Top Things to  do in Thailand


Thailand is a great country to visit if you haven’t visited Southeast Asia before. It’s tourist friendly, has amazing food, has everything from vibrant cities to lazy beaches, and isn’t insanely expensive.


Visit an Island

Ko Samui and Koh Phangan are fairly popular but to really relax with less people around, check out the smaller islands like Koh Tao! 


Jin Thompson House

Jim Thompson was known as the “Silk King.” He built his beautiful mansion right in Bangkok and housed his tremendous art collection.


Chat with a Monk

In Chiang Mai, you can have a conversation with a monk at least three templesL Wat Suan Dok, Wat Sri Suphan and Wat Chedi Luang. 


Visit Wat Po

This is by far the biggest buddha in Bangkok, measuring 15 meters tall and 46 meters long. It is also covered in gold leaf.


Ride a Tuk-Tuk 

The easiest, and I’d argue the fastest way to get around a Thai city is by tuk-tuk. They're inexpensive and a fun way to see the city. 


Go to a Market

Thailand has some of the most popular and unique markets in the world. Visit their floating markets for amazing food. 


Get a Thai Massage

You can get a massage pretty much anywhere in a Thai city, but an experience you’re likely never to forget is receiving a massage at the Chiang Mai Women’s Correctional Institution Vocational Training Center.


Skip the Hotels

Staying at guesthouses instead of hotels allows you to experience and interact with local people who depend on your patronage to support their families.
