I have a few slogan in life and one is "I live to journey". Even more uncommon is the areas that leave me a lifelong memory. Siam is unquestionably one of the rare countries that match the bill. But at other occasions, I think it's certainly one of the places that provide the best value for money.
Bangkok, as the capital of Thailand, assures a lot of excitement and surprises. Unlike one other smaller locations, Bangkok is definitely more vibrant and has plenty to shock any first time traveller. The list of draw is never-ending and the Bangkok food Road market is only one of them. The size of Chatuchak weekend market will definitely leave you impressed. It's like a giant melting-pot where you really get to enjoy the different culinary treats from distinct parts of Siam. Then there's the Tuk Tuk encounter which is unlike any other.
Apart from Bangkok, Phuket might be the most well known location in Siam. Geographically situated at the outermost expanse of the peninsula, the coastal line of Phuket is one of the best on earth. But it's the 2006 Tsunami that shot Phuket to popularity to the planet and it was for no great reason. Thanks God I was not there when the tragedy hit as I find myself seeing Siam rather regularly. If you ask me, what I remember the most about Phuket is the beach massage that I'd there. The experience of watching the sun disappearing slowly from your horizon as you enjoy a soothing Thai massage is actually one type of its own.
Chiang Mai is one place in Thailand that promises to vary from your other parts of Thailand. If you're comfortable with Siam, you'd know that most of the tourism spots are found along the coastal region which means they are mainly shore destination. On the Other-hand, Chiang Mai has a much more enjoyable and cooling weather throughout the year which is primarily due to how it lies in fairly high altitude. It is additionally occur to be quite close to the boundary separating Siam with its norther neighbors, namely Laos and Cambodia. Irrespective of the town's famed night market, you should truly spend a while seeing the border too.
It addresses such places as Krabi and Koh Samui and they are definitely areas you should not miss when you're planning your travel itinerary to the state. What's amazing is despite the big presence of tourists in the area, most of the beaches remain unspoilt and beautiful. There's barely any such place anymore nowadays. Don't forget to check the calendar to make sure that the time of your visit does not coincide with the monsoon season when you would find many attractions to be closed.
