Thailand is one of the top travel destinations in the world because of its stunning scenery and dynamic culture. Thailand provides visitors with a varied and rewarding experience, ranging from the vibrant marketplaces of Bangkok to the tranquil beaches of Phuket. Travellers can enjoy a variety of activities in Thailand’s engaging and exciting cities. Thailand’s vibrant metropolis, Bangkok, is home to historic temples that combine seamlessly with contemporary skyscrapers to provide visitors a taste of the old and the new. Chiang Mai, a city in northern Thailand surrounded by lush mountains, is a sight to behold for those seeking peace and quiet. The islands of Phuket, Krabi, and Koh Samui are stunning places that provide immaculate beaches, glistening oceans, and bright coral reefs, making them the perfect tropical retreats. Building a link between India and Thailand will promote trade and business in addition to increasing tourism in both countries.
