There are some places in the world visiting them once is not enough for so many reasons. Thailand is a place that you can’t just go once and tick it off your list. Unless you are a slow traveller, on a sabbatical, who backpacks through the nook and corners of the country for 8 months, one trip to Thailand will never be enough.
At the end of your first trip, you will have a long list of places you couldn’t visit and things you couldn’t do. And you would definitely want to plan one more vacation. And then one more. Some times for 4 days, some time for a week. Some times solo, and some times with friends. But you would go back. Because Thailand does that to you.
We give you some of the very many reasons to visit Thailand, once every year.
1. YOU CAN NEVER EVER HAVE ENOUGH OF BANGKOK
Referred to as the ‘second most visited city in the world’ and ‘World’s Best City’ by various global travel publications and surveys, there is no end to how much time you can spend in Bangkok.
The city life, temples, street food, tuk tuks, nightlife and a tourist influx from all over the world make Bangkok a melting pot of all sorts. There is never a dull moment in this city. No matter how many times you have been there, you will find new things and places to check out the next time you land there. For the first timer, Bangkok can be a lot of chaos and madness but it takes over you soon enough. And this is what draws you back. Intriguing, isn’t it?
2. AIR TICKETS AT THROWAWAY PRICES AND WELL, VISA ON ARRIVAL
In peak holiday season in India or during an extended weekend, don’t be surprised to find the air tickets to anywhere in India to cost you more than a round trip ticket to Thailand. And if you are a little aware of upcoming long weekends and keep a check on the airfares, you can book the tickets even cheaper.
And hello! It is a visa on arrival! So, practically your Thailand trip can start anytime you land a cheap air tickets deal. Simple as that.
3. OFF-SEASON OR IN-SEASON? WHAT’S THAT?
It is not a winter-y country nor it is best avoided in rains.
It is a tropical place for all seasons and so, you can escape your summer heat to the islands of Pattaya or bone-chilling winter to the warm climes of Ko Chang. Every year, on repeat mode.
4. LOW ON BUDGET OR AN EXOTIC GETAWAY
The beauty of Thailand is you can spend as low as you want and as high as you can afford. Thailand is a budget traveller’s havenand also promises a luxuriously exotic vacation.
Cheap and delicious street food in streets to fancy hotel chains and malls in Bangkok, island escape to Krabi on a luxury resort, Thailand fits every budget beautifully.
5. SOLO TRAVELLER OR WITH A PLUS ONE
Whatever life stage you are at, whatever occasion it is that you are raising a toast to, Thailand’s got you covered.
A long weekend, a backpack and low on cash? Chiang Mai. Planning to take your girlfriends for a bachelorette party? Bangkok. Summer vacation plans with kids for some beach fun and adventure sports? Phuket.

6. FOR ALL YOUR WHIMS AND FANCIES
Believe us, not every country can boast to have it all. Some are good in summers, some make sense for a winter break, some are not so good for vegetarians, some are not too kind on budget travellers or backpackers and some fancy your one particular interest area.
Well, Thailand has got every thing that can interest any kind of traveller. Thai cooking classes, temple tours, spirituality, adventure sports, animal volunteering, English teaching, bargain shopping, cheap street food to fine dining, chilling on a quiet beach, dancing the night away in a nightclub. You name it. You got it. That’s Thailand for you.
7. ONE ISLAND AT A TIME, WE SAY!
Krabi, Phuket, Pattaya, Ko Samui, Ko Lipe, Ko Tao, Ko Phi Phi and so many more. There cannot be just one visit to cover so much beauty at one go. Really.
You need to give every island the time it needs to explore and enjoy it to the best and you won’t regret it even one bit. All the more reason to go back for another island hopping trip.
