Thailand is probably one of the most beautiful places in the world, full to the brim with culture, religion and amazing scenery. There is so much on offer that sometimes it’s a struggle to find out which are the most charming attractions to visit. Below is a list compiled of just some the amazing places and locations that Thailand has. Whether you’re looking for culture or delicious food, then this list should help you on your way. And it’s not just the places that are amazing; along the way you’ll meet some incredible locals who will help ease you through your trip.
With so much to see in Thailand, from temples to pagodas, where do you even begin? A good start would be the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Ban Chiang. Here, you’ll get an amazing example of Thailand’s fruitful and interesting cultural past, so it’s not just a visit to a stunning place, but you’ll also come away with some extra knowledge too.
The Pattaya Sanctuary is another great place to visit to delve into Thailand’s past. The Sanctuary of Truth allows tourists to take a step into the temple and take in the breath-taking view of the ocean. If you enjoy the temple that much, you can even stay in the area. Pattaya has a wide range of hotels, which are in travelling distance of the temple. That’s not the only entertainment however. You can also watch traditional Thai dancing, which is an experience not to be missed. Another experience not to be missed is the Floating Market of Pattaya, an amazing place to pick up presents or just to marvel at the spectacle.
Islands and Beaches
You can’t really escape Thailand’s culture and heritage, but if you’re looking for something a little more relaxing, then take a trip to any one of Thailand’s beaches or islands. Easily accessible by boat, islands, beaches and palaces, such as Koh Tao, Phang Nga Bay, Similan Islands and Ko Phi Phi, are the perfect place to put your worries and stresses to bed and really enjoy the beauty of Thailand. They’re especially good for honeymoons and unwinding from the pre-wedding stress! Thailand won’t put too much of a strain on your wedding budget either.
Ko Ngai is one of the most beautiful beaches in Thailand. Long stretches of white sand and beautiful water allow this beach to prevail above the rest. The tourist levels here are high, however, so if you’re looking for someone a bit quieter, then Ko Ngai may not be for you. It is great for people watching though and there are plenty of other activities to be doing, if lying around on the sand isn’t for you.
Thailand is well known for its culture and colourful celebrations. Why not take a visit to Thailand in November? Here you can experience some of the best festivals that the country has on offer, celebrating the end of the rainy season. Full of dancing and food, it’s definitely not a time to miss and the experiences you encounter will last a life time.
