Your best travel sites for Thailand reviewed, including flights, luxury hotels, Thailand budget accommodation, inclusive vacation options, and backpacking in Thailand.
Here are the best travel sites for Thailand that we have found so far.
Our list covers sites that do a great job of providing you with needed information on the areas of interest to travelers... and much more.
To choose sites for your benefit, we look for sites that provide
information on some of your main concerns when looking for
information on travel in Thailand:
Discover a land full of smiling faces and enchanting places.
A travel information guide to Thailand exploring vibrant modern cities and ancient temple ruins, spectacular tropical islands and beautiful tranquil beaches and so much more.
The perfect resource for all things Thailand.
The list will grow
as we sift through more sites on Thailand.
Note: We don't feel that sites promoting only their own tours or businesses are really to your advantage; rather, we look for sites with a whole gamut of information so you don't have to open ten or more sites to find the pieces of info you're looking for.
Although not any one site will have ALL the information a person wants (for example the first site listed doesn't include cheap air tickets to Thailand), a site on Thailand should provide a sampling of information.
What we look for in reviewing Thailand travel sites (details):
1. Cheap Air Tickets to Thailand
When traveling internationally, your airline tickets are going to be
perhaps your biggest travel budget item. So this is one of the areas
that many travelers are interested in and a site about Thai travel
should address where to (hopefully) find cheap air tickets Thailand.
There are ways to find cheap flights to international destinations, but you will need to do some footwork and/or be flexible in your dates.
One of the ways to find the cheap air tickets Thailand and beyond is to find Round-the-World (RTW) packages. Since no one airline offers the complete RTW ticket, several airlines will group together to be able to offer these packages.
Are Round-the-World tickets a cheaper way to travel to Thailand?
Would you believe that
sometimes the RTW ticket is cheaper than just a round-trip (RT) ticket to Thailand? It
may well be! The above site(s) have more info on flights to Thailand.
Another way to find cheap air tickets to Thailand is to be flexible in your dates. Let's say you wanted to go on July 14, 2012. Planning ahead, could you select a different date based on cheaper flight months?
All travel sites, including Thai sites, should give you guidance in finding the best deal on tickets.
2. Travel Packages to Thailand
When you are looking for the best way to see many attractions at an
excellent price within a specified time frame, travel packages to
Thailand can save you not only money but time.
3. Bangkok, Thailand Tours
Tours of Bangkok are one of the best ways to see this great city. With
a tour, you don't have to pour over guide books, maps, and
descriptions. A guide has local knowledge, can answer questions, and a
tour will take the headaches out of doing it yourself.
4. Luxury Hotels Thailand
If you can afford it (and Thailand is a lot cheaper than you might
think), luxury hotels in Thailand will give you a lot for your money.
Sites we add to this list will give you the info on the best places to
find those luxury hotels.
5. Inclusive Thailand Vacations
Rather than trying to plan it all yourself - choosing tours, lining up
accommodations and transport, and deciding where to eat - an inclusive
Thailand vacation leaves all that work to others. You get the relaxing
vacation that you wanted. Where to find inclusive vacations is
important information for a site to include.
6. Backpacking Thailand
If you have time, energy, curiosity, are adventurous and independent,
backpacking Thailand is the way to go. With the popularity of hitting
the road, sometimes for months, a site that ignores information about
backpacking leaves a lot to be desired.
Here in our hometown in Peru, Lin
and I meet a lot of backpackers. It just seems like backpacking is the second-best way to
see a country from the inside (first-best is moving there, which we've always done).
Inside-Peru's Best Travel Sites looks for information on backpacking and resources for backpackers; key information on a well-rounded travel site.
7. Thailand Budget Accommodation
To go along with backpacking Thailand or just getting the most out of your dollar, pound, or Euro (yen, sol, etc.), you will want to know where to find Thailand budget accommodations, cheaper transportation, and reasonable meals. We look for affordable lodging information on a good travel site - next to your airline ticket, Thailand budget accommodations are probably your biggest expense.
