The good news is, Indians are eligible for visa on arrival in Thailand, as long as they are not planning to stay there for more than 30 days. Thailand is actually the first international destination for a large number of Indian travelers. Thailand is bordered by many other south-east Asian countries such as Malaysia, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and if you wish, you can also include these countries in your itinerary.

Tourism is a major contributor to Thailand's economy, contributing 6% of its gross domestic product. As such, Thailand receives millions of tourists every year, who go there to sample the country's legendary hospitality, historical and cultural sights. Thailand is well known for its Buddhist culture, architecture, tropical islands, gorgeous Southern beaches, bird life, museums, and nightlife. If you can spare some time, you can also try your hand at Thai cooking, Thai massage or even learn something about Buddhism. Try to time your visit around one of the major national festivals like Loy Krathong or Songkran.
