Somewhere with beaches and forests. Somewhere not a metropolitan city. Somewhere peaceful and scenic. Somewhere away from the usual routine of life. Where on Earth can one find such a place? And can it be within a budget, i.e not too expensive?
Thailand is a really awesome place to spend one’s vacation alone, with friends or with family. The people are friendly and respectful. The locations are scenic. Thai food is amazing if your tongue can tolerate the strong flavours of Thai food. The land is also peaceful. There is so much scope to have fun and spend a relaxing vacation in Thailand.
