A whole lot a love for Thailand

We all take things for granted from time to time. Like no other country, Thailand certainly has its faults, there’s no denying that. However the pro’s far outweigh the cons. So this week’s article focuses on a few reasons why I love Thailand, aka The Land of Smiles.

1.Food
Peckish? No problem. Whatever the time of the day, food is always available. Street vendors, late night restaurants and endless food stalls. That’s what I love about Thailand, the convenience! When people say they love Thai food, but haven’t actually been here, I can’t help but think, “You have no idea of real Thai food.”

2.TIT
TIT (This is Thailand), is a common phrase used amongst expats. This expression is used when one experiences random sights, however it can also be used in a disapproving way.

Find yourself in a traffic jam and wonder what the hell is causing this hold up? Oh, it’s only the local elephant or a herd of anorexic cows crossing the road, standard TIT!

A scooter that contains not one or two persons, but a family of four, whilst carrying a mattress or a flat screen TV (or even both), TIT!

3.Accessibility
When a long weekend approaches (normally down to a Buddha day), you could say I go a little crazy!
As a group of friends and I always jet off to a local islands to party. This is what I love about Thailand, accessibility!!! Originating from England we don’t really have fantastic weather and beautiful beaches to offer (well not Thai standard anyways).
Living in Thailand you are never far away from a paradise! Getting to and from these places is relatively convenient (the majority of the time) and still cheap. TIP: Know the schedules! Pre – book transport and accommodation in advance, especially on long weekends.

4.Culture
Thailand is filled with scenic diversity. The greater part of this country’s cultural heritage can be viewed in the decorations and architecture of countless amounts of Wat’s. Apparently, there are an estimated 30,000 Wat’s throughout the Land of Smiles!

5.Festivals
Celebrations carried out here, really are on another scale! In my opinion, Songkran is one of the best festivals that I have ever attended! I mean, where else in the world could you get away with throwing water in random people’s faces. It just wouldn’t happen! On the flip side of celebrations, I also adore Loi Krathong. This literally translates to ‘floating decoration’.
This festival originated in Sukhothai. Some friends and I recently explored the ruins of Sukhothai’s Historical Park, highly recommend a visit. I would love to revisit this place during Loi Krathong festival, the sights would be astonishing.

Once you have visited Thailand, that’s it you have the bug (so to speak). This country really is that enticing, guaranteed to leave you wanting more!

Till next time, work hard and play harder, T
