About the blog

The idea of In Love With Thailand started after I went to Thailand for the first time in 2010. I fell in love with the country, the people, the food, and my wife, Saengduan.

From my personal experience, I know it can be overwhelming to plan your first trip here and that’s why I created this blog. To help answer your questions on where to go, how to book your hotels, get your Thai sim card, and everything in between.


My wife and I visited many places so far, from very touristy places to the more local areas and I want you to feel relaxed and enjoy your stay here. And I guarantee you that once you visit Thailand for the first time, you can’t wait to book your next trip…

Travel By Destination

New to Thailand?




Bangkok is the Capital of Thailand and attracts over 20 million tourists a year, from all around the world.

There are so many cool things to see and do in this amazing city, which is also my favorite city in Thailand and if you click below, I’m going to share a lot of them with you

Thailand for beginners

When visiting Thailand for the very first time, there are a million things that go through your mind.

Do I need to get any vaccinations before I go? Is it even safe for me to travel all by myself?

Can I drink the water over there or will I get sick otherwise?

Do I need to stay in Bangkok or should I visit some of the many islands? And if so, which ones?

Don’t worry, I got your back!

Specifically for you, if you’re going for your first time, I created a specific area on this website to help you answer these more general questions.

Again, I started this website to create the best resource to help you have the time of your life.
