Thailand has tourism down pat, and planning a vacation in Thailand as your first country in Southeast Asia has never been easier.

Regardless of your budget, Thailand has all the makings for a vacation that you'll remember. From backpackers who live on $20 per day to luxury travelers willing to pay $50 for a single cup of coffee, Thailand has something to make a broad range of travelers happy.

You'll find culture, cheap food, exciting cities, and island beaches -- all easily accessible via the good tourist infrastructure.

No need to book tours in advance, on which you'll probably overpay to be taken to crowded destinations. Instead, hit the ground in Bangkok, talk to a few travelers, then walk into any travel agency and book your activities and transportation.

Despite being a peak month, now is actually one of the best times to visit Thailand -- especially if you can make it to Songkran, one of the most exciting festivals in Thailand, this April.

Use this detailed Thailand vacation guide for planning your first trip!
