Thailand is one of our favourite Asian countries, probably because we love the food! Thailand is a country rich in history, has incredible temples and Buddhas, beaches, stunning islands and a vibe that is so typically Asian.
It’s also the favourite of many people and is one of the most visited Asian destinations. With the frenetic city of Bangkok and a shopping mecca at your fingertips, it’s a great place for a stopover en route to Europe or just for a quick trip.
