Do You Want to Visit Thailand this Year? Here are 20 Things to do in Thailand

Published

Thailand is currently trending as a bucket list country to visit from Nigeria and I figured curating a list of things to do in Thailand would help future travelers a whole lot in narrowing down the adventures they decide on when they visit the country. From the outdoorsy traveler to the party animal, I’ve got you covered thanks to some of the suggestions I gathered from travelers that have also visited the beautiful country.

Most of us think about beaches when we think of Thailand, but Thailand has Jungle too and not just in the North!

Located in Southern Thailand in is Khao Sok National Park. A thick jungle with a man made lake which makes for a great day trip, and overnight stay, to see another part of Thailand.

On a Day Trip to Khao Sok you start off on a traditional Thai fish tail boat speeding along the lake with huge limestone cliffs surrounding you. After a swim to cool down in a secluded section of the lake that also has huts to stay in overnight if you’d prefer to do this, you’ll continue further into the Jungle in search of insects, monkeys and other animals before adventuring through a cave. This is not for the faint hearted but it is a lot of fun! The day will end by sailing back across the lake before returning to your accommodation.

This is a really fun and unique part of Thailand that is not as crowded as many other parts of the Country!’

Thailand is a south-east Asian country that’s well known for its crystal blue waters. What better way to experience this than being submerged for up to one hour.

The dark blue waters surrounding Phi Phi island are renowned as some of the best diving that Thailand has to offer. Phi Phi Island is home to a diverse amount of marine life that make diving here unforgettable. Along with plenty of clusters of coral and caves to explore.

Whether you’re a seasoned diver looking for their next spot under the water to explore, or you’re new and looking to get certified, Phi Phi island is a divers paradise.

I went to Chiang Mai with the sole intention of visiting an elephant sanctuary, which I did, and only after reaching there found out about the Art in Paradise.

Initially I didn’t think it was worth going but I’m so glad I went. Art in Paradise in Chiang Mai is not huge but it provides for a 2-hour fun time for both children and adults (in particular those adults who miss their childhood times and need to compensate it somehow).

All the different parts of this 3D Museum offer lots of opportunities for creativity in taking pictures that look real (pay attention to the instructions to get the best shot but feel free to do as you please as well).

A bit of friendly advice, please obey the rules and if it says “No shoes” it really means no shoes. It is for the benefit of all visitors.

While surfing the Net for things to do in Krabi, I found out there’s an expat Australian family living in Ao Nang and running the business of taking tourists on the sunset cruise experience. The opportunity I would never miss! The cruise started at 2 pm while during the daylight we sailed to the islands in front of Railay for snorkeling, swimming, jumping off the boat or just relaxing on a teak deck. All gear was provided including the use of kayaks and paddleboats. You could literally do as much as you like or as little.

The journey ended with sailing back towards the Railay Peninsular whilst watching the sunset over the sea and enjoying the yummiest Thai buffet. The final leg of the trip was a stop in the waters next to Pranang beach for adventurous people who wanted to experience swimming in the bio-luminescence in the dark- something you don’t get to see often!

I can honestly say that’s one of the best experiences we’ve had in Asia thanks to the crew for making the trip accommodating and fun for every one of us.

A quick day trip from Bangkok is Ayutthaya, a site with many beautiful and unique temples and ruins. Perhaps the best way to see them all in a day is to rent a bike to take you around the city. Bikes can be rented for less than $10 a day, and the conditions are great; the streets are wide and uncongested, so you can have a leisurely bike ride around while taking in the different ruins sites. Make sure to plan out your route; Wat Chaiwatthanaram, Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, and Wat Mahathat are some of the stops you won’t want to miss.
