Why I Love Thailand
I visit Thailand multiple times a year and always look forward to sharing my travel adventures with my readers here on the blog. Here you’ll find my best Thailand travel tips with my recommendations and experiences.
My love story with this country started about 8 years ago when I booked a two-week holiday in Koh Samui and became completely obsessed with this island.
I was amazed by the palms, beaches and crystal clear sea and also with the kind, friendly and easy going Thai people who went out of their way to make me feel happy and comfortable all the time.
Since then I had a chance to visit other parts of Thailand and felt exactly the same way about every new place I discovered.
Bangkok quickly became my favorite city in the world and you can read a lot about my experience in this city here on the blog.
Since my first day in Bangkok, I found it really easy to get around by using the BTS Skytrain, tuk-tuks or taxis.
The capital of Thailand is a huge metropolis but it is very organized and also very well connected to all the most important landmarks and points of interest.
