As I mentioned before Thailand always been for me as something exotic place to visit and actually it really is.
thailand is one of the most popular places for russian tourists so if you want to avoid them you should search and take the most luxury hotels for stay and actually its tbe best way to relax and to enjoy the best beaches and views.
I arrived to Bangkok airport from Hong Kong and I didnt have visa *I actually could do it before if I knew Im going to visit Thailand) but the good thing that I can do it upon arrival but the minus is it takes lots of time because of many tourists. It took me around 2 hours just to wait in the line. I took photo for 2 minutes and filled an application while I was waiting.
