Nightlife, shopping, Affordability, Tiger Temple, Pristine Beaches, Scuba Diving or Snorkeling – What is it that attracts Indians to Thailand for holiday? Read more…

Thailand is one foreign location which is a treat for almost every budget. Besides, Thailand has almost everything that any backpacker or tourist might want their holiday destination to be. Here I’ll be specific as to why Indians love to spend their holiday in Thailand:

1. Because Holiday Packages of Thailand is Cheaper than Packages to Kerala, Rajasthan & Andamans

We Indians love to get the maximum value for  money (VFM zindabad!). And now that holiday packages to Thailand come at a cheaper rate why visit Kerala and Andamans all over again? Needless to say, this has been the major reason why maximum of the newlyweds head off straight to Thailand for their honeymoon. Makes sense – When a foreign destination comes as cheap as a nearby location why miss the chance of getting a stamp on our passport, isn’t it?

After the block buster movie Zindagi Na Milegi Doobara, every third Indian urban guy and girl wants to try Scuba Diving. No wonder, Thailand is one of the World’s best site for Scuba Diving. Besides, it comes cheap as compared to other foreign scuba diving locations.

3. The Nightlife of Bangkok

Bangkok being the Sin City of the East, it is a popular destination for bachelors to experience the exotic nightlife of Bangkok. Needless to say, often a Bachelor trip to Bangkok raises eyebrows from their female counterparts. And if these ladies in question have seen ‘The Hangover” movie may forbid them form going altogether!

4. The Delicious Food

A big challenge for Indians traveling abroad is food. We like our spicy food with vegetraia options. Thai cuisine is something we love with it being rich in spicy coconut and peanut based sauces with both vegetarian and non vegetarian options. Thai street food is delicious and street vendors are abundant. Foodies get to indulge in  authentic noodle dishes, soup, the fried rice , satay and different types of BBQ food. With food this good we do n longer need to hunt for a “desi” restaurant in this land.

8. Petting Adult Tigers

As soon as Indians are back from a holiday in Thailand, the first thing we see is their photos on Facebook patting adult tigers and feeding them milk with bottle. Needless to says, Indians love spending a day taming these wild beats in Kanchanapuri as well as the Tiger Temple of Thailand. Even though India is the original land of this magnificent beast – it is impossible to interact with  them this closely. Now thats a big hit with kids and adults alike. And who can resist a status update “chilling with tigers”!

10. To Enjoy the Warm International Environment

The streets are full of people around the world. Tourist across the world chose this “land of smile” destination as their holiday spot not only because of its beautiful resources but also because of its warm and friendly people. Indians are no exception!

11. Historical Connection 

Thai History is linked with ancient India and it gives us a sense of familiarity and pride visiting places like Ayutthaya (an ancient place named after Ayodhya) an archaeological site filled with historical ruins and monuments. Also the Buddhist temples are a huge attraction for Indian tourists.
