After eating the last Christmas ambrosias, it is time to return to the routine and assemble, as if it were origami, the 2020 desktop calendar on our work table. One of the ways to face this moment and overcome the return to the routine is to take advantage to plan the holidays. Thinking about possible destinations and starting to document local holidays acts as one of the best palliatives for post-vacation syndrome. So, adjust the back of your desk chair and start your journey.
One of the destinations that can most contrast with your current reality is Thailand . Its paradisiacal white sand beaches and hot weather contrast with the reality of these months in our country. In addition, until March it is one of the best times to visit this country, so it can be one of the best places to open this 2020. And at what price! And now is the time of the year when you will find more competitive fares to fly to Bangkok and stay in an all-inclusive ‹rong raem› that meets your expectations.
And, for you to start visualizing yourself in Thailand, we have raised some quick questions about the destination to our expert travel agent, Barbara Lopez. Do not forget to keep an eye on them to know what things you should consider and live an unforgettable experience:
Be aware of…
The taxis. In Bangkok, try to get taxi drivers to use the meter. Being a tourist, they try to negotiate price, but it always comes out more expensive. Although it is not achieved at the first, in the end you will always find some legal that gives you that service.
This destination is perfect to practice
Driving.. Specifically, the island of Koh Tao is perfect for diving because it has a great marine diversity with many corals, fish, rays … and even I was lucky to see a whale shark. There are many dive centers where you can do from test baptisms to certifications and it is a good way to meet people and enjoy that bohemian lifestyle.
It is almost essential to take out medical insurance. There they can refuse to attend a foreigner if they are not covered. I was hospitalized in Bangkok and thanks to bring medical coverage I did not have to pay anything. Hospitals are private, expensive and care is quite good.
There is no mandatory vaccine but it is advisable to get vaccinated for hepatitis A and you have to be careful with the products we eat and drink from street stalls.
How to move around destiny
The best option to travel long distances is the plane. There are low cost companies and they operate very frequently.
To move around the city, without a doubt, the best option is by motorcycle. Apart from the fact that the majority of the population uses this means of transport, it gives us a lot of independence in case we want to go to places where it can only be accessed by dirt roads.
There are countless places where you can rent motorcycles at very reasonable prices. They usually ask for an identity document and normally one part is paid at the time of rent and the other part when it is returned.
Location of the mandatory photo for Instagram
Take a picture in the typical Thai boat or in the royal palace of Bangkok. Remember that in order to enter we must have covered shoulders and legs. If you forget this advice, do not worry because right in front there are stores where you can buy clothes although logically something more expensive than normal.
