Thailand is truly an amazing place and there's probably never a better time to visit than right now;
in fact, there are many reasons to visit Thailand.
Don't be put off by some of the troubles highlighted on the news recently.
The problems stem from Thai people wanting a new election and have nothing to do with visitors and tourists.
Soon there will be a new election in Thailand and everything should settle down.
But currently there are some great deals on flights and accommodation to be had as a result of less people travelling to see this wonderful country.
Here are just 8 reasons to visit Thailand.

Thailand has some of the best food anywhere in the world.
Thai restaurants in western cities are a pale reflection of the wonderfully aromatic and spicy #food available throughout Thailand.
The other major plus is that it's so cheap to eat.
What you pay $50 for at a very good Thai restaurant in America, you can get in Thailand for about $3 or $4.
Plus it tastes better and you're getting the real Thai food and not a western #reflection of it.
Thai food is fresh as can be, often #spicy and there are so many dishes to try.
Yes you'll find Pad Thai and some other well known dishes that we all know about, but there are a myriad of other dishes including curries, soups and salads that are bursting with rich flavour and ingredients picked fresh that day.
