Bangkok was founded in 1782 by the first monarch of the present Chakri dynasty. It is now the country's spiritual, cultural, diplomatic, commercial and educational hub.
Chiang Mai is one of the few places in Thailand where it is possible to find in the heart of the city centuries-old chedis and temples next to modern convenience stores and boutique hotels.
Located approximately 862 kilometers south of Bangkok is Phuket, Thailand's largest island, which is often dubbed as the pearl of the Andaman, or the pearl of the south.
Travel Light Its The Weigh To Go
It certainly makes sense to travel lighter these days. Many of the airlines are charging additional fees for overweight luggage. They have a 50 to 75 lbs. weight maximum per bag.
With large suitcases weighting up to 20 lbs. empty that does not leave a lot of room for clothes and other assorted items. It's time to learn to travel more efficiently.
Then look for the lighter weight brands. Many pieces of luggage, that are now advertised as "light weight", are in reality no lighter than the old pieces. Make sure you actually lift the case before purchasing. You do not have to sacrifice quality either, as there are many truly lightweight cases available in the better fabrics with the better wheel systems.
Shoes and sneakers are much heavier than clothing. Check out the many travel accessories available. Take along travel sizes of toothpaste, shampoo, and all to the other assorted sundries you cannot live without. If you are packing a hairdryer, take one that is compact and designed for travel. Also think about bringing a small travel steamer instead of an iron. These are lighter weight and work quite well, steaming out all of the packing wrinkles quickly and efficiently.
Or there are also several portable scales available that you can hook to the luggage and lift. This will save you the arguments and the surcharges you'll get at the airport. There's also new luggage that just became available with an actual scale built in to the top of the suitcase. Of course, that will eliminate the excuse at the airport that (a) you did not know or (b) that it weighed less at home!
There are also lightweight reversible jackets that can be dressed up or down. These are very lightweight and completely wrinkle free so they are a natural choice.
Most trips allow for 2 bags per person, as well as one carry-on and one personal bag.
