Thailand is the true Backpacker paradise. There is rarely any other country with such high popularity for budget travelling. Can you even call yourself a Backpacker if you haven’t been to Thailand yet? Thailand is the definition of an ideal destination for those on a tight budget and those who want to experience as much as possible with small expenses. From budget dorm rooms close to the beach to the delicious street food and the welcoming Thai culture – there is truly nothing that a Backpacker could possibly miss in Thailand. The best way to explore the country is to tour all around the islands and the main land and get to know as many places as possible.
An easy travel experience
To travel Thailand is the ideal start for any budget traveller. Due to the good infrastructure and the attractive backpacker scene it is fairly easy to tour the country. Even for solo travellers, Thailand is the place to go to. With the night buses and the numerous hostels, a trip can be planned with little expertise and it will sure turn out to be incredible. But which spots are really worth the visit?
The TOP 6 best spots to visit
Clearly, Thailand is mainly characterized through the islands with the beautiful beaches and the clear water. But is this all? Some Backpackers are surprised to find out during their first visit, that Thailand has to offer much more.
The city of Bangkok
Any backpacking adventure in Thailand starts in Bangkok. The capital is the center of Thailand and the ideal place to get to know the culture and the people. With colorful temples and countless food markets, Bangkok is a place to stay and get lost. The tuk-tuks and the chaos are the first impressions many travellers get. Visit the temples, stroll through the streets and enjoy a drink at one of the rooftop bars.
The White Temple in Chiang Mai
The next city on the usual route through Thailand is Chiang Mai. While it is fun to stroll around and get better insights of the Thai way of life, the clear highlight is the White Temple. Even for experienced Backpackers, this place is special and exceeds any expectations. It takes you into a totally different world and should therefore not be missed on any trip to Thailand.
Many Backpackers fall in love with Phuket. Here you will find the paradise beaches everyone is talking about, but as well the adventurous nightlife. Phuket is the place to be for the famous Full Moon Party in Thailand. Dance on the beach and have the time of your life with amazing people from all over the world – Phuket is a place to stay.
The nature of Pai
Pai is the place where most Backpackers realize, that Thailand is not just about the beaches and the long party nights. Pai invites you to get lost in nature and go on countless walks and hikes. The small village up in the hills is the ideal location to explore the waterfalls and the jungle of Thailand.
The beaches of Koh Phi Phi
When it comes to choose the right island to visit, the decision is mostly between Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta or Koh Samui. While most go with Koh Samui, the island Koh Phi Phi remains calmer and more laid-back. Here you can enjoy the beach and try some snorkeling. The coral reefs before the island can be explored individually or with a boat trip. Koh Phi Phi is the ideal spot to visit for some relaxation. And the view on the clear ocean won´t get boring anytime soon.
The Khao Yai National Park
Another place to experience the nature in Thailand is the Khao Yai National Park. Numerous tracks lead to unique viewpoints and give travellers a chance to fall in love with a different perspective of the country. On your own or with some Backpacker friends, the National Park is the place to go if you aim to experience the real Thailand and dare to get a bit off the beaten track.
Always worth the trip
Due to the high variety in the best spots to visit, Thailand can´t be explored with one visit. Most of the Backpackers therefore decide to come again.
