Thailand is one of the most idyllic travel destinations in the world, from its crystal beaches to thriving nightlife. From sunbathing to exploring islands, dining to hiking, this destination has something to offer everyone. Make sure to do these five things before hopping on a plane back home.
Don’t leave Thailand without visiting the North. Start at the city of Chiang Mai, explore the beautiful rice fields in the middle and visit the lovely town of Pai. There are plenty of opportunities to combine exotic scenery with extreme sports. Here, you can zip-line in the forest with monkeys to keep you company and meet plenty of friendly Thai people along the way. A must-do for those who want to appreciate Thailand’s natural environment and have a moment of serenity.
You can’t visit Thailand without really experiencing Thai cuisine, particularly the national specialties of Thai curry, pad thai, & fried rice. Whether you’re getting it from a street-food stall (often more authentic) or a restaurant, meals are often extremely cheap and fantastic quality.
One of the top destinations in the world to get a diving license is Koh Tao. The visibility, vibrant ocean colors, and diverse sea life all make for a very special experience. On the main street, there is an abundance of diving schools providing courses that best fit your level of diving.
When visiting the islands of Thailand, you simply have to stay in a seaside bungalow. Going to sleep with the sound of the sea and waking up to an unforgettable sunrise will be worth every penny. Do some searching for a perfect beach location, and you will not be disappointed.
Once in Thailand, make time in your schedule to get to Koh Phangan in time for the Full Moon Party. This colorful party happens once a month and can’t be missed. We recommend you get there a few days before for pre-parties and to enjoy the calm on this beautiful island before the real fun begins. For the night itself, make sure you have neon clothing and body paint, gather some good company and be ready to enjoy the evening ahead of you.
