COVID 19 makes travelers’ schedules scattered. Different countries impose different regulations on travelers and visitors. All these processes make tourists difficult to take decisions about their destinations. So in this regard, I think you can enjoy attractive tourist spots from your home. Thailand is my first choice.
We understand that travel can be difficult for some of you right now, as it is for us. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the best ways to visit Thailand without leaving your house. Continue reading to immerse yourself in Thailand’s tropical vibes, stunning landscapes, warm locals, vibrant cities, and delectable food.
Thailand, the perfect mix of laid-back and bustling, is not only known as the ‘land of the free’ for maintaining its independence while Western countries took over the land in Southeast Asia but it is also known as the ‘land of smiles.’
Its inhabitants are proud to be one of the world’s happiest, consistently ranking first on the list of the world’s happiest nations, and we can learn a lot from them. When it comes to happiness, the often-lauded hustle culture that states “the more you work, the more celebrated you are” will not get you very far.
Slowing down and appreciating the little things in life, on the other hand, could definitely point you in the right direction and help you get there
Enter a Thai state of mind, be kind to yourself and others, and adopt the Thai phrase ‘Mai bpen rai,’ which translates as ‘Never mind’ or ‘Don’t worry,’ for a more logical approach to life.
Go Outside To View The Sunrise Or Sunset
You can be thousands of miles away from Thailand’s breathtaking landscapes, but you can never be too far away from nature. Recognizing nature’s healing powers can change your life. Stopping what you’re doing and appreciate a sunrise or sunset outside.
There is no better way to begin or end your day. Enjoying dusk and dawn outdoors, on the other hand, will help you feel energized and ready to face a new day in the morning and wind down in the evening. If you were on a Thai island, you would probably get close to the sea for sunrise or sunset. Even if you are far from the coast, simply watching the sunset over the horizon can be rejuvenating.
Include Wellness In Your Daily Routine
Keeping your mind, body, and soul healthy is essential for living a fulfilling life, and Thai people understand this well. However, approaching this holistic concept from all angles and incorporating wellness practices can be a daunting task at first.
Fortunately, you can now work on your physical fitness, mental health, and emotions with the help of professionals. And the guys at the exclusive destination spa Chiva Som are well aware of it.
