4 months


Thailand is a country in south-east Asia. Thailand is famous for its gorgeous beaches and stunning dive sites. The country provides some of the world’s best diving with the famous Similan Islands and many other spectacular spots on the Andaman Sea, such as Koh Phi and Koh Lanta Islands. A trip to Thailand, under a warm tropical climate, offers its tourists fine beaches, beautiful island life, spectacular reefs, nice food, and fascinating culture. For all types, Thailand provides a wide variety of accommodation. There are budget hostels, simple guesthouses, and beach bungalows in the style of a backpacker. In the world, the climate is tropical. That means hot and humid weather throughout the year. Much of the country is also covered with tropical rain forest. Average Temperatures range from 25 ° C to 32 ° C. Thailand is a safe place to be traveling in. Only be wary of pickpockets, fraud, and robbery in night buses in big cities. Also, be extra cautious when driving a motorbike or a car as there may be irregular traffic, and there may not be road rules. The good thing is that you can apply for an e-Visa from Thailand online too, which is much better than going to an embassy.
