Fancy a holiday? Not sure where to go? Look no further – the answer is Thailand.
It is widely reported that Thailand is the country to go to whatever your tastes, and for me Thailand definitely didn’t disappoint. In fact, I’ve been 3 times and spent over 6 months there exploring the well-known hotspots and some of the places off the beaten track. It is such a varied country, full of so many different destinations, the problem often lies in choosing one in particular to visit: from the bustling, frenzied capital of Bangkok, where you can see amazing sights such as the Grand Palace, the Floating Market and sparkling Old City, to the sleepy beaches of the islands, where your troubles can be washed away with every warm wave.
Many people go to Thailand to paint the town red at the famous beach parties, the most notorious of which is most likely the Full Moon Party, held every month on the island of Koh Phangan. Phuket is another location that is notorious for its party lifestyle, the go go bars, the cabaret shows and the clubs; it definitely has something for everyone!
Furthermore, Thailand’s islands are not only great for those who need a break after a week of debauchery, but they are also superb for families, couples and friends whose holiday heaven consists of lazy days by the sea and chilled-out dinners by the beach. Koh Samui is one of the most laid back islands and with so much choice when it comes to resorts and beaches, the perfect one is just waiting for you to hop on.
Last but not least, the beaches you will come across in Thailand are great for the adventurous, with water sports on tap, such as windsurfing, sailing, kayaking and diving. If you are an adrenaline junkie and looking for something to really get your heart pumping, then see if you can handle skydiving near Pattaya, white water rafting in Phuket, waterfall abseiling in Chiang Mai and even elephant riding through the jungle in Kanchanaburi.
Despite the fact that the flights to Thailand cost an arm and a leg, Thailand is really worth it! If you are looking for a varied holiday, then I suggest that you book your flights immediately. With so much to do and so many amazing sights to see, once you have been you will want to keep going back again and again and again!
