Nightlife info

With its mixture of exoticism, romance, sense of adventure and plain excitement, nightlife in Thailand is unique. Of course, anyone who has never been to Thailand instantly conjures up visions of A Go-Go bars and sleazy back alley massage parlours; it’s true but not wholly representative of a country that has beautiful traditional dancing, an irrepressible culinary scene and lively bars and nightclubs.

‘One night in Bangkok’ can indeed make a hard man humble but one night in Chiang Mai can charm and one night in Phuket make you longing for more. Enjoy.Mixx-Discotheque

Culture and history info

Mainland Thai culture is heavily influenced by Buddhism. However, unlike the Buddhist countries of East Asia, Thailand's Buddhists follow the Theravada school, which is arguably closer to its Indian roots and places a heavier emphasis on monasticism.

Bangkok is at the start of many visitors' itineraries, and while a modern city, it has a rich cultural heritage. Most visitors at least take in the Grand Palace, a collection of highly decorated buildings and monuments. It is home to Wat Phra Kaew, the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand that houses the Emerald Buddha. Other cultural attractions include Wat Pho, Wat Arun and Jim Thompson's House, but these are just a fraction of possible sights you could visit.
