Some Really Great Reasons to Visit Thailand
The beaches on the islands around Thailand are actually even better in real life and must be seen to be believed. There is no point in waiting, order your seat sale tickets to Thailand now, you won’t regret it,
There are so many islands, so many coral reefs, mountain treks and richly grown areas to discover and so many nice people to meet. This truly is the perfect backpacking country. Not to mention cheap hostels. Check for a list of the Top Ten hostels.
A large percent of the population in Thailand are Buddhists, which shows everywhere. The temples, how people are dressed, the festivals, the buildings, the smiles. Thai food world famous and so delicious and diverse that you will never have to eat the same dish twice. It’s a wonderful experience.
Let’s face it we all want to save money and this is where you can do it! Since Bangkok is a “airline hub” for Asia. Flying to other locations is easy and cheap too once you get here. Try Nepal, Bhutan, India, Maynamar, Laos, Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia all with in cheap short haul flights.
Take a canoe, boat or a Kayak and travel with wild monkeys, bath in the waterfalls or swim with sharks, dolphins and turtles. In Thailand there is no limit of what amazing things you can experience. Elephant sanctuaries are great for tourists who are animal lovers, more adventure on one of the country’s many white water rafting trips. There are trails to trek, waves to be surfed, jungles to be zip-lined through.
Incredibly Friendly People:
The people of Thailand are both genuine and friendly and want to do the best for you. No wonder why Thailand is called “The Land of Smiles.”
You can get custom “Taylor made” dresses and suits at very low cost in Thailand. There are many markets to visit with cheap and beautifully hand made handicraft products to discover. Try Chatachit Weekend market in Bangkok one of Asia’s largest outdoor markets, arrive early to avoid the crowds but it’s an adventure just to walk around. If you are looking for luxury brands with much better prices than back home, then Bangkok is the place for you try the exclusive Paragon Mall in downtown Bangkok.
Many think that Thai food is the best food in the world and to top it off, the food is very cheap. Your dollar will go a long way here! The famous Phad Thai, Green Curry Guy and Cashew nut chicken are just a few.
Thailand is incredibly beautiful for diving and snorkeling, and there are many diving trips around the country to choose from. One of the best are around Koh Tao island.
You may find wild elephants, snakes and monkeys to name a few. It doesn’t matter if you are in the forest or in the sea, In Thailand you are always close to nature, wildlife and interactions with animals. Perhaps a visit to an elephant rehabilitation center.
Thailand loves a festival, and it’s not surprising when you consider having fun and socializing is as central to Thai culture as eating spicy food. Read more at: http://www.bangkok.com/magazine/best-festivals-in-thailand.htm?cid=ch:OTH:001
