Thailand - The Land of Smiles
Thailand’s tropical beaches, glittering temples, radiate a very friendly, exotic, cultured, historic and fun loving golden hue that is simply irresistible. Every step in Thailand has something new and different to offer, maybe a different taste, a different smell, maybe the humility, warmth, and friendliness of the locals, maybe the spiritual peace. You will fall in love with Thailand’s religious ceremonies, cultural celebrations, charming people, beautiful beaches and its natural beauty. Thailand tourist attractions are very diverse and every destination offers a very memorable and rewarding experience in its own unique way. Whatever it is that you are looking for right from spirituality to peace, food to fetish, chaos to charisma, beaches to beauty, Thailand has it all.
In my experience, it is very difficult to cover all the Thailand tourist attractions in one visit. So I chose the most spoken about Bangkok, Pattaya, and Phuket for my first ever trip to Thailand which was nothing less than fulfilling in terms of freedom, food, and fun.
Bangkok is Thailand’s capital city. Bangkok is a fascinating, incredible and exciting city to visit. Bangkok never goes to sleep; every hour of the day has something to offer. Bangkok is famous for its vibrant street life and ornate shrines. Bangkok has its contrasts. You will find neon-lit strips of sleaze sharing space with gold-spired Buddhist temples, high-flying restaurants mingle very well with the street food carts, it offers a both modern mega-malls and the 200-year-old village homes. Bangkok’s contradictions give it its multifaceted personality. Bangkok is simply smiling inducing.
Some of the top Thailand tourist attractions belong to Bangkok. Some of my favorites would include; Wat Pho, Grand Palace, WatArun, WatTraimit-Temple of the Golden Buddha, Giant Swing, WatSuhat, Chatuchak Market, Wang Na Palace and National Museum, DamnoenSaduak Market, Khao San Road,Lumpini Park, Jim Thompson House, Street food stalls and Terminal 21
If you are a beach lover then Pattaya is your heaven. Pattaya is always fun and switched on. It is one of the most vibrant coastal cities that you will ever come across. It is a convenient destination for someone who loves sand sun and sea. Pattaya offers a long list of things to do. Pattaya Beach is famous for its fun water sports. Some of the mind-blowing water sports are Scuba Diving, Jet Skiing, Banana Boat, Wake boarding, Parasailing, Kite surfing, windsurfing, water skiing, snorkeling, white water rafting and underwater walk.
