Thailand Itinerary – 10 days to sample the paradise!

Thailand – The Grandeur!

Thailand is a paradise in the South East Asia, you may not want to part with on your return! The country has bluish green waters, white sandy beaches, misty mountains, river cruises, Mui Thai boxing, famous night markets that draw their curtains at dawn, beautiful floating markets for the early risers, shopping for the needy and the rich, the china town, historical temples, Grand palace and the list goes on and on… You would be amazed by the Infrastructure – the roads, the high rise building, the malls; the food – street food, farm fresh fruits and the sweet cold tender coconut; and the green countryside.Drawing a Thailand Itinerary is a unique experience and could never be generalized!

What’s your traveling type?

I would never forget my first trip to Thailand. It was an exhilarating trip and i was hardly interested to fly back. I was crazy enough that i was hunting for jobs in Thailand in the online portals. Thai at Don Muang Airport and all my way back by flight! Well, have learnt to move on…

You would need to figure out the kind of Thailand you want to explore – Adventure (Diving, Cycling etc.,), Foodie, Night Life, Laid back holiday on the mountains or the beaches etc.,

You could couple few places of your interests. Debutants should plan a Thailand itinerary of at least 10 days to sample the Thai culture, Food, Night life & the rest.
