There comes a time in almost everyone’s life when they are ready to experience something new and exciting. This is one of the main attractions of international travel, but why then, do so many adventurous people return to the same place instead of discovering somewhere new? This is often the case when it comes to Thailand, which lures people back time and time again, and sometimes captivates them to the extent that they never leave!
With its abundance of sight-seeing, close blooming forests, bold beaches, and wide range of flora and fauna, it fascinates holiday makers from every corner of the Earth. There is simply too much to do and see in Thailand to fit into one visit! You may visit Thailand with the intention of doing a homestay with the hilltop tribes near Chaing Mai, only to realise on your flight home that would have loved to have spent some time relaxing on the lush white beaches in the south of this vast country. Or you may pop in to experience a Full Moon Party, and then wish you had spent more time getting to know the local customs instead of nursing a hangover!
There are also many different cultures spread throughout Thailand. Animism, Hinduism, and Buddhism are all prevalent here, and the lifestyles are completely different within different regions. It is fascinating to travel through Thailand and see the culture gradually change as you approach a different region, and can ignite a burning desire to see each and every one of these lifestyles up close!
The local people also play a vital role in tempting people to return to Thailand. They are just so friendly and smiley that it is impossible to not enjoy their company, especially because they make it so clear that they enjoy yours!
And then there’s the food! Sure, you can order a pad thai in a classy restaurant back home, or even be really daring and try out the skills you picked up on one of the many cooking courses available throughout Thailand but it won’t be the same. There’s something almost magical about strolling up to a street vendor and then strolling around the streets of Thailand munching on his produce! There are also several Phuket hotels that offer exquisite dining experiences and delicious food.
Cost of living, apartments and timeshares
A lot of people will tell you that Thailand is very ‘cheap,’ and I would tend to disagree. It’s not cheap – it’s value for money. You can pick up a short term apartment with a pool if you’re a bachelor/ess, for more of a bargain than you could imagine. If you are travelling as a group or a couple, you should check out the plethora of timeshare resale companies and invest in your own taste of paradise. Companies such as SellmytimeshareNow.com offer an expansive selection of Thailand timeshare suites for sale and rent. The great thing about these sites is that you can try out a timeshare unit by renting it and if you like it, you’ll have the option of buying one for up to 30% off resort prices. Timeshares offer large living spaces along with resort concierge services so you are literally getting the best of both worlds: home style living with resort amenities and if you purchase one you’ll be able to visit Thailand more than once for a great value.
All in all, Thailand is beautiful in so many different ways, from the views of a beautiful turquoise sea to the dense green forests, that is is impossible to ever be truly satisfied that you have seen enough of it! And there are so many things to do and experiences to be had here that even someone who spent their whole life here could never fit them all in! And that, my friends, is why so many people feel the need to come back here time and time again!
