1. Re: top 10 things to do in thailand?

Howdy, Well hard as ever to answer to be honest as each person or persons seem to come here for very different reasons. But somethings i would advise not to miss out on for a new experience rarely seen by people who come here perhaps would include

A trip to Ayutthaya as all the things they have there you likely will not see in many places in this world, OK wait for floods to recede of course.

A trip to Koh Kood, as Thailand's fourth largest island it is untouched and virtually unseen even by most Thai people! Seriously beautiful.

Chiang Rai and area, so many nice things to see, golden triangle and the city itself plus the climate at this time of year, oh yeah.

There are a whole host of other things i would do also, but how long have you got and what are you into?

6. Re: top 10 things to do in thailand?

Its very difficult to give a complete list of top tens of what to do.. some of the list already made are not bad.. and as already mentioned its different from person to person...

I would highly recommend to pass on Ayutthaya! and it made the list for 2 out 3 so far.... Yes there are some nice temples and signs of war between thai and khmers...(heads of buddha statues cut off) .. But there is a lot of temples in Thailand (and if temples are your thing... go to SIem Reap for that) Other than the temples I find Ayutthaya to have little to offer except a ton of karaoke bars (in thai and japanese) ...

other than that many of the things already listed are nice!

If you are a party freak ... a full moon party at Koh phangan might be fun...

Kanchanaburi is fun if you want to see some WW2 stuff and also has a nice national park in the area (Erawan I think...)

Bangkok of course (tons of things... one thing not mentioned yet is the chatuchak weekend market - which is an experience....)

Chiang Mai - Rai - lots of temples and lots of activities to do & see... also nice wibe in the area...

The beaches of Thailand... What do you want... A simple resort alone on a island or mass tourism or extreme luxury.. everything is possible..

Diving.. Thailand has several world class places to dive... Koh Tao is laidback diving island... But there are many more...

My strongest advise (which of course is very subjective!) is pass on Ayutthaya...

else have a great trip! Thailand is great!

PS would also take a BIG pass on Krabi...! (maybe not the whole province but Krabi Town and are around Krabi Town....) Phi Phi islands / koh Lanta etc. can be nice!

@ Ravenret

Hahaha! Its funny because its true!

Bed Supper Club is actually pretty nice! (regular night club/restaurant in Bangkok)

VIP theater is a must!

Soi Cowboy/NEP and Pattaya is maybe not for everybody but def a part of Thailand as well.. Pattaya is the worst though...
