It’s no secret that Thailand is a tourist hotspot, though surprisingly you don’t often hear people complain about too many tourists here. Not that there aren’t, they’re just about everywhere. Often loud, regularly intoxicated, and always having fun, visitors here seem to get along harmoniously, contradicting the effect they may be having on the country and its local people. When the hangover wears off, you may find the time to discover how much beauty the country has to offer. From its stunning beaches and countless diving opportunities, to its world class rock climbing on the dramatic karst limestone cliffs, or its jungles, rivers and waterfalls, there is never a shortage of natural wonders (or beer) to justify a stay of far longer than first planned.
