Thailand continues to attract new tourists. One of the most touristy countries in Southeast Asia, it is currently becoming the preferred destination of the French. You wonder why the French choose to travel to Thailand. This is precisely our theme of the day.

Travelling to Thailand for its beautiful islands and heavenly beaches

More than 67% of French people love to spend holidays by the sea. This is one of the reasons why many French people decide to travel to Thailand whenever they have the opportunity. Indeed, when one wants to enjoy the dream beach in Asia, one immediately thinks of the Thai islands. The country is full of beautiful islands with breathtaking landscapes like Koh Kood and Koh Lipe. Thailand is also home to the island Koh-Lantha, the location of the famous reality show Koh-Lanta. Located on the Andaman Sea, the island is distinguished by its beautiful white sand beaches and its oversized cliffs plunging into emerald water. Koh Lipe Island is home to three of Thailand’s most beautiful island beaches. Its crystalline waters are bordered by beaches with fine white sand and blinding white which invite to walk as well as to relax.

Travel in Thailand to discover its sites and historical monuments

In addition to its magnificent islands, Thailand is also famous for its extraordinary monuments: temples, Buddha statues, ruins dating back to the height of the Kingdom of Siam. Travelling to Thailand without visiting the Wat Pho in Bangkok is like going to France without visiting the majestic Eiffel Tower. The temple is known worldwide for its immense golden reclining Buddha. Still in Bangkok, the capital of the country, you will also find the temple Wat Phra Kaew. Admittedly, its emerald Buddha is smaller than that of Wat Pho, but it is particularly venerated in Thailand. For lovers of nature and beautiful landscapes, the park of Sam Roi Yod has some beautiful surprises in store for them. It conceals the superb Phra Nakhon Cave, incredibly photogenic, with its opening that lets the light pass through in a surprising way.

Travelling to Thailand for its gastronomic dish

Thailand has its own culinary recipes, rich in tastes and flavours. Its gastronomy is thus a reason in itself to stay in this Southeast Asian country. According to some polls, the typical Thai dish is considered to be one of the best in the world. Although the destination is full of luxury restaurants and resorts, visitors prefer to immerse themselves in the captivating world of street food. Street vendors usually offer the most delicious and inexpensive dishes. In Thailand, food and accommodation cater for all budgets.
