Thousands of people visit each year to soak up the sun, sand, culture and cuisine and immerse themselves in the stunning natural attractions, fascinating history and discount shopping. With affordable accommodation and cheap flights, it's no surprise that these relaxing island destinations and modern cities are so popular with young people, couples and families. Cheap flights from Brisbane to Thailand also make this destination a favourite with visitors from Queensland and its capital city.
