Since 1985 and the up rise of Thailand’s economy, Thailand has become a newly industrialized country. Thailand is the 50th largest country in the world. They export approximately $105 billion a year and aid in economic support to neighboring countries.
Thailand is now a popular tourist attraction, renowned for its beauty, architecture and rapid development. I have found an unbeatable deal via Travelzoo for your travels this week: an 11-night package in Thailand for only $1299. This deal will include a roundtrip ticket from Los Angeles, ground transportation, visits to Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Phitsanulok, Sukhothal, Lampang, Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai. Breakfast sleeping accommodations, sightseeing tours and transfers are all included, as is an English speaking tour guide.
If you do not know much about Thailand or what you might do during your free time, I suggest you start exploring now! This is the best way to learn about a country and its culture. If you are into meditation, I recommend going to a temple (they are very prominent in Thailand) and breathing in the Thai air. Or check out the amazing coastline at sunset. Thailand is the largest rice exporter, so you might enjoy visiting some rice fields.
Whatever you choose to do, I hope you enjoy the vast difference between the advancing landscapes. Breath in that Thai air and quiet your mind.
