Thailand, a country that allures you with its 76 provinces, stunning islands, and amazing beaches. If you would ask me to give you a list of reasons for visiting this country, that list would be endless.

Let's start with the weather, its temples, and great adventure day trips, nightlife, unlimited opportunities for island hopping, incredible city shopping and mouth-watering food.

Other things that Thailand does really well is the luxurious beachfront hotels with private plunge pools and secluded beaches.

I invite you to have a look at the 12 best beach resorts in Thailand with extraordinary facilities, friendly Thai hospitality, and unbelievable views.
