More About Thailand
Thailand is the only Southeast Asian country that has never been colonised by a European power. It’s capital Bangkok is a delicious mix of contrasts. Modern, tall skyscrapers next to vintage Thai architecture. The latest cars cruising next to tuk tuks. Expensive hotels next to affordable backpacker hostels. This city has it all. If you are brave enough to visit one of the many markets in Bangkok, do make sure to (respectfully) haggle with the sellers. Never accept the first price they offer you and feel free to go back and forth as you negotiate a price that is acceptable to both of you. The Sunday Walking Street market in Chiang Mai is another popular destination for tourists. Sellers offer a variety of Thai food and ripe fruits for very affordable prices. There is a non-food section with stalls selling everything from curios to scented candles and essential oils.
