Earlier this week, a new tourist visa was announced for travel to Thailand, and it's interesting. Much like other countries, the East Asian nation is looking for ways to entice travelers back to their borders amid the pandemic; a popular solution has been to offer visitors extended-stay visas, so you could, in theory, work from home from the other side of the world for a significant amount of time. Thailand kicked it up a notch with their visa option, which allows for a nearly nine-month visit.
The conditions aren't super appealing and actually sound kind of difficult to comply with, but still -- nine months in a gorgeous island country? It's fun to dream. And we're here to facilitate that dream by showing you some of the most gorgeous stops you could theoretically make on your exploration of Thailand.
