Time for Thailand

Posted: 13/04/2013 00:00

A rite of passage for any intrepid traveller, Thailand ticks just about every box in the 'holiday needs' category, from fascinating rainforests and sacred temples to stunning scenery and sublime sandy beaches - and that's before we even get to the incredible food or welcoming people. Needless to say, we at Black Tomato are fans.

So in dedication to all things Thai, we've created a newspaper called The Thaimes (we can't resist a good pun), an all-encompassing guide to everything you need to know about Thailand, from which cookery schools are worth their salt to what time to set sail for our favourite floating markets; we've even thrown in some of the vital vocabulary to help you along your way.

To give you a Thaimes teaser, we've reluctantly whittled the long list down to a few of our very favourite things about Thailand to tingle your travel taste buds.

After a stop off in buzzing Bangkok or a trek through Chiang Mai’s jungles, the perfect come-down is to come down south to one of Thailand’s myriad of tropical islands, kitted out with idyllic beaches and chilled-out vibes that banish thoughts of a return to the mainland to the very back of your mind. True to Black Tomato form, we’re partial to the lesser known islands , tucked away from the mainstream and cloaking untouched sands under thickets of lush palm trees where we’d happily stow away with nothing but some sunscreen, a good book and possibly a Thai massage to put the icing on the cake.
