For me, the major draw to Thailand was the tropical outdoor options that are available. I have taken students to the mountains of Pai near Chiang Mai Phuket to Krabi ferry the warm blue waters of the Andaman sea. We have trained on beautiful islands like Koh Samui and climbed some of the best rock climbing available in the world in Krabi province. When you are not training in the martial arts, there is plenty of adventure in Thailand.
One time flying to Thailand for another adventure I couldn’t help overhearing the couple in front of me. They were not together but seated next to each other. One person asked the other why they were going to Thailand. His response at first startled me. He said he was going to Thailand Phuket to Krabi ferry see a dentist as it was just too costly in the States by comparison.
Thailand’s beaches are, by far, the most popular destination. The selection is not so easy here as well. Those who come for a short period, or energetic nightlife lovers will head to Pattaya. Two quieter beaches not so far from the capital can be enjoyed in Ko Chang and Ko Samet islands. Phuket island is a main tourist attraction with long warm beaches and plenty of activities to be had. Ko Samui island has developed from a backbackers favorite to a five stars resorts island. For the best diving sites in Thailand, Ko Tao is the top choice. Party animal? Don’t miss the famous Full Moon Party in Ko Phangan. Looking for a peaceful, quiet holiday and superb views? You can never be wrong with Krabi, Ko Lanta or Ko Phi Phi.
So many things to see in such a little time! Many travelers to Thailand are often perplexed as to where to go. Travel agents show clients thick photo albums, long lists of Hotels and a longer list of Resorts, Spas and Beaches. It seems as if one can spend a year in Thailand and not see it all (which is probably not so far from the truth)!
Krabi is another beach in Thailand which is definitely worth visiting. With a population of only 18,000 the area is not that crowded with Ferry krabi phuket which makes it one of the more calm and peaceful beaches as compared to the other more popular beaches in Thailand.
My point is to point out the positive benefits for long-term students to choose Thailand as their destination for growth. I expect everyone to return home with tales of adventure and eventually settle down where they are happy and can make a successful life for themselves. However, the truth is that jobs will always be there and family and friends will be waiting for you Krabi to Phuket return. Therefore, while you are focused on training and personal growth, you might as well get the best adventure and experience that your money can buy.
It might sound silly, but many of my students found that renting a moped and cruising around the islands to be one of the best experiences. Simple adventures like taking a long tail boat from one island to another can be quite thrilling. Adventure is often equated to new experiences and Thailand has plenty to offer.
Without a doubt, Thailand offers excellent shopping, definitely one of the best in the world. Bangkok itself plays host to numerous shopping districts where one can get anything from designer labels to cheap knock-offs. Those with heftier wallets frequent the Ratchaprasong area and its upscale malls with their numerous designer boutiques. The more budget-conscious, however, can be found haggling their way through nearby Pratunam, the Lumphini Night Market, the Chatuchak Weekend Market, and Bo Bae, Asia’s wholesale mecca.
Phi Phi is Best known for the film “The Beach” with Leonardo DiCaprio. however by yacht will not leave you stranded! As you have your own private paradise on board while everyone else is left on uncomfortable fishing boats and speed boats!
Other than these places, there are many other destinations which have some really good beaches. Though these beaches are not so popular but it’s great if you want Ferry krabi phuket relax away from the crowd. These are Trang, Ranong and Kanchanaburi. You can easily make your trip to these locations by taking cheap flights to Bangkok.
Surat Thani has a fairly reasonable nightlife scene here. However, do not expect it to be like those in Phuket’s infamous Patong Beach. The nightlife scene here is rather decent with a number of beach bars along Chaweng Beach, where their nightlife thrives. These bars include Viking Bar and Ourbar (the only Irish bar around). In fact, just walk along the beach and go to any bar which attracts you the most!
I have not seen a dentist in Thailand however I do remember a student that had a cavity removed for only about 500 baht in a great location off of a main Soi in Bangkok. I also remember visiting the hospital in Chiang Mai and after visiting three doctors for three separate issues (thought I would try to get as much covered as possible at the same time) it only cost me about 1000 Thai baht (about $35 U.S. Dollars). Naturally, this person must be getting some major dental work done to spend $1,000 or close to it Krabi to Phuket fly to Thailand to see a dentist.
