6 reasons to travel to Thailand

Thailand is without a doubt the most popular destination for those looking to experience Asia for the first time. The country is easy to tour around and provides a very nice introduction to this so fascinating continent.

Meet the ethnic groups of the northern mountains

The mountains in the north of the country are inhabited by various ethnic groups that you will get the chance to meet when undertaking a trek. They include the Lisu, the Hmong, the Karen, the Akha and the Lahu peoples.

Sunbathe on heavenly beaches

The defining image of Thailand is that of its heavenly beaches. And what they say about them is true: they are simply wonderful. Fine white velvety-soft sand, coconut palms, turquoise waters – the very epitome of delight. Make the dream a reality. There are beaches to suit all tastes. From party beaches such as those in Phuket to the famous Koh Lanta, and not forgetting the virtually deserted Koh Tarutao – it's simply up to you to choose whichever suits you best.

Meet some of the most adorable people you can imagine

Thailand might easily be referred to as the land of smiles. Its people are incredibly gentle and welcoming. You will be well received wherever you go. The way in which the Thai people are ready to do anything when it comes to assisting you or providing you with directions simply has to be seen.

Experiencing Southeast Asia for the first time

Any traveller will tell you the same thing: Thailand is the ideal destination for first-time visitors to Asia. Everything is easy here. They know how to treat tourists better in Thailand than anywhere else. Everything is in place to ensure visitors receive a warm welcome. Don't go looking on the map for anywhere else. A trip to Thailand is ideal for your first adventure.

Sample the famous cuisine

Thai cuisine enjoys a wonderful reputation. The fine combination of the sweet and the savory, the numerous specialties, the charm of the street stalls – there's always something to delight your taste buds, and without compromising your health.

Explore an Asian megalopolis

Bangkok is a huge city with dense crowds and pollution that at times peaks at high levels. Described like that, it's not exactly the stuff of dreams. However, Bangkok has a crazy charm that makes it impossible to resist. It has an incalculable amount of heritage to offer, and a single lifetime would not be enough to explore and experience it all. Bangkok is a city of stark contrasts, blending its darkest and most depraved sides with the beauty of its religious monuments and the gentleness of its way of life.
