Where to go in Thailand?
Quick guide for what city that we recommend to visit
For a good time spent in each city I think 3-5 days is good for observing around. Many bloggers already explain and give more information in each destination. As I work with Canadian too. This is a destination I recommend to visit.
- Chiang mai , Chiang rai , Lampang
- Khaolak or Krabi
Lets me tell why I recommend those places.
Why Canadian should visit Bangkok ?
Bangkok is a city that hard to skip. why ? This is the easiest place to get more option of arrival, flight and departure flight. And if you look often enough, you can get a good ticket flight rate. I know that Bangkok well known as a traffic jam. I am not saying that you should come to see traffic jam. There is something cool here that worth visit.
- First, 400 temples that are very interesting to see.
- Cheap Food , that you will love it here.
- Culture and history are in the Grand Palace and Ayutthaya world heritage that you can make and extension too.
- Floating market, which is sound touristy for most so called traveller, But you do not have this in America Convenient.
Just know the meaning for Sukhothai means, you will love to come. Sukhothai means the dawn of happiness. Cool name right. Visitor can enjoy easy sightseeing by grab a bike and observe the world heritage. Another way to enjoy the time in Sukhothai is to visit an organic farm. Riding on the back of a buffalo is a little adventure and working in rice field will make you know the farmer life better.
Visit small village to make gold or take part in a village to do craft work . Do you like this kind of authentic experience when visits Sukhothai?
Why Chiang mai , Chiang rai , Lampang ?
This is a city in the north of Thailand, which is totally different from central and southern part of the country. Those three cities is very near one another, but you can select to spend more time in different place as you like
I want to give a guideline as table for comparison of different point of interest
In the middle
Yummy local food
Number of Tourist
Old houses in city
Hill Tribe village
Flight arrival/ departure = easy to access and connect to other destination
I hope you like my comparison of three cities. And I hope this will not lead to confusion and it can help to pick the right destination to visit the north of Thailand.
Why Khaolak or Krabi ?
I love this beach town which is less busy and easy to rich beautiful marine national park.
What can I bring to Canada?
A lot of things in Thailand you can bring back to Canada. The Buddha image is not souvenir and when take out from Thailand you need permission. Thai people are really serious about the misuse of Buddha statues and put to impropriate area.
