Thailand – Why This Country Should Be On Your Bucket List
Thailand is a country that we have fallen in love with. In this post we explain some of the reasons why we keep going back!
Unspoilt beaches can be found all over Thailand. With bans on rows and rows of sunbeds your really can get the Robinson Crusoe experience. So many to choose from do check out our Beaches Playlist on our You Tube Channel which will show you a selection of our favourites.
Where do we start, so many fabulous food options and cheap too! We were very nervous about trying the street food when we first visited Thailand, however now we love it. Make sure you pick a hawker stall that is busy and used by the locals and you won’t look back. There are restaurants to satisfy all budgets however we have had the best meals sat on plastic stools so don’t be afraid to venture to those restaurants that look very basic and take away’s are a good option too!
Interesting Culture and Traditions
The official religion of Thailand is Buddhism and there are plenty of opportunities to learn more about this fascinating religion, there are numerous temples to visit and buddhism/meditation courses can be easily found. It is really important to respect these and other traditions when travelling to Thailand. More information can be found here.

Thailand really does have it all, you can listen to live music, partake in some Karaoke, watch a fire show, and party until dawn if that is what you want to do. It really is a fun place!
We particularly love the night markets, shop until you drop but don’t forget to barter!
Being pampered in the UK is an expensive hobby, however in Thailand it is far more affordable, in fact it is very cheap about £6 for an hour massage. Having a foot or back and shoulder massage is one of our daily treats.
Our favourite time of the day, perfect for grabbing a chair looking out to sea and sampling the local brew Sangsom if you are brave enough!
Wonderful people – it certainly is the land of the smiles
We have met some amazing people on our travels to Thailand, they are so happy and you will always be greeted with a smile. They don’t always have a lot but their generosity is very humbling.
