Thailand - the world's easiest country to travel to
The Danes have really opened their eyes to travel to Thailand. The country is frequently visited in the Danish winter time, when we all go home and long for sun and summer. In addition to heat and good food, a trip to Thailand has a lot to offer, and there is something for everyone, whether you are a family with children, couples or backpackers.
We have made this review article about traveling to Thailand, where you can dive into the various options to get the most out of a great trip to Thailand. In the article, there are a large number of links to articles here RejsRejsRejs. Dk and on various good travel blogs. You can see the full list at the bottom.
Thailand consists in addition to the mainland, where you will find e.g. Chiang Mai, Bangkok and Khao Lak, of small islands that Koh Jum og Koh Surin. If you are going to the beach and relaxing, you need a trip south Koh Tao and surroundings.
The trip to Northern Thailand - Chiang Mai and much more
Chiang Mai is not far away Laos og Myanmar, and there are great opportunities for unique cultural experiences on your trip to northern Thailand. The city is also perfect for shopping for locally made products.
Chiang Mai is the largest and most culturally rich city in Northern Thailand. Meditation, golf, culture and cycling are just a fraction of the things we can recommend that you immerse yourself in if you visit the area. Chiang Mai is a large city in constant growth and you can find a wealth of markets, restaurants and bars. One of the best markets is Chiang Mai Food Market.
Bangkok is a must on your trip to Thailand
In Bangkok there is one lots of options for great travel adventures. The experience you get here is very unique in comparison to the rest of the destinations on your trip in Thailand. For example, you can visit Wat Pho, one of the oldest temples in Bangkok, stroll down the backpacker street Khao San Road, and if you are deliciously hungry and have a penchant for a luxury experience, try one high tea buffet.
In addition to the vibrant city life, you can with advantage experience the city by bike. It takes place with a guide, and it is a good and fun way to see the city and at the same time suitable for the whole family.
The river Kwai is world famous and is one of Thailand's biggest tourist attractions due to its famous history. Here you can not go without visiting 'Bridge over the Kwai rivers' - known from the film of the same name - which in its time was built by prisoners of war from England, the United States and Australia when Japan occupied Thailand during World War II.
The area around River Kwai is rich in history and here there are good opportunities to experience Thailand in a slightly different way, than what you often hear and see about Thailand.
The trip to Southern Thailand - Hua Hin and much more
If you are the active type who is particularly fond of golf, a trip to Hua Hin can definitely be recommended. Your trip to Thailand can be spiced up with all sorts of activities, so you do not have to settle for lying on the beach - although of course there is nothing wrong with that part.
Relaxation in Khao Lak
Idyll and relaxation characterize Khao Lak, which is not yet overrun by tourists. It therefore gives you ample opportunity to find space on the long beautiful beaches. In addition to relaxation, you have in Khao Lak the opportunity for diving and snorkeling, and you can also go on an excursion to Khao Sok National Park.
Krabi has gradually become one of the biggest destinations for tourists. In Krabi you will find everything your heart desires, and because the area has not yet jumped on the bandwagon, where everything is decorated according to tourists, you can advantageously go there to experience the local culture, which is nice. However, this is not the place if you want to be a little alone and do not want to bump into other tourists.
Islands: Phuket and many more
Phuket is the country's largest island and many tourists go here on their trip to Thailand. The activities are countless, but you can for example go on an excursion to Phang Nga Bay and see 'James Bond Island' and the floating city. Or head south and visit Koh Racha Yai.
Koh Racha Yai is one of the most famous of the small islands and it exudes mood and idyll. The hotels are located down to the beach and consist mostly of bungalows. Although the island is not deserted, the atmosphere here can easily make you feel like you have landed in the middle of a story about Robinson Crusoe.
The island of Koh Ngai is known for long white beaches and most people go there to dive - for example, the children can snorkel directly from the beach.
Koh Jum - worth a stop on your trip to Thailand
Koh Jum consists almost entirely of two parts; mountains and cliffs to the north and flat landscape with long beaches to the south. The island is known both as Koh Jum or Koh Phu. In fact, the two names reflect the two halves of the island, which the locals care a lot about.
On this island there are a sea of possibilities, because you get both mountains and beaches. It gives you a unique opportunity to try a little of each. Mount Phu mountain in the northern half is almost 500 meters high. The mountain can be easily climbed if you are in just fairly ordinary shape.
South you can snorkeling in the clear water and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the long beach. However, there are quite a few rocks in the water around the island, which can make bathing a bit cumbersome. On the other hand, the rocks contribute to the beautiful fish often coming far inland. The island is not overrun by tourists, so this is a place where one can be allowed to experience the locals. Experience the island, for example, by renting one of the popular ones Tuk tuks.
Surin Islands is one of the most beautiful places in Thailand and is actually made into Mu Koh Surin National Park. The islands have beautiful unspoilt nature with jungle and long white sandy beaches with crystal clear water.
Koh Chang in the east
This island is amazing and there is ample opportunity to really get out and use your legs. Among other things, hiking is extremely popular. You can get away with it fantastic local guides, who know the area like the back of their hand. It is a unique way to see the island, and at the same time you get rid of Danish and Scandinavian travel guides.
It is also possible visit the island in the rainy season, and at that time there are a smaller number of tourists and lower prices.
Koh Chang can also be combined with another trip Cambodia, if you want to take advantage of the opportunity when you are there anyway.
Koh Lipe in the far south
Koh Lipe is Thailand's southernmost island and is just 30 km from it Malaysian ø Langkawi. When you arrive in Koh Lipe, the first thing you will encounter will most likely be the beach Pattaya Beach. This is where most tourists arrive by boat on their trip to Thailand.
Pattaya has a lot of activity, both from boat arrivals to the island, but also from various beach bars and restaurants where you sit right next to the water.
Koh Kood - authentic and unspoiled
Koh Kood is one of those islands that is completely authentic and unspoiled. To such an extent that there is not public transport on the island, which also has its charm.
Have a good trip on your journey to Thailand!
