Are you planning a trip to Asia? Don’t forget to put Thailand on your travel list. There are many reasons why this country is a great travel destination. In a previous article I already talked about 4 of those reasons. In this article you will find 4 more reasons why you should visit this kingdom in Southeast Asia.
Thailand provides many options for nature lovers. Even in the cities you can find beautiful green gems. Many Thai cities have parks which are clean and quiet oases in the noisy and polluted concrete jungles. You can also visit many beautiful beaches, national parks, mountains, rice fields, caves and jungles.
Visit Chang Mai and cool down at the many surrounding mountains, which are the starting point of the Himalaya’s, or take a hike to the beautiful waterfalls in Kanchanaburi. Recommendable nature spots for city dwellers are for example Bung Ta lau Park in Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat) and Lumpini Park in Bangkok.
3. Transportation services
When traveling around you can choose a wide variety of transportation options. Those options include minivans, buses, boats and trains. Prices for these forms of transportation are cheap. Long distance travel within the country becomes much more convenient when you take a cheap flight. More and more budget airlines offer flights to many destinations in the country. All these options make it easy and affordable to travel.
In Bangkok you can use the very comfortable sky train and subway system’s. These transportation options make it easy to avoid the many traffic jams. If you do prefer to travel on the road, then you can choose one of the many taxi’s. They are also very affordable if you ask the driver to turn on the meter.
2. Medical care
The excellent medical care facilities and services are another reason why I love going to Thailand so much. This country offers one of the best medical services in the region. Chances are you are being transported to Thailand when you get a medical problem in one of the surrounding countries like Cambodia or Laos.
If you are into Buddhism and temples then Thailand is a must see country. You will find a huge amount of temples in this kingdom. There are many busy touristic ones but there are also many hidden temples, who rarely get any touristic visitors. You can find many of those temples in local neighborhoods or in the countryside.
