Thailand is one of the most famous destinations for Indian tourists. What makes Thailand so famous among Indians is the sheer number of things to see and do; easy flight connectivity to Thailand and more so Thailand provides a Visa on Arrival for Indian passport holders.

Most of the Indian tourists spend 2 nights in Pattaya and 2 nights in Bangkok. That’s a standard itinerary. But if you have the time and will, Thailand is such a big country that you can easily spend two weeks there. Here are some itineraries that you can follow, whether you are traveling on Thailand tour packages or independently.
