There’s a reason that Thailand is the most popular of the countries in Southeast Asia to visit. Compared to it’s neighbors, this is a country with great infrastructure, plenty of the amenities that matter to foreign visitors (like fast wifi and spa therapies), and a high percentage of English speaking locals who always seem happy to help. In addition, the cell phone networks are great; check out local recommendations in our Southeast Asia Cell Phone Guide.
Thailand is often referred to as the ‘land of smiles,’ and most visitors that I know would agree. The climate is fantastic, the food is out of this world, and your first world dollar goes a lot further here than it does at home. In the past few years it’s become a hot spot for the digital nomad crowd and if you’re looking for a place to hunker down and spend a few weeks to a few months developing your work-life balance, you’d be hard pressed to find a better place to do it than Thailand.
Of course the two big logistical questions are always transportation and accommodation. Where will you stay? How will you get there? This post consolidates the best of our resources on those topics, brought to you, first hand, by people who’ve lived and worked in Thailand extensively.
