Thailand Travellers Explore The Mystery Of Thailand





Thailand is teeming with tourists, perhaps it is because of blend of mystery and excitement, the mix of ancient lore and modern nightlife. Thailand, has been known as Siam for centuries, Thailand has been a crossroads of culture and religion and the 21st century has not changed that fact.

If you are a Buddhist, it is the destination of a lifetime, if you are simply one who enjoys witnessing a culture far different than your own; again it is the destination of life time. For the devotee of Buddha; Thailand is home to some of the most unique and unusual Buddhist temples in the world.

And even if you are not a Buddhist, to stare at the emerald Buddha, crafted entirely of jasper quartz or jade is staggering to the imagination; the jade is dated to the 15th century, with the murals not being quite as old.

Add to that the fact that travelling in Thailand (not counting the airfare to get there) is one of the most inexpensive destinations worldwide. Hotels, food, shopping all are priced to make even a tourist with a modest budget, travel in style and eat like a King (a bowl of noodles cost less than one Dollar US)

If you are either the type of traveller who goes with a group, or strikes out on your own; either is find in Thailand with hotels to accommodate any budget. Backpackers can choose Kaosan road and if your tastes are more refined, you can choose packages from $40 to $100 or even $200 a night. The service is outstanding and staff will cater to your every whim.

Bangkok is full of activity, home to The National Museum of Thai art, musical instruments, weapons, woodcarving, ceramics, clothing and sacred Buddha images. While you're here, don't miss the Vinmanmek Teak Mansion, the largest teak structure standing. And of course you'll want to visit The Royal Elephant Museum and Dusuit Zoom.

ROYAL ELEPHANT MUSEUM: The Royal Elephant Museum (this was first a stable for elephants commissioned by King Chulalongkorn) was an area or enclosure in the Palace and would eventually lay claim to containing the famous white elephant. This elephant was purported to have spiritual powers and was later elevated royal status in 1906.

While there are many ways to travel, I feel that coming to Thailand with a tour is not the best way to see the country. Certainly you will hit the high spots, but you will be surrounded by many other tourists, many love to discover Thailand more intimately. Thailand is a country that loves visitors, has kind and caring people and getting from one place to the other is easy, with the skytrain, taxi or tuk-tuk.

TUK-TUK: The tuk-tuk is like a small taxi and is widely used for transporting people in Southeast Asia. The name itself is derived from the sound of the engine. Tourist seem to like them since in times of increased traffic, they are often faster than a taxi. Be certain of the price you are paying for your ride and bargain for your fare, it is not expected to pay the first price you are quoted in Thailand.

Mens Fashion Watches a Designer Statement
Watches are considered as creations of art or an invaluable piece of jewellery. Initially, wristwatches were made as decorative bracelets for women, while men made use of pocket watches. It was at the time of World War 1 that the fad of wristwatches for men caught on with the military finding them easier to use than the pocket watches. They have since then grown to be one of the popular and elegant fashion accessories for men. Nowadays a watch is not necessarily required to tell the time with...
