It’s no secret that Thailand is a must-visit destination in Southeast Asia, but given the recent political turmoil in the country, it’s worth repeating that this is actually a great time to visit Thailand. Even though millions of tourists arrive in Thailand every year, the country still manages to deliver the great cheap food, Thai massages, amazing beaches and everything else you’re hoping for.
Prices are going up in Thailand, but it’s still a bargain. One of my favorite restaurants in Chiang Mai continues to offer their excellent Pad Kee Mao Gai for around $1.10 USD. I suggest getting here quickly, before the rapidly increasing number of Chinese holidaymakers begins to overwhelm the tourism infrastructure in the country.
Finding cheap flights to Thailand from North America can be tough. For these more expensive tickets I suggest using a cheap flight search tool like Airfare.ninja to see if they can get an unpublished fare for you. You don’t have to pay for the service unless they find you a better fare than what you’ve found on, say, orbitz.com.
Ofcourse, you shouldn’t leave this beautiful country without going crazy on shopping! Never missed visiting the Largest Market in Thailand – Chatuchak Weekend Market.
