Let me tell you why women travellers love Thailand.
For a luxurious trip, Thailand offers the best experience to stay at luxury hotels, world class restaurants, and enjoy the best spas & wellness centres.
Of course, there’s the shopping!
From the word go, Thailand is an adventure to be experienced. The exotic delights and cultural intrigue is unparalleled.
Women travellers love the instagramable cafes, places, delicious food, romantic hotels and the hundreds of dreamy tropical islands scattered along Thailand’s extensive coastline.
Women have different needs and expectations when they travel. Female-friendly experiences for travellers could be a weekend trip with your girlfriends or sometime off flying solo.
So let’s check out and choose your ideal luxurious escape activities in Thailand.
#1 SPA HOLIDAYS + RETREATS
Pampering is good nourishment for the soul. Women need to get away from the world sometimes. We need to collect our thoughts and centre ourselves.
Breathe. Find our balance.
There are health and even spiritual retreats for women-only. You get time off to get in touch with your feelings.
Thailand has many spas all over the country. For real indulgence, consider a time out to enjoy a full wellness and detoxification packages that boost all-round health.
Do take some time to learn a little of the Buddhist lifestyle. Try some meditation. Alternatively, enjoy yoga classes. Melt your cares away in women’s only whirlpool baths. Most luxurious hotels have beautiful baths for you to soak in a vessel of warm, enveloping water.
Cleansing spa cuisine, fitness, physiotherapy, weight-loss techniques, and even holistic treatments can be found in central Bangkok, the beach resorts or in the hill resorts of the North.
A Thai massage is best described as a thousand gentle waves embracing and washing over the body.
#2 LUXURIOUS ACCOMODATIONS
A night of luxury is a delicious treat. We girls love to splurge on romantic hotels. Flowers. Chocolates. Tea time treats.
Thai hotels are an oasis of calm even as you turn just off the highway or within walking distance to the Bangkok Skytrain (BTS) and Bangkok’s Subway (MRT).
Most luxurious stays have impressive outdoor pools and cabanas. Their Sky Bars have the best rooftop view and serve delectable desserts, finger foods and excellent drinks!
Definitely worth the experience, a stay in a contemporary chic hotel or a throwback to colonial times and the golden age of Thai luxury travel.
Look for deals online and you may find that a luxurious night’s sweet dream is within your reach.
#3 FASHIONISTA + SHOPPING
Best girlfriend party is shopping in Thailand. Even if you’re not interested in haute couture or the latest fashion accessories, you can browse the amazing malls or the bustling markets for unique Thai handicrafts and artwork.
Shop worthy places to check out.
Heads up, for shoppers alert in Bangkok.
The Amazing Thailand Grand Sales take place from 15 June to 15 August, where the discounts range from 10% to 80%.
Alternatively many savvy women appreciate the low cost of high-quality tailoring in Thailand. The secret is having your favourite outfits handmade at very little cost and go home with an amazing wardrobe.
Best of all the entire malls close at 11pm so there’s always enough time to browse. So it is very hard not to be a shopaholic in Bangkok.
#4 EATING IN THE BEST RESTAURANTS
How to deal with all the deliciousness that surrounds you in Thailand?
Easy. Just eat three main meals a day just like the rest of the world.
There’s surely enough time to devour all the sugary treats that Bangkok has to offer. You snack between meals. It’s perfectly alright to get a sugar rush in Thailand. Top of my dessert list is Mango & Sticky Rice and Taptim Grob (Water Chestnuts in Coconut Soup).
Save room for Moo Satay, Pad Thai, Som Tum and Gai Yang (Thai-Style Grilled Chicken).
Top chefs and award winning restaurants are aplenty and the taste of authentic Thai food is top notch. Fine Dining or street food, the choice of delicious eats is yours.
#4 NIGHTS OUT CHILLIN’ WITH FRIENDS
Nightlife after dark in Thailand is simply amazing. Many pubs and clubs have mid-week lady’s night’s promotions where it’s possible to enjoy cut-price drinks and food.
Thailand’s famous cabaret shows are popular and boast sumptuous costumes, slapstick comedy and international songs you can sing along with. There are cabaret nights in Bangkok, Pattaya and Chiang Mai worth spending a fun evening out.
Catch the KAAN Show Pattaya, inspired by famous Thai literatures, including Ramayana, Prince Apai Mani, Krai Thong and be mesmerised by the new hybrid of live action and cinema, stage performance and world-class technology.
#5 ADVENTURE + SPORTS
Thailand’s fine weather is perfect for a cruising on a super yacht or island hopping. Check out the pristine coastlines and the beaches in the Andaman Sea and Gulf of Thailand, its bays are perfect for snorkelling and diving.
Indulge in your sporting passion. Women’s golf packages and classes for beginners are great to learn the basics. Seasoned players can improve their skills with tips and tricks.
Muay Thai is a great way to enjoy ultimate fitness while learning a little self-defence.
For real adrenaline junkies, the choice is endless. Choose from the highest Bungee Jump in Pattaya, rock climbing in Krabi, rollerball Zorbubg in Phuket to zip lining in the treetops of the Chiangmai. I suppose the most thrilling ride is the high speed Human Slingshot in Pattaya where you fly through the air in the slingshot.
Just bring along a GoPro for that ultimate holiday video where you earn bragging rights to!
#6 ENJOY THE JOURNEY
Thailand is renowned for its people’s gracious manners and hospitality. Women love coming to Thailand simply because it is a place where they feel safe and can travel independently.
Just remember this; there are only three rules for having a good time in Thailand as a female traveller. Eat all you can. Keep on smiling. Connect with the Thai people; they make the wonderful friends.
You’ll be welcomed with open arms.
