According to data gathered from the Framingham Heart Study, a landmark study that began in 1948 and spanned over the course of 20 years, women who vacationed only every six years or less were nearly eight times more likely to develop heart disease or have a heart attack compared to women who traveled at least twice a year.

* Thailand is known as the is the only Southeast Asian country that was never colonized by an European country. In fact, in the Thai language, the name of the country is Prathet Thai which means “land of the free.” Very fitting!

* There’s a spiritual peace there with about 35,000 temples in Thailand. Thailand is truly a land of ancient temples.
* Thailand cares for it’s animals. About a tenth of all of the animal species on the planet call Thailand home, and a tenth of all bird species. To put that into perspective, Thailand has more birds than Europe and America combined!

* A smile can go a long way, and you’ll find more smiles in Thailand than just about anywhere else. In fact, it’s sometimes known as the “land of smiles” because the people of Thailand seem to be always ready with a smile. They are a peace-loving culture, desiring harmony over conflict.

* Thailand is made up of approximately 1,430 islands. Many of the islands have become famous for being featured in Hollywood movies like the paradise of Ko Phi Phi which we will be going to!
