The 10 Places You Should Not Miss In Thailand

Published

on

Thailand is undoubtedly one of the most famous destinations in Southeast Asia, whether for its beaches, for its parties (Full Moon Party), the southern islands and the diving that can be done in them, among many other magnificent things that this country has to offer.

 

And best of all, at a reasonable price, in Thailand practically everything is very cheap, and even more, if we come from traveling countries like New Zealand, Australia, or some of Europe, we will want to stay and live in this paradise.

 

#1. Bangkok

Bangkok is the capital of Thailand, and surely one of the starting points of the majority of the travelers that arrive in this country. There are thousands of places, temples, and activities to perform, which you will find it hard to find, as they are available to everyone if you are stopping at the famous Khao San Road. This street is the one that brings together all the hostels, travelers, and the nightlife of Bangkok.

 

#2. Chiang Mai

If you fancy a quieter place, and with fewer people than Bangkok, Chiang Mai is your place. Chiang Mai is home to several religious centers in Thailand if perhaps you are searching for the encounter with yourself. You’re going to also find excellent massage houses, Thai cooking courses, and 1 or 2-day excursions, to the jungle, elephant trekking, lions, as well as many more. A tip, rent a motorbike, and tour Chiang Mai for yourselves!

 

#3. Ayutthaya

Only one hour from the city of Bangkok, Ayutthaya, is an incredible city, some call it “The Second Capital” of Thailand. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it has temples that blow their heads!

#4. Hin Daeng

If you love to dive, you should not miss this place in the Andaman Sea (Andaman Sea). Hin Daeng literally means Red Rock and is known as one of the best places in Thailand to dive. Here I share a map so you can see where Hin Daeng is, on the west coast of southern Thailand.

 

#5. San Kamphaeng Hot Springs

Located 36km north of Chiang Mai, are these Hot Springs that come from deep. They are renowned for their supposed restorative properties.

 

#6. Koh Samui And Koh Phangan

Many of you, if perhaps you have already been researching about Thailand, will remember about these areas on the east coast of Thailand, and then have heard wonders about them! Koh Phangan is more of a bohemian place with cafes and bars, but you can also find the world famous “Full Moon Party” right there.

When they are not partying, and want a bit of relaxation, very close they have the island of Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan, with fewer tourists, where they can relax, and do a little diving or snorkeling.

 

#7. The Floating Market

The great floating market is one among the must-sees in Bangkok, in which you could see how locals buy as well as sell all kinds of goods, but mostly food.

 

#8. Koh Chang

The island of Koh Chang, is located very close to the border with Cambodia, is not close to the southern islands. And it is an island, much quieter, than the rest of the south, it is perfect perhaps to go as a couple and enjoy full tranquility, beaches, and good food. Again, advice, rent a motorbike from the first day they arrive, and travel all over the island!

 

#9. Chiang Rai

It’s positioned well in the north of Thailand, a few kilometers from the border with Laos, in case you are going right from Thailand to Laos. The mere fact of having is a temple; it is already worth it to stay at least one day. In the city, you can dislike of very great food, particularly in the food market which is in the center, and also visit some other temples.

 

#10. Ko Phi Phi

Last on the list, but no less important at all, there is room for Ko Phi Phi; it’s impossible to go to Thailand and not visit this location we had left to name. Even after the tsunami of 2004, after being restored, it remains one of the main and most paradisiacal islands of Thailand. The destination by the preference of most travelers,    make sure before going, you are not in times of typhoons or rains.

 

Lastly, I want to believe you enjoyed this short introduction to some of the main places in Thailand, and I will be coming back with more information about each of them in particular, and many other places that should not be missed.

Four Indian police, two militants killed in Kashmir attack: police

Published

on

SRINAGAR (Reuters) – Four Indian paramilitary policemen and two militants were killed in a gunbattle that ensued after militants stormed into a police training center in Kashmir on Sunday, a police official said.

At least two militants entered the building at around 2:30 a.m. at Letpora, south of Srinagar, Rajesh Yadhav, a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) spokesman told Reuters.

The militants fired indiscriminately and lobbed grenades before heading into the center, Yadhav said.

He said two militants and four police were killed in the gunbattle.

SN Srinvastav, special director general of the CRPF, said that there could be one or more militants still hiding.

“We hope that we will conclude the operation as soon as possible”, he said.

S P Vaid, director general of Jammu and Kashmir police, said that a search operation was going on, adding that they had received tip-offs about an impending militant strike in the Kashmir for the past three days.

“They (militants) were trying. They probably could not get a place and time earlier. So, they struck last night,” Vaid said.

Militants have targeted police camps in Kashmir in recent months. Eight Indian police officials were killed when Jaish-e-Mohammad militants attacked a security camp in southern Kashmir in August.

Indian troops have killed 206 militants this year, Vaid said. Last year’s total was 150.

India accuses Pakistan of training and arming militants and helping them infiltrate across the Line of Control that divides Kashmir. Pakistan denies those allegations.

The South Asian neighbors have fought two of their three wars since independence in 1947 over Muslim-majority Kashmir, which they both claim in full but rule in part.

New year could bring record low temperatures to U.S. Midwest, East Coast

Published

on

(Reuters) – Bitterly cold weather will usher in the new year for much of the United States east of the Rocky Mountains this weekend, bringing record low temperatures to the Midwest, making travel difficult and putting a chill on New Year’s Eve celebrations.

The mercury in New York City’s Times Square was expected to drop to about 10 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 12 Celsius) with a wind chill at nearly 0 F (minus 18C) during the final hours of 2017, the National Weather Service said, testing the willpower of hundreds of thousands of New Year’s Eve revelers.

In the heartland, next week could bring low temperatures last recorded 130 years ago to parts of Nebraska, said David Eastlack, a meteorologist with the weather service. That includes a record low for the date of minus 22F (minus 30C) for Tuesday.

“The bitter cold is going to be dangerous,” he said in a phone interview, warning residents of eastern Nebraska and western Iowa to avoid venturing outside or taking a car trip. He said that the wind chills will be near minus 35F (minus 37C), a level when frostbite could set in within 10 minutes.

The weather service predicted lows would hit minus 20F to minus 30F (minus 7C to -34C) from Montana into the Dakotas and Minnesota, well below average.

Temperatures could drop to around 0 F (minus 18C) as far south as the northern border of Oklahoma on New Year’s Day, and into the minus 30s near the Canadian border on Sunday and Monday, the service said.

The arctic air from Canada will also bring subfreezing temperatures to U.S. Gulf Coast cities such as Biloxi, Mississippi.

 Icy roads will make travel difficult over much of the United States, from the south-central states of Texas and Oklahoma and eastward over Arkansas, northern Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama through the New Year’s weekend, the private AccuWeather forecasting service said.

Weather was expected to remain much more mild on the West Coast, with temperatures forecast in the low 70s in Los Angeles over the next few days.
