    Weather In Thailand In May

    We visited Thailand in the month of May when the weather was quite humid. Generally, in this month, rainfall is expected. But thankfully, it did not rain during the day time and we were able to finish all trips without any weather issues. Also, during the day, it was quite a lovely fusion sunshine and cloudy weather. We especially cherished the time that we spend at beaches. Moreover, this lovely weather made our 6 day trip to Thailand a blissful experience.

    Some Highlights Of Our Thailand Trip

    Our trip was a perfect blend of fun, adventure and loads of happiness. Here are some of the best experiences that made our trip immensely cherishable.

    Our wonderful journey started off with a Four Island Tour in Krabi wherein we got a chance to hop around the spectacular islands via speedboat. We visited Chicken Island, Koh Poda, Phranang Cave Beach, and Tup Island. All the islands boasts their own unique beauty. We also spnt some time by Ao Nang beach. There was a beach on one side and food and market on the other side. It’s indeed a nice place to spend one evening and shop and eat. Apart from this, we also visited other beaches which were crystal clear beaches in Krabi. Containing two islands where you can walk from one island to another due to shallow waters. We also saw beautiful fishes in the water and the blue waters felt like heaven. A wow experience in all!

    2. Tiger Kingdom Phuket

    The time we spent in the Tiger Kingdom was such a surreal experience. We were glad to know that the tigers are not sedated as we’ve read what some people have written. Cat’s sleep during the day, especially kittens and when they do you can scoot them all over the house, lol. Most of the cubs were zonked out for the count so you could do whatever and they didn’t care, but when they unexpectedly wake up, lol, they may be a little annoyed with you. I was indeed a wonderful experience.

    3. Big Buddha, Phuket

    Sunset from Big Buddha

    Next we headed towards the famous Big Buddha. The view of the island from the Buddha is beautiful. It was amazing to see all the different golden Buddha. It’s a bit of a walk to see the Buddha, but when we reached the main spot, everything seemed worthwhile. Also, we passed through a small market place where we could receive blessings from the monks. It was a very spiritual part of the trip. We were able to offer good wishes for family members. It’s definitely a must see.

    4. Phi-Phi islands, Phuket

    Out of various things to do in Phuket, Big boat to Phi-Phi island itself was mind blowing. With snacks and drinks on board, the sea journey to islands becomes exciting. Phi-phi islands was undoubtedly the most important part of the whole tour. Clear waters and the blue tinting sea was what I had planned this trip for.

    Locals And Hospitality In Thailand

    We’re immensely impressed by the Thai locals and found them to be really warm and hospitable. Especially, the drivers, shop keepers, and restaurant workers were extremely helpful. Also, in a new land, we never felt that we got cheated and there was no security issue as well. All in all, the conduct and welcoming nature of the Thai people met our expectations.

    Our Personal Expenses In Thailand

    Since our meals were part of our trip, we really didn’t have to spend on food. Also, we felt that Thailand is not really expensive and would fit in a decent budget. For us, 2500 Thai Baht for a was good enough for a day’s expense. We visited various tourist attractions and also tried some Thailand street food as well. All in all, our 6 days in Thailand spend really well with the budget we had!

The best part about the restaurant was that it was purely vegetarian and also served jain food. Also, the prices were also quite affordable. Honestly, we were looking for only Indian food and luckily we found it! There was a restaurant called Rangoli just in front of Krabi Thai Village Resort. We had Punjabi food and the taste was excellent. Apart from this, the Central Mall in Phuket has many restaurants inside where one can savour a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals.

    Hotels In Thailand

    In Krabi, we stayed at Krabi Thai Village Resort (Four Star) for three nights. It is located at 10-15 minutes walking distance from Ao Nang beach, Krabi. The rooms were beautiful, clean and had all modern facilities including mini bar. We were greeted nicely by the receptionist and she offered a complementary welcome drink and face cleaning napkins on arrival. There are separate swimming areas for kids and adults. The swimming pool has a bar attached. The property has a very beautiful entrance and a nice restaurant. Travel assistance is also available in house.

    Thavorn Beach Village Resort which was a 5-star resort was our abode in Phuket for the remaining two nights. The rooms were excellent and beyond our expectations. Our room was Equipped with Bath tub in room and a jacuzzi in the ocean view balcony. You will miss almost nothing if you prefer to stay at this property. It is connected to its private beach. The hotel offered free travel to certain places in Phuket city to the guests. Swimming pool is the best part of this hotel. The inhouse restaurant serves decent quality of Thai food.
