With its turquoise waters, consistent winds, great food, and happy smiles, Thailand offers a fantastic backdrop for kitesurfing adventures. Thailand has the longest kite season in SE Asia, but the wind is mostly light. If you’re looking for a full-blast kite vacation you might be better off in other SE Asian countries, such as Vietnam, Philippines and Cambodia. But if you’re happy with a couple of kite days among other activities, Thailand is for you!
