3 Fantastic Destinations in Thailand

Bangkok

An article about Thailand wouldn’t be complete with out a mention of its fantastic capital, Bangkok. Famed for its chaotic atmosphere and hectic streets, the capital may not be for everyone but that’s not to say you should miss it however. Bangkok is home to several famous sites that it would be a shame to miss out on; the Grand Palace for example will dazzle with its bejewelled surfaces and the Wat Arun and Wat Po provide a glimpse into the city’s Buddhist roots.

The Floating Market

The classic Floating Market is the next up on our list, a little more relaxing than Bangkok. The market is best know for its appearance in the James Bond classic “The Man with the Golden Gun” and is located on the Damneon Saduak Canal. The market is set in a beautiful area and attracts thousands of visitors every year, it also gives an insight into how trading in Thailand was before the country became more modernised. Trading on the market is an experience in itself, with the interested customers having to hail down the market boats as they pass. The area around the canals also provides the opportunity to explore rural Thailand, with a number of excellent vineyards and orchards nearby.

Chiang Mai

The spiritual city known as Chiang Mai is a great alternative to the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, and an essential stop for anyone in the area. Chiang Mai gets its spiritual reputation due to the number of temples dotted around the city, that’s not all that’s on offer however; the city also has a great selection of craft shops, restaurants and is famed for its Thai massage. This mix of features means that city has a tranquil atmosphere, making it a great destination to kick back and relax in.
