Thailand is a destination that really does offer something for everyone. Whether it’s exploring the buzzing city of Bangkok, absorbing the stunning countryside in the Golden Triangle, shopping till you drop in the never-ending markets, or scuba diving and lazing on the sand on some of the most gorgeous islands in the world – Thailand has it all.

When many people think of holidays to Thailand, one of the first images that comes to mind is beautiful sandy, sun-soaked beaches. With thousands of miles of coast, Thailand offers an incredible array of beaches, from popular tourist spots packed with bars, hotels, and nightlife, to remote spots where you can escape just about everything. But the Land of Smiles offers so much more, from stunning Thailand tourist attractions to delicious food and glimpses into a diverse and fascinating culture.

Things to do in Thailand

Best things to see and do in Thailand

Bangkok, also called the Big Mango, is a vibrant city teeming with nightlife and shopping opportunities. You can take a cruise along the rejuvenated Chao Phraya River and explore the historic area, including the Grand Palace, which is one of the most amazing things to do in Thailand. It’s considered a sacred place, so make sure you are dressed appropriately with knees and shoulders covered.

The north of the country also offers stunning experiences. The ancient Lanna Kingdom capital now known as Chiang Mai is a delightful city with an attractive night market for shopping and foot massages. As you move around, you will see the old city walls for a glimpse into Thailand’s history. Further north, you can visit Chiang Rai and venture into the Golden Triangle where the borders of Laos, Myanmar and Thailand meet. Once known for growing opium poppies, today there are plenty of facilities for tourists to enjoy, and you can even venture onto a boat for a trip along the Mekong to get a better look at Thailand’s neighbouring countries.

If you love elephants, there are plenty of opportunities to visit an ethical elephant sanctuary and even ride one of these majestic beasts. If you enjoy Second World War history, you might need to go to Kanchanaburi where the notorious Death Railway was built by prisoners of war.

Another one of the incredible things to do in Thailand is to venture south and explore some of the country’s beautiful islands. Large islands with plenty of hotels and nightlife include Phuket and Koh Samui. Krabi is a great jumping-off point for visiting smaller islands or even heading to a legendary Full Moon party on Koh Phangan. You may have seen Thai islands featured in films such as The Man With the Golden Gun, and you can visit ‘James Bond island’ too.
