Thailand Restaurants are everything. Thailand has the best of cuisines from the world, serving from Indian, French to Thai cuisines. Some of the restaurants in this country are –
The Saffron at Banyan Tree Samui is a terrace restaurant overlooking the ocean. They serve authentic and sophisticated Thai food. They have both indoor and outdoor dining areas.

There are many websites and travel guide contacts in the society ready to offer help or advice regarding your trip to any place for that matter. Let’s just say someone is off to Thailand. It is advised to the tourists that they do not follow the instructions from all their sources. Do not skip any city just because the other people said so.
Avoid booking your tour plan from some unknown source just to save up some money. This would land you up some dangerous and unwanted situations. This would also, might force you to befriend people who you are not comfortable with or cannot connect with. Another flaw in booking your tickets from an unknown source would lead to a situation where you would not be able to gain the maximum fun from the money you had paid for the trip. This would lead to an unsatisfactory equation between the tourists and the travel guides.
Another major mistake most tourists do is the misallocation of their time. People often spend too much time on the islands partying rather than spending time on museums, theatres, and parks where one can learn about Thai culture and tradition. People often spend very little time in temples and sanctuaries despite the exposure and art one gets to know from there. This would lead to less satisfaction and irritation among the tourists for making rash and impulsive decisions.
Another major mistake most tourists do and later suffer from is packing the wrong type of clothes. People who visit Thailand often only carry T-shirts and shorts. This is a big blunder everyone should avoid. Agreed, there is this one zone for comfort, but there is also one more sector that most of the people don't give heed to. That is, certain places in Thailand demand certain etiquette and appropriate fashion choices. By not following this advice, the people are often deprived of the peaceful and enjoyable trip that they were promised or had expected.
This one's not a mistake but a misguided thought. The people should not expect everyone in Thailand to know or understand English. Often people get awkward when they realize that most of the Thai population does not understand English.
Another significant mistake people make avoiding traveling by train. They take up this decision contemplating their comfort zones and saving time. But according to sources and people who have already visited Thailand, one should not avoid or abandon travel through the train across the country.
Visiting Thailand would be one of the best decisions a person can ever take. The tourists will be made aware of the cultural variations, their traditions; their exposure will be increased as they will be allowed to meet new people with different mindsets and backgrounds, etc.
