    Have you been to Thailand this winter?

    Not necessarily winter means cold weather and a grey sky. Have you been to Thailand this winter? In November begins the cold season in Thailand with over 20 Celsius degrees, and is therefore the best time to go there for holidays!

    Auto Europe offers car hire in various cities throughout Thailand so that you can enjoy the most of Thailand's attractions. Krung Thep - 'the city of angels' as Bangkok is called by Thai people, is the place where the 'old' intertwines with the 'modern' architecture. Thai capital is home to 17th century Buddhist temple Wat Arum, Grand Palace from the 18th century and skyscrapers, express motorways and parks. Bangkok is therefore a mixture of both historical sites and a modern city landscape with great night life.

    Chiang Mai, located in the in the north of the country in the mountains, lures tourists with its beautiful wild, natural landscape. West of Chiang Mai, the Doi Inthanon National Park lies is home to indigenous tribes, Thailand's highest peak, numerous waterfalls and an abundance of wildlife.

    Krabi and Phuket are the best locations for long sunny days, sandy beaches and diving, whereas Pattaya is a golf and water sports paradise that attracts tourists from all around the world. You can enjoy a relaxing Thai massage in one of the region's many wellness centres.

    If you choose to travel to Thailand and stay there up to 30 days, you do not need to apply for a visa, as British citizens obtain one automatically upon arrival, providing you do not fail to present a return travel ticket.

    Buddhist sites and temples are to be found in many places around Thailand. You may enter temples only barefoot and should be properly dressed inside. Climbing on a Buddha statue and taking a photo is regarded as disrespectful.

    It is becoming more common to tip in Thailand. Usually 10% is added to bills in restaurants and hotels for the service, but you may also leave a 20-100 baht tip. Porters and parking attendants - 20 bahts, taxis - a rounding up of the bill. The Thai people like to bargain while smiling and good bargaining skills may help you get 10-40% off the original price.

    Tourist travelling to Thailand can obtain 7% VAT refund on goods purchased in Thailand. All you need to do, is to fill in the VAT refund form in the store you got your souvenirs from, and present it at the airport VAT refund counter along with receipts and your passport.

    Enjoy your holidays in Thailand!
