The best islands are down south near the Malaysian border.
They all look like the above picture, and a place like that is simply heaven to me. Thailand is just an easy place to live and move around in. The beautiful people Let’s be real — Thais are pretty good looking.
Though I wonder how you can pick a favorite country. No country is really better than another, just different.
They’re always happy, always smiling, extremely polite, and always helpful.
They’ll help you out if you’re in trouble and help translate for you if you can’t speak Thai.
They may not be the wild and untamed jungles of some places in Borneo or the middle of Africa, but they still offer amazing views, dense forests, waterfalls to cool off in, and an interesting variety of wildlife. It wasn’t until I moved there that I fell in love with it. There’s lots to do, plenty of events, great bars, and amazing food (see above), and it’s easy to get around (except during rush hour).
The international environment Thailand is a country where you can get as local or foreign as you like. I love cities where there’s always something to do.
Because of all the tourists and expats who live here, the country is very cosmopolitan and international. No matter what time of the day or day of the week, you can always find something to do in Bangkok. Yesterday, I spent USD for all of my food for the day, including some drinks and snacks. I can get a private room for USD per night or a bungalow in front of the beach for –20 USD.
There are global food chains, international restaurants and stores, Starbucks, and Hollywood movies. Like New York, Bangkok is a city that never sleeps. An apartment in downtown Bangkok costs 0 a month, and it’s still bigger than what I need. My detailed, 170 page guidebook is made for budget travelers like you!
Thailand is a very international place thanks to the hordes of tourists and expats around the country.
Some of my favorite sushi restaurants are in Bangkok, and you can find amazing halal and Indian food in the downtown Sukhumvit area.
People often ask me why I return to places I’ve already visited instead of exploring somewhere new. Anything more than that, and I look like I’m about to keel over and die.
Well, that’s an easy answer: it’s because I feel attached to them. And Thailand is probably the one place outside of the US where I feel most at home. Well, here are 11 reasons why Thailand is one of the best countries in the world to visit (and tips on how you can visit too): The delicious food When people say they like Thai food but haven’t been to Thailand, I can’t help but think, “You’ve never really experienced Thai food.” Thai food in Thailand is leagues better than anywhere else in the world. (I have a low tolerance for spicy food.) All over the streets of Thailand, outdoor stalls serve up the cheapest and best Thai meals you can find.
I can sit on the sand and go for a swim for hours upon end. (See above and my love of warm weather.) While Thailand has been developed for years and many of the best beaches have been ruined through uncontrolled development, you can still find some pristine, picture-perfect islands and beaches around the country.
