Bangkok

Sure, Thailand's capital may be seen as a busy transport hub, but stay a little longer and venture beyond the markets and nightspots of Khao San Road; you'll find a complex city that is in part charming olde-world, and part modern, cosmopolitan metropolis. Stuff your face in Chinatown, explore Bangkok's temples, canals and water markets, and discover mind-blowing mega-malls in Sukhumvit.

Chiang Mai

Head north to Chiang Mai to dig a little deeper into Thailand's rich culture. This city is quite unlike anywhere else in Thailand - it's buried in jungle-clad hills that are home to remote tribes, and full of golden temples, fun festivals and heaps of adventure activities such as zip-lining, elephant encounters and mountain biking. And then there's the food.

Thailand FAQs

When is the best time to visit Thailand?

Thailand's hot all year round but it does experience some pretty awesome thunderstorms, particularly in the rainy season which falls between May and October, but don't let this put you off. The downpours are usually short and sharp and the scenery can be pretty spectacular - plus you'll bag yourself some sweet deals on accommodation and flights if you go during off-peak times!

What should be on my Thailand packing list?

It's easy to get carried away with your packing list when you're taking a trip to such an exotic country, but if you're planning on travelling to multiple locations, pack light! Don't forget a 220-240 AC voltage, or a universal plug adaptor, mosquito repellent, earplugs, a waterproof and waterproof bag if you're visting during rainy season, and comfortable shoes for all the exploring you'll be doing. Don't, under any circumstances, forget to organise travel insurance before you go!

Do I need a visa to travel to Thailand?

As long as you’re in possession of a valid New Zealand passport with at least six months validity left on it, you’ll be granted a free visa upon arrival in Thailand for a max stay of 30 days. Upon arrival in Thailand, be prepared to present a confirmed airline ticket departing Thailand within the 30 days, or an overland bus, train or tour ticket. Rules are subject to change, so always reconfirm with the appropriate government agencies before travel.
