Things to do in Thailand – Time to explore the vibrant island paradise

There is plenty to be enjoyed in Thailand, from the beach, people, food and the array of cultural landmarks. For those who are visiting this stunning nation for the first time, are likely to be in for a life-changing experience. Simply, strap in and prepare yourself!


Be sure to check out the Grand Palace

This is undoubtedly the most well-known site in Bangkok. It is located in the middle of the city. The monarch, his court, Thailand's whole government, as well as the Royal Mint, were all housed in the palace for 150 years.
There is so much to see and do with a total area of 218,400 square meters that you would never be dissatisfied. Huge walls were built around the palace and offices in 1782 to make it the tourist attraction it is today. Please note that the palace has a stringent dress code, so please dress appropriately or access will be denied.
If you are in a hotel in Khon Kaen such as the Avani Khon Kaen Hotel & Convention Centre be sure to inquire as to the appropriate dress code prior to your visit.


Get a relaxing Thai massage

Thai massages are well-known across the world; the form of massage is unusual in that it stretches as well as works on pressure points on the body. You'll feel energised and balanced at the end of the session. Every little town and city is sure to have a slew of massage parlours, and the costs are a fraction of what you'd pay back home.


The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market Awaits

The market is situated around 100km outside of Bangkok yet it is definitely worth the driving time.
This is Thailand's most famous and largest floating market; it is enormous! Everywhere you look, you'll see boats hawking a variety of delicacies and fruits along the canals. A trip to this market will provide you with a window into life in the area decades ago. The narrow canals and tiny wooden stilt houses provide a plethora of photo opportunities for people who enjoy photography.


The Sathorn Unique Tower

The 49-story building is not for the queasy, but the summit boasts some breath-taking views in Bangkok. The Thai people seem to believe the tower is haunted, and you might see why when you climb up. The 'Sathorn Unique', a huge, abandoned skyscraper in Bangkok, was never completed due to the global economic crisis. It's not an official major tourist destination, but paying the security officers at the bottom gets you in.


Enjoy Koh Phi Phi

Following the Leonardo DiCaprio classic 'The Beach,' as well as appearances in James Bond films, he shot into popularity. Koh Phi Phi is a beautiful island in the province of Krabi, Thailand. It is a must-see for everyone travelling to Thailand. No beachfront will ever be the same after seeing this incredibly lovely island. Because there are no roads on the island, you will have to walk quite a bit, but with so much going on between the two main beaches, you will never be far from the hubbub.
