Growing up in a place heavily influenced by Western culture, the exotic appeal of Thailand was irresistible on my first solo trip abroad. With so many places catered to budget travelers, it’s easy to travel cheaply around fascinating destinations in the country while enjoying the bliss that is Thai food.
If you’re looking forward to some saltwater therapy, the southern half of Thailand is home to jaw-dropping sea views. While the areas north of the capital Bangkok offers spectacular mountain scenery and fascinating temple towns.
Bangkok is the primary international and domestic gateway to Thailand. Travelers either arrive at Suvarnabhumi International Airport located on the eastern outskirts of Bangkok and Don Mueang International Airport in the north. Direct international flights also available in provincial tourist hotspots including Phuket, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Samui, Krabi & Pattaya. Alternatively, land border crossings are popular from/to Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia & Vietnam (via Cambodia).
