Are you planning to go on a vacation with your friends and family but you have no idea where to go? You have come to the right place and we will help you in decision making. It goes without saying that there are many memorable places to go but Thailand should be a priority. But why Thailand? Well, Thailand is one of the best tourist destinations in South East Asia. It’s distinguished with a rich history, breath-taking beaches, finger licking meals, and stunning temples. Also called ‘Land of Smiles’, Thailand has the very humble and friendliest people and here are some of the things you can do once you get there.
Visit the Grand Palace
Set in the heart of Bangkok, the Grand Palace is a beautiful gold-tipped building which is over 200 years old. It only has an area of 218,400 square meters but you can spend the entire day in there without getting bored.
For nearly 150 years, the Grand Palace was the official residence of the king; that is his home, court, the government of Thailand and the Royal Mint. However, you must dress decently to get into the palace. Once you get there, don’t miss to climb to the top of the stunning temple of Dawn famously known as Wat Arun.
Get a Thai Massage
Does Thai massage ring a bell on your mind? If not, visit Thailand and have a thrilling experience of a unique message that works on your body’s pressure points and at the same time stretches your body. Be warned that it will be hard to decide on whether to go for a reflexology foot massage or traditional Thai Body massage. After having a long day visiting different places in Thailand, opting for both messages will be a great idea. For a reflexology foot massage, your feet are massaged for about an hour and for a Thai massage, your body is positioned into yoga-like poses. The entire experience will make you feel invigorated and balanced and during your next trip to Thailand, the first thing you’ll be looking forward to is Thai massage.
Visit The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is about 100km of Bangkok and should be on your list of must-do things in Thailand. It is one of the most famous and biggest floating market in Thailand and deserves all your time and effort. Once you get there, you’ll find many boats going up and others going down the canals selling different varieties of fruits and foods.
This also gives you an opportunity to try Thailand cuisines and learn about the history of Thailand and how things were done many years ago. There are many small wooden stilt houses not forgetting the narrow canals where you and your friends can take photos and keep as a memoir.
Climb the Sathorn Unique Tower
The Sathorn Unique Tower is an abandoned building located in the heart of Bangkok. The skyscraper dates back in the 19th centuries when it was built, but due to financial constraints, it was never completed. You might ask the reason to spend your time on an unfinished building but once you get there, you’ll know exactly why many people across the world love it.
The 49 storey building is not for the faint-hearted as it will give you a difficult climb. However, as soon as you get to the top, all your fatigue will be driven away by the breathtaking views of Bangkok and you’ll be glad you went there.
Cliff jumping in Chiang Mai
Do you love waters? If yes, there’s no better way of escaping the hot Asian sun while in Thailand than heading to Chiang Mai. In general, Chiang Mai is an old quarry filled with water for people like you to swim in. If you are not afraid of heights, there are different cliffs you can jump from with the biggest being 14 meters.
There’s nothing better in life than going on a vacation in a place full of beautiful attractions, exceptional eateries, rich history, and Thailand is simply the best. The place has everything for everyone and if planning to go there, the above is a list of what you can do for a memorable experience.
