What to see in one week

With historical and cultural sights at every turn, it can be hard to know where to start with what to see in Thailand. Thailand’s temples are always fascinating and stunning places to visit and you’ll be spoilt for choice, with so many options and each more beautiful than the last. Visit Wat Phra That Doi Suthep in the Chiang Mai Province of Northern Thailand for ornate golden buildings, bright colours and stunning temple interiors. Next, the historical park of Ancient Siam is the perfect way to make learning about Thailand’s history in a beautiful setting. Take a day tour and enjoy the sites and stories that your local guide will introduce you to. To see Thailand’s wildlife head to the national parks, just two good options of which include Khao Yai National Park and Khao Sok National Park. Here you can see a huge range of native Thai wildlife and learn all about each species.

What to do in one week

With one week in Thailand, you’ll be able to discover many of Thailand’s hidden gems. Why not organise a boat tour and go island hopping to avoid the crowds? You’ll feel as though you’re uncovering hidden lands as you cross the crystal waters and explore caves, coves and deserted beaches. For more islands, head to the Phi Phi Islands where you’ll be able to snorkel and explore the underwater paradise here. For scuba diving, Ko Lanta Yai is unbeatable and scuba divers and snorkellers alike flock to these coral-fringed beaches for an underwater experience unlike any other. Next, move on to Phang Nga Bay for even more adventure. Here you can sea kayak, climb and explore caves before heading back inland. Follow the coast on a moped road trip for a road trip experience that is unique to Southeast Asia. See how locals live as you travel around using the national mode of transport and feel the wind in your hair as you take in the incredible views.

Best time to travel to Thailand for a week

Thailand is generally considered a year round destination and so the best time to visit will depend on what you plan on doing and where you plan on going during your one week itinerary in Thailand. The climate can vary in different areas of the country but generally speaking, the dry season runs from November to April and is the most popular season to travel. It is also slightly cooler during these months than during the humid summer season where rains and intense storms are frequent. Each season has its own benefits, with the rainy season meaning reduced prices and more availability. Whenever you decide to visit Thailand, you’ll want to come back as soon as your 7 day itinerary is over.

When to go in Thailand?

The best season to visit Thailand extends from November to March, when it rains much less than during the rest of the year. In addition, the largest local festivals take place during that time period. Avoid the rainy season, from July to October. Other precautions apply to different regions individually: avoid the center of the country between March and May, where temperatures can exceed 40 degrees and the heat becomes stifling. If you're heading for the northern mountains, the warm season between March and May, or the start of the rainy season, is better, because the temperatures are still pleasant. Whether lounging on spectacular islands or exploring royal cities, you'll be bowled over by Thailand, the former Kingdom of Siam with its abundance of cultural treasures. Head for this wonderfully welcoming country and discover its delicious cuisine.
