A Blend of Southeast Asia
Throbbing with life and lights, the capital city of Thailand, Bangkok, is where a host of Southeast Asian cultures collide. The city is an incredible mixture of traditional and modern, old and new, Thai and Chinese. There's always more than meets the eye when it comes to exploring Bangkok and if there is one thing this busy metropolis will teach you, it is how to look beyond the surface.
Celebrating the every day
The Thai's discerning eye for observing rituals means that every day modern living is often infused with a sense of the sacred, bringing together facets from many different Southeast Asian cultures. In November, when the season is most pleasant for travel, the Thai come together for Loi Kathrong, a stunning celebration of the Festival of Light, a public holiday varying according to the full moon and recalling its Indian counterpart. In February, locals celebrate Wan Trut Chin or the first day of the Chinese New Year, which usually varies according to the Chinese calendar. Before the monsoon season of June to November, April 13th to the 15th sees the advent of Songkran, the Thai New Year. With a host of traditions to choose from, it seems incorporation and cooperation is a hallmark of Bangkok.
Bangkok: the essentials
Travelling to Thailand is a journey best undertaken with a bit of foresight and plenty of planning. Not only is there an incredibly rich culture to capture but a few points to note for travel ease. Travellers benefit from booking vaccination appointments in their home countries for hepatitis A, typhus, tetanus, diphtheria, rabies and malaria prophylaxis. Passports must be valid for 6 months from the date of entry and visas can be applied for on entry for tourist visas of 30 days or less under the Visa-On-Arrival rule. It's important to remember that visitors must be able to show proof of a return flight booked, funds of at least 10,000 THB per person and be prepared to shell out a small fee of 1,000 THB which is payable upon entry to the country.
Painting the town red
Getting around the city is best with public transport but brush up on your Thai beforehand because it's a little hard to navigate with the language barrier. Or else, opt for a ride in a traditional tuk tuk (rickshaw).
