Most travelers are on a tight budget. And if you are one of them, you will appreciate how cheap Thailand is, from essentials to shopping. What’s even more exciting is that Thailand is famous for its inexpensive yet fabulous hotel accommodations, which are excellent for most tourists.

Thai cuisine is popularly known for balancing five key flavours: bitter, sweet, sour, salty and spicy. You can typically find these flavours in the majority of dishes.
In addition, Thai culture emphasises the importance of mealtime with family and friends. During these get-togethers, they usually enjoy sharing flavourful curries, spicy salads, steamed rice, and of course fresh seafood.
Many countries in Asia offer mesmerising beaches and Thailand will always be on the list. From Nai Harn Beach, Phuketto Maya Bay, Koh Phi Phi up to Pattaya Beach, you will see top-rated beaches with various activities to enjoy.
You can go surfing, diving or enjoy swimming in the ocean. Make your visit unforgettable by renting a yacht and sailing with your loved ones. If you do decide to do this, make sure to go with a charter company that regularly performs yacht repairs & maintenance on their vessels. After all, it’s safety first!
One of the many dilemmas of tourists is if they will be able to communicate and speak with the locals. It is not a problem to worry about in Thailand! This Asian country is known for its fun-loving, generous and kind people.

Thailand offers a wide variety of fresh fruits. Tourists love that the price of the fruits in this country is incredibly affordable despite the vast selection. You can buy rambutan, custard apple, durian, sapodilla, jackfruit, and pomeloall – and still have plenty of money for other adventures!
