If you ever wondered what was below Thailand's turquoise waters, this is the place to look. If you don't mind the heat then this can be a good time to go on holiday to Thailand to avoid the crowds. Surround yourself with stunning scenery, fascinating history, mouthwatering food, beaches, mountains, cities, villages, and – most importantly – the amazing people who will help you appreciate it. It's also a good idea to check with your local customs officials to ensure that you are able to bring certain items back into your home country. Typically, Thailand tours begin and end in Bangkok, the country's capital. Most importantly, have fun and don’t forget to haggle for a good price.
