In Search of Happiness: Thailand

A popular destination amongst European tourists, the people of Thailand are very relaxed. This isn’t surprising, given that several relaxation techniques were created here. Antoine goes on a quest in search of the origins of Thai massage, whilst trying to better understand the culture in the ‘Land of Smiles’.

He attempts adventure climbing at one of the top 10 most beautiful places in the world, meets a typical Thai masseuse and tries to learn the secret behind the country’s rich gastronomy. Finally, our well-being guide will need to culminate all his energy for a Muay Thai lesson – a combat sport created for the Thai military and practiced all over the world.

Other episodes include California, Bali, Sweden, Brazil, Russia and Morocco.
