With over 35 million visitors a year the Kingdom of Thailand is one of the top ten most visited countries in the world and the only Southeast Asian country that was never colonised by an European country. It’s also the country outside of NZ and Australia that I have visited the most times… I just can’t get enough! With coasts on the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand, it’s stunning natural beauty, bustling cities and rich, fascinating culture makes it a must-visit destination for travellers around the world.

Thai food is delicious, the nightlife is bustling with festivals galore and the climate is tropical. You can get lost exploring lush jungles and majestic mountains, party to the early hours, marvel at one of the 35,000 beautiful temples or island hop from one sunny, sandy beach to the next.

I love Thailand! It’s always been another home and a go-to destination for me with family living there for years. There’s so much to do and see, it’s cheap, easy to travel and heaps of fun!
