If you’ve been planning a getaway for quite some time now and are finally ready to start putting the wheels in motion, chances are you are starting to consider all the different places that you could go to relax, take in some sights, and get away from it all.
One holiday hot spot that more and more people are starting to flock to is Thailand and for good reason – with so much to do, you can rest assured you will never be bored.
Let’s look at some of the primary reasons why you might consider taking you next holiday here.
One of the primary reasons many people go on to select this as their choice of destinations is due to the very low cost of travel. While some vacations will drain your bank account and take years of saving up for, this is not one of them.
Most people can easily live for £500 in Thailand, making it one of the cheapest places to live on earth. Costs of accommodation are incredibly low, starting at just £3/night in a hostel and going up slightly higher if you want more exclusive accommodations. Meals come cheap as well at as little as £1.50 per meal.
Although flights to this destination can be steep, if booked in advance you can get very reasonable prices or deals to your chosen location. The exchange rate is extremely attractive, with the average rates being £1.00 to nearly 50 Baht.
The next reason why more and more people are choosing to go to Thailand over other locations is because it offers a great sense of adventure. No matter what your interests happen to be, you can likely find something to entertain yourself when you visit Thailand.
For example, you can get away for a jungle treck, which will have you experiencing wilderness like never before, or you can catch an elephant ride for something totally different, this is extremely popular in the city of Chiang Mai. These are just a few of the activities on offer, with many more to choose from you will be spoilt for choice. In addition to that, they also offer jet skiing as well as mountain climbing, so you can work on your fitness level while you are at it.
After a day of high adventure, there’s no better way to relax than on one of the beaches in Thailand. These beaches are covered in golden sand and offer greenery that won’t be forgotten. With the warm breeze coming in, it’s the perfect way to take all the stress away from your life while on your holiday. These beaches have become renowned, including Koh Phi Phi which featured as the idyllic island in the film ‘The Beach’ with Leonardo DiCaprio.
Finally, if you want to take in some shopping and bring back a number of great souvenirs, there are plenty of options here as well.
Bangkok is one of the hottest shopping areas you’ll find in this country with at least five major shopping malls present. With a number of indoor markets you can visit as well, there will be no shortage of sights to see.
So as you go about planning your holiday, do not overlook Thailand. See for yourself what the fuss is about.
