Things to Do in Thailand

There are many things to do in Thailand – from visiting Bangkok to exploring Erawan National Park. I recommend avoiding the tourist traps, especially in the capital Bangkok. After your stay in Bangkok, you can explore other parts of Thailand, such as Khao Yai National Park and Phang Nga Bay. And if you are looking for an outrageous movie, watch The Hangover II! It’s funny, silly, and worth a watch!


The city of Bangkok is packed with sights, but perhaps the most famous is the Royal Palace. This former king’s residence is now the work place of the government. It is over 214,000 square meters, and a visit here will take several hours. Be sure to pay the entrance fee before entering the palace, and beware of scams that try to take advantage of tourists outside the grounds. The only way to get around Bangkok quickly is to take the sky train, which has air-conditioned carriages.

Erawan National Park

The northwest of Bangkok lies Erawan National Park, a natural treasure. The park is home to Erawan Falls and many caves, including Phartat Cave and the limestone Wang Bah Dan Cave. Erawan also boasts rock paintings and a population of elephants and deer. The park is crossed by trails, making it easy for visitors to get close to nature and to wildlife. To make your trip more memorable, take an elephant ride along the park’s trails.

Khao Yai National Park

The waterfalls in Khao Yai National Park in Thailand are truly incredible. While you’re not allowed to swim in the falls, they make for great photo opportunities. One of the most beautiful waterfalls in the park is Haew Narok, which was made famous by the Leonardo DiCaprio movie “The Beach.” You can’t swim in the park, so you must do your sightseeing on foot.

Koh Samui

If you’re planning to visit Koh Samui, Thailand, the best time to go is between April and August. While the weather is generally hot and dry, the island can get cool breezes. This means the island is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and other water-based activities. You can also take in the sights and sounds of local life during the summer months. While the rainy season is the wettest time of year in Thailand, Samui is still a perfect beach destination throughout the year.

Mae Hong Son

You can visit Mae Hong Son during both the low and high seasons. There are many festivals in the area during both seasons that bring people of all cultures together. During the low season, the weather is more pleasant, and the area is less crowded. However, you should know that the weather in Mae Hong Son can be unpredictable, so you may want to plan your trip accordingly. Listed below are the most popular festivals in Mae Hong Son.
