Intro :: Thailand Southeast Asia

Thailand is definitely one of the most popular destinations for travelers in Southeast Asia. For many it’s because of the fantastic islands and beaches for sunbathing and diving in southern Thailand, others prefer the northern part of the country for the renowned jungle treks to minority tribes or the discovery of lost civilizations at several historical sites. And of course there is Thailand’s dazzling capital Bangkok with its many attractions and you just might stay some more days than you originally planned.

Bangkok - Capital City of Thailand


Bangkok, the lively capital of the kingdom of Thailand with its old Buddhist temples and modern shopping temples, the futuristic sky train and the ubiquitous tuk-tuk (three-wheeled motorbike passenger transportation), the orange-clad monks and the fashionable transsexuals and transvestites, in one corner the helpful ever-smiling Thai and in the other the greedy tout ready to rip you off, delicious spring rolls and diabolically spicy noodle dishes.

Sukhothai Historical Park

Sukhothai was the first capital of the emerging Thai kingdom and became a rival to the neighboring Khmer empire at Angkor. Nowadays many temples, stupas and Buddha statues are scattered in an enclosed historical park and its surroundings. Bicycles are an excellent way to get around this vast area of interest.

Jungle Trekking Northern Thailand

The lush river valleys and mountains in northern Thailand are good trekking territory even though personally I was somewhat disappointed and found trekking on the Malaysian peninsula and Borneo much more rewarding. Anyway, plenty of travel agencies are glad to help you organize your trip in Chiang Mai. Many include elephant rides, river rafting and bamboo rafting which are all good fun.
