Is Thailand on your bucket list?

It was certainly on mine. But figuring out how to narrow down the sights to visit in Thailand can be overwhelming.

If it's your first time visiting Thailand, this is the perfect itinerary to give you a taste of everything that Southern Thailand has to offer!

Thailand is a Southeast Asia country best known for its opulent royal palaces, meditation retreats, tropical beaches, ornate temples displaying images of Buddha, ancient ruins, and ultramodern skyscrapers. It is The 50th largest country by total area in the world.

Thailand is home to about 1,430 islands which makes it one of the travel/holiday destinations these days. The beautiful thing about the Southeast Asia country is that whether you are looking for a perfect tropical beach location, exquisite culinary displays, a dose of ancient culture and history, or to party in a place that gives Las Vegas a run for its money,  Thailand is the place. Even if what you seek is a spiritual retreat, Thailand with its thousands of temples, offers you that as well.

Prepare for your trip to Thailand


The local currency of Thailand is the Thai Bhat (TBH). You can find it easily in most exchange places in Europe and the United States of America. You can choose to travel there with your own currency and do your exchange there, do cash withdrawals there, or make the exchange before arriving in Thailand.

The popular foods in Thailand are noodles, curries, and rice-based dishes which are usually very spicy. But, if you happen to be someone whose taste buds don’t fancy spicy foods, no need to worry, you can always talk to the chef to make your food less spicy. The notice is usually hung in most restaurants. 


The climate in Thailand varies throughout the country, but you can visit all year round depending on what you like. There is the low season when it usually rains and the high season which is also called the dry season. The dry season is usually between November and early April, and in our opinion, it is the best time to visit except you like the rain, and if you have a low budget as things are cheaper in the wet season.


Accommodation depends on your travel budget. One certainty is that you will not lack good and decent place to rest your head after your daily adventures. Accommodation ranges from affordable tidy motels to opulent five-star hotels. Whatever city you happen to be visiting at the time, you’ll definitely find a place to your taste and purse.


Getting to Thailand is by Air, but after you get to Thailand, how do you get around? Depending on where you are planning to go, you have the options of taking a bus, a taxi, or flying. This is also dependent on how you like to travel and your budget. The more money you have, the more comfort you’ll travel in.


Time is a major factor in going to Thailand.  You have to plan your time to the very last second before you fly out. This is because apart from the fact that Thailand is a very large country, there’s a lot to see that you may not get the chance to except you have a plan on how to best maximize your time to get the best out of the beautiful Thai country.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is something that is very important to have. You can check out They have insurance coverage for over 140 countries ranging from overseas medical insurance, baggage, evacuation, and sports activities.

Guide Book

It’s advisable not to travel anywhere you have never been before with a guide book. Yes, we know there is Google Earth and other online guides, but it’s prudent to have a manual guide book just in case you find yourself in a place where Internet reception is bad or lose your phone. We recommend getting Lonely Planet Thailand. It’s easy to comprehend and use.

Language (Phrase Book)

The official language of Thailand is Thai. It is quite difficult to speak and understand, do you need a phrase book to help you understand elementary Thai and communicate with the locals. We recommend getting Lonely Planet Thai Phrase Book or get the book/audio course. The latter is better as you can teach yourself a bit of Thai which will get you a lot further.


You should be up to date with your vaccinations before visiting Thailand or any other country. The Center For Disease Control in the United States of America recommends getting vaccinated for Hepatitis A and B, and Typhoid. This should be taken seriously as you don’t want to fall sick and ruin your trip.

If you have moved the above from your To Know List to your Accomplished List, then we can say that you are ready to travel and get to letting you know the things you can get done in 10 days while in Thailand.

The city’s charm is eclipsed by the things that will annoy you most about it. Things street scams on unsuspecting tourists to the chaotic traffic will be sure to put you off but don’t be deterred.

We advise that you look beyond all that to see the beauty underneath. The city is rife with golden temples, tantalizing Thai delicacies, and an energy you won’t find anywhere else in Thailand.

Phuket, Koh Lanta, and the Phi Phi Islands are the most visited tourist islands in Thailand. Although some may disagree with this assessment, it is based on preference.

These Islands are popular for surfing, diving, snorkeling, and other forms of water sports. Since you have spent two days in Kai Sumai resting on the beach and taking in the sights, we recommended you spend your last two days exploring these places before you pack up to go home. It would be a shame to have visited Thailand and not taken part in any of the water sports it has to offer, except you have aquaphobia in which case we’ll advise you to not take part in any of the activities, but simply enjoy watching others.

That being said, how do you spend two days in these three islands and still get the best experience out of them? Here are some options:
