A friend of mine, who is also a traveler, suggested me a budget trip to Thailand and here I was, ready to explore another lovely place. I packed my bag and set out. My trip to Thailand was amazing. I did everything without compromising on my budget. Here, I am sharing my experiences and tips for the budget travelers, who are planning a trip to the Thai country.
