14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand

Thailand is one of the most popular destinations for backpackers from all over the world. It's truly an amazing place. So why on earth would we tell you NOT to go there? Well, read on and find out if there's any sense to this gibberish at all...

1. Way too many beaches

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking in Thailand | KILROY

Thailand has some of the best beaches in the world. With so many stunning and beautiful beaches to choose from, how would you even know where to begin? Stay at home, and voilà, problem solved!

2. Way too many islands as well

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking Thailand | KILROY

Thailand has hundreds of islands both in the Gulf of Thailand and in the Andaman Sea. Exotic paradise islands like Koh Tao, Koh Phangan, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Samet, Koh Lanta, just to mention a few. It’s simply too many to choose from!

3. It’s so cheap, there must be a catch

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking Thailand | KILROY

Surely, there must be something wrong with the price here. Accommodation, food, drinks, activities and sort of everything is beyond affordable. How can it possibly be so cheap?

4. Perfect climate?

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking Thailand | KILROY

 Not a fan of warm weather or year around sun? You might be alarmed to hear that the temperature never really goes below 20 degrees in Thailand, and that is considered cold by Thai standard!

5. The Land of Smiles

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking Thailand | KILROY

Thailand is not called the “Land of Smiles” for nothing. The people in Thailand are incredibly friendly! In fact, they are so friendly and helpful, it just might be too much for us slightly more grumpy Europeans!

6. You might lose some friends

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking Thailand | KILROY

One thing is certain… You’ll annoy your friends and family with all your stunning photos and snaps on social media.

7. Same, same, but different

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking Thailand | KILROY

What does it actually mean!?? Does anybody really know?

8. The lurking danger of the longtail boat

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking Thailand | KILROY

Have you ever tried to climb in and out of a longtail boat? It’s so much harder than it looks like! Consider yourself warned.

9. There’s nothing to do

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking Thailand | KILROY

Statement: "Thailand is boring and there is nothing to do." Right... Except of course diving or snorkelling, or shopping, or trekking, or volunteering, or sailing, or fitness camps, or whatever…

10. A bucket will never be just a bucket again

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking Thailand | KILROY

Ready for another bucket?

11. Rabies will become a real danger

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking Thailand | KILROY

Why get a rabies vaccine, you might have wondered before you left. Surely nothing you need? But then… The sudden urge of petting every single stray dog you come across will sneak up on you. Every single one!!

12. Full moon parties

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking Thailand | KILROY

Yeah, it sounds like the most fun you’ll ever have, and it is! Just remember that you might literally have elephants stomping on your head the next morning!

13. Tasty, delicious and amazing Thai food

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking Thailand | KILROY

Cheap, amazing and delicious food Thai food! All day long! You’ll be a Thai food-addict before you know it. It’s not good to be an addict, even if it’s Thai food.

14. You will always want to go back

14 reasons why you should NOT visit Thailand | Backpacking Thailand | KILROY

Thailand is the type of place you will always want to go back to, and you’ll never forget all your amazing memories. The only cure? Book a new trip!

So, is it time to book your next Thailand adventure?
