Things to do in Thailand
Your list of things to do in Thailand will be long, so plan well. For history lovers, Chiang Mai's Wat Phra and Doi Suthep temples are breathtaking even before you've explored Bangkok's ornate Grand Palace, and the tremendous reclining Buddha in What Pho.
Grand Palace – Bangkok
Long since disused as a royal household, the palace is now mostly used to host important ceremonies and events. Visitors must adhere to the dress code that stipulates long pants, sleeves, and no bare feet (that includes thongs/sandals).
The Grand Palace is a treat for photographers and architecture enthusiasts or anyone who enjoys aesthetic grandeur.
Railay Beach – Railay Peninsula
The distinctive limestone outcrops and adjacent jungle make the place seem like a digitally enhanced paradise. Activities include rock climbing, snorkelling, and good old fashioned lazing on the beach. A small peninsula between Krabi and Ao Nang, only accessible by boat, Railay is worth visiting just to be sure it exists.
Elephant Nature Park – Mae Taeng
Visitors can volunteer or simply participate in a day visit as they learn about the plight of the species and how to care for them. Just 60 kilometres from Chiang Mai City, you can witness the gentle giants up close for an unforgettable experience.
Sanctuary of Truth – Pattaya
It contains four wings representing Thai, Khmer, Chinese, and Indian iconography. Far from being an ancient structure, however, it was conceived by local millionaire Lek Viriyaphant in 1981. Despite Viriyaphant’s death in 2000, aged 86, development will continue until scheduled completion in 2050.
Great things are achieved when people start projects they know cannot be finished in their lifetime. Whether it’s a sacred temple or merely the plaything of an eccentric businessman, the Sanctuary of Truth has earned its reputation as a top tourist attraction
Wat Phra That Doi Suthep – Chiang Mai
Wat Phra That Soi Suthep was established as a monastery in 1383. Today it remains a shrine of great religious significance and solace making for a moving experience, regardless of your spiritual leanings.
