Amazing Thailand! The figures can be interpreted in different ways, but some facts are indisputable. Especially when they repeat themselves. Bangkok is still the most visited city on the planet, ahead of Paris and London! The Thai capital, one of the most exciting cities in the world, attracts more than 22 million tourists every year like a magnet, bringing in its wake the cities of Phuket and Pattaya, which are also among the top 20 in this MasterCard ranking. One thing is certain, there are many solo travellers in Thailand who should find someone to talk to, or even share a little trip with, in this exceptional country. Chiang Mai, for its part, has another list, that of Condé Nast Traveller, designating it as one of the best tourist destinations in the world. It must be said that the North Rose has many assets to promote: a strong cultural wealth, solid infrastructures, a peaceful atmosphere, quality restaurants, the kindness of its inhabitants... These qualities are not unique to the country's second largest city, they are found all over Thailand, which has made tourism one of its priorities

Unspoilt territories

So, don't worry if you decide to walk the Thai trails alone. After having well marked out the main tourist routes, the government decided, for example, to promote new territories by devoting colossal resources to them, both in the north and in the south, such as the province of Chumpon for example, while at the same time trying to relieve congestion in already very popular provinces like Phuket and Krabi. Between these three territories is the magnificent Khao Sok National Park. Strangely little frequented by Westerners, this green setting is an extraordinary ecological and biological reserve, made up of karst peaks that seem to spring from the water, dense virgin jungle, exceptional fauna and flora. This wonder is not unique, Thailand is full of treasures of the same kind, from north to south, from the Similian Islands to the borders of Issan. Some sites are natural, such as Khao Yai National Park, Erawan National Park, Pha Taem National Park... and others directly linked to the will of Men or Kings, such as the bewitching ancient city of Ayutthaya or Sukkhothai, ancient capitals of Siam, built several centuries ago by powerful monarchs

A festive destination

A rich new year is looming in the Kingdom of Siam, in addition to the usual festivities such as the Chinese New Year on February 5, Songkran, the Buddhist New Year and Water Festival on April 13, Loy Krathong, the Festival of Lights on November 11. Of course, the extended holidays on all the beaches of the country should allow lonely adventurers... not to stay that way for too long. It's up to you to choose your dates carefully and enjoy this fabulous destination for an unforgettable solo vacation.
