Busy moms often think it hard to take time out from their hectic schedule and get on the yoga mat. They believe so because yoga requires one to remain in peace, in spite of the chaotic surrounding. Practicing yoga also requires one not to be bothered by distractions.
While March saw the first signs of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, April is a bit of an awkward mix of temperatures. It’s not yet hot enough to hit the pool but you don’t have to wear too many layers either. Pack that waterproof jacket as it’s quite certain it will rain. As for the Southern Hemisphere, autumn is at its most beautiful so grapes picking, and gorgeous foliage will make you pack your bags.

Staying healthy is something we are all interested in, particularly after a certain age. Since exercise and diet are the one two key actions through which we can preserve our health, it’s no wonder that any activity that combines both can become very popular.
Thailand is probably only second to Bali when it comes to famous yoga destinations in Southeast Asia. This comes to no surprise, as Thailand is blessed with temperate climate and pristine beaches. One of its many pulls is also its hospitality. The Thai people are known to be friendly and welcoming, courteous and kind. Yoga retreats in Thailand are also very affordable, making it a favorite among budget travelers.
Thailand offers a wide range of yoga retreats ranging from the more traditional Hatha yoga retreats to the more contemporary Bikram yoga retreats. Seaside towns like Koh Samui also offer yoga and meditation retreats by the beach – affording you an opportunity for peace and tranquility.
Experience riding on a tuk tuk in Thailand! This quaint mode of transportation will surely save you time on traveling.

Like many countries in Asia, Thailand is steep in traditions that are fiercely adhered to by its people. As a traveler, it’s best to be aware of these important do’s and don’ts:
You should know that while the climate is tropical and humid all year round, there are three weather seasons in Thailand: a cool one, a hot one, and a wet one. You will find that the cool one, occurring from November to April, offers the best weather in Thailand.
Sun lovers should know that the wet season in Thailand starts in July and ends in October, and it is during this time that it is less advisable to visit. Unless, of course you have nothing against constant rain. May is usually when the highest temperatures in Thailand occur So, depending on whether you like extreme weather or not, we advise you to also skip this month.
For yogis, some of the most popular destinations in Thailand range from breathtaking islands to vibrant cities. In random order, we would like to mention Bangkok, Koh Samui, Chiang Mai, Koh Phangan, and Phuket amongst our top favorite points of interest in Thailand.
