Traveling in Thailand
Thailand is actually quite inexpensive and you can stay in the best of hotels for a reasonable price. First travel tip would be to carry some cash on you when you reach the Bangkok International airport. There is no cash machine/ATM inside the airport, so if you want to buy something and the shop doesn't accept credit cards, you're in trouble. After that when you take a taxi, make sure the driver knows exactly where your hotel is otherwise it can be a long ride.
Thai food is good and if you drop some inhibitions and get into the casual mode, try even roadside Thai seafood which can be quite delicious, but of course restaurants have a great variety. In Bangkok, take the Skytrain and go to the Siam shopping area which is too good and has a huge collection of clothes and stuff, and many items are reasonably priced, so shopping can be a great experience in Bangkok, even if you've been to Paris, London and New York for that matter.The variety and price would be the positive points here.
A day trip to Pattaya and few days in Phuket can also be a very good idea and you can collect the unique Thai souvenirs, garments etc in these regions rather than in Bangkok. If you're planning long term stay in Thailand and want a taste of the resident culture, visit Hua Hin which attracts a lot of people who want to buy property or stay long term. Enough for today....ciao
