Places to explore in Thailand

Bangkok
Golden palaces, floating markets, majestic porcelain-laid spires…you've never seen a capital city quite like Bangkok. Visit Pratunam or Siam Square for premium shopping, then unwind in the European-style gardens of Dusit. Thon Buri is home to the awesome Wat Arun temple, and over in Phra Nakhon, you’ll find the Wat Pho temple of the Reclining Buddha. Savor mango sticky rice at a food stall before taking in the gilded splendor of the Grand Palace.

Phuket
Thailand’s largest island is an international magnet for beach lovers and serious divers, who enthusiastically submerge themselves in the Andaman Sea. Blue lagoons and salmon sunsets make for a dream-like atmosphere, and indeed, a vacation here can feel a bit surreal. Watersports are the most popular activities, though once you’ve had enough sun there’s still plenty to explore at the island’s aquariums, gardens, and Buddhist temples.

Ko Samui
Koh Samui was once a Thai fishing community, and that charming sensibility is still present today. Spending time in Bophut is a wonderful way to soak up local culture; the beachy village restaurants and pubs are perfect spots to experience the sunset. There aren’t many other places where you can bask in the camp of a cabaret show and the solemnity of a Buddhist temple. As far as the latter goes, Wat Plai Laem is a magnificent vision of gilded red rooftops and a massive spindly-armed statue of Guanyin.
Explore Ko Samui
Chiang Mai
You could spend your whole Chiang Mai vacation exploring the famous Night Bazaar. Once you’ve exhausted the art of the cheerful haggle, however, there’s plenty more to explore. The National Museum and Botanic Garden are great places to soak up some local culture and to breathe in the delicate fragrance of Thai orchids. In the city’s center, the remains of ancient walls embrace over 30 temples. Limber travelers can climb 300 stairs to Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, an ornate Buddhist temple in the hills.
Explore Chiang Mai
Krabi Town
The southern Thailand town of Krabi serves as base camp for exploring the province of the same name, a lush region of jungles, limestone cliffs and idyllic isles floating just offshore in the Andaman Sea. Buddhist shrines still used by local monks are tucked into the chambers of the town's top attraction, Tiger Cave. The riverside pier links travelers with ferries and longboats to the best scuba diving, rock climbing and white sand beaches on the coast.
Explore Krabi Town
Chiang Rai
Located about five hours from Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai is a community not to be missed. The area offers a variety of cooking classes, beautiful views, markets, resorts and restaurants. In addition, visitors can get a feel for true northern Thai culture during their visit.

Getting Around

Going around Thailand is easy because there are many forms of public transportation available. The government-owned bus company BKS has a stop in every province, and there are other private bus companies that offer the same fare rates. When riding a bus, you can choose from different accommodations: first class, second class, VIP, and express routes. Another interesting Thai public transport is the songthaew, an improvised truck fitted with benches on either side. These are known locally as “minibuses”. Another tourist favorite is the tuk-tuk, a three-wheeled motorcycle attached to a passenger carriage. Riding taxicabs is also a convenient way to get around Thai cities, especially in Chiang Mai.

Shopping, Dining and Night Life

Thailand is South East Asia’s shopper’s paradise. You can get cheap finds at the local stalls and at the public markets where you purchase fancy clothing, jewelry, fruits, street food, and handicrafts, at bargain prices. Almost every town in Bangkok has a night market. Chiang Mai is famous for its Night Bazaar. Weekend bazaars are also buzzing with antique dealers and fresh produce sellers. When shopping in Thai bazaars, you are always expected to haggle, as vendors tend to jack up their prices. Thai cuisine is a gastronomic delight. Food is cheap in open-air food courts that line the streets offering curries, shakes, fresh fruits, fish, and stir-fried noodles.
