There is so much to see and do in Thailand that visitors cannot resist returning time and again. The expansive coastline and stunning tropical islands promise wonderful beaches and laidback ambience. Inland and beyond, there are rice paddies, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, lush jungles teeming with wildlife. Predominantly a Buddhist country, Thailand also offers an abundance of golden temples flaunting spiritually-inspired architecture. In stark contrast is the buzzing, vibrant capital Bangkok, which with its neon lights and smog-filled streets, skyscrapers and floating markets can leave you a bit overwhelmed.
One reason why Thailand proves to be an attractive holiday destination is that despite western influence it has managed to retain its distinct Oriental identity. In a way, the country combines the best of the East and West and so whether you are a sun loving beach bum or an adrenaline junky looking for adventure in the river rapids, you will find yourself in for an exotic and exciting experience. There is more good news in store in that Thailand enjoys year round temperate climate which means you can visit any time you choose.
