We heard what the women of Bangalore had to say about Thailand and now we are stoked to share what Pune had to say about Thailand. From being called safe and a shopper’s paradise to being gifted with pristine beaches and aromatic spicy foods, it’s a potpourri of everything. 

All of this makes Thailand an ideal country with a medley of culture, history, and modernity. Giving justice to its alternative names, ‘Land of the Free’ and 'A Land of Smiles' it welcomes you with smiling and friendly people everywhere. 

Read on as we take you on a journey through Thailand with ladies sharing stories, travel tips, and chuckles, as they sip on cocktails. Our HolidayIQ community members loved this experience and we're sure you will too!

1. Starting off with a taste of Thailand!

We made the ladies at our community meet-up extra happy by making the sous chef of Baan Tao, Hyatt demonstrate two Thai delicacies- Som Tam, a raw papaya salad and Tom Kha Kai, a coconut sour and spicy soup.

The aroma of food filled the room in seconds and nobody could wait to taste the dishes. The event started on a tasty and happy note, indeed!

HolidayIQ community member Surabhi shares 'The soup was delicious! It felt like I was in Thailand. The ingredients, the smell, and the whole experience took me back to my Thailand trip. A very happy memory!’


2. For a never before Thailand experience!

In a group of 28 women, there were countless interesting stories shared, you wouldn't believe it's just one country being talked about.

Ever heard of a  half cloudy and half sunny beach? That’s Jomtien beach for you, situated 3 km south of Pattaya. With the Phuket International Airport runway near the Naiyang beach, you can get a stunning shot of an airplane flying over you.

HolidayIQ community member Ankita shares 'I went to Phuket with my boyfriend. Thanks to a local's help we found a spot on the Nai Yang Beach where the Phuket airport's runway is very close to it. You could capture a picture with the airplane above your head! We hired a photographer and got our picture clicked, that's our most favourite pic.'

3. Solo tripping for women here is SAFE!

It's a known fact Thailand is very safe for women. Women are travelling solo now more than ever as they feel it is empowering and exciting to explore on their own.

With friendly people and diverse culture, it's a comfortable and accepting environment. You will also get to meet so many other travellers from around the globe and the chances of making friends are relatively higher.

HolidayIQ community member Neha shares 'I've gone to Thailand about 8 to 9 times. I always feel safe there when I'm by myself, with a gang of girls or family. With visa on arrival available for Indians, my spontaneous trips are always to Thailand! I am very comfortable in my own skin here.'


4. A temple run in this country for the ultimate peace of mind!

A majority of women travellers admitted how they made it a point to visit temples when in Thailand to attain the elusive peace of mind.

A country rich in culture and history, that also has places like the Big Buddha Temple in Koh Samui, Tiger Cave Temple in Krabi, Wat Pho in Bangkok, and Wat Phra That Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai could be perfect for a spiritual sojourn.

HolidayIQ community member Shilpa shares 'I was going through an emotional time when I visited Thailand. But after visiting the temples in this beautiful country I got back peace and found myself in the process.'

Thailand takes pride in its public transportation. They have several public means of transport like the metro, skytrain, buses, Chao Phraya Express boats or boats on the small water canals which run throughout the city.

Apart from the famous tuk-tuks and multicolored taxis, the convenience of both English and Thai announcements and signages makes travel easier for tourists.

HolidayIQ community member Shreyasi says 'I’ve visited 69 countries! And I’ve gone to Thailand alone 6 times. I still feel like it’s not enough. There is so much to see and thanks to their top-notch transport system, it’s easier to get around.'

Travelling to Thailand is now easier than ever so ladies, pack your bags, Thailand is calling you! This country is everything and more you could ask for.
