Thailand – The Magical Country of the Unknown
There are so many beautiful places in the far expanses of this world but each place has something new and exotic to offer you. Thailand is one of those places which everyone has on their to-do list when it comes to vacations. Located in the south-eastern part of Asia, Thailand is a colorful place filled with tropical beaches and adventures that you could embark on regularly like walking street tours and so on. Thailand has something to offer for everyone, be it for families looking to unwind together or a solo backpacker who just wants to relax and meet new friends in a place where they can ignore all the restraints of monotony. Thailand is also interestingly known as the Country of Smiles. As an adult, you will definitely have heard about the infamous sinful pleasures disguised as massages in the fair city of Bangkok or maybe seen the bluest waters in the numerous beaches present all over Thailand. You have missed out on the magic of possibilities that Thailand has to offer if you have never been there but it is never too late to give the country a chance to impress you.

Weather and Climate in Thailand
The climate in Thailand is as can be expected of tropical islands with the weather being divided distinctly into three parts – the summer (March-May), rainy season- (June- October) and winters from (November t0 February). If you were thinking about going for a whirl around in Thailand, the best recommended time period would be November to February since it remains mildly sunny without the possibility of rain. Basically, it is the best time to indulge in all of the water and adventure sports without the sun burning through your skin and you getting all sweaty within 15 minutes of being under the Sun.
Getting Around in Thailand
If you want to have an authentic Thai experience, you will need to know the kinds of transport locally so that you can save your money as well as mingle with the locals to get a first-hand feel of Thailand. The most popular modes of transportation are tuk-tuks which are basically taxis but of the open-air nature. They are expensive in comparison but are worth the amazing experience. Then there is the BTS Skytrain which is an analogy of the Indian metro or the London tube. There are a number of boats, trains and small airports in various districts to help you travel far and wide across Thailand.
Work Visas in Thailand
Thailand, occupying an endless sea of opportunities as it does, provides a ton of employment and business options. You have to apply for a non-immigrant visa in the Royal Embassy or Consulate General of Thailand and finish all the paperwork before you decide to come down to the country. There are non-immigrant visas for any kind of work or pleasure trips that you want to engage in here out of which the most important categories are Non Immigrant Visa Category B (for the teaching profession or those who have business to conduct in the island), Category B-A (the company applied visa for the people who have undertaken work on their behalf or under them) and many more.
Additional Information on Thailand
Thailand has had a booming economy over the past years which is mostly dependent on exports. The Thai economy has contributions from exports (having the largest share), construction and mining, agricultural, trade sectors, logistics and communication industries. The currency that is used in the islands is the Thai Baht which sounds like hot – 1 US Dollar amounts to approximately 31.9 Thai Bahts. This are the type of people who are very conscious with a side helping of shyness in their personality. The Thai language is spoken in Thailand which is why most people do not know any English there so if you are going to enjoy an authentic experience, it would probably help if you learn some basic Thai phrases for your journey. The work culture in the Thai environment is formal – Thais have it ingrained in them to be polite so you would not get to know even if they are displeased with you. Thai people take time to know you which is why it is important to be formal and pleasant if you want to build a good business network. The major public holidays(march-may) in Thailand is during the Songkran Festival which is the official Thai New Year, Mother’s Day, the English New Year’s Day, Chakri Festival and so on.
