    We have all heard about the Land of Smile and why do you think, Thailand is called that? Its all because of the locals who are every so smiling and friendly. The locals are really warm and friendly in the country which made our trip easier. We met a great family while we were in Phuket near our hotel. The family helped us in exploring the city. I must say that the people in Thailand are quite welcoming and hospitable.

    2. Island Hopping And The Adventure Element Of Our Trip

    Thailand is adorned with islands and if you are visiting the country, I would suggest that you should definitely explore the famous islands. A fun boat ride to the mesmerizing Phi Phi Islands is an experience that should be on your itinerary. The beaches are all clean and are really beautiful. While basking in the sun and relishing a terrific cocktail, we also enjoyed the charming views at Phi Phi Islands. Another island which we visited was the Coral island. If you are an adventure junkie like us, Coral Island surely deserves a spot on your to-do list. Located in Pattaya, Coral island will offer you a lot of adventure activities which was the highlight of our vacation as we are all crazy about tropical beaches and water sports.

    Pattaya is known for its Walking Street and how could we have missed that? Pattaya is gorgeous and we loved it. Walking street is all about lip-smacking street food, refreshing drinks, and a thrilling nightlife. On our vacation, we enjoyed all three of them at the Pattaya city in Thailand and we had a gala time there. We also visited the iconic Patong beach which turned out to be as beautiful as we have seen it in movies.

    4. An Encounter With The Tigers And Dolphins In Phuket

    Our day spent in Phuket was made memorable when we visited the Dolphin Bay and watched the adorable dolphin shows there. Dolphin Bay is one of the most famous tourist places to visit in Thailand. Visiting a city and exploring its wildlife is a must. We went to the Tiger Kingdom in Phuket and clicked a lot of instaworthy pictures with the Tigers. Phuket was all about exploring the wild side of Thailand and we loved it.

    5. Pampering Ourselves With Traditional Thai Massage

    had explore the city all over

    The relaxing Thai Massage is quite well-known throughout the world and we decided to give it a shot. I would really like all of you to try the Thai massage once in your life for sure. The Thai massage will help you relax and rejuvenate your soul and body. After our massage we felt really calm and composed.

    Shopping And Food In Thailand

    According to me and my friends, there are not a lot of items that you can buy as they are really expensive. Thailand is known for its electronic market and you can buy cheap electronic products and leather items on your vacation in Thailand. You can also buy Thai beauty products and perfumes as they are quite cheap in cost. As far as the food is concerned, we really liked the coconut water and fruits salads available everywhere. If you are a nonvegetarian, your vacation will be filled with delicious street food but if you are a vegetarian, you will have to survive on fruit salads.

    Dos and Don’ts For A Thailand Vacation

    All I would suggest everyone who is planning a vacation to Thailand is to carry food like Maggie and dry foods. Thailand has a huge variety of food for the non-vegetarians but if you are a vegetarian, you ought to carry food items which you can have on your vacation. Another thing which you should do as soon as you reach the airport is to buy a local sim. If you want to save money on your vacation, then you should buy daily items like water from the 7-Eleven stores.
