Thailand is considered one of the most exotic and expensive tourist destinations. But if you abandon the popular resorts and drive around Thailand on your own, you will be pleasantly surprised by the low prices and good quality of service.

However, I want to warn you in advance: it is quite possible that after discovering this country, you will not want to return back. And such cases are no exception.
You can talk about the new Suvarnabumi airport in Bangkok for a long and fascinating time. Despite the fact that its area is very impressive, it is very easy to navigate there: the space is organized so competently that you will always find where to check in and get your luggage.
Before you leave the city, exchange $ 50 for Thai baht (believe me, this amount will be enough for the first time) and do not be too lazy to go to the tourist information desk. They will give you a map of the city and tell you how to find a special bus that will take you to the bus terminal, from where you can get to the center of Bangkok very cheaply. As a rule, all Europeans go to Khao San Road - one of the most tourist streets in the capital. Make no mistake, even in the capital, you can easily find food and accommodation for a reasonable price. Only promoted hotels and resorts are an exception.

And all the more friendly they are to visitors.
