In the early part of the year, you can expect the Chinese New Year which means big celebrations in Chinatown in Bangkok and Phuket.

Pamper and adventure in Thailand
Be sure to include some down time after all of your fun, with some sun, beach and perhaps a Thai massage? This unique treatment is a massage with herbs and specific pressured technique that manipulates the tissue to leave the individual feeling relaxed.
If you find yourself re-energised after a day of pampering, then explore the historical ruins that have been around for centuries, it’s a true wonder to explore the history and natural beauty of a country. If ruins and rivers are not your idea of fun, then there are other fun activities such as diving around the islands, cooking courses or even personal improvement courses.
