Thailand, a paradise on earth, has a lot to offer to tourists: white sand beaches, lush jungles, tasty food, wild nightlife, and many more. You’ll just love it!
Maybe you’re thinking about the money, budget and how expensive it would be to go. But let me tell you something, the most expensive part of Thailand is getting there. Especially if you live in the Western Hemisphere. Once you’re on the ground, Thailand represents a great place to stretching the value of dollars, which is why it’s long been a standard on the Southeast Asia backpacking circuit.
Why go to Thailand? We’ll give you just a few reasons out of the many you’ll find by yourself:
Let’s start, shall we?
Warm weather and all the virgin beaches where you can just sit in front of the oceand and relax, have all the drinks you want, or go to one, two or three of their many islands. Sick of the cities? Cast Away on the Similan Islands. (Yes please!)
From the cheapest hostels to luxury hotels, your choice, but it has them all. Spas, shopping, all the buddhas around telling you to find yourself and be at peace; and, as if it wasn’t enough, we’ve heard Thailand has one the friendliest population in the world. Get wet and wild at Songkran With The Locals.
