When to Visit Thailand?

You can visit Thailand any time of the year, as the temperature does not change much with seasons due to its tropical climate. November to March, when the monsoon rains falter, is the best time to visit. If you are going to travel in the first weeks of the year, then you must take into consideration that the country is more crowded and expensive during this time of the year. 



For some, heavy Monsoon rains prevail from May to October may be romantic, but it may also be a disadvantage for others. So you can make your travel plan according to the climatic conditions of the country.  





How to Get to Thailand?

Those who hold a Maroon passport and want to travel from Türkiye and to Thailand are exempt from visa for 30 days, while Grey, Green and Black passport holders are exempt from visa for 90 days. If your trip exceeds, you must apply for a visa at the country representatives. 




When visiting Thailand, make sure that you have your Turkish passport with you and that you have already made your hotel reservations. Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months. If you are going to stay in the country for less than 30 days and go by plane, then a visa is not required. Our article Bruges, A Fairytale-Like Medieval city on our Barut Hotels Blog page can also be inspiring for travel enthusiasts.
