Bangkok is the most visited city in the world.
“Same same, but difference”- this phrase is used to sum up almost anything in Thailand. Lively traditional markets and exquisite golden temples– where you’ll be immersed in the daily life of locals as it has existed for centuries– are found side by side with soaring glass skyscrapers, fashionable rooftop bars, and immense modern malls.
As the capital and biggest city of this vibrant Asian country, Bangkok is a chaotic whirlwind of people and traffic. It’s loud, polluted, and frantic– but that doesn’t stop people from coming here and falling in love with the colorful craziness!
Thailand is located between vast areas of land and water, so it is impacted by both the summer and the winter monsoons. As a result, Thailand weather consists of six months of rainfalls during the wet season, three months of dry and cooling breezes during the winter, and three months of heat during the summer. The average temperature of Thailand ranges from 18 to 38°C.
Before traveling to Thailand, it is important to verify whether you need a visa or if a visa on arrival is applicable. You can check your visa requirements HERE. Summary of countries and territories entitled to visa exemption and visa on arrival in Thailand is listed HERE.
For individuals requiring a visa, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand has introduced a convenient Stickerless e-visa service. This eliminates the need to send your passport and original documents by mail to The Royal Thai Consulate. Once your E-visa application is approved, you will receive a confirmation email. It is advisable to print a copy of the confirmation email and present it to both the airline and Thai Immigration Officials for verification during your journey to Thailand.
