Thailand Travel

Thailand and Thailand travel are incredibly popular with holiday-makers and travellers and justifiably so. Many visit just for the beaches, islands, snorkelling or scuba diving but it's the culture and history of Thailand that make it one of our favourite places on the planet. Also, of course, because of the stunning, fresh, complex, light, food in Thailand.

Thailand Travel. Our guides, tips, and experiences to help you travel in Thailand.

Thailand travel is possibly the easiest in Southeast Asia because of good infrastructure and a well-worn tourist trail. Generations of travellers have enjoyed Thailand before you and paved the way in terms of facilities, transportation and accommodation.

As soon as borders open we look forward to visiting Thailand again, and we've been dozens of times, each time finding something new to add to our Thailand travel guides and blogs. You'll find them all below.

If you're looking for a general overview of travel in Thailand, our Thailand travel blog page is best. Alternatively, there is “Thailand With Kids.” if you're looking for reassurance that Thailand is an OK destination for family travel. We can only tell you that we've had very few problems in Thailand, as a young couple and as a family.

We have guides here for ancient citiesĀ  (Sukhothai is stunning), northern Thailand, Chiang Mai, Kanchanaburi, the floating markets and railway market, some beaches and islands and, of course, stunning Bangkok. One of our most-loved cities in the world.

Getting a Traditional Thai Tattoo, a Sak Yant, in Bangkok

I’ve got my traditional Thai tattoo, it’s hours old and I love it. It’s about hand-sized, in the middle of my back and it holds a deep meaning. It was created by a master Ajarn – Ajarn Neng- with a traditional metal spike. It hurt, only a little. Want to know more? There is a …

Things To Do in Kanchanaburi

When most people think of Thailand, sandy beaches with crystal clear waters, snorkelling, temples, and tropical fish come to mind. Kanchanaburi offers something different. It is steeped in contemporary history, whilst also offering a place to just relax on the River Kwai and explore the surrounding countryside.  This post is about things to do in …

Bangkok to Chiang Mai. Train, Bus, Fly?

A favourite part of any trip to Thailand, the Bangkok to Chiang Mai journey, is to be enjoyed not endured. Chiang Mai is a fantastic destination, it is cheap, relaxed, and very different from Bangkok. We highly recommend a trip to this part of northern Thailand and exploring further into the mountains if possible. There …

Proof of Onward Travel for Thailand. Do You Need It?

It’s not always Thailand, sometimes it’s Bali, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, but we’ll address Thailand in this post. First I’d like to …

Elephants World Kanchanaburi (An Easy Day Trip From Bangkok!)

Ethical elephant attractions in Thailand are a bit of a hot potato so over the years we’ve decided to just not get involved. We haven’t done anything involving elephants since back in the days when we were all OK to ride them. Then suddenly it wasn’t OK and a huge publicity campaign made elephants something …

Thailand Itinerary 2 Weeks and 3 Weeks

A reader asked me to write a Thailand itinerary for her 3 week vacation, I think it’s best to start with 2 weeks, because that’s how long most holiday makers have, and add on some optional extras as trip time allows. A Thailand itinerary is something unique to each person, one man’s dream tour is …
