Alternately if you had rather save up and treat yourself to a holiday in Thailand next year at this time, you could try Thomas Cook’s Holiday Savings Account offer where a monthly deposit of 2650 for the next 12 months can buy you a trip to eternal favourites Bangkok and Pattaya. Especially for India’s youth who are looking to make their first international trip, this might be a good option.
Win a(nother) trip
The Tourism Authority of Thailand is offering prizes for every millionth visitor to the Kingdom. Thailand gets over 2 million travellers every month, so there are two prizes on offer every month. The lucky traveller will receive two economy-class return air tickets from their international port of origin to Thailand as well as enjoy a five-night accommodation in Thailand for the next trip. The prize is valid within one year.
Soraya Homchuen, director, Tourism Authority of Thailand in Mumbai says, “I think that travellers can maximize benefits by travelling at this time – they will not only enjoy special discounts but also see a refreshing new face of the Amazing Thailand that they are accustomed to.”
Thailand’s rainforests and waterfalls are at their most pristine during the monsoon with Mother Nature in full bloom. Some of the experiences characteristic to this period include the Dok Krachiao (Siam Tulip) Blooming Festival that takes place at the Sai Thong National Park in Chaiyaphum which is located in north-eastern Thailand. Kanchanaburi’s wealth of waterfalls and rolling plains are at their best during the monsoon. Lampang’s hot springs and Trang’s rivers, national parks and waterfalls take on an all new magic. Additionally, Chanthaburi’s larger-than-life (think 15 tiers and more) waterfalls come to life at this time and being the fruit capital, now is a good time to enjoy its local treasures: Langsat Chamkho fruits are available during May and September. The monsoon is also the best time of the year to enjoy an orchard experience in Thailand. Suan Suphattra Land offers you an orchard tour that includes a fruit buffet where you can stop and eat as many of the fresh fruits as you like.
