Top things to do in Thailand – Don’t miss out!

There are so many things you can do in Thailand, but how do you decide which ones are an absolute MUST? We’ve narrowed it down to 5 to make it easier for you.

1

Bang Kachao

Bang Kachao is known as Bangkok’s Green Lung and with a good reason! Bang Kachao is a manmade island that is formed around the bend of Chao Phraya River and a canal in the western end. Located south of Bangkok, the island covers around 16 sq kms. A bike trail carved through Bang Kachao is ideal for tourists who wish to travel through the rugged and beautiful landscapes as its serves as the perfect escape from the bustling activity of life in the city. Escape here to get some fresh air and your daily dose of calm and soothing atmosphere. Go on a bike tour through the oasis of greenery for a relaxing day out in the city! This area is protected by the government as it serves as an oasis in the midst of a crowded city. Two of the most important places to visit in Bang Kachao is the Nakhon Si Khuean Khan Botanical Park and the Floating Market known as Bang Talad Nam Peung, where you can find loads of local food, souvenirs and clothing stalls.

Shop till you drop

Bangkok is most famous for its shopping malls, whether you want to visit the towering structures located in the city or cruise through the river and shopping the local way. There are literally, countless number of shopping destinations you could head to, especially if you’re looking for some retail therapy or you need to buy a bunch of souvenirs to take back home at the end of your holiday to Thailand. Thailand is best known for the floating markets which can be accessed via long tail traditional boats that cruise through the rivers. You’ll be able to shop for fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and other items like clothes, souvenirs and local handicrafts. If you’re looking to do some indoor shopping, then places like Central World, Siam Paragon and Siam Center are some of the more popular places that tourists head to.

King cobras are kept as unusual pets in almost every household as it is a great tourist attraction with many locals offering tourists a chance to see snake dances and some other performances. If you’re looking for a place to stay that is well away from snakes and other creepy crawlies, AVANI Khon Kaen Hotel & Convention Center would serve as a great option amongst a variety of other properties in the city.
