1) Food – Thai Delicacies that you shouldn’t miss
Thai cuisine, whether it is chilli-hot or comparatively blends, is distinct and regardless of your reason for visiting Thailand, there’s one thing you don’t want to miss: the exotic local food. We bring to you these 3 amazing highly-popular dishes that are a part of the Thai taste menus.
Tom Yam Kung
A Thai dish that is renowned worldwide and is like a symbol of Thai cuisine. It has become popular for the full flavoured spicy taste from the chili soup. It comprises chili, galangal, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, fish sauce, and lemon juice.
Tom Kha Kai
Is a local food that has a flavour similar to Tom Yam, but has a mellow aroma that is slightly sweeter, more oily, sour, and creamier than Tom Yam. It uses boiled coconut milk and does not have an over spicy or sour flavour. Thus, it has a fragrant aroma from the Thai herbs, galangal, lemongrass, and lime leaves.
This is a local food that foreigners love for its soft viscous noodles that are stir-fried with sauce and various ingredients. Thus, it has a fragrant aroma plus a sweet and mellow flavour.
2) Travel – Take an incredible journey like never before
Thailand’s myriad of priceless experiences is truly one-of-a-kind. Their value lies in not their price tag, but their unique ability to showcase the beauty and culture of Thailand – a window into the soul of the Kingdom.
You can explore the superlative of Thailand’s luxury offerings, where private beaches, hot-air-balloons, Champagne, helicopter experiences (and much, much more) are not simply offered, but served to the utmost perfection, forever surpassing expectations.
Chao Phraya Dinner and Cruise in Bangkok
Putting Bangkok’s dazzling concrete offerings aside, the flowing Chao Phraya River, the heart of the Kingdom, is the perfect place to enjoy an authentic Thai feast. The dinner cruise barge glides serenely along the river as Thailand’s royal cuisine is served up, allowing the visitor to observe local life along the country’s most important waterway.
Hot-Air Ballooning Chiang Mai
The perfect one-hour hot air balloon jaunt takes you high above the trees and hills of Northern Chiang Mai. For a bird’s eye view of the greenery as the sun rises. Wake up with a piping hot cup of coffee or tea upon arrival, enjoy the safe journey and upon landing, kick of the base other activities with a full Champagne breakfast on the ground.
Trace the coastline in a train from Bangkok
The Eastern and Oriental Express train’s Presidential Cabin is positively palatial, and enroute to Singapore takes its passengers along the coastline of Southern Thailand through Malaysia. It’s a chance to truly connect with the local culture, meeting elephant handlers, wine experts and village elders along the way, whilst still having the sanctuary of a cabin to retreat to.
Hands-on elephant camp experience
Being a guest at Four Season Tented Golden Triangle means an opportunity to engage with Thailand’s gentle giants in their natural habitat in the most personal way possible. Itineraries have been devised around elephants – from learning some basic mahout skills, feeding and caring for the animals, to going trekking through lush forests and witnessing elephant’s favourite part of the day – washing in the river.
3) Honeymoon – Find the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation
Thailand is often described as one of the world’s dream honeymoon destinations, and it’s easy to see why. What could be more romantic than jetting off to the allure of our bewitching tropical land? As honeymooners, you will find extreme pleasure at discovering one other’s passions and the endless possibilities of finding new bonding interests and experiences to embrace together.
In a country fortunate enough to have miles upon miles of pristine coastal water, aquatic pursuits are an enjoyable and romantic way to absorb the scenery at a mellow crushing flow. Come together as a team to captain your own luxury chartered yacht, with nature’s breeze gliding you along as you plot your voyage, dropping anchor to explore mystical virgin islands.
Not everyone’s idea of a honeymoon is lazing around on sandy beaches, or at the spa enjoying relaxation and the serenity of the Thai landscape. Some couples prefer to be more physically in touch with Thailand’s diverse natural scenery, and in a land that is blessed with forested mountains, sweeping jungles, and river valleys, what better environment to spend a thrilling honeymoon of adventure and excitement.
The ancient Thai Kingdom reaches far back in time, yet even today living evidence of varnished civilizations still makes for spectacular viewing and is a romantic journey into the past. Couples can relive ancient glories as they wander hand-in-hand around the impressively restored national treasures that dot the country, instilling an incredible wealth of historical knowledge.
One of the most awesome experiences you will ever have as newly-weds is the exhilaration of discovering a new underwater world in Thailand’s seas. Swim with turtles, play with inquisitive dolphins or get up close to a giant whale shark feeding away.
So when in Thailand, don’t forget to experience all of these and much more. For more information on this beautiful country or planning on an unforgettable trip visit the Tourism Authority of Thailand.
