Holidays to Thailand have been recommended by one writer who recently went there and found its beaches to be a haven of tranquillity.

Andrew Spooner, in an article for the Guardian, said that Thailand’s tourist industry has not yet completely bounced back from the disruption caused in late 2008 and that as a result, travellers heading there could benefit from discounts and quieter beaches.

“Choose to visit now and you could experience the kingdom at its best – the palaces and temples of Bangkok are relatively deserted,” he commented.

However, Mr Spooner added, this is unlikely to last too long, since backpackers and adventure tourists have already returned to Thailand, with many guesthouses already full for January and February.

Thailand could be a good destination to visit while the values of the euro and the dollar have slumped against the pound, since travellers are likely to get more for their money.
