The dollar goes a long way in Thailand. The cost of your addiction treatment in Thailand is much less than a rehab in the US. There are luxury addiction centers in Florida and California that charge up to $100,000 per month. For these addiction centers an insurance company may pay $25,000 and then you must self-pay the other $75,000 and these addiction centers may not even be on the beach. Beware of addiction centers whose names include something with the words “Sea”, “Ocean”, “Bayside”, “Harbor” etc. as they can really be several miles away from any water.
When you visit, expect warm weather and mostly clear days. Thailand can best be described as tropical, for the majority of the country during most of the year.
Thailand has some of the best beaches in the world. Warm, clear water, stunning vistas, and marine life to gawk at as you swim, snorkel or scuba. Plus, there are so many different types of beaches in Thailand. Our addiction center is located right on a white sand beach and offers many water sports.
Few will argue that Thai food is delicious! But if you’ve only been exposed to it at Thai restaurants back home, you’re in for a surprise. Here at our addiction center, the food is better and there is more variety. You’ll easily be served favorites such as pad thai and curry, but you’ll also find an amazing selection of salads, noodles, snacks and Thailand has the most delicious fried chicken in the world
5. The People
They don’t call it the “Land of Smiles” for nothing. By and large, the people of Thailand are friendly, open and kind.
If you like markets, bargains or cool and quirky stuff, you’ll find shopping in Thailand very rewarding. Big city markets carry everything from shoes to art, and the malls in Bangkok are some of the fanciest in the world.
Once you’re in the country, it’s easy and cheap to get around, thanks mostly to local budget airlines like Nok Air, Air Asia, and Bangkok Airways. If you book ahead and aren’t traveling during the peak season, it’s quite common to get a round-trip ticket from Bangkok to Phuket for $100.
8. Thailand’s Buddhist Heritage
Buddhism is the country’s predominant religion and it influences everything from the architecture to the way people interact with each other. Any of the country’s major cities have breathtaking Buddhist temples to visit, “Chiang Mai” and “Bangkok” especially.
