Best of Thailand: Beaches, Bangkok, and Bites
Thailand is one of the first countries I think of when people talk about visiting Asia. It’s probably because of my preference for their food and the stories I hear of how cheap everything is there. Thailand (formerly Siam) has the allure of the big city of Bangkok, the history and culture of Chiang Mai, and the beautiful beaches on its East and West coasts. I first visited Thailand in June 2011 for 2 weeks. I booked a tour which included Bangkok and the East Coast islands of Ko Tao, Ko Samui, and Ko Pangnan. I also visited Chiang Mai on my own and explored the surrounding area. This time around we visited Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and Phuket.
Thailand is the only Southeast Asian nation to never have been colonized. Throughout much of its modern history, Thailand has been ruled by mostly military dictatorships. A general election in December 2007 restored a civilian government, but in May 2014 another military coup returned the absolute power to the army. Tourism makes up about 6% of the economy. Thailand was the most visited country in Southeast Asia in 2013, according to the World Tourism Organization.

Thailand Travel Tips
Thailand is the travel hub of Southeast Asia. Most people coming into the region fly into Bangkok and make that their base for doing the circuit around Southeast Asia. With its lush jungles, famed beaches, world-class diving, amazing food, friendly and cheap prices, Thailand is by far my favourite country in the world! I’ve been coming to the country since 2005, lived there for 2 years, and always seem pulled back to it. It’s an easy country to travel and you can meet a lot of other people there. You’re never alone!
The country is a well-worn destination on the backpacking trail and everything is convenient and easy. However, there are still many off the beaten path destinations always from the crowds and the prices they bring. Overall, Thailand speaks for itself. When you hear its name, you already think about beaches, beauty, jungles, and food. And your thoughts are spot on.
