Ever since my first trip overseas when I was fifteen, I have never stopped thinking about travelling the world.

I think of all the exciting places left to see and the new cultures I would experience.

I’ve checked a few items off the bucket list since that first big trip, but there’s one that has been a dream of mine since the beginning. A place that is enchanting, otherworldly, and completely foreign to me.

That destination is Thailand.  There are so many wonders in this traveller’s paradise, so keep reading to get enticed by a few reasons why Thailand is my dream destination.

Delicious Thai food

As a self proclaimed foodie one of the best parts of a journey to Thailand would be the amazing food.  Sure, there are Thai restaurants where I live, but to scour the streets and find the perfect pad si ew at a local vendor (at an astonishingly low price, no less) would end up being the highlight of a single day.

Budget travel at its finest

I’ve read you can live in Thailand for less than USD 10 per day.  Cheap local accommodations, amazing street vendors, and low-priced bars and tours would turn what is normally a pricey trip anywhere else into a worthy cultural experience.  With low prices like this, Thailand is a destination where I could truly “live like a local”, and maybe never return home!

Magical temples and historic sites

Thailand is the place National Geographic finds images for out-of-this-world golden temples so mind blowing they should be fake. Places like Wat Pra That Doi Suthep Temple, and the historic city of Ayutthaya look straight out of a movie.  With ruins dating back centuries, it would be an adventure and honour like no other to walk amongst these places.

World-class beaches

Picture perfect beaches surround every corner of Thailand.  Not only is it just wondrous to sit and stare out into blissful blue all day, they offer great activities I’ve always wanted to try like surfing and scuba diving.  Plus, staying up until sunrise at a Full Moon Party at Koh Phangan can’t be found anywhere else.

Embarking on a trip to Thailand is the adventure of a lifetime, a place where both  young backpackers visit for their gap year and seasoned travelers return time and again. Where the locals are friendly, the beaches are breathtaking and the food is better. I hope one day soon my dream destination will turn to reality.
