Phuket surprises positively. Bangla Road in Phuket, more precisely on Patong Beach, is world famous. Ballermann and loud music is great for singles. For everyone else, such as couples or families, Patong is not necessarily suitable, nor is it particularly romantic or even family-friendly.
But Phuket is a huge area. The old town of Phuket, Patong Beach and many other areas on the beach offer a wide variety.

The following is a lot of useful, nice and nice for a short trip up to a world trip. Gift ideas for friends and acquaintances, for the son or daughter or just for yourself :)
Ko Samui is south of Koh Phangan. One of the most popular destinations in Thailand. Much quieter than Bangkok and so how tropical Thailand imagines.
The island is not particularly large. Within one afternoon you could circumnavigate Ko Samui nearly even with the scooter. This is what makes these islands so interesting. It comes down to a feeling of tropical island paradise.
You are now in Pattaya. In your hotel you go to take a shower first. Iam sure because it will be hot outside, as it is always. Then pull on your shorts and a pair of flip-flops or some other shoes. A shirt and of course your wallet. The plan is for a coffee, going to the beach and visit a shopping mall. But that's not why you're in Pattaya. So after your sightseeing..
The corona pandemic has been affecting global life for months. Thailand is not spared from this. [Editor's note: reported and actual cases differ very likely] Despite the low number of infections, the tourism industry including the associated economy comes to an abrupt halt.

Koh Samui is always a good tip for a period of up to 10 days. Quite a few prefer to stay forever. The island is located near the islands of KoTao and KoPhangan. Island hopping is ideal here. There is a good selection of hotels. From hostel to luxury. Tip: It is very quiet here in the off-season.
"fun" tourism - Some hate it, the others come precisely why to Thailand.
"fun" tourism in Pattaya attracts every year about 10 million visitors. Approximately 40,000 women have your affection and offer "fun"ual services in Pattaya. A men's paradise and what you will sure like if it is that what you are looking for. Of course there are other good reasons to visit the town south of Bangkok but the offer of "fun" workers can be seen throughout the city and is part of the cityscape starting in the late afternoon.
From downtown Bangkok to Pattaya
From downtown or from Bangkok Airport (Suvarnabhumi Airport) to Pattaya, a taxi ride with prices from 1000 baht (around 25€). A bus ride already for about 5 to 7 €. If you should arrive at night or for the first time, you will be grateful for a quick and comfortable taxi. The more convenient method is therefore the taxi. The cheapest way a non-stop bus. So a good effective method is the bus too. Don`t worry. The journey takes 1.5 to 3 hours depending on the traffic. Buses run from 7-22 pm. Taxis around the clock. Bangkok to Pattaya !
There is the street in which it is super cheap and the hottest girls work. Many of the girls there could work in Go Go bars. In this street, most bars and girls are in one spot. You can only drink a beer or go directly short-time with your chosen one. The prices are really great with 800 to 1200 Baht (maximum) and 200-300 Baht room rent.
Travel time & weather Thailand
The best time to travel to Thailand is between November and May. This is the general opinion. The "best" travel time because between these months the "cooler" winter in Thailand.
The TravelBubbles only apply to some cities in Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Myanmar Cambodia, New Zealand, Laos. These are treated preferentially. The virus is under control there. Possible solutions for entry for European tourists were not mentioned at all.
Whether for the first time in Thailand or a few times. Driving scooters in Thailand is always a hot topic. You can be flexible and explore the island, for example. If you live in a hotel just outside, a scooter to the beach or to a hotspot is advantageous. On the subject, however, other people point out the risk of an accident directly.
Never far, there is always at least one restaurant with free internet (WIFI). The prices for a Sim card are so cheap that you don't need to save money here. At every airport and in every tourist area there is at least one shop nearby that would like to sell you a SIM card. In the big shopping centers you are guaranteed to find a shop from "AIS", "true move" or "dtac".
