Thailand was the first destination I decided to travel to solo. I island-hopped, explored Bangkok, and, as a young backpacker, ticked off a big bucket list item—partying until sunrise at the Full Moon Party. While that was back in 2011, it remains one of the most vibrant and beautiful places I’ve ever visited. Often referred to as the “land of smiles,” there is so much to offer travelers in this beautiful and bustling country.
Thailand is always welcoming, despite receiving hordes of tourists all year-round. Thailand’s majestic temples pull you in, and you can’t help but be drawn to the history of it all. Thailand’s pristine and turquoise waters are magical, warm, and incredibly photogenic which add the perfect touch to a dream holiday.
