Before Backpacking In Thailand

Before you embark on the long journey to the Land of Smiles, here are a few tips and things to know that will make your life so much easier once you get here.


1. Everyone is trying to rip you off

Be wary of any and all “deals” you may be offered here.

Barter with everyone, and barter absolutely everything. Do not get in that suspiciously cheap tuk tuk for a bargain tour of Bangkok — you’re going to end up in a lot of gem stores, buddy.

Do your research before purchasing any sort of tour package or item to see what people normally pay. This seems like common sense, but you would be surprised at how many foreigners (ahem, everyone) get ripped off while traveling in Thailand.

When is Loy Krathong festival?

 

loi_kratong1

"Loi" means "to float". "Krathong" is a raft about a handspan in diameter traditionally made from a section of banana tree trunk (although modern-day versions use specially made bread 'flowers' and may use styrofoam), decorated with elaborately-folded banana leaves, flowers, candles, incense sticks etc. During the night of the full moon, many people will release a small raft like this on a river. Governmental offices, corporations and other organizations also build much bigger and more elaborate rafts, and these are often judged in contests. In addition, fireworks and beauty contests take place during the festival.

Phuket Vegetarian Festival

phuket-vegetarianMost people in Thailand become vegetarian at various points in their lives. Many give up meat for life, but often it is a temporary thing, but a whole range of cuisines has grown up to cater for this taste.

Here, Phuket.Com looks at vegetarian food in Thailand and the potential benefits of eating it. In the West, vegetarianism, although growing in popularity, is still very much a minority choice, but in Thailand it is common.

Known in Thai as mung-sa-wi-rat, it is practiced by most Thais from time to time, sometimes as a way to cleanse the body after a long period of feeling unwell, sometimes simply in order to improve one’s Karma. Thais of Chinese descent will often take things further, practicing something closer to veganism, and eating no animal products. This is known as gin jay. They also avoid eating plants such as onions and garlic, partly because the eating of these requires the plants to be uprooted and therefore killed.

For those who have never heard of it, the name Vegetarian Festival may not sound very interesting. But the festival contains much more than what its name may suggest. In fact, it is the most exciting, most significant and most widely observed tradition of Phuket province. It ranks with the Songkran of Chiang Mai, the Spring Festival of Nakhon Sawan and the Loi Krathong of Sukhothai as one of the most celebrated and magnificent festivals of this country.

It's easy to catch a quick bite to eat in Bangkok

 

street_food_bangkok1

You will never go hungry in Thailand. If you like Asian food, you can eat as much as you like on the streets of Bangkok. This picture was taken along the street at Siam Square after office hour. The street is transformed into a food lover’s dream serving a mouth-watering array of authentic Thai dishes and snacks. FYI, some of the best and least expensive food in Thailand is served by the street vendors. They can be found on nearly every other street corner and in local markets , anything from grilled bananas to bugs on a stick in Bangkok.

Many snacks choices consist of pork. There are pork sausage, bacon sticks, grilled fried pork, deep fried pork skin, roasted pork, ah, it was good for the pork lovers, maybe not exactly so great for health, however. Grilled pork strips on bamboo string is a pretty common snack that can be found at many places. The meat is marinated and carries a pretty salty taste, while pretty good, eating too much of these will make you very thirsty. Yang Thais love these marinated meat sticks, grilled over charcoal. Pork is usually the tastiest.

Floating Markets around Bangkok

There are many floating markets and riverside markets around Bangkok. Some of these are new and others have been revitalized. This is part one of my comprehensive list of Thai floating markets that you can easily do as a day trip from Bangkok.

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

damnoen_saduak_floating_market

 
The most famous floating market for foreign tourists is Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in Ratchaburi Province. If you want that picture perfect postcard shot I recommend this place. However, if you don’t want any foreigners in the picture that you must go there early. By 9 a.m. there is a traffic jam of tourist boats. Garden.Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is in Ratchaburi Province, about 100 kms southwest of Bangkok. You can go there by bus 78 from the Southern Bus Terminal. A trip that takes just under two hours. This goes via Nakhon Pathom on highway 4. If you like, you could stay there the night and catch an early morning bus to Samut Songkhram which passes Damnoen Saduak. Many people go here as part of a tour that then goes to the Rose Garden in the afternoon.

Taling Chan Floating Market
taling-chan-floating-marketA famous market that is actually in Bangkok is Taling Chan Floating Market. However, don’t go there expecting a canal full of boats with vendors selling fruit and other produce. This is more a riverside market that has a number of boats tied up alongside the pier. However, it is still a good place to go and soak up the atmosphere. The canals were the road system of the past and anything you needed would pass your front door. In addition, there were sometimes gatherings of vendors on boats which is their version of our land based markets. Today, floating markets are few and far between. Probably the most picturesque, at Damnoern Saduak, is now almost exclusively run for foreign tourists. Recently I have been visiting some alternative floating markets. On Sunday I went to Taling Chan Floating Market on the Chak Phra Canal on the Thonburi side of Bangkok. I have passed here before several times when I rented a long-tailed boat to tour the Thonburi canals.

Chang Beer

changbeerThailand's award-winning premium beer has gained a loyal following from discerning beer drinkers since arriving on Australian shores, and is now finding its way to the foodie's kitchen - both as a
complement and key ingredient in Thai and Asian-inspired dishes- and we wanted to bring a bit of the Chang Beer experience to you!

Produced in a state-of-the-art brewery located in Wang, Noi, Thailand, Chang Beer is brewed using pure water drawn from deep wells. This brewing process creates a full-bodied beer and gives Chang its distinctive citrus notes, perfectly complementing the exotic flavours and textures of Thai cuisine- traditionally as an accompaniment and now as a key ingredient in recipes.

Chang Beer is a 100% malt beer, Chang is the Thai word for elephant, an animal that has cultural and historical significance to Thailand, which is why the logo for Chang Beer features two elephants facing one another.

The distinctive rich, golden honey and colour and complex aromas- a smokey peaty blend of sweet, green apples and full-bodied vanilla- are precursors to the well-balanced and mild maltiness which combines with a hoppy character to create a full-boded beer with unique citrus notes.
