The Ultimate Packing List – Thailand

      Thailand is one of the most popular tropical getaways for Indian people who want to holiday abroad. There are many things that attract visitors here – the culture, the history, exotic beaches, night life, and of course, the friendly people. If you have planned a trip to Thailand, you must be wondering what to pack for your trip. Well, we are here to help with some great tips on what you should bring for your Thai holidays.

        One piece of advice that applies to almost all destinations is you should travel as light as possible. Thailand is also famous as a shopping destination, so you would definitely want to buy stuff from there. So, considering weight restrictions of flights leave ample space for your purchases.

1. Clothes

     Clothes take the maximum of our packing space. So, it is important that you sort it out first thing. The climate of Thailand is hot and humid. So, pack breathable cotton and linen fabric clothes. But, inside shopping malls and during your flight, it can be quite chilly because of the air conditioner, so you might pack a thin jacket for such times. There are a variety of things to do in Thailand, so depending on how you plan to spend your day you will have to dress up accordingly.

For the beach:clothes for the beach in thailand

      Beach bumming will definitely be one of the things to do in Thailand. So, make sure you bring beach essentials – a beach tote bag, beach swim wear, a beach towel, flip flops, sunscreen lotion, sun glasses and a wide rimmed hat. Thai people are somewhat conservative when it comes to dressing. So, once you are out of the water, it is best to cover up – girls must always pack a sarong as it comes in really handy to cover up in such places.

For temple visits:dress decently for temples in Thailand

     Pay particular attention to what you wear when you are visiting temples in Thailand. It is considered disrespectful if you are not dressed appropriately and you might be asked to cover up before entering the temple premises. One simple rule to follow is to keep your shoulders, as well as your knees, covered. So, half sleeve tops or t-shirts are okay, for bottom full pants or trousers are best. Girls can wear long skirts as well. It makes sense for ladies to carry a scarf as it comes in handy to cover up. Also, you will be needed to take off your shoes, before entering the temple, so comfortable slip on shoes will work best as it saves you the hassle of untying and tying the laces multiple times.

For sightseeing:clothes for sight seeing in thailand

      Thais in a city like Bangkok is quite modern and fashionable. So, you can dress like your usual self when sight-seeing in the city. Just keep the climate of the place in mind. Cotton tees, light breathable linen fabric clothes work best. If you have hiking and trekking in your itinerary, make sure to pack synthetic fabric long sleeve tees and pants as they are best to keep your safe from bugs. Hiking socks and comfortable but sturdy hiking shoes should also be on the packing list.

For night outs:clothes for thailand nights out

     A Thai trip is not complete if you have not enjoyed a night out in the city. So, girls can pack a decent fancy dress with matching sandals and accessories. Casual dressing is fine for men in such places.

2. Toiletries:

toiletries

       Pack small size packs of all the essential toiletries you typically need for Thailand. It’s not that you will not them locally, but why waste time unnecessarily in going to super market. A typical toiletries bag must have body wash/soap, shampoo, and conditioner, face wash; face cream, body cream, lip balm, deodorants, tooth paste, tooth brush, sunscreen lotion with at least 30 SPF, and shaving essentials for men. Girls should bring minimal makeup things as the weather is quite hot for anything to stay. As in any tropical climate country, mosquitoes are also a nuisance in Thailand. So, pack some anti-mosquito repellent sprays or patches. A bottle of hand sanitizer is also essential in the hand bag.

3. Medicines:medicines

     No one likes to fall sick on a holiday. But, it’s best to pack some essential medicines for common ailments like headaches, upset stomach, allergies, etc. Also, pack an antiseptic cream and band aids for minor scrapes or scratches.

4. Shoes:shoes in thailand

     Since you will have to remove your shoes quite often in Thailand – in many shops, temples, massage parlours, etc., it makes sense to pack shoes from the slip on variety. Pack a flip flop as they are best for beaches. For moving around the city where you might have to walk a lot, comfortable slip on sandals is best. For a dinner at a high-end restaurant or for a night out, you might want to add a dressier sandal to the list. If trekking and hiking are on the itinerary, appropriate adventure shoes need to be packed as well.

5. Water Bottle:water bottle

     You need to keep yourself hydrated when you are in Thailand. So, it makes sense to carry around a water bottle with you. Safe to drink water is available for refilling almost everywhere in Thailand and it will be easy in your pockets than buying packaged water every time.

6. Rain Gear:

rain gear

     If you are travelling during the rainy season in Thailand, appropriate rain gear is a must. Even when it is not the season, it can rain anytime in Bangkok, so pack a light raincoat or a fold-able umbrella to save you from a sudden shower. It is also essential to have a waterproof backpack if you are carrying gadgets like a DSLR with you.

7. Universal Adaptor:

universal adaptor

    The outlets in Thailand are varied and may not be compatible with all your gadgets. So, it is best to pack a universal adaptor. It will come in handy when you want to charge your phone, camera and other gadgets.

8. Camera and Smart Phone:

camer and smartphone

     There will be ample opportunities for you to click pictures in Thailand. So, take along a good camera. Or if you are used to clicking pictures on your mobile, carry a charger and a power bank. If you are an avid photographer, do not forget to pack an extra battery, extra memory card, and the charging unit for your camera.

      So, now you have a quick list to refer to for packing for your Thailand trip. Apart of these make sure you have your passports, travel tickets, Thai currency, and hotel booking print outs in place before leaving for the destination. Packing a travel guidebook for Thailand or a good book to read during your flight is also a must.

       Travel light and enjoy your stay in Thailand. If you need any help in planning your trip, the travel experts at visiit.com can come to your rescue.

 

Food is one of the most basic needs of humankind. Although clothing and shelter might also find a parallel mention, it is not as important as food. The human beings, in their early days have managed to live without clothing and shelter, but never ever have managed to live without food!

Food, which was once quite common to all of mankind, started to take its own forms and our thoughts depending on the geography, the temperature, the lifestyle, and the availability of resources in different places of the planet. This has given us a new word that has more grossly been misused than used – ‘cuisine’! you might have seen this word paired up with a lot of want to be restaurants that claim to be multi-cuisine, but just give a glimpse of a little Spice and herb and claim it to be from another culinary procedure.

In all the cuisines Around The World, some of them have managed to stand out and proclaim their superiority in terms of taste and awesomeness. Let’s discuss a few of those cuisines that have managed to stand up and stand out.

The first everything on this list has got to be the Mighty United States America!

United States of America:

The United States of America might not have a cuisine of its own. However, just like the Constitution and the idea of Democracy, the United States has managed to perfect whatever was given to it in a very crude form. Yes, the hamburgers belong to Germany, the pizza belongs to Italy and the french fries belong to either Belgium or Netherlands. However, we all went to associate these dishes not with the countries of origin but with the United States of America. It all has got to do with the brand United States. It has to be agreed that the United States did give a facelift to all these dishes. Hamburgers well just confined to Ham in Germany but the United States gave it chicken patties and beef patties. French fries were dressed in ranch, and the United States gave the idea of dressing them up with ketchup. Pizza in Italy was thin crusted and the United States came up with the idea of filling the pizza crust with cheese.

Even though the United States has messed up with a few dishes like that KFC and the overly sweet ice creams, we have to give this country that you credit of making food an industry as opposed to a habit.

Italy:

With no intended references to people in today’s politics, Italy should be credited with inventing the idea of using simple ingredients and making some of the most robust dishes. You cannot just imagine the magic that a little bit of flour, cheese, and tomato can bring about.With these Limited ingredients, they have created an entire series of dishes that do not fail to the light the taste buds of every person across the globe. These dishes include but are not limited to the thin crust pizza, the pasta, the Lasagna and even a series of desserts like pannacotta.One of the things that make the Italian cuisine even more special is that they are quite agnostic towards the ingredients that they use. They wouldn’t hesitate to make different variants of a dish with one of it spicy, one of it tangy and one of it sweet.

Italian

Tne of the grandest contributions of Italy to the world has the different variations of one of the world’s most favorite beverages – coffee! Almost every coffee that ends with the letter O can be attributed to Italy – Cappuccino, Mochaccino, Macchiato And a lot more.

China:

Maybe, food is one of the very few things that China has been original with! Legend says that the pasta of Italy where brought by Marco Polo when he visited China and pasta is nothing more than a Europeanised version of the Chinese noodles. The list of things that make it be a part of Chinese preparations as ingredients is nothing short of baffling. We are not even referring to the extremes but more of moderate Chinese dishes like pork, Duck and different varieties of fishes.

chinese food

China, being such a large country have different choices of cuisines right within the country. the Szechuan cuisine is something that we all know. It has an extra quotient of Spice that makes it quite distinct. The entrepreneurial and the frugal spirit of the Chinese also ensures that they achieve the maximum efficiency in terms of quality and taste by using a very minimal number of ingredients, and also the least expensive ones.

Mexico:

You can build a wall to protect your country from them, but you can never stop the Mexicans from exiting their culinary influence across all the cuisines of the world. Mexico has a mix of elements that include everything. There is spice, there is tang, there is zest, and there is so much more to Mexican cuisine.

mexicanfood

The Mexican food can fit in any meal of the day. It is so full of nutrition and even the little elements like avocado, lime, tomato, and garlic at to the antioxidant properties along with the chilis. If you would like to have a Perfect Combination of Taste, health and the portioning then the Mexican cuisine is the one that you will need to look forward to!

The food from Mexico is literally a culinary Fiesta.

India:

If there is a mention of food, it cannot be complete without the mention of India. India is a subcontinent, and each food has its own signature in terms of taste and awesomeness. However, there are things that are common to any cuisine across the country. It is nothing more than the spiciness!

Indian food

The food of India exhibits a distinct flavor of pungency, sourness, and spice that beautifully coexist to give out a dish that is distinct in taste. Much like the United States, India has also managed to unify the different dishes around the World – just that it happened at a time of History when India was among the very few known countries in the World.

The Persian Biryani and the Mongolian Samosa are synonymous with India more than their places of origin.

India has a legacy with beverages and desserts as well. The Sulaimani Tea of Hyderabad, the Filter Coffee of South India and Kumbakonam in particular, the Lassi and the Rasmalai of North India are a few dishes that put India as a bound name in the list of countries that flaunt their culinary awesomeness.

Ask any tourist they will tell you the importance of food, which is an integral part of their journey to another part of the world that they have never experienced. It is always a great idea and a good practice to understand the different cuisines around the world, and prepare yourself for the culinary experience that you will Treasure forever, both in your mind and in your taste buds!

We, as consumers of Indian cinema, would know how difficult it is to break out of stereotypes. Thailand, as a tourist destination, is not an exception to this rule. We have always looked at Thailand as a destination that is full of parties, beaches and a lot of other entertainments. Little do we realize that Thailand, just like any other East Asian Nation, also has a rich history, and the vestiges of it are still visible all along the country in their fullest awesomeness.

Here are a few places in Thailand that one should consider visiting if they are history aficionados.

The Rattanakosin island

With a Legacy of over a couple of centuries, this Island takes the credit of being one of the first planned cities in Asia. This Island houses the Royal Residence of the king of Thailand, also known as the Grand Palace. The motive of this Island been chosen as a destination for a plant city was the intention to fortify the Royal premises.

Rattanakosin

In addition to the Grand Palace Complex, this Island also houses the what who temple of the reclining Buddha which is considered to be one of the most sacred places when it comes to Buddhist worship. The golden Mount and the what sweetheart are also some of the places of pilgrimage that need to be considered while visiting the Rattanakosin Island. This Island is also the home to the giant swing which was once an integral part of the culture of Thailand.

The Phimai

Thailand, apart from India and Indonesia, was another place where Hinduism and Buddhism peacefully co-existed, and the Phimai Temple Complex is a resounding testimony to that confluence. Considered to be a Khmer landmark that’s even holder than the torchbearer – the Angkor Vat – this temple marks the end of the Khmer Highway.

Though this temple is predominantly Buddhist, there are signs of Hinduism and Animism in the sculptures of the Temple. This temple houses a sanctuary, two pagodas, a war-field and above everything, the World’s largest Banyan Tree!!

PhiMai

Doesn’t this sound like a place where you can play your live Temple Run!?

The Death Railway

Thailand’s history was not always about the gold-studded palaces and peace-loving monks. They’ve had their fair share of the dark ages as well, the worst of which came in during the World War II when the Japanese occupied the lands, and forced all the Allied Prisoners and the Romusha Workers to work on a 415 Km long Railway Line connecting Thailand and the Erstwhile Burma.

Over 12000 Allied POWs and over 90000 Romusha workers lost their valuable lives during the constructions of the Railway Line. There are two points of interest on the Death Railway. One of them was called the Hellfire Pass, owing to the starved workers working in the flame-lights of torches, making it look like hell. And the other one in the Bridge on the River Kwai, which was immortalized in one of the greatest war-movies of all time!

So, the next time you hear the whistle of the theme-music of the movie, take a moment to think about this tourist paradise that braved the atrocities of a brutal Japanese Military!

Sukothai Historical Park

Imagine a place that is dotted with an abundance of temples for Hinduism, Buddhism and Animism, spanning about five dynasties – the Sukothai, Ayuttha, Khmer, Lanka and Dvaravati! Doesn’t the very mention of these make you go wide-mouthed with awe? This is what the Sukothai Historical Complex is all about!

Visiit Sukothai

Being a home to 21 temples constructed across many centuries, this place is also blessed in multiple dimensions with a plenty of lakes and trees!! This is a place that has to be a must-visit on your trip to Thailand!

No wonder, the name of the place ‘Sukothai’ translates to ‘Dawn of Happiness’ in the local language Pali!

Chiang Saen

Some cities have had a historic importance pertaining to a ruling dynasty, and some of them have disappeared in the annals of time! Some of them, however, stand out by defying all the powers that try to subdue their awesomeness. Here’s one such pinnacle – the Chiang Saen!

The Chiang Saen was one of the earliest settlement in Thailand, boasting of a legacy that predates the present by about 1500 years, when the Chinese and the Mongoloids moved into the rainforests of Southeast Asia. Having had its heydays in the time of Lanna kinks, this place was ransacked by King Rama I, and it had remained a ghost town left with a few remnants of its glorious past until the 19th Century. It sits on the banks of the Mekong, and today, it is one of the most sought-after places to visit in Thailand! One add-on to the attraction-quotient of the place is the 1200 Kg-heavy Buddha Statue!

Pu Phra Bat

No, this place has got nothing to do with the Cricketing world or the DC Comics World. This is a piece of history in Thailand that is way ahead of what we know as ‘history’. The Pu Phra Bat is known for its unusual rock formations that are over 6000 years old. Research suggests that these rock-formations might have been results of continuous erosions. The earlier human inhabitants of Thailand used these rocks are canvasses to showcase their artsiness, the vestiges of which can be seen on the rocks even today!

Pu Pra Bhat

These rocks also carry with them, some history from the Khmer and Dvaravati empires. There’s a ‘Tangled’ like legend that says one king hid his beautiful daughter in one of the cave-rock formations until she managed to escape with her Prince Charming!! And we thought Disney was innovative!!

The Phanom Rung

The Phanom Rung is what a loud trumpet of the prosperity and power of Khmer looks like! Built between the 13th and 14th centuries, this is essentially a Temple Complex. It was started as a center of Hindu Worship, and later transformed into a Buddhist Shrine, but retaining the elements of Hindu Architecture and worship.

The temples are lined in such a way to reflect the structure of ‘Kailash’ or the Abode of Lord Shiva. There are some spaces where the importance to the deity Vishnu is also seen! Thailand, it seems, is not only a place where Hinduism and Buddhism co-existed, but even Saivism and Vaishnavism co-existed!!

In Civics… let’s not forget History:

Yes, it is true that today’s awesomeness of Thailand is built on parties, beaches and massage-parlors. However, in all this, let’s not forget that this quaint South East Asian country has a great history to boast about, and for us to visit – and this history is probably richer than that of Europe and surely richer than the ‘discovered’ lands on the West of the Atlantic!!

Thailand is a place that is so known for its party, it’s beaches and a whole lot of a vivid spectrum of things that it offers. Wildest cliches make Thailand a great tourist destination, there are a lot of other attractions that make Thailand worth visiting even beyond these little things.

Here are a few destinations in Thailand that are so offbeat, that you might not have even thought about visiting them.

The Siriraj Medical Museum:

This Hospital is the equivalent of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences for Thailand. the Royal family of Thailand gets their medical treatments from this Institute. It’s more than a century old and boasts of a royal lineage that a few other institutes can even think about! However, the museum of this institute has a very easy connotation. Housing some weird artifacts like bones, preserved organs, pathological fetuses, parasitic worms, and The Skeleton of the founder of this Institute, this Museum presents itself as a weird centre of attraction.

Siriraj

The Amulet Market :

As the name implies, there is an entire corridor filled with thousands of Sacred trinkets that are permitted to offer protection against all kinds of Evil. This amulet market is frequented by locals and international tourists. There are different kinds of amulets that range from chunks of wood to even real human body parts like hair. These amulet are said to carry some divine or secret magical power that could be in the form of parts of temples from far away like incense sticks, or pieces of metal or medals blessed by monks, or even some are millets that have engraved images of Buddha.

Amulet

One thing that makes the amulet market special, whether you call it good or bad, is that there are no guides. You have to identify your kind of amulet all by yourself. This makes the visit to this place even more interesting, just to watch other people pick their amulets.

The Haunted Skyscraper :

From the early to the mid-nineties, Thailand was a booming economy. However, during the 1997 Asian financial crisis, the economy of Thailand cell considerable and it contract it to as low as 10%. This is left a lot of projects in progress hanging Midway.

One of these unfortunate projects is a 49 story skyscraper that was known as the Sathorn Unique. Bringing together both residential and commercial elements, this skyscraper was all set to be the face of Thailand economic growth but the economic depression thought otherwise. This has left the building in a very easy state giving it quite a haunted appearance. Adding to this is the mystery in abandoned rooms, lifelike mannequins, and a picture of the King.

This building was closed for commercial exploitation in June 2016. However for those who have some pumping adrenaline and a thirst for adventure this building is not totally of the limits. As responsible travel promoters, we would recommend you to exercise at most care to avoid injuries from deformed ceilings and damaged metal sheets.

The Bangkok Aeroplane Graveyard :

Those who are familiar with the concept of flight graveyards might know the Davis-Monthan air force base in Arizona. This south-east Asia answer to Arizona albeit in a flavor of being commercial and touristy. Dubious thanks to a flight crash that happened in the late 90s, the Boeing MD 82 was considered a bad omen. One of the Planes that was disengaged from the workforce became a dwelling place for one couple in the outskirts of Bangkok. In 2015, another Boeing 787 was added to this site to serve as an additional point of attraction. These two together, so as living spaces and centers of revenue for the people who live here.

Graveyard

The family that lives here has very aesthetically defaced the plane. They have removed the seats, the paneling, the television sets, and the oxygen masks. Adding to this they have ever done the interiors to make it real home-like and well decorated. The steps to these homes are made of discarded aircraft tyres. Just like any other Thai attraction and just like any other Royal citizen of Thailand, the interiors of this plane also has a photograph of the king of Thailand.

If this one has finished your curiosity and you have decided to visit this plane homes, make sure that you remember that this is a private property and not a public place. The respect for privacy and everything that is in there is to be regarded at highest intensity point

The Museum of Counterfeit Goods :

If there is a point at which China exerts a lot of pressure over Thailand, it has to be in the form of counterfeiting a lot of branded products. The law and order officials of Thailand have taken a very weird yet effective step to counter these. They have created a museum exclusively for counterfeit goods.

Sitting on the 26 floor of the law and order headquarters of Bangkok, this is a rather weird place to display counterfeit goods. However, the utility value is of utmost importance. You have a guided tour by a law and order executive who is well was in pointing out counterfeit goods, and they will tell you in detail how to spot counterfeit goods and how to stay away from getting fleeced.

Counterfeit

This place has a collection of over 3500 counterfeit products including but not limited to clothing brands like Gucci Armani and a lot more, toys and even Automobile parts. It is no surprise that the allegation by the officials is that 95% of these counterfeited goods come from China. The intensity of counterfeiting is so much that only 500 products out of the 3500 can be put on display.

If you are interested in doing some intense shopping in Thailand, this is one place that you should definitely visit, not for knowing what to buy but for knowing what not to buy!

The Giant Swing :

Why Led Zeppelins have given us the eternal Joy of Stairway to Heaven, the people of Thailand have stepped out a little out of the box and have given a swing to heaven. Made of teak wood that is over 20 meters tall and a couple of centuries old, this swing is thought to be the good luck charm for the men of Thailand.

Swing

Until 1935, this swing used to be a part of a famous ceremony where men climb onto it and swing the full distance to Grab a bag full of coins which was supposed to bring them a lot of good luck in everything that they did. However due to the overwhelming number of deaths that happen because of the ceremony, this swing was shut down in 1935. Today this swing serves as a grim testimony to some of the weird ceremony is that Thailand used to have.

The Queen’s Institute :

Talk about Southeast Asia to any nature-aficionado, and they cannot imagine a Southeast Asia without venomous Snakes and insects. This mandated that Thailand had to have some extremely good command over the medical procedures regarding snake bites and insect harms. This is the very reason why the Queen’s Institute exists today.

This Institute was started with a motive to create and research on vaccines and medicines for rabies and smallpox. When the instances of snake bites started to increase in Thailand, the institute shifted its focus in research on Venom and extraction of anti-venom.

Today, this Institute houses several species of venomous snakes, their antivenom, and even has a show which displays how to extract the Venom from the snake for the purpose of creating the anti-venom.
