While every country has been hit hard during the pandemic, Thailand, also known as the ‘Land of Smiles’, struggled a lot to keep the influx of foreign currency. The country is trying to revive the tourism industry. So far, it has decriminalised cannabis, and reports suggest Thai lawmakers have recommended to the Parliament to open casinos in the prime cities of the country.
Thailand is also among 50 other countries where Indians can travel without a visa. Their visa on arrival guidelines require a person to be travelling for tourism and must have a valid passport. Why wait when you can plan a budget-friendly holiday in another country?
