Thailand for Single Women

Bangkok and Pattaya earlier and now Phuket, Krabi, Koh Samui, and Chiang Mai have attracted a lot of tourists from India. Krabi and Koh Samui is where the couples or honeymooners are going. On the other hand, Chiang Mai, Phuket and even Hua Hin have attracted single woman and backpackers. Bangkok’s China Town is still the number one location where a single woman and backpackers reside. Thailand for single women has lots to offer, adventure sports, Thai cooking classes, hot balloon rides, nature trails, water sports, vibrating nightlife, awesome food and many more.

Thailand offers Indian citizens visa on arrival. The visa form you fill is one page. The formalities are very minimal you can basically get up and go. The hostels start from INR 500 and good hotels start at INR 2000. You can fill your stomach with INR 100. Thailand has plenty of Indian and vegetarian restaurants but they are expensive. A Volvo bus travel from Bangkok to Pattaya will cost you just INR 300. If you are living in Chennai, Kolkata, Kochi or Goa you can get airfare as low as INR 10000 return. The flights take four hours twenty-five minutes and they are just one and a half hour ahead (let say if India time is 13:00 hrs. than Thailand time would be 14:30 hrs).

The Hill Station

Chiang Mai

I would recommend Chiang Mai for first time single woman travelers. A quiet town compared to the rest of Thailand cities. It has a limited nightlife but enough for you to not get bored. It has got awesome nightclubs and beer bars. Chiang Mai is a hill station and Doi Inthanon is the highest mountain in Chiang Mai and Thailand. There are trekking options available to reach Doi Inthanon National Park. The temperatures remain between 10-12 degrees. Now for me, the best thing in Chiang Mai is the Hot Air Balloon Ride. It is expensive at 10000 THB but worth it, so plan and save money. The other thing I love to do is there are a lot of Thai cooking classes going on in Chiang Mai. Do join one of them to learn authentic Thai cooking.

You can check what all do in Chiang Mai here.

All modes of transport are available

How to Reach Chiang Mai

You can easily reach Chiang Mai from Bangkok, flights, train and bus options are available. There are no direct busses from Suvarnabhumi Airport. Buses leave Bangkok for Chiang Mai from the Mo Chit Bus Station in the Chatuchak Market area. A train takes 12-15 hours and they have very good trains, the flight time is one hour fifteen minutes. I have done a detailed page on travel to Chaing Mai, click the link below.

The Island

Koh Samui

Thailand for Single Women, next destination is Koh Samui. It got into the limelight due to the full moon parties. I have done a full blog here; you can check all the details about the party. It is safe for a single woman and it would be safer if you book a hotel in Koh Samui itself. The only precaution you need to take is don’t get drunk, as there are chances you will be. Koh Samui also has a lot of good beaches. People who are looking for sunsets should stay in the west of Koh Samui. The touristy side is the east and if you are looking for good beaches then South Chaweng and Choeng Mon would be the best options. You can check all the beaches here.

Also, check Koh Samui Vegetarian Restaurants here.

By flights, buses, trains and ferry

Bangkok to Koh Samui Direction

The easiest way is always the flight with a flight time of one hour and fifteen minutes. You can also take a flight to Surat Thani Airport than take a ferry to Koh Samui. It is cheaper this way and you get a more scenic route. The bus is the cheapest way to reach Koh Samui. All buses and trains stop at Surat Thani from there you have to a ferry to Koh Samui Island.

Resort Town


It is most suited for honeymooners. Krabi have a lot of good seaside resorts. If you are looking for sea life and want to rejuvenate Krabi is the place. The city atmosphere is pretty laid back. The Emerald Pool in Krabi is the number one suggestion for things you should do in Krabi. This is an underground natural spring that gets its fresh water supply from the limestone hill above. Just a short distance from Krabi town and nestled into the jungle, the Krabi hot springs really are a natural Jacuzzi. It is said that it cures rheumatism, gout, and sciatica. Krabi also has its shares of Karaoke Bars and Live Music Bars. The best pubs are at Ao Nang beach.
