  2. 2. INTRODUCTION  Stephen M. Timms has nearly three decades of managerial and executive experience that currently has him working in Abu Dhabi. Stephen M. Timms’ taste for international travel extends beyond the professional realm, and he maintains a keen interest in travel throughout Asia. Here are a couple tips for US travelers to one the continent’s most popular destinations for Americans: Thailand. Know the seasons. Thailand is known for its exquisite weather. Indeed, the months November through March generally offer dry skies and comfortable temperatures. However, these preferable conditions commonly bring inflated rates for the large crowds of tourists that flock to them. April through June can be very hot, although coastal destinations tend to be cooler. The monsoons hit in July through October and can cause major flooding, limited access to popular island locales, and general inconvenience.
  3. 3. THAI TRAVEL  In view of these conditions, visitors should consider their budget, desired destination, and their ability to handle heat and/or rain when booking their trip. Brush up on temple etiquette. Thailand is filled with beautiful, architecturally spectacular temples, and many of them are open to tourists. Visitors should remember that the temples are considered holy places and must act respectfully if they want a warm welcome. Monks, for instance, are prohibited from having physical contact with women; thus, female visitors should avoid even casually brushing past them. Likewise, the locals expect modesty when entering a temple. Travelers might consider carrying a scarf to cover their chest and shoulders if they want to visit one of these sites.
