Thailand really does have so much to offer travellers. You can easily island hop, visit some floating markets and even go to the ancient Khmer castles too. If you want something to do in this vibrant Asian nation, then simply look below.
Grand Palace- Bangkok
The Grand Palace is a stunning sight to say the least. The buildings surrounding it are over 200 years old and it is quite possibly one of the most recognisable destinations in Bangkok. Sure, at times, you may feel as though it feels like a tourist trap but at the end of the day, the complex and vast history is dripping in grandeur. It’s been the residence of the Kings of Thailand for years now and when you are in the area, you can also visit the Wat Pho which is nearby. This is home to the biggest Buddha in Thailand. Watching the sunset at this location is particularly attractive. If you are busy then you can easily take a quick tour of the area at night, as the palace lights up and it’s a very romantic experience to say the least.
Elephant Nature Park- Chiang Mai
Elephants freely roam in the elephant park. The elephant is the symbol for Thailand and it’s considered to be a very revered animal. There are so many ways for you to encounter these wonderful creatures, but the Elephant Nature Park is the best one out there. They work hard to make sure that the elephants there are rehabilitated and this means that every trip you make, helps them to further their work. If you want to combine your elephant experience with some luxurious accommodation, then you can easily visit the Elephant Hills. This is a comfortable camp and it also gives you the chance to interact with the animals there. If you’d rather have a more luxurious experience, then why not hire a pool villa in Hua Hin? This is the best way for you to relax and put your feet up after a long day venturing out and seeing the sights.
Golden Triangle- Myanmar, Laos and Thailand
The Golden Triangle is where Myanmar, Thailand and Laos meet. If you stand in the Thailand river, you can then look right across to see Laos and Myanmar. You may want to try and hire a boat so that you can get an even closer look. Of course, there are also plenty of market stalls and elephant status too. The signage will help you to ensure that you don’t get lost, not to mention that you also have the Hall of Opium too. This is in the Golden Triangle Park and if you don’t know a lot about the history of the area, then this is the best and easiest way for you to learn everything that you need to know. If you would much rather venture somewhere off course, then you will be glad to know that you can just keep on cruising until you get to either Laos or Myanmar.
