all people with a minimum budget to those who can afford to indulge in luxury. The country is often called the "land of smiles", because here there are more people smiling than in any other part of the world. Only in Thailand you can take a cruise on a converted rice barge, you can scream upstream in a boat or bamboo raft, you can go into a dizzying journey and you can stay in jungle tree houses or homes of villagers floating on the river. Equally memorable are the trails leading deep into the rainforest past cooling waterfalls and beautiful endless white sand caressing the translucent sea.

 

Do not miss the dynamic city of Bangkok, with its futuristic buildings juxtaposed against the glittering Grand Palace. Early morning, monks dressed in robes leave the sanctuary of temples to receive alms from the people or in a dusty village or on crowded city streets. Here Buddhism is a way of life and, with the respect people have for the monarchy, a dynasty that has maintained an independent country for centuries, resulting in a blend of tradition and contemporary living. His Majesty King Bhumibol is the longest reigning monarch in the world, having come in 1946. With the end of absolute monarchy, Thailand moved towards democracy, but this was thwarted by the military, who staged coups in protest at government policies. The latest blow came in September 2006 when a bloody revolt overthrew the Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and replaced him with an interim prime. Thailand has surpassed the economic collapse of 1997, SARS, avian flu and the devastating tsunami in December 2004 to become a popular destination for tourists, with its many natural beauties and rich cultural heritage. Thailand is a tropical country, so it's warm all year round, but the best time for tourists is from November to March during the dry season.

Gastronomy

 

Thai cuisine is famous for the way that balances the five fundamental flavors in all meals and dishes - spicy, sour, sweet, salty and bitter (optional). Thai cuisine which includes specific four main regions of the country - North, Northeast (Isan), Central and South America. The cuisine of each region is influenced by neighboring countries of that region. Thai dishes include plenty of fresh, not dried herbs, spices and fish sauce. Nam pla is a fish sauce, flavored, which is found in almost all dishes. It is widely used and shrimp paste. Thais are accustomed to eat so much rice at every meal even. Most of them consider sandwiches not a meal but a snack. Also, locals do not really sit at table, because, especially children and teens eat when hungry. If you do meet a Thai, you may be wondering "gin khao yung" every time you meet, meaning " did you eat ?" or better said "have you eaten rice?". If you visit Thailand and stay at a local family take care not too eat too much, your body will get fat.

 

History

 

Thailand existed as several small states since 1000. Influenced more by India, Burma and Khmer people, the region was quickly engulfed in Buddhism. By 1350 the kingdom of Siam was created. At a distance of more than two centuries the Portuguese arrived, along with other Europeans, dealing with trade or were missionaries. Siam avoided European colonization but was forced to cede control of more distant areas (portions of Malay, Laos and Cambodia) France and Great Britain. Occupied by the Japanese in 1941, Siam declared war on the United States and Great Britain, while secretly monarchy suppressed resistance movements against the Japanese. During the Vietnam War Thailand was significant especially for the U.S. Army. Attracting investors and tourists, Thailand developed until 1996, when the military government triggered a decline in the economy.

 

Tips

 

The royal family is highly esteemed in Thailand, which must be respected by visitors. Locals are concerned with the public manifestations of anger as a fact and creates a very humiliating public image. It also discourages emotional manifestations gender and touching a person's head or your foot to straighten, it is a lack of good manners. Take care of your shoes before entering someone's house or a temple.

James Bond Island - a popular attraction in Thailand in The Best Places to Visit in Thailand
James Bond Island -  a popular attraction in Thailand

Thailand has a rich and colorful culture and many exotic monuments and stunning beaches, which attract millions of visitors each year, from all people with a minimum budget to those who can afford to indulge in luxury. The country is often called the "land of smiles", because here there are more people smiling than in any other part of the world. Only in Thailand you can take a cruise on a converted rice barge, you can scream upstream in a boat or bamboo raft, you can go into a dizzying journey and you can stay in jungle tree houses or homes of villagers floating on the river. Equally memorable are the trails leading deep into the rainforest past cooling waterfalls and beautiful endless white sand caressing the translucent sea.

 

Do not miss the dynamic city of Bangkok, with its futuristic buildings juxtaposed against the glittering Grand Palace. Early morning, monks dressed in robes leave the sanctuary of temples to receive alms from the people or in a dusty village or on crowded city streets. Here Buddhism is a way of life and, with the respect people have for the monarchy, a dynasty that has maintained an independent country for centuries, resulting in a blend of tradition and contemporary living. His Majesty King Bhumibol is the longest reigning monarch in the world, having come in 1946. With the end of absolute monarchy, Thailand moved towards democracy, but this was thwarted by the military, who staged coups in protest at government policies. The latest blow came in September 2006 when a bloody revolt overthrew the Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and replaced him with an interim prime. Thailand has surpassed the economic collapse of 1997, SARS, avian flu and the devastating tsunami in December 2004 to become a popular destination for tourists, with its many natural beauties and rich cultural heritage. Thailand is a tropical country, so it's warm all year round, but the best time for tourists is from November to March during the dry season.

Thai cuisine is famous for the way that balances the five fundamental flavors in all meals and dishes - spicy, sour, sweet, salty and bitter (optional). Thai cuisine which includes specific four main regions of the country - North, Northeast (Isan), Central and South America. The cuisine of each region is influenced by neighboring countries of that region. Thai dishes include plenty of fresh, not dried herbs, spices and fish sauce. Nam pla is a fish sauce, flavored, which is found in almost all dishes. It is widely used and shrimp paste. Thais are accustomed to eat so much rice at every meal even. Most of them consider sandwiches not a meal but a snack. Also, locals do not really sit at table, because, especially children and teens eat when hungry. If you do meet a Thai, you may be wondering "gin khao yung" every time you meet, meaning " did you eat ?" or better said "have you eaten rice?". If you visit Thailand and stay at a local family take care not too eat too much, your body will get fat.

 

History

 

Thailand existed as several small states since 1000. Influenced more by India, Burma and Khmer people, the region was quickly engulfed in Buddhism. By 1350 the kingdom of Siam was created. At a distance of more than two centuries the Portuguese arrived, along with other Europeans, dealing with trade or were missionaries. Siam avoided European colonization but was forced to cede control of more distant areas (portions of Malay, Laos and Cambodia) France and Great Britain. Occupied by the Japanese in 1941, Siam declared war on the United States and Great Britain, while secretly monarchy suppressed resistance movements against the Japanese. During the Vietnam War Thailand was significant especially for the U.S. Army. Attracting investors and tourists, Thailand developed until 1996, when the military government triggered a decline in the economy.

Khao Lak, a quiet seaside resort in The Best Places to Visit in Thailand
Khao Lak, a quiet seaside resort

Thailand has a rich and colorful culture and many exotic monuments and stunning beaches, which attract millions of visitors each year, from all people with a minimum budget to those who can afford to indulge in luxury. The country is often called the "land of smiles", because here there are more people smiling than in any other part of the world. Only in Thailand you can take a cruise on a converted rice barge, you can scream upstream in a boat or bamboo raft, you can go into a dizzying journey and you can stay in jungle tree houses or homes of villagers floating on the river. Equally memorable are the trails leading deep into the rainforest past cooling waterfalls and beautiful endless white sand caressing the translucent sea.

 

Do not miss the dynamic city of Bangkok, with its futuristic buildings juxtaposed against the glittering Grand Palace. Early morning, monks dressed in robes leave the sanctuary of temples to receive alms from the people or in a dusty village or on crowded city streets. Here Buddhism is a way of life and, with the respect people have for the monarchy, a dynasty that has maintained an independent country for centuries, resulting in a blend of tradition and contemporary living. His Majesty King Bhumibol is the longest reigning monarch in the world, having come in 1946. With the end of absolute monarchy, Thailand moved towards democracy, but this was thwarted by the military, who staged coups in protest at government policies. The latest blow came in September 2006 when a bloody revolt overthrew the Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and replaced him with an interim prime. Thailand has surpassed the economic collapse of 1997, SARS, avian flu and the devastating tsunami in December 2004 to become a popular destination for tourists, with its many natural beauties and rich cultural heritage. Thailand is a tropical country, so it's warm all year round, but the best time for tourists is from November to March during the dry season.

History

 

Thailand existed as several small states since 1000. Influenced more by India, Burma and Khmer people, the region was quickly engulfed in Buddhism. By 1350 the kingdom of Siam was created. At a distance of more than two centuries the Portuguese arrived, along with other Europeans, dealing with trade or were missionaries. Siam avoided European colonization but was forced to cede control of more distant areas (portions of Malay, Laos and Cambodia) France and Great Britain. Occupied by the Japanese in 1941, Siam declared war on the United States and Great Britain, while secretly monarchy suppressed resistance movements against the Japanese. During the Vietnam War Thailand was significant especially for the U.S. Army. Attracting investors and tourists, Thailand developed until 1996, when the military government triggered a decline in the economy.

A heaven for tourists who love just to lie in the sun and for active recreation. Excellent hotels, real estate Phuket and the magnificent white sand beaches will remain in your memory for a long time. The hospitable people of Phuket are always happy to receive tourists.

So do not miss the chance to see them.

 

The Temples in Phuket are astonishingly varied and beautiful. I would like to mention the details of the temple of Wat Hong Prat. That it contains a large statue of Buddha. Its more than once that the Burmese army attacked and tried to dig out of the ground and carry it. But they failed. Another amazing place is Wat Chai Tararam considered the most popular in Phuket. After all, there is a stone of Buddha. The structure, which houses the bone, called the "chedi" is often searched by tourists.

 

Speaking about the island of Phuket, I would like to also mention the Forest Park Khao Phra-Theo. There are two beautiful waterfalls: Tonsai waterfall and Bangpe. They are the ornament of the park. The Park Khao Phra-Theo is a real jungle and it is found in many exotic animals and birds. Brought from other places, the traumatized monkeys get good treatment here. Especially for them, the park is conducting a program to adapt to new conditions of life. Framed by white sandy beaches washed by the warm waters of the Andaman Sea,

Pattaya- the  center of sex tourism in Thailand

Thailand has a rich and colorful culture and many exotic monuments and stunning beaches, which attract millions of visitors each year, from all people with a minimum budget to those who can afford to indulge in luxury. The country is often called the "land of smiles", because here there are more people smiling than in any other part of the world. Only in Thailand you can take a cruise on a converted rice barge, you can scream upstream in a boat or bamboo raft, you can go into a dizzying journey and you can stay in jungle tree houses or homes of villagers floating on the river. Equally memorable are the trails leading deep into the rainforest past cooling waterfalls and beautiful endless white sand caressing the translucent sea.

 

Do not miss the dynamic city of Bangkok, with its futuristic buildings juxtaposed against the glittering Grand Palace. Early morning, monks dressed in robes leave the sanctuary of temples to receive alms from the people or in a dusty village or on crowded city streets. Here Buddhism is a way of life and, with the respect people have for the monarchy, a dynasty that has maintained an independent country for centuries, resulting in a blend of tradition and contemporary living. His Majesty King Bhumibol is the longest reigning monarch in the world, having come in 1946. With the end of absolute monarchy, Thailand moved towards democracy, but this was thwarted by the military, who staged coups in protest at government policies. The latest blow came in September 2006 when a bloody revolt overthrew the Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and replaced him with an interim prime. Thailand has surpassed the economic collapse of 1997, SARS, avian flu and the devastating tsunami in December 2004 to become a popular destination for tourists, with its many natural beauties and rich cultural heritage. Thailand is a tropical country, so it's warm all year round, but the best time for tourists is from November to March during the dry season.

Thailand existed as several small states since 1000. Influenced more by India, Burma and Khmer people, the region was quickly engulfed in Buddhism. By 1350 the kingdom of Siam was created. At a distance of more than two centuries the Portuguese arrived, along with other Europeans, dealing with trade or were missionaries.

Phang Nga Bay - Spectacular  Place in Thailand

Thailand has a rich and colorful culture and many exotic monuments and stunning beaches, which attract millions of visitors each year, from all people with a minimum budget to those who can afford to indulge in luxury. The country is often called the "land of smiles", because here there are more people smiling than in any other part of the world. Only in Thailand you can take a cruise on a converted rice barge, you can scream upstream in a boat or bamboo raft, you can go into a dizzying journey and you can stay in jungle tree houses or homes of villagers floating on the river. Equally memorable are the trails leading deep into the rainforest past cooling waterfalls and beautiful endless white sand caressing the translucent sea.

 

Do not miss the dynamic city of Bangkok, with its futuristic buildings juxtaposed against the glittering Grand Palace. Early morning, monks dressed in robes leave the sanctuary of temples to receive alms from the people or in a dusty village or on crowded city streets. Here Buddhism is a way of life and, with the respect people have for the monarchy, a dynasty that has maintained an independent country for centuries, resulting in a blend of tradition and contemporary living. His Majesty King Bhumibol is the longest reigning monarch in the world, having come in 1946. With the end of absolute monarchy, Thailand moved towards democracy, but this was thwarted by the military, who staged coups in protest at government policies. The latest blow came in September 2006 when a bloody revolt overthrew the Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and replaced him with an interim prime. Thailand has surpassed the economic collapse of 1997, SARS, avian flu and the devastating tsunami in December 2004 to become a popular destination for tourists, with its many natural beauties and rich cultural heritage. Thailand is a tropical country, so it's warm all year round, but the best time for tourists is from November to March during the dry season.

History

 

Thailand existed as several small states since 1000. Influenced more by India, Burma and Khmer people, the region was quickly engulfed in Buddhism. By 1350 the kingdom of Siam was created. At a distance of more than two centuries the Portuguese arrived, along with other Europeans, dealing with trade or were missionaries. Siam avoided European colonization but was forced to cede control of more distant areas (portions of Malay, Laos and Cambodia) France and Great Britain. Occupied by the Japanese in 1941, Siam declared war on the United States and Great Britain, while secretly monarchy suppressed resistance movements against the Japanese. During the Vietnam War Thailand was significant especially for the U.S. Army. Attracting investors and tourists, Thailand developed until 1996, when the military government triggered a decline in the economy.

Samui – Fabulous Island in The Best Places to Visit in Thailand
Samui – Fabulous Island

Thailand has a rich and colorful culture and many exotic monuments and stunning beaches, which attract millions of visitors each year, from all people with a minimum budget to those who can afford to indulge in luxury. The country is often called the "land of smiles", because here there are more people smiling than in any other part of the world. Only in Thailand you can take a cruise on a converted rice barge, you can scream upstream in a boat or bamboo raft, you can go into a dizzying journey and you can stay in jungle tree houses or homes of villagers floating on the river. Equally memorable are the trails leading deep into the rainforest past cooling waterfalls and beautiful endless white sand caressing the translucent sea.

 

Do not miss the dynamic city of Bangkok, with its futuristic buildings juxtaposed against the glittering Grand Palace. Early morning, monks dressed in robes leave the sanctuary of temples to receive alms from the people or in a dusty village or on crowded city streets. Here Buddhism is a way of life and, with the respect people have for the monarchy, a dynasty that has maintained an independent country for centuries, resulting in a blend of tradition and contemporary living. His Majesty King Bhumibol is the longest reigning monarch in the world, having come in 1946. With the end of absolute monarchy, Thailand moved towards democracy, but this was thwarted by the military, who staged coups in protest at government policies. The latest blow came in September 2006 when a bloody revolt overthrew the Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and replaced him with an interim prime. Thailand has surpassed the economic collapse of 1997, SARS, avian flu and the devastating tsunami in December 2004 to become a popular destination for tourists, with its many natural beauties and rich cultural heritage. Thailand is a tropical country, so it's warm all year round, but the best time for tourists is from November to March during the dry season.

So do not miss the chance to see them.

 

The Temples in Phuket are astonishingly varied and beautiful. I would like to mention the details of the temple of Wat Hong Prat. That it contains a large statue of Buddha. Its more than once that the Burmese army attacked and tried to dig out of the ground and carry it. But they failed. Another amazing place is Wat Chai Tararam considered the most popular in Phuket. After all, there is a stone of Buddha. The structure, which houses the bone, called the "chedi" is often searched by tourists.

 

Speaking about the island of Phuket, I would like to also mention the Forest Park Khao Phra-Theo. There are two beautiful waterfalls: Tonsai waterfall and Bangpe. They are the ornament of the park. The Park Khao Phra-Theo is a real jungle and it is found in many exotic animals and birds. Brought from other places, the traumatized monkeys get good treatment here.
