There are very few destinations in South-East Asia tend to attract as much crowd as Thailand does. From pristine riversides, grand palaces, vibrant gardens or awe-inspiring temples, the ‘land of smiles’ has everything to offer you. But very few visitors seem to know that the real treasure of the country remains hidden beneath its off-beaten places of interest.
The Royal Thailand
Exploring the regal Thailand while pampering yourself in exotic voyages can make your holidays a truly rewarding one! In Bangkok, the capital, you can visit the Grand Palace. The revered king of Thailand stayed here permanently until 1925. However, the royal family still uses the palace for conducting ceremonial activities. The Grand Palace is also the home to the wonder-evoking Emerald Buddha. It is carved from pure jade stone. Very few visitors seem to know about the nearby Dusit Palace Park, which was constructed under the patronage of King Chulalongkorn, or Rama V, whose life inspired the famous book and movie, “The King And I”. The palace exhibits a fine amalgamation of Thai and British architecture. The Royal Thai Elephant Museum is another point of interest that houses the Royal White Elephants.
The Nature’s Splendor
A number of tourists rank Bangkok and Chiangmai as their favorite Thai cities. However, both of these cities have more than vibrant nightclubs and shopping centers to keep you going. You can ask your tour operator to arrange for a cultural walk across the century-old alleys and marketplaces. And do not forget trying the signature Thai street foods! These apart, the cities offer an unprecedented exploration of Thai nature. Go for hiking on Khao Yai, or befriend elephants at the Rescue Park. Your guide is more than happy to talk about local wildlife folklores and tales. Also, you can indulge yourself under swaying palm trees, jump into pristine, crystal clear waters. If you want to see beyond the sun, sea and sand, then you can give the islands of Southern Thailand a try! Soak yourself in the sunshine, enjoy the romantic dinner and explore what tropical paradises are all about!
Thailand For Family Vacation
Thailand is not all about the nature, temples, historical marvels and swanky bars. It can also endow you with a blissful family tour involving bonding, adventure and fun. Your tour operator can arrange for family activities like a canal adventure, elephant ride or cooking class. You can also cherish an unforgettable overnight stay on a floating bank.
The Night Life
No trip to Thailand is complete without having a slice of the nightlife in the cocktail bars. Both Bangkok and Phuket have distinct partying hotspots. A part of your exotic voyages in Thailand involves an intercontinental crowd of fun-loving revelers. Make the most from the live bands, international DJs, clubs, discos, go-go bars, cabaret shows and what not! And when you are thirsty, you will not have to find a fitting pub to get your drink. The main thing is, it is found very reasonably. And you will find the drink extremely well prepared. Is there anything that you could have asked for?
