- The Temple of the Emerald Buddha: Located right next to the Grand Palace, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha is one of the popular tourist places in Bangkok use to discover by a lot of tourists. Wat Phra Kaeo is the place you’ll find the stunning statue of Emerald Buddha. Visited by locals and a lot of tourists, the temple has sacred rituals that will serve up a genuine slice of Thai life for you. In case, if you want to explore more, there are City Pillar and National Gallery, Wat Pho and the National Museum, just a few walks away.
- Crossroads Khaosan Road: Fancy bars, artisans, street vendors and restaurants are there to make your journey a memorable one. If you have enough time, you can also visit Phr A-Thit road that allows you capture beautiful moments of a lifetime.
- Chatuchak Weekend Market: If you love to bargain, then Chatuchak Weekend Market is for you. Here you’ll find unseen handicrafts, superb home decorations and bargain apparels that will make you look twice. In case, if you want to get to the stuff you like, get the Nancy Chandler Map for the market.
- Khon Theatre Performances: If you want to go back to 15th century Siam with magnificent masked dances (Khon) choreographed to perfection, the place is for you. Discover different forms of dance at the Sala Charlermkrung Royal Theatre where you’ll need to get to. Most of these dances are based on the Ramayana but unlike any rendition of Ramayana you’ve ever seen before. All the performances are grand and magnificent that will let you escape in a different world.
- Visit Pak Khlong Talat and Yaowarat: If you love to experience natural beauty then make sure you visit Pak Khlong Talat. I would recommend you go to this place on the last day of your journey. You can actually carry flowers back home to your home special flower boxes. However, if you’re done with floral fragrances, you can visit Thai China Town of Yaowarat in order to do more street shopping. Thereafter, relax by the Chao Phraya River and you’ll feel refresh to enter Thai nightlife.
- The Canals of Bangkok: Personally, the canals made me remind of the movie, the Pirates of the Caribbean’. But, you don’t need to worry as you won’t get robbed journeying the canals of Bangkok. All of these canals will lead you to Chow Phraya River. I’d suggest you board a river taxi to Nonthaburi and charter your very own long-tail boat to Khlong Om in order to visit Mon Artisans for beautiful sandstone sculptures.
- Hua Hin: Love beaches, then just head to Hua Hin for a golf game at the white sandy beach or dip into azure blue waters. You might have seen people enjoying horse-riding on the beach. Hua Hin is the place that can offer you an amazing horse-riding experience like never before.
- Pai: It is nothing but a little pastoral town hidden in the northern mountains that allow you experience natural beauty at its best. At this place there are mountain trails you wish will never end. In case, if you plan to return back to civilization, there’s always mountain biking and whitewater rafting to ignite the fire in you.
- Muay Thai Kick Boxing: You can get grasp proper knowledge on self-defence, secret kickboxing moves, or just watch it for some entertainment. Thai kickboxing resorts, clubs and training camps have come up on the beaches of Ko Pha-ngan, Pattaya and Phuket. Thereafter, you’ll be able to catch up on a kickboxing match anywhere in the country.
- Biking Tour: Are you tired of regular drive-off sightseeing tours? If yes, then quickly call your nearest bike tour company, choose a route, get a bike, hop on, and get going. On my visit, I did biking to a few the world heritage sites, like the remnants of Ayutthaya and the ruins of Sukhothai Historical Park.
