Wanna be on ”The Beach”? After the movie ”The Beach” with Leonardo DiCaprio tourism in Thailand and its emerald beaches just exploded. I just came back from my trip to Thailand and can’t wait to offer you my selection of great, once in a lifetime experiences absolutely not to miss out there! Keep reading….
Eating insects in Thailand: after experiencing Bangkok’s hectic nightlife at Khaosan Road you will be brave enough to try some local delights: fried insects. That’s the place and the moment to order some. Hope you’ll have enough courage to order scorpions…
Stay overnight in a floating bungalow in Khao Sok National Park. Limestone cliffs, monkeys and if you are lucky enough you can see the biggest flower in the world – rafflesia. Khao Sok National Park is the perfect place to relax, do some kayaking and monkey spotting.
Thong Sala or food market discovery in Ko Phangan. Food is heavenly delicious in Asia and visiting a food market is a real culinary and cultural adventure. I went twice to Thong Sala in Ko Phangan and could not resist yummy noodles, sea fruit, coconut ice cream, mango sticky rice and banana pancakes…The place to be especially during the night time.
Baan Thai elephant trekking: when in Thailand, go and see some elephants. I visited Baan Tai elephants – a privately owned mini-jungle currently occupied by four elephants. The highlight of my Thailand trip! I feed them, washed them and went for a walk with the elephants….and the best of it is that nobody is allowed to ride them! Highly recommend that!
Thai massage: a Thai massage is not just a massage… it’s body and mind relaxing heaven….After a long-flight and horrible jet-leg…treat yourself and relax…
Overnight train: if you plan to travel around Thailand, take at least once an overnight train. This is the cheapest option to travel there. The trains are clean, safe and comfortable enough.
Snorkeling and scuba diving: if you never tried snorkeling or scuba diving, you have a great opportunity to do that in Thailand. Wherever you go, endless opportunities to discover the colorful marine life will be offered to you. I signed up for a discovery scuba diving class and even saw a shark!
Monkeys: if you want to spot monkeys, go to monkey beach! Monkey beach is in Phi Phi islands and there are organized tours on a regular basis. But safety first, monkeys are wild animals and they can bite, swim and dive! Make a selfie, but don’t bother them too much…
Enjoyed my Thailand tips! If so, share and care! Thanks for reading!
