Thailand is the travel hub of Southeast Asia. Most visitors coming into the region fly into Bangkok and make that their base for doing the circuit as they backpack around Southeast Asia. It’s the most visited country in the region – and with good reason! Thailand speaks for itself.
When you hear its name, you already think about beaches, beauty, jungles, and food. And your thoughts are spot on.With its lush jungles, famed beaches, world-class diving, amazing food, friendly and cheap prices, Thailand is by far my favourite country in the world! I’ve been coming to the country since 2005, lived there for 2 years, and always seem pulled back to it. It’s an easy country to travel and you can meet a lot of other people there.
Thailand has a lot to offer travellers – no matter your budget. You can backpack Thailand here on a limited budget or you can live the luxurious travel life in fancy resorts on the beach. Or just travel on a modest budget and get a lot of bang for your buck. The country has something for everyone.
Backpacking Thailand is often the way most people travel around but that doesn’t mean really roughing it. You can travel Thailand well without spending a lot of money. I consider myself a backpacker but that doesn’t mean I’m in dorm rooms all the time. You can get private rooms and nice meals for cheap. The country is a well-worn destination on the backpacking trail and everything is convenient and easy. However, there are still many off the beaten path destinations away from the crowds and the prices they bring.
