While the army of Thailand summoned journalists as well as academics to be seen as anti-coups and detained ousted political leaders issuing stern warnings on television, travel to Thailand remains usual business claim tourists who are enjoying Thailand’s famed beaches and travel for sightseeing in Bangkok.

Making life worth living
We all have to work to make a living, but how do we spend that amount? Indeed we have our chores and other routine expenses, but one should make it a practice to set aside some funds for travel. Yes, when you travel, you are opening up your mind to absorb the goodness of nature, imagine the freshness that you will feel thereafter, imagine how better you can go ahead with your mundane tasks when you are back!
Make it a mission
Everyone has a bucket list. Make one for yourself. Make a promise to yourself that by the time you turn 50, you would’ve visited at least one country in each of the seven continents and would’ve enjoyed a swim in each of the five oceans. With the advancement in today’s time, roaming around the world is not such a big task as it would’ve been a couple of decades ago.
You can travel even on account of work, if you are lucky, your company would sponsor your trips. Most sales organizations have this reward of sending their employees on a vacation to exotic places in the world on completion of a certain quarter or achieving high targets. If you are at a nascent stage of your career, choose a path that will allow you to travel so that you can work as well as enjoy the beauty of nature at the same time.
