Honestly, if you’re not going to get off your butt to experience the sights, smells and especially culture that Thailand has to offer while you’re on a holiday there, you might as well not be there at all. So while you’re there or are planning a trip to go there, make sure these 10 things are on your to-do-list!
Bangkok’s Grand Palace
The Grand Palace is a huge chunk of Thailand’s culture so not visiting it means you are missing out on what makes Thailand an amazing country. It consists of throne halls, government offices, Buddhist temples and beautiful works of art.
Sunday Night Walking Street at Chiang Mai
A must-experience shopping culture and food hunting at Chiang Mai is very popular amongst tourists. There are nightly bazaars in the evenings but the largest market that happens on Sunday evenings is the one you need to experience.
Floating Markets of Damnoen Saduak
A very important part of the local culture in Thailand, the vendors there sell things from souvenirs, clothing, food as well as fresh produce. While you’re there, have yourself some noodles or spring rolls on a boat while taking in the market scene.
Chiang Rai White Temple
If you think all Buddhist temples in Thailand look the same, well this one will be a feast for your eyes. Its unique concept and design created using mosaics and mirror pieces and the unconventional white from the common gold definitely sets it apart from the rest of the traditional temples.
Thailand welcomes even tourists to join in their festivities and one festival that you should experience is the Songkran or Thai New Year water festival. It’s a fun water wars experience where you get to feel like a kid again.
Blessed with over 5,000 miles of shoreline, you can travel on a long-tailed boat, do some exploring and visit as many islands as possible! Because, why not? You’ll stumble on some quaint white sandy beaches and ideal places to go snorkelling.
This well-known combat sport which originated from Thailand itself should definitely be experienced first-hand while you’re there be it by taking lessons to learn the combat art itself or just watching a Muay Thai match.
Elephant Nature Park
An eco-tour not to be missed especially for animal and nature lovers. The park is a sanctuary for elderly, abused and injured elephants that are rescued and need rehabilitation. There you can interact with the animals by feeding and bathing them. You’ll definitely leave there with a beautiful experience.
The Thai Experience
Located in the Ko Samui district, this closed-door restaurant offers an amazing dining experience of modern Thai cuisine and Thailand’s culture. It has a unique concept like that of a dinner party with cocktails, a three course meal and lots of fun and laughter.
Phang Nga Bay
The sights and scenes are almost out of this world at Phang Nga Bay with its uniquely beautiful limestone cliffs and rock formations, lagoons, caves and breath-takings sceneries of the horizon. Perfect location for canoeing and swimming!
