Top Meditation Retreats in Thailand

Buddhism drove this originally with the array of temples open to all and their attached silent and Vipassana meditation centers.
It became the destination to come to for rejuvenation and personal development of the mind, body and soul.
Mindfulness and Buddhism naturally flow into the way of life and the programs on offer.
To this day Thailand is still one of the top destinations for learning and deepening your meditation.
