The East Thailand region
Thailand is an amazing country with a warm climate year-round. High season is considered to be November - March but even in the rainy season (May - September) expect lovely sunny mornings before the clouds bubble up. Fabulous fresh Thai cuisine with an emphasis on seafood but European food is always available. There are plenty of delightful islands to explore, fishing trips, diving, golf and elephant treks. Stock up on Thai silk, traditional wooden gifts and replica watches. Shop western style at modern shopping plazas, or enjoy haggling at the markets in true Thai fashion and unbelievably low prices. Thailand is called 'The Land of Smiles' - and rightly so.
The Thais love festivals and fairs and the calendar is full of colourful pageants, carnivals and excuses to celebrate. My personal favourite is Songkran (Thai New Year) in April - expect to get a thorough soaking! There's plenty to do in Pattaya - shopping, boat trips, watersports as well as a hugely varied nightlife including cabaret, nightclubs, theme pubs and dining cruises. The famous and beautiful 'Sanctuary of Truth' temple is just a couple of miles north. There's an excellent aquariam, go karts, bowling, elephant and crocodile farms and a handful of world class golf courses within an easy drive.
