In 2016, more than 32 million tourists visited Thailand from all over the world. The country’s popularity as a tourist destination is also growing as more people discover the unique and diverse travel experience that Thailand can offer. Beyond the popular spots and beautiful landscapes, there are many reasons to visit Thailand that are not as widely advertised. Staying at one of the luxury resorts in Thailand is an opportunity to relax while on vacation. You’ll have a beautiful home base to return to each night, after spending all day exploring.
You’ll also find that the staff at the luxury resorts in Thailand can be helpful resources in creating the best experience possible for you and your travel companions.
If you’ve ever been curious about visiting Thailand, there’s no better time to do it. Read on to learn the top eight reasons why you should visit, and how staying in a luxury resort can make it the trip of your dreams.
1. Enjoy Thailand’s Excellent Cuisine
Staying at one of the luxury resorts in Thailand gives you the opportunity to enjoy incredible food in a fine dining atmosphere. Different restaurant options will give you a chance to explore traditional Thai cuisine, as well as international favorites. And at the resort bars, you can sip on a favorite wine or dinner drink, or get adventurous with a specialty cocktail.
You also have the option of full room service, if you’ve had a long day exploring and want to spend the night relaxing and dining in your room.
Exploring the city will also be an eye-opening culinary experience. Thai street food is known for its flavorful soups and spicy rice dishes. Around every corner there is an opportunity to taste something new.
2. Relax at a World Class Spa
If your daily life is full of hustle and bustle, then visiting Thailand can be an opportunity to leave your stress behind and relax completely.
A stay at our luxury resort includes access to a world-class spa providing treatments based on ancient Thai traditions. This includes facials and massages, body treatments and rituals, and beauty services such as manicures and pedicures.
Indulging in healthy practices and restorative spa services will make your trip to Thailand truly feel like a vacation.
3. Soak Up the Sun
There are certain things that set Thai beaches apart, like clear waters and white sands. Visiting one of Thailand’s many beautiful beaches is a must when you’re in the country. And with so many options, you can find whatever kind of beach you’re looking for.
Do you want a quieter, more romantic spot that’s off the beaten path? Maybe you want a place that offers more adventure and activities for your family. Or maybe you just want to sit on the sand and enjoy the sunset over the water.
Whatever you’re looking for, the knowledgeable staff at the luxury resorts in Thailand can help point you in the right direction.
4. Shop ‘Til You Drop
Thailand’s mix of shopping malls, boutiques, and street markets offers a shopping experience unlike any you’ve had before.
You will find almost anything that you want from traditional antiques to Thai costumes to collectibles and souvenirs. At luxury resorts, you will have the opportunity to shop in smaller boutiques offering high-end goods.
In the busy cities, night markets and bazaars are where you can go to find deals on furniture, clothes, toys and other common items. It’s worth noting that street markets and bazaars are likely to be crowded, but shopping there may also give you the chance to stumble upon a street performer or live music.
5. Visit a Temple or Two
You shouldn’t come to Thailand without planning to visit a Buddhist temple. Finding one shouldn’t be hard, as the country is home to thousands.
While there may be certain architectural similarities between some temples — or wats, as they’re called — each also has its own distinct style, personality, and history.
Not all wats are open to tourists. You shouldn’t hesitate to ask your resort staff for recommendations if you have questions. Visiting a Buddhist temple is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture of Thailand. You will also witness some of its most stunning landmarks.
6. Take in a Thai Festival
If you really want to experience the best of what Thailand has to offer, you may want to consider timing your trip to a Thai festival.
Throughout the year, festivals that celebrate the country’s heritage and rituals bring people to the streets, creating a colorful spectacle. Joining in the festivities is a chance to socialize and have fun. See a different side of the city than you otherwise would.
Some of the most popular festivals are the Songkran Festival, which celebrates the Thai New Year, and the Loi Krathong Festival when thousands of lanterns are sent up to the night sky.
7. Get Up Close and Personal with Animals
From elephants to tigers to monkeys, Thailand presents visitors with unique opportunities to interact with native species.
For closer encounters or if there are specific animals you want to see, you could also plan to book a visit to an elephant nature park, a night safari, or spend time with a turtle conservation group.
Or you could just keep your eyes open as you’re wondering the streets or relaxing at your resort. You’re guaranteed to see some exotic animals.
8. Balance of City Life and Beautiful Landscape
You can experience a great deal of Thai culture in its cities. However they do not always offer the ideal atmosphere to stay, especially when traveling with a family.
Luxury resorts that are located just outside of the city therefore give you the best of both worlds. You can wake up surrounded by natural beauty, and friendly staff will be available to help you plan your day.
When you’re done enjoying all of the cultural landmarks and activities that the city has to offer, you can return to a relaxing, family-friendly atmosphere and begin to wind down for a restful night.
