A country that has it all, travelers to Thailand can experience a wealth of culture, a rich heritage, delicious gourmet meals, azure stretches of shallow, warm water, and some of the friendliest locals you’ll ever meet.
Begin your trip in the energetic metropolis of Bangkok. One of the busiest cities in the world, it literally never sleeps. This melding of traditional heritage and the birth of a contemporary Thailand is apparent in every spot you’ll visit.
Visit the Thai Labor Museum, a strong representation of the political and history of the country, and then move onto Siriraj Hospital, which has played an integral part in shaping Thailand’s social care and welfare. Finish your tour of the city by stopping in at the Bangkok Arts and Culture Center.
After the bustle of Bangkok, slow down in the northern node of Chiang Mai, a city known for its meditative retreats and stunning Buddhist temples. Wind down from a busy lifestyle with yoga or massage lessons, or hiking into the hills surrounding the city to discover isolated villages.
Sometimes known as the smaller Chiang Mai, Chaing Rai will also be on your list of places to see. Far removed from the throng of other Thai tourist hotspots, Chiang Rai is known for its intricate, beautiful handmade crafts and the evident traditional Thai culture you’ll witness everywhere you go.
Finish your sojourn through Thailand with on the beach in either Phuket or Koh Samui. The popular beaches of Phuket front busy side streets and markets and a hot nightlife scene, while the calm beaches of Koh Samui offer a respite from the busy side of travel.
