There are so many reasons why Thailand, the Land of Smiles, is pegged as a tourist paradise.

Visiting Thailand for the first time, especially if you are from the West, will definitely change the way you perceive Asia because Thailand’s culture has been largely independent and resistant of colonial powers, and because of this, spaces where its traditions have been well-preserved are highly accessible to tourists. Here are some of the places you must not miss on your trip to the Land of Smiles.

Bangkok

Bangkok is the loudest and most colorful melting pot in Thailand. It is the party city and also pegged as an LGBT-friendly locale for gays, lesbians, and other homosexual tourists.
