Out of all the amazing countries in the world that there are to visit, one of the trendiest and most popular to visit is Thailand. It’s especially popular among backpackers who enjoy traveling the world for months on end, and there’s a good reason why. Here are a few reasons why Thailand is one of the most popular destinations in the entire world.


The first thing we’d like to shed light on is Thailand’s incredible affordability. Heck, you can get a massage on almost every street corner for around seven or eight dollars, and that’s not an exaggeration! But it’s not just the massages—the hotels and amenities are incredibly cheap as well.

Natural Beauty

Thailand is one of the most gorgeous natural countries in the entire world. From the amazing islands of Koh Tao and Koh Samui to the mystical Northern region of Chiang Mai, you’ll be getting a visual treat the entire time.

Party Haven

And finally, another reason Thailand is so popular is because of the parties. Sure, you can find parties in every city in the world—but Thailand seems to have hit its stride when it comes to throwing all-out ragers, whether it’s Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan or raves up in the mountains of Pai.
