Now Playing Tracks

One of the hottest beach-resort destinations in Thailand, Pattaya may not be idyllic but it certainly makes up for it with a wide variety of activities, accommodation, and nightlife venues.
Pattaya is a lively beach town that draws visitors from around the world. With activities that include a wide array of water sports, golf, shopping, cabaret shows, an elephant village, and a Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum (to name only a very few) it’s impossible not to have an action-packed Pattaya holiday. Unless of course its relaxation you crave, in which case there are thousands of beach chairs and umbrellas lining the Pattaya shore, where wandering vendors will cater to your every need: from barbequed shrimp to a foot massage. Pattaya is certainly a Thai beach resort that meets the needs of any visitor on any budget.

Where to enjoy the rain?

Hi everyone! Welcome to the rainy season in Thailand! It has just started to rain often here in Bangkok. What about you guys in other provinces? By the way, what do you mostly think of when talking about the rainy season? Sukjai is thinking about waterfalls! There will be a lot of natural water coming to land this time of year which makes going to the waterfall so terrific! Speaking of it, Sukjai would love to be soaking in cool wate right now. Who has some time to go with Sukjai?

Currently the cover page of TAT main site is themed in Green Season with lush green designs. The site is now offering interesting information on various activities for the rainy season in Thailand, such as whitewater rafting and kayaking. Who says the rainy season is boring?

And as always, Sukjai is bringing a good activity to you! Just answer the question ‘Where is your favorite place in Green Season?’ from Amazing Thailand. Two lucky winners will receive a room package from Sampran Riverside in Nakhon Pathom. Think of your best place during this invigorating season and submit your thoughts at http://quiz.tourismthailand.org/greenseason/. Good luck!

Wander around Nakhon Pathom

On such a hot day like this you might not want to take on a long journey. So today Sukjai will recommend you a destination near Bangkok. It is Nakhon Pathom. Nakhon Pathom is the gate to the west of Thailand. There are a number of tourist attractions in the province, some of which will be presented by Sukjai today!

The most outstanding landmark in Nakhon Pathom is definitely the Phra Pathom Chedi, the tallest stupa in the world. Visit and pay respect if you have a chance to come by. Another interesting spot in the province is the Thai Human Imagery Museum which houses a number of amazingly human-like wax sculptures. The wax museum tells the story of Thai traditions and displays wax statues of important people in Thai history.

Sukjai is getting hungry now so let’s drop by at Don Wai Floating Market! The goods sold at the market are general stuff, foods, fruits, and souvenirs. One thing you should not miss here is the pomelo, which is the highlighted product of the province. Nakhon Pathom is so well-known for its sweet pomelo that the fruit is mentioned in its slogan. After shopping, Sukjai takes a rest on a raft by the river. What a relaxing atmosphere it can offer!

You can easily find happiness just around Bangkok on the holidays, see? Next time Sukjai will introduce you to another great place in Thailand! See ya!

Has not over yet for Thailand’s Songkran Splendor (^_^)

27 - 29 April 2012 : Songkran Splendor Festival @ Phra Pradaeng (Thai-Mon’s Songkran)

@ Phra Pradaeng Municipality Office, Samut Prakarn Province

This is one of the few places in Thailand that celebrates the Songkran Splendor Festival in the Thai-Mon style. The not-to-miss highlight is a magnificent parade. Visitors can learn how to play saba, enjoy a Mon folk play and many other forms of entertainment, and also see a procession of swan and centipede flags.

Have a happy Thai-Mon Songkran, the last Songkran of this festive month. See you again in next year of Songkran Splendor 2013 (^_^)
