Thailand, the home of our authentic cuisine, is Asia’s most popular holiday destination and for very good reason.
With World Tourism Day taking place this month, now seems like the perfect time to share some of our favourite Thai tourist destinations and attractions with all of you.
The famous floating markets just outside Bangkok are perhaps the most fun and interesting way to experience all the unique foods and flavours that Thailand has to offer. From fresh fruit to all kinds of sweets, there’s plenty to enjoy no matter what your tastes. Just be sure to get an early start as these markets tend to take place in the morning.
Sukhothai Historical Park
This park covers the ruins of the ancient Sukhotai Kingdom. Whether you love grand historical monuments or awe-inspiring natural scenery, this place has it all. With plenty of crumbling structures, ancient Buddha statues and information boards to satisfy the history buffs, this park is perfect for a day out.
Bangkok Grand Palace
The Grand Palace is among the most famous landmarks in all of Thailand, if not the most famous of them all, and is absolutely breathtaking to behold. Construction of the palace began in 1782 and took just two years to complete. Although Thai royalty no longer lives at the palace, it is still used for official events.
Chatuchak Weekend Market
Also known as the JJ Market, Bangkok’s Chatuchak Weekend Market is thought to be one of the largest weekend markets in the world, with more than 8,000 stalls! Goods on offer include clothes, furniture and antiques. And, of course, there’s plenty of delicious Thai food available, as well as musical and dancing performers to keep tourists and locals alike entertained. If you’re looking to pick up a souvenir or gift for someone back home, this is the place to go.
