Thailand is well-known as a top destination for hedonism and backpacking, but it also has an ancient history of spiritual retreat. This creates a supportive environment for retreat, whether you attend a strict meditation retreat in a monastery, or choose from among the many other types of retreats that are now offered in Thailand, whether it’s a yoga teacher training, a meditation retreat, or a detox cleanse.
The natural beauty of Thailand, of course, makes an excellent setting for a retreat. Many of the retreat centres are located on fantastic beaches, and even on the islands dotting the coastline. Imagine walking out of a yoga class just in time to see the sun setting over the ocean waves. Or getting up in time to go surfing in the sun before breakfast... Now that’s the good life!
