It is an undeniable fact that there is no better place to let your hair down and party your heart out than ‘The Kingdom of Thailand’. With breath-taking beaches, magnificent temples, amazing street-food, and ultra-happening nightlife, Thailand is a country that never disappoints! However, there’s a lot more to do in the ‘land of smiles’ than just chilling and partying.
For the travelers who seek adventure and prefer ‘the road less traveled by’, here are some exhilarating, off-the-track activities to explore in Thailand
The reason why we are calling this ordinary grocery market ‘crazy’ is that a train literally runs right through this market! That’s right, this small street market is located on the Maeklong Railway Tracks. The market disassembles within seconds as the train approaches the horizon, with canopies falling down and vendors moving hither and thither with all their belongings to make way for the train. What’s amazing about this market is that it rises back to business just minutes after the train passes by, as if nothing happened at all!
A visit to Thailand is never complete without having the perfect meal of tom yum, chicken satay and pad-thai! However, what happens in Thailand doesn’t need to stay in Thailand. Take home the distinct, strong flavors of the aromatic Thai-curries by taking a Thai-cooking class while you stay. Shop for the ingredients at the local market, learn what goes in the ‘oh-so-delicious’ Thai-food and make it for yourself with the help of local chefs. After all, there is no better souvenir, right?
An Amulet market is not an ordinary market selling clothes and groceries; it is a fascinating place where you can shop for happiness, health, wealth and luck! With thousands of Buddhist charms, totems, talismans, and traditional medicines, this market is full of intriguing artifacts to satisfy your curiosity. Whether you are a believer of the ‘good’ and the ‘evil’, or you are just a wanderer seeking new experiences (and souvenirs), this market is worth a visit.
The beauty of Thailand is not limited to the picturesque beaches. Move a little up north towards Chiang Rai and enjoy the scenic beauty of mountains and rivers with the local tribes of Thailand. Immerse into their culture, share their cuisine and learn their lifestyles by living in huts as you trek along. Or perhaps go on a traditional long-tail boat riding with the locals to the Golden Triangle, with awe-striking images on your way.
A trip to Thailand isn’t really a trip if you don’t go island-hopping on a boat. The lesser-known Morakot Cave at Ko Muk island is one destination that must be on your list. Swimming (or kayaking) through long & dark tunnel towards the small speck of light, with the sound of waves splashing against the rocks, is quite exhilarating. However, nothing is as astounding as the view on the other side. A turquoise blue lagoon with crystal clear water, merging into white sand with greenery-clad cliffs on either side - it is definitely a sight to behold.
Leave the land of smiles with stories that are a little different than the rest. Have fun!
