- The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes. Marcel Proust
Thailand is Affordable
The dollar goes a long way in Thailand. There are hundreds of hotels and guesthouses for under $20 a night. Thai food is likewise inexpensive and often the street food vendors, who typically sell dishes for the equivalent of $1 or less, offer the most delicious stuff. Want to splurge? Even better, as Thailand has some amazing hotels and resorts, all for significantly less than you would pay back home.
Year Round Sunshine
Whether you visit in December or May, expect warm weather and mostly clear days. There are seasons in Thailand, they’re just a little different from the ones we’re used to – cool, hot and rainy.
Thailand has some of the best beaches in the world. Warm, clear water, stunning vistas and marine life to gawk at as you swim, snorkel or scuba. Plus, there are so many different types of beaches in Thailand, from quiet and laid back to party all night, that everyone can find the perfect place.
Few will argue that Thai food is delicious! But if you’ve only been exposed to it at Thai restaurants back home, you’re in for a surprise. Here in Thailand the food is better, there is more variety, and it’s very inexpensive. You’ll easily find favorites such as pad thai and curry, but you’ll also find an amazing selection of salads, noodles and snacks. p.s., Thailand has the most delicious fried chicken in the world.
Whether you are on the beach or in one of Thailand’s cities, you won’t be far from the bars and nightclubs that have made the country famous. Don’t worry, it’s not all go-go bars and scantily clad women! There are plenty of discos, nightclubs and regular bars, too.
