Introducing Thailand

Make the most out of your trip to Thailand
While Thailand is famed for its world-class cuisine and southern beach getaways on stunning karstic islands, the country also offers a rich cultural history as the only Southeast Asian nation to have avoided European colonial rule. The spectacular natural beauty in the north is also not to be missed, home to a third of Thailand's extensive network of national parks.

When is the best time to visit? 
Thailand is best visited between November and February, the most popular time for travelers due to the reliably pleasant weather. It’s possible to travel to Thailand during summer months, but keep in mind that high temperatures, humidity, and heavy bouts of rain should be expected between April and October. Aiming for shoulder seasons can reward you with fewer crowds and lower prices, though the weather is less predictable.

Where to go in Thailand?
While you may be planning to spend your vacation lying on southern Thailand’s pristine beaches, there are priceless experiences to consider throughout the country. Make the long flight worth it by immersing yourself in Thailand’s nature and culture, learning about a different way of life and exploring the country’s unique landscapes.

The Thai islands are known to have their own localized weather systems, so make sure to speak to an expert as to which would suit your needs and fits best with your date of departure. Trekking and cycling can be great methods to get yourself into the rural communities of northern Thailand and experience the real heart of the country. 

How many days do I need?
One week would give you plenty of time to get a good feel for one section of Thailand, but if you’re planning a more encompassing visit, then you would be better off planning for eight days to two weeks. This would give you enough time for some active adventures in the north before having a few days of relaxation down south.

Overall our experience in North Thailand was more than amazing. Our moments with my (private) group members were irreplaceable and we highly recommend Kimkim for adventure and extreme destinations. The places we visited were really difficult to reach them without a local guide being comfortable and familiar with the people and the place. Every single day was unique and different. We were able not only to experience for a few hours some villages in the jungle but also to stay for some nights and live the local and simple life. Kimkim is a really trustful company with many advantages and will definitely choose them again for our next destinations.
