Switch Off and Relax in Pai

It is really interesting once you realize that a small town of 2200 on Thailand’s north became a popular resort among tourists. There is not much interesting in its center though. It consists of the main street and dozens of restaurants and bars. Nature is amazing here. Just several kilometers from the town there is a canyon. There are cliffs, the views of the valley, Pam Bok and Mor Paeng waterfalls and mountain range which is great for tourism. The best is to visit these places in the early morning hours to avoid unpleasant sun and crowds of tourists. The north of the country is cooler. Therefore, you can visit hot springs with pools. These are open all day long. Pai is the perfect place to relax. It seems as if the time stopped here. Be sure to stay for more than a one day once you decided to spend some time there.
Experience Walking Street, Pattaya

Pattaya – a popular spot mainly for man is about two hours from Bangkok. Historical sights or beaches are not why people travel there. Pattaya is known for other – rather specific – type of tourism. It is only for adults. Its greatest attraction is the so called Walking Street. It comes to live in the evening when it becomes a busy party place. Ladyboys lure tourists to night go-go bars or massages which have happy ending. Non-stop fun – if you seek this than Pattaya is the place to be.

The list of things you can do and trips you can take is infinite. If you really want to learn Thailand you should plan your vacation at least for a month.
