Thailand tips

Thailand is the starting point for many Southeast Asia travelers and it was also the very first country we visited in Southeast Asia for us. Thailand is becoming more and more popular as a holiday destination and is gradually losing its reputation as a cheap backpacker’s paradise.

Thailand – the popular holiday destination in Southeast Asia

Thailand is incredibly diverse and of course offers countless dream islands and beach destinations for every taste and budget. You can still take a comparatively cheap holiday in Thailand, but at the same time you can experience an unforgettable luxury holiday there. The selection of beautiful, high-class resorts is growing, but you can still find the simple bamboo huts right on the beach.

We ourselves are big beach and island fans and like to discover new dream beaches. We had our first contact with Thailand’s islands in 2012 on Koh Samui and were very enthusiastic. Since then we have visited many more islands and there are still a few on our bucket list.

But not only Thailand’s islands, but also the impressive culture with the countless Buddhist temples fascinates us. No matter which new place we travel to in Thailand, a visit to a temple is almost always on the agenda. You too should be enchanted by the culture of Thailand.

When it comes to nature, Thailand can do even more. The north of Thailand has a completely different climate than the tropical south and there are also beautiful mountain landscapes to discover. Even if our home base is in the south of Thailand, we always like to travel north to Chiang Mai and Co.

In a nutshell: 5 Thailand facts

  • Capital: Bangkok
  • Population: approx. 69.4 million
  • Religion: Buddhism (94%), Islam (5%), Christianity (0.6%) and Hinduism (0.1%)
  • Currency: Thai baht (100 satang = 1 baht)
  • Main airports: Suvarnabhumi Airport Bangkok (BKK), Don Mueang Airport Bangkok (DMK), Chiang Mai (CNX), Phuket (HKT), Krabi (KBV)
