Thailand Land of Smiles Best Place in the World – The Ultimate Travel Guide
Thailand. Why is Thailand loved so much?
Freedom: You take responsibility for yourself. If it is a hot day and you feel like riding in the back of a pick up truck without a seat belt, you can. The police will not pull you over and hassle you with some bs. If you want to ride a motorbike with 3 people on it? that is OK too. It is not uncommon to see a whole family of 6 or 7 on a scooter with the dog sitting in the front foot area. If you feel like drinking some alcohol, hey you can walk into a 7 eleven but it and walk around the street with an open bottle. So you have a lot of freedom but with it you have a lot more responsibility.
