Living in Thailand for 11 months, I couldn’t help falling in love with this beautiful country. It has so many things to explore, and never failed to attract me. Here are the 5 reasons why I love Thailand.
From Bangkok, you can just hop on the bus and after about a few hours later, the closest beach to the city is in front of your eyes! I love how it’s easy to get there; it’s a perfect gateway for weekends. You can take a break from busy life in Bangkok, and spend quiet time just lying on the sand and reading a book. You don’t need to think about anything, time passes slowly on islands. If you decide to take longer vacation, you can also go to the southern islands of Thailand such as Koh Phi Phi and Phuket, which are the most beautiful beaches in Thailand. You can party on the beach if you want, there are plenty of options for it. I have to say, beach life here is awesome!
There are a lot of places that make you forget about the bustle of big city; so many national parks, local villages and so forth. From Kanchanabuti to Khao Sok national park, you can explore different types of nature that Thailand offers, and you will know a lot more about the country. You can hike, visit the waterfalls and caves; endless ways to explore the graceful nature. You have so many options if you stay long in Thailand.
People in Thailand are so kind, friendly, and easy to get along. Although they have limited English ability to communicate, they are willing to help people. They are always smiling, and sometimes joking. I get power to work on everyday just by talking with them. You may have a difficulty communicating with them, but if you know some words in Thai, you can have a nice little conversation!
I’ve been to some other Southeast Asian countries, but I think Thailand is the most convenient country in terms of transportation. There is BTS running inside the city, taxi is available 24/7 in Bangkok, a number of buses to go anywhere inside the country, sleeper trains to just beside the border of the neighbor countries, and many other options from AirAsia flights. You can go anywhere with these provided options.
This is the privilege of being in developing countries. Everything you do is cheap. Buying a bottle of beer for 35B ($1), staying at hostel for 150B per night ($4), going to visit Ankor Wat by bus for 700 ($20), and even staying at 5 star hotel for 2500B ($70)! You can have so much more experience than when you are in expensive countries, with such a small budget.
