It is HOT ..... drink water and eat chips!

It is HOT in Thailand


The hot season in Thailand can be hot as in HOT, HOTTER, HOTTEST! In the early morning at about 6am when I wake-up it is warm like the all night already. But at 9am it starts to be hot and in the afternoon the temperature reaches between 39 en 42 degrees Celsius. And with a super high humidity! Not very pleasant. I am sweating a lot and drinking a lot. I drink about twice as much as I normally drink. And I eat once & while something salty, like chips or drink a Coke.

So if you are traveling in the heat right now DRINK, DRINK and DRINK. And not beer but best is just water. And not too cold as that actually works dehydrating. And eat something salty to compensate for all minerals (salt) you are losing due to sweating.

Tips for traveling in hot weather
  1. Try not to walk in the sun (use an umbrella)
  2. Wake-up early when it not to hot yet (take a rest in the afternoon)
  3. DRINK, DRINK and DRINK .... water.
  4. Eat something salty like chips or french fried
  5. Drink sometimes something like Coke
  6. Do what your body is capable of doing (listen to your body)

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
