4 reasons to get off your arse and book a trip to Thailand
I don’t know if it’s because I start work again tomorrow or what but I’ve woken up with a serious case of wanderlust. I’m not itching to go away for a year again (Never again Mum I promise) but I’ve been thinking a lot about my time in Thailand. It was one of the best places I’ve ever been too and here are four reasons why YOU should book a holiday to magical, wonderful, beautiful Thailand.
It’s pretty hard to get bored in Thailand.
Wether it’s bathing an elephant, eating scorpions, jungle trekking, temple exploring, snorkelling with the cast of Finding Nemo or spending a few weeks doing some mad partying, Thailand has it all and more. We spent two awesome weeks in the North of Thailand before spending the other two weeks chilling out on the beaches of Southern Thailand.
You can live the champagne lifestyle on a lemonade budget. Seriously.
We spent 5 days on Koh Tao in a fan bungalow that had it’s own bathroom and was 5 minutes from the beach for a grand total of £15 a night. That’s not bad is it? Wether you live like a local or stick to what you know, you really don’t have to break the bank to enjoy Thailand.
Thai people are some of the most wonderful people on the planet.
Sure there’s a few people that are out to scam you but the majority of Thai’s we came across were wonderful human beings. If you are lost, people will try and help you. If they don’t speak English, they will find someone who does and get them to help you. Thailand isn’t anymore dangerous than anywhere else in the world, just keep your wits about you and you’ll be okay.
It’s easy to find your own slice of paradise.
In both the North and South of Thailand, I never really got that feeling that Thailand was overcrowded – Apart from Maya Bay where they filmed The Beach. Klong Khong beach (Koh Lanta) was beautiful and there was hardly anyone else there. If you do some research it’s pretty easy to find some peace and quiet away from all the crowds.
