Thailand is a great travel destination. There’s plenty to see and do, the people are exceptionally friendly and the food is fantastic. It’s popular with backpackers, which means there are loads of hostels and tour companies catering to your needs and it’s really easy to get around.
Another great thing about Thailand is that it has a fantastic vibe. If you’re feeling physically, mentally or emotionally exhausted, Thailand is a brilliant choice for recharging your batteries. Here are some of the ways you can do just that.
LEARN ABOUT AND PRACTICE YOGA
Yoga has a long history in Thailand. Various forms of yoga have been practised there for over 2,500 years. There are all kinds of classes and retreats available, including tantra classes. These are a fantastic way to re-awaken yourself spiritually, sexually, physically and emotionally. During these classes, you learn skills that you can take away and use to greatly improve your life. Not only does this give you the chance to pause and rest, but you can also learn how to recognise the early signs of stress and how to deal with them effectively. You can also find out how to stop modern life from overwhelming you.
BENEFIT FROM A THAI YOGA MASSAGE
For thousands of years, the Thai people have been using massage to rest and heal the body. This form of massage has its roots in Yoga, but is actually a separate practice. If you find an experienced practitioner, they can make a great difference to how you feel.
STAY AT A WELLNESS RETREAT
Scattered throughout the country are numerous wellness and healing retreats. Many of them are really wonderful places to stay. The best ones are true sanctuaries. This makes them a great option for people who are feeling a bit worn down.
They usually offer a range of treatments., but exactly what is on offer varies from one retreat to the next. Some specialise in detox, while others’ main purpose is to relax the body and mind. It’s a good idea to check online reviews and forums to make sure you book a wellness retreat that really suits your needs.
Usually, they are set up in spectacular locations, allowing you to get close to nature at the same time. This often has an additional rejuvenating effect.
VISIT SOME OF THAILAND’S NATURAL WONDERS
Compared with a lot of places, Thailand is very unspoiled. There are some truly stunning natural sights for visitors to enjoy. Khao Sok National Park is a great example. This beautiful pristine natural reserve covers 739 km. Within its boundaries are an ancient evergreen rainforest and a spectacular lake so big it’s classified as an inland sea.
There are also some lovely coastal beauty spots. Among the best are Phang Nga Bay and the Similan Islands. You could spend a year travelling around Thailand and still not see all of the natural beauty it has to offer.
