Thailand

Crazy deal Krabi and Phuket

The legendary Thai hospitality only seems to add to the sunshine of its tropical beaches and the golden colouring of its gabled temples. With a menu that revolves around the maxim of infusing sweet and sour with the spicy and sweet and dishing out some plump seafood seared with chillies with the striking pungency of lemongrass and a whole explosion of fresh local ingredients, your trip down its eating out districts whether you are in its capital Bangkok or downtown Phuket, is going to appease your soul. A capital as fast paced and edgy as Bangkok will be the perfect precursor to your journey into Thailand. From an invigorating Thai massage, to shopping for curios at a night market and experiencing a breathtaking nightlife with some innovative concoctions and live music, Bangkok can leave you dizzy with its eclectic offerings. Whether it is kayaking or diving you wish to pursue in the emerald waters of Krabi or simply watch the traditional boats harboured on the white sands of the Phi Phi Islands, expect a vacation that is utterly engrossing without burning a hole in your pocket.

The Thai street life : Heavy on food, there is no leaving Bangkok without slurping down the Bangkok street-style noddles around the corner on a busy street with the traffic whirring past on one side and glass skyscrapers looming overhead on the other. It is not just the traditional Thai cuisine, you have every possible international cuisine here rendered to perfection using the local produce across its restaurants, cafes, bistros and patio bars. Whether you are ordering food, at a currency exchange or trying to strike up a bargain with a souvenir seller, don’t let the language barrier come in the way. A bit of attentiveness, some humour and a dash of smile can go a long way in getting you around the Thai capital as well as winning favour and friends. Stroll down the narrow lanes of Chinatown and tuck into a bowl of prawn wanton soup or chance upon a rendition of the Chinese opera. Pick up some fascinating artifacts from the Amphawa Floating Market that has come up on a canal by the same name on the Mae Klong river. For a unique perspective, you can do boat or bike ride through it. The boat noodles is a popular must-have in Amphawa. Bangkok’s Sukhumvit area is perfect to let your hair down and sip some cocktails at a tony bar from the top of a high-rise and watch the world go by. Despite the contradictions Bangkok offers with its hypermarkets and mega malls on one hand and traditional River huts on the other, it is a city that is as dynamic and cosmopolitan as it gets.

The Thai beaches : The high-point of a Thailand holiday package is the beaches. Whether you are a backpacker, a couple, a large group, a family travelling with a child, or a luxury seeker, it is easy to get some powdery white sands between your toes in Thailand. A pristine coastline, secret coves, limestone karts jutting out of an azure sea make it a veritable paradise to pursue some swimming, snorkelling, diving, sea cave exploration and a resort-life that centers around its sandy beaches. Krabi’s sea cliffs with their tropical vegetation are extremely popular with cliff climbers, just as surfing enthusiasts make a beeline for Koh Lipe, kite-boarders for Hua Hin, and divers choose the depths of Koh Tao to spot whale sharks among other exotic marine species. For beach bums, the party scene of Phi Phi Islands is unprecedented, but if it is holistic healing you are looking at while being privy to some stunning coastal scenery, Koh Samui is your retreat. Your days made spectacular by some memorable sunsets and an endless serving of succulent and crunchy deep sea delights.
