1. Thailand is budget-friendly

Your budget and travel costs can make or break your trip, as they’re a big part of how much and what you’ll be able to experience. The great thing about visiting Thailand is that your money goes a long way here. From accommodation and food to clothing and gifts, Thailand charges less than half the price you’d pay at home.

2. Thai food is amazing

You might have eaten Thai food before but you won’t have experienced real Thai cuisine until you’ve been to Thailand. The food is out of this world: it’s flavorsome, delicious, and surprisingly varied and healthy. There is A LOT to try beyond the well-known pad thai. To find the best dishes in the area where you’re staying, ask the locals what they would recommend. They’ll be more than happy to advise you!

3. The beaches are incredible

If you’re a sun, sea, and sand lover, this is the ideal place for your summer vacation, as Thailand is home to some of the world’s most beautiful exotic beaches. One beach you have to visit is Koh Phi Phi, the place where The Beach was filmed. With white sand, crystal clear seas, and the most beautiful scenery, this isn’t a place to be missed!

Phuket, Thailand’s island paradise, is another beach town you could hit for a comfy holiday, and more island jewels can be found in the Gulf of Thailand. When planning which cities and areas to visit, take a look at the routes you can take to make the journey filled with stunning views.

4. You can attend a full moon party

We’ve all heard the stories about Thailand’s out-of-this-world beach parties, but if you’re a nightlife-lover, what about attending the queen of all: the Full Moon Party? If you plan your trip to coincide with the full moon, you can join over 10,000 people for a dusk-to-dawn party on Koh Phangan island – just make sure to book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.

For those who’d rather skip the party or who’d like to hang around Koh Phangan either side of the event, the island has many more facets and assets to enjoy, from empty beaches to snorkeling/diving, kitesurfing, and blissful seafood.

Immerse yourself in Thai culture in Chiang Mai

While you’re in Thailand, you can visit the beautiful mountainous city of Chiang Mai. This is Thailand’s most cultural city, packed full of remnants of the past. Think ancient Buddhist temples, moats, and drawbridges, plus plenty of other exciting things to do. From national parks to high-street stores and night markets where you’ll find the best local food and artifacts, there’s a little bit for everyone here.

6. See and experience Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand’s capital city, is a vibrant, pulsating place. It’s the London of Thailand, only more cultural and diverse. It has some amazing heritage and nightlife, not to mention awesome eateries. There are rooftop bars, temples to explore, and The Grand Palace to visit; here you will never run out of things to see and do!

For all the reasons listed above, and plenty more, Thailand is the place to be. Take a trip there this summer and have the time of your life!
