6 Best Things to Do in Thailand – Getting Bored Isn't an Option

With beautiful beaches and stunning temples getting bored in Thailand, Asia's number one tourist destination isn't an option. Here are 6 of the best things to do in Thailand.


Visit the Grand Palace

Located in the heart of Bangkok the Grand Palace is one of the most well known attractions in the country. The palace was home to the king, his court and everyone in the government for 150 years. Built on an area of 218,400m2 there are so many things to do and see. The huge walls that surround the palace were built in 1782 helped make it the popular attraction it is today. Visitors have to adhere to the strict dress code when visiting the palace as failure to comply will lead to refusal of entry.


Eat Street Food

Each city in Thailand offers a wide variety of street food, which is unique to that region. There a lot of things to do in Khon Kaen; visiting the Bueng Kaen Nakhon lake and engaging in leisure activities such as fishing, playing basketball or having a picnic. The area has no shortage of street food vendors for visitors to choose from even though the area also has an abundance of upscale hotels like AVANI Khon Kaen Hotel & Convention Centre.


Visit Khao Yai National Park

Khao Yai National Park while being the first national park which was built in Thailand still remains the third largest park in the country. Spanning an area of 2,168km2, the park comprises of grassland and rainforests which are inhabited by a large number of animals. While approximately 300 species of birds live in the park it is also home to elephants, bears, macaques, deer and gibbons. There are even a couple of waterfalls located in the park which can be easily accessed by a vehicle.


Visit Phang Nga Bay

The Phang Nga Bay houses around 40 small islands that shoot straight out of the sea. There are so many mangroves, caves and lagoons to see whilst you are here that you'll never have enough time to see them all. Because of its natural design and quiet sea, the bay is protected from natural disasters which most of the island have to face during the monsoon season, which means it'll never be bad to visit Phan Nga Bay. Using a local Thai Tour guide is advised as they can point out things that you would not want to miss while visiting the area.


Visit Doi Suthep

Located 12 kilometres away from Chiang Mai, Doi Suthep is a mountain that is 5400 feet high. Doi Suthep is famous amongst tourist for two things; the view of Chiang Mai from the top of the mountain and to visit the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, a temple dates back to the 13th century. There is also a large white elephant shrine at the temple which has a backstory that you can learn about when you visit the temple. You can either climb up the mountain or take the tram to the top but either way, come prepared to spend the whole day exploring the many things the temple has to offer.


Visit Railay Beach

Located in the south of Thailand in Krabi, Railay beach is not easily accessible by travelling through the mainland because of the large limestone cliffs that disconnect it from the rest of the country. The only way to get there is by boat but the picture-perfect beaches are well worth the extra effort. Since there are no roads that connect the island to the mainland, you're guaranteed a secluded vacation without the interruption of any vehicles. If you are into rock climbing this is the ideal place to be as some of the best rock climbing instructors in Thailand can be found here.
