Thailand

Whenever Thailand is mentioned, flashes of richly adorned temples, lush nature scenes, delicious food stalls and restaurants and paradisiacal beaches appear in our minds. 

We would like to add to that list: vibrant nightlife scenes, endless shopping opportunities, blissful massages, stunning luxury hotels and resorts, trips on the back of an elephant, the list is endless. But apart from these clichés, Thailand is a country where you feel truly welcome and that is something 'the Land of Smiles' is proud of and enhances day by day.

Please note: Electronic cigarettes are prohibited by law (and as such illegal) in Thailand. If an E-cigarette or any of its paraphernalia is detected in your luggage by Customs or if you are caught in the act of smoking or being in the possession of an E-cigarette during your stay, you risk a hefty fine and may even face imprisonment!!

Hotels & Meals

Thai cuisine blends five fundamental tastes: sweet, spicy, sour, bitter, and salty. Some common ingredients used in Thai cuisine include garlic, chillies, lime juice, lemon grass, and fish sauce. The staple food in Thailand is rice, particularly jasmine variety rice (also known as "hom mali" rice) which is included at almost every meal. Thailand was long the world's largest exporter of rice, and Thais domestically consume over 100 kg of milled rice per person per year. Over 5,000 varieties of rice from Thailand are preserved in the rice gene bank of the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), based in the Philippines. The king of Thailand is the official patron of IRRI.

Then it's warmer and you get, usually at the end of the day, hard but short rain showers. On the island of Koh Samui the rainy season runs from November to January. Up North you can count on cool temperatures during winter.
