Why go on a trip or vacation in Thailand? Here are some good reasons to start preparing and organizing a trip to this beautiful Asian country. These are just some of the reasons that drive millions of tourists to visit the country every year.

Thai culture and street life

From the golden Buddhist temples to the buzz of the bustling markets, you'll feel like you're in a different world. Markets in Thailand are like no other in the world. Each has its own distinct character. Some markets are dedicated to street consumption, while others are filled with antiques and second-hand items. Visitors never know what they will find in these unique attractions.



A paradise for relaxation

An escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere in the islands or areas in northern Thailand, between rice fields and bamboo huts.

Parties and festivals

Many of these holidays stem from things like religion or the lunar calendar, but one aspect remains constant: they are incredibly interesting to see. You don't have to miss parties like Songkran, a festival where a fight with water takes place, or Loy Krathong, the festival of lights ...

For the best parties we recommend going to Phi Phi Island, for the Full Moon Party, o a Khao San Road a Bangkok. These places with their evocative parties are full of emotions. For a more relaxed atmosphere, we recommend the fun bar areas in Chiang Mai, Pai or le islands of Koh Tao and Koh Lanta.


Excellent beaches

Although the beaches best known for their beauty are those of Malaysia, the Philippines or Cambodia, Thailand also has wonderful beaches that can compete with the most beautiful in the world.


Although a good portion of the beaches have been overrun with tourists, there are an incredible number of stretches of sand that remain peaceful, secluded and beautiful. Some of these beaches include Freedom Beach in Phuket and Sunset Beach on the island of Koh Kradan.

The most delicious food in the world

Did you think you've already tasted Thai food by eating in your city's Thai restaurant? Think again, because nothing compares to the real one served and tasted in Thailand. Thai food is so delicious and varied that you should never eat the same dish twice but always try new tastes.


For diving

Thailand has over 1.500 miles of coastline, and is home to some of the best dive sites in the world. The monsoon season rarely hits areas such as Pattaya, known for its numerous sea turtles whose sightings are almost certainly guaranteed. Some of the best places to dive in Thailand include Koh Tao, the Surin Islands, Koh Chang, and Chumphon.


The temples 

The Land of Smiles has over 40.000 Buddhist temples. These structures date back to all the different dynasties, each reflecting the architectural and construction style of the era. Each province is destined to have at least one of these majestic structures, although the most unique and abundant are found in the capital.

Wildlife

Thailand is home to abundant wildlife in its many national parks, beaches, and mountainous terrain. The Khao Yai National Park, in central Thailand, is home to tigers, wild boars and even elephants can be seen.

In the south, in places like Monkey Beach on Koh Phi Phi, there are whole beaches full of monkeys where tourists flock to see them. Remember to be a responsible tourist and don't feed wildlife, and avoid tourist attractions that abuse animals for profit.
