I visited Thailand last winter for Christmas break. The weather gets hot here when the sun is up and cools when it is nightfall. I went there with my friends and stayed most of my time in Bangkok and Phuket for 1 month. Bangkok is a perfect place for shopping and nightlife. I visited a lot of shopping places there bought things for my family, but I can say that it's cheaper in my country, the Philippines. Thai were not tourist friendly, they even asked for tip not waiting for you to give it voluntarily. Though overall it was an amazing experience there.
