But the heavy rush on such occasions would not prevent tourists from enjoying the festivities, as they can rent a Thailand condo room at much lower rates. Parades and dances can often be seen from the window of these rooms. They are often well-equipped with all the basic facilities, along with certain added amenities for tourists to have a pleasant and memorable stay. A seaview condo can not only help travelers to enjoy the festivities held during the important festivals, but would also offer them unobstructed views of the beach nearby.
