By Christa Rolls of Expedition Wildlife: The Grand Palace is easily one of the most popular destinations in Bangkok, and the stunning complex of buildings, temples, and colonnades with ornate art and architecture is worth a visit. The Palace was the official residence of Siam and Thai royalty dating back to the 1700’s, and its beauty is jaw-dropping. Be sure to arrive early in the morning to beat the crowds, and bring lots of water along with you. Covering of shoulders and knees is also required for entry.

You’re in the vicinity of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Don’t leave without going on a safari tour of the National Park that covers more than 2,000 square kilometers of forest and grassland. Most of the safari tours include a trek through the forest followed by a drive-through, in search of the diverse wildlife. When night falls, go on an hour-long night tour to spot the nocturnal ones on open-sided trucks. There are specific thematic tours such as bird-watching tours, field herping tours and photo tours. Choose from half day to 4 .....days tours to fit into your itinerary and see as many of the jungle inhabitants as possible. With some luck, you may spot wild elephants.

By Eloise of My Favourite Escapes: Visiting Wat Pho is one of the most popular things to do in Bangkok. Only a few minutes’ walk away from the famous Grand Palace, Bangkok’s largest temple is on every Bangkok itinerary. All tourists want to see the impressive 46-meter long reclining Buddha. The rest of the temple is a lot more serene and quiet, yet fascinating. It’s also known to be the birthplace of traditional massage, so why not try it there?

If the sounds of the tuk-tuks and the air pollution are getting to you, then get yourself to Lumphini Park. Seriously, this place is a breath of fresh air compared to the hustle and bustle of the busy city. A public park with an abundance of grassed areas, trees, shade and wildlife, it’s the perfect place to head to if you’re needing to find some zen. You’ll see plenty of running clubs, Tai chi enthusiasts and school groups while you’re here, but be on the lookout for the monitor lizards .....that roam freely! There’s also some pretty cool free gym equipment on offer to promote a healthy lifestyle, but my favourite is the old school muscle/body building gym. For 50 THB, you can do a workout with some of the heaviest, but oldest pieces of gym equipment you’ve ever seen. Show less

As I already mentioned, we hired a car from Chiang Mai and drove up the highway, stopping off at the gorgeous Doi Chaang Coffee House along the way for breakfast and a real flat white. Hiring a car was a lot simpler than expected, once we found the right place. A lot of places wanted to hold our passport (which I don’t like), but Queen Bee Travel Service on the moat near Ratmakka Road were only too happy to rent us a four-wheel drive on a cash deposit and a .....photocopy of my international driving permit. The vehicle was a few years old, but it did the job. Driving out of Chiang Mai can be a little daunting the first time you try, but as long as you’ve thought through your exit plan and you stay calm (with scooters and tuk tuks whizzing past everywhere) you simply drive north from the travel service and drive over the Narawat Bridge and you’re on the highway north to Chiang Rai. The drive itself is about two and a half hours, but allow at least a half hour for stops. You’ll also likely find yourself in a queue or two where the police are checking for smugglers, but they mostly wave you through once they see you’re a foreigner. Show less

It pales in comparison to the massive Sunday/Saturday Night Markets and Night Bazaar of Chiang Mai, but the night bazaar here is still a great spot to grab some Chiang Rai-specific souvenirs. One of the fun things we like to do is send postcards to family and friends wherever we travel. So, naturally, we bought a couple here and were able to send them off directly from the store we purchased them.

After the market we made our way down to Siam Paragon mall which is one of the newer big malls in town.  There wasn’t much to shop around for as it was almost purely brand names so we just went down to the basement floor to eat in the food court.  We had some fried fish (Candie’s recommendation) and picked up some other goodies too.

Many people know Wat Rong Khun only as the White Temple. You can find this amazing piece of architecture in Chiang Rai. You will find the city of Chiang Rai in the north part of Thailand. Local artist Chalermchai Kositpipat is responsible for this piece of art and renovated the remains of the old Wat Rong Khun. The entire renovation is funded by the artist himself. Investors he does not need. He does however accept donations, but these are not to be higher than THB 10,000. The temple has its doors open .....since 1997 but is far from being finished. According to Mr. Kositpipat’s students, the temple should be finished by the end of 2070. By the time the temple is finished, the compound should consist of nine buildings, which includes the Golden Building. Show less

Geography, in general, is sexy, and I cannot get enough of natural beauty. The mountains here — so long as it is not burning season when they are cloaked by a yellow-gray haze — are stunning. Crisp and green during rainy season, thick clouds hanging over them as monsoons roll into town. Love.

By Natalie Deduck of  Love and Road: A trip to Bangkok must have a visit to a floating market and you can choose to visit the famous ones or go local. Klong Lad Mayom is located at Bangkok outskirts and it’s open only on weekends. You’ll need a taxi or a tour guide to take you there, as it is quite far from public transportation and can be tricky to find the location. There you’ll find many shops and boats selling from fruits & veggies to delicious Thai dishes. For a small .....fee, you can go on a boat trip along the canals, passing by a local temple, an orchid farm, and old Thai houses. If it’s your first time in Bangkok I would recommend go to a busy floating market and to Klong Lad Mayom so you can spot the difference and have both experiences. Show less

By Julianna Barnaby of The Discoveries Of: Wat Arun Ratchawararam (Wat Arun for short) is one of the must-see spots in Bangkok. This gorgeous temple is set in a beautiful location on the Chao Phraya River and is one of my favourite spots in Thailand. The temple, whose name translates as The Temple of the Dawn is pretty striking – a series of white structures decorated with intricate tiling in a number of colours. Get there early if you can, it looks absolutely spectacular in the first light of the day.

Elephant Nature Park was the first to create a new form of elephant tourism. One where tourists can come to learn about and observe elephants in their natural habitat. A place where they can participate in elephant care without forcing the elephants to carry them through the jungle or perform tricks. At Elephant Nature Park there is no riding, jungle trekking, performing, or bathing of the elephants. What you get here is the opportunity to walk around and get up close and personal with all the elephants in the park. You’ll .....learn about their history and how they came to live at Elephant Nature Park. You also get to hand feed some of the elephants bananas and watermelons, and, of course, take as many photos of these beautiful animals as you want. Elephant Nature Park is, first and foremost, a rescue and retirement center for working elephants. Most of the elephants who now call the park home were abused during their working life, and many arrive at the park with severe physical and mental injuries. Show less

Part of the fun in exploring Chinatown is to check out all the amazing tropical fruits, local street foods and snacks and cheap fun souvenirs that you can find along the way. It’s fun to walk around the various markets and photograph the colourful street scenes like sidewalk barbers, beauticians and gold shops.

If you love to explore nature, visit Thailand’s Doi Inthanon National Park – also known as “The Roof of Thailand”. Among all the places I’ve visited in Chiang Mai, this is the one that I loved most. It’s definitely the highlight of my trip! 😀 The main attractions of the park are the summit of Doi Inthanon for its spectacular views, several waterfalls, a few trails and the two chedis (Buddhist stupas) dedicated to the King and Queen’s 60th birthday anniversaries.

This is more for the focal point of the Golden Triangle, not the vast region itself (most Chiang Rai attractions are located within the Golden Triangle). The focal point is where the three countries; Thailand, Laos and Myanmar, come together and a short distance further finds the Yunnan region of China. So the area is no doubt geographically interesting but it also has a few other attractions to make the journey worthwhile. There are many impressive temples and monuments along the riverside and Mekong river excursions travel to the small .....island of Don Sao in Laos (no Visa etc required). Also the Hall of Opium (museum) which retraces of the history of the notorious drug trafficking which took place in this region. For some great views of views climb to the hillside temples which overlook the meeting of the Mekhong and the Ruak Rivers which split the three countries.    Show less

One thing I couldn’t cut off my list of historical sites was Wat Chedi Luang. This ancient Buddhist temple was first built in the late 1300s and is unlike any other temple I’ve seen in Thailand. Wat Chedi Luang was once home to Thailand’s most sacred religious relic, the Emerald Buddha, which is now housed in Wat Pra Kaew, next to the Grand Palace in Bangkok. The once 80-meter tall stone temple was severely damaged during an earthquake in 1545 and lost almost half of its height. Restoration works to the .....temple were completed in the 1990s, but it’s still possible to see areas where large sections of stone came crashing down the temple’s angled exterior. Show less

There is no fee to enter the Historical Park; however most of the sites charge a small fee of around 50 baht or less. It is also important to remember that although these are ruined sites they are still seen as sacred monuments to Buddhists, therefore please remain respectful, never climb on a Buddha statue, and please follow the dress code of covering shoulders and wearing long pants or skirts. Ayutthaya Historical Park is a lovely day out from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok; just remember to bring plenty of water, .....a hat and sunscreen as the heat can be very intense especially during the day.

The local life in this relatively untouched region is an attraction in itself. And I am in fact fortunate to have spent a year living in the rural rice fields of Buriram, not far from the town of Nang Rong. In a small village known as Thanon Hak (Broken Road). So I have been fortunate enough to visit the above attractions on a bunch of occasions, however, it is the local life and rice fields which have really left the lasting mark. So much so that I have literally written .....a 150,000-word book (found in the sidebar) sharing the rich cultures of these far-flung lands, as well as the contrasting traditions in the lesser-known border regions. I even tried to condense this year, of events and celebrations, into the video below. The Heart of Buddhism. Show less

In Thailand, do like the Thais. Here, there are countless ways to get around; taxis, moto-taxis, red cars… You can opt for a ride in a Tuk Tuk (the famous motorized tricycle) for $2, a 1-hour trip in a sŏrng·tăa·ou (colorful passenger vans) for $1.50, a trip on an express boat on the Khlong Saen Saeb Canal for $0.38, or a 2-hour excursion on a private 10-person long-tail boat (Ruang Hang Yao) for $20/hour… really, you’d be crazy to go without.

By Jen Ruiz of Jen on a Jet Plane: Where can you find the best Pad Thai in Bangkok? If the crowds are any indication, the answer is at Pad Thai Thip Samai. This restaurant has a line that spans not only out the door, but down the block. They sell one thing and one thing only–Pad Thai. With a limited cash menu and staff cranking out this signature dish left and right, you’d think it would be disappointing. Quite the contrary — my shrimp Pad Thai was fresh, flavorful and .....finished in its entirety. We were served hand squeezed tangerine juice with pulp to boot, the perfect complement.  Show less

Open Wednesday to Sunday, this is worth building into your layover or longer itinerary.

By Verislav of the Global Castaway: One of the coolest and most underrated attractions in Bangkok is the Wat Traimit aka the Temple of the Golden Buddha!  Unlike other “golden” statues, this Buddha is truly made of gold, 5500 kilograms of gold to be exact! The statues story is quite a curious one too. While its origin is uncertain, what is known is that the golden Buddha was covered with a layer of stucco and coloured glass for almost 200 years. Hiding its real value, the cast was situated in a .....minor insignificant pagoda until one day the plaster was chipped off by mistake and the gold revealed.

The Bangkok protests have remained surprisingly, non-violent to date and while there was little expectation of aggressive protesters, there was always the likeliness of attacks from the outside, attacks from militant reds and ‘third parties’ who like to stir up a bit of shit. Fortunately any violent scenario is deterred by the army who hold the sidelines, if things do kick off there is always the possibility of a coup; which neither side want. So now the situation stands as a stalemate, the pressure no doubt on the Government’s shoulders. .....While they can ignore the shouts for reform they cannot ignore their empty offices. Adding to their woes the Government and PM have mounting investigations of corruption and thousands of farmers have now joined protests in their own Northern strongholds. It’s not a great time to be in Government. Anyway the egos are holding for now and the protests remain a likely backdrop in Bangkok for the foreseeable future. This does not mean tourists should cancel travel; while Bangkok is not the ideal place to be right now I wouldn’t say it is a dangerous place to be. If you do have jitters you’ll find few problems travelling to other parts of Thailand. For those who chose to stick it out in Bangkok, stay with hotels away from the protest sites and don’t expect travel to be easy in the city centre (but you maybe fine). While I’ve been in Bangkok through many protests I can say these are the least intimidating to date. Unlike former red protests they bare little anger or aggression and are more upbeat, positive and not for underlying tensions… fun. Anyway here is what to expect at the protest sites in Bangkok city centre Sukhumvit (Asoke) and Silom. *Update, the first daylight attack happened today (18th Jan) on a protest march in Pathumwan. A few injured. Marches will always be easier targets than the camp sites, avoid them. Also avoid Suthep, the reds don’t like him.    Show less

Touristy and a little bit grim so if you plan on visiting the Chiang Rai hill tribes be sure to bring some happiness. In short the hill tribes live like props in a museum, you enter the front of the village, walk through the exhibits of local tribes, then back out through the same entrance. I feels somewhat themed but the people are authentic. In Thailand many hill tribes live lives in limbo with no citizenship or rights they can’t really go anywhere. Instead day in, day out they are .....poked and prodded by passing tourists “Can I count your rings”, “Do they hurt…”. Anyway, I’m not here to preach ethics (I visited myself) just try not to be so glum when visiting. (Check here for full blog on Hi 5’s with hill tribes).    Show less

Avatar, Elvis Presley, Kung Fu Panda and Michael Jackson all fill up the inner walls of the building. Neo of the Matrix is flying by and Spiderman is doing his thing. It may all not relate to Buddhism, but the artist uses the images to connect the younger generation to idols and heroes they can relate to. While Michael Jackson moonwalks himself out of the building, superman is trying to keep it all together. The imagination speaks for itself, on the inside and the outside. Besides the all white exterior, there .....is one more building that stands out, because it is completely golden. It is actually the rest room building, which makes it one of the most exclusive number one’s or two’s you will ever take. The building represents the human body. The gold is a symbol that the artist uses to highlight how materialistic people have become. Show less

A chance find, this hill tribe village had a small museum which was closed when we turned up. As you drive around the countryside up here you’ll pass many women and children in traditional tribal costume, it’s cool and pretty much unspoiled by tourism. We followed signs to a hill tribe museum in the village pictured above, it was closed, but we had a wander around the town and people seemed interested in us and wanted to talk. Likewise we stopped to buy a drink at a tiny shop in another .....village, marked as a tourist village on its road sign, there were no tourists, everything seemed very laid back and these villages were nothing like the long neck Karen village we visited near Mae Hong Son. There are long neck villages in this area too but we didn’t visit, not through any ethical concern, we just didn’t have time. There is another, larger hill tribe museum in Chiang Rai. Show less

Along the inner wall you will find rows of Buddha statues which were beheaded by the Burmese in 1767. If staying in the city overnight this temple is said to be the best place to watch the sunset.

Sukhothai Historical Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is much quieter than Angkor Wat, which I definitely appreciated. Perhaps it’s due to the lower influx of tourists in Sukhothai, or perhaps the locals are simply friendlier here, but I felt extremely welcomed in this little pocket of Thailand. The best thing to do is rent bicycles for the day and explore!

Luckily, you booked in a Muay Thai class (available on the Northern Thai Highlights trip). Be prepared to kick, punch, block and SWEAT out everything you’ve consumed since arriving in Thailand. This traditional Thai boxing class will not only test your stamina, but also your reaction time, concentration and ability to comprehend orders in a timely manner, otherwise, BAM, you might get an elbow to the face. It’s known as the ‘art of eight limbs’ for a reason…After cooling off with a dip at your hotel, and as the sun .....begins to swap shifts with the moon, make sure you head to the top of Pai Canyon in time to witness the radiant sunset. Easily accessible by taxi or tuk tuk, you won’t want to miss it. Be prepared to stand with the crowd, as it’s a popular, breath-taking experience – you’ll see why. Show less

Can’t wait to visit the north though, it looks amazing.ReplyAnnasays: March 4, 2019 at 12:01 pm Thanks! You must be busy with work .....and life in Bangkok though so its understandable.

Hope you have a great time in Thailand!ReplyJodiesays: May 14, 2019 at 9:28 am Hey lovely!This is a super fantastic itinerary. I’m currently planning my 9 months around SE Asia from Nov and I’m feeling overwhelmed with planning, it’s not my greatest strength so this is very helpful.Why do you recommend doing the East Islands from May through to October? I’m thinking of seeing both but if there was a cruicial reason I’d reconsider.ReplyAnnasays: May 14, 2019 at 3:22 pm Hey JodieGlad you found the post helpful – don’t get overwhelmed by planning! SEA is easy to travel around and you don’t need to book every single thing in advance – you can take it as you go along although its a good idea to have a general route planned.Thailand has 2 monsoon periods – so thats why I recommend East coast islands in May – October and West Coast – Nov – April to avoid the rains – islands aren’t much fun in the rain but luckily because there are 2 monsoons you should be able to find a sunny island paradise whatever time of year you visit.Hope you have a fab trip! 🙂ReplySuman Hazarikasays: June 8, 2019 at 7:29 am Dear Anna,I am so much in love with all your blogs & itineraries and places that you had been travelled.

The nearest airport is the Surat Thani airport approximately an hour and a half bus ride to Khao Sok National Park. There are inexpensive flights from Bangkok, Phuket and from major cities throughout Asia. For a cheaper option, you can take the bus, hire a minivan or a taxi from the bus station or the airport. Book your tickets in advance here with no cancellation fee. You can also check out this highly recommended Cheaper Than Airport taxi service and book online. From Bangkok: Flights from Bangkok to Surat Thani takes approximately an .....hour. You can book your tickets online through a third-party site like Skyscanner. Or directly via Airasia, Thai Airways, or via Nok Air. Another option is you can take the sleeper train from Bangkok to Surat Thani via Thai Railways or by bus. Train and bus tickets can be booked here. Travel time by land takes about 11 hours in total so if you don’t want to waste a day on a train or a bus, I suggest you fly directly to Surat Thani instead. From Phuket: There are available flights from Phuket to Surat Thani daily. You can view and book available flights via Expedia or via Skyscanner. If you wish to travel by land, I would suggest spending a night in Phuket and leave first thing in the morning.

The market is reached by taking a ride along canals in a longtail boat to give a sense of what local life is like.

Once the beach getaway for Thailand’s Royal Family, the seaside city of Hua Hin is now a beach resort for all. Whereas Pattaya is known for its adult nightlife, Hua Hin appeals to a much broader cross-section of travelers. While there may only be one beach here, Hua Hin Beach, it does stretch from one end of town to the other and is great for swimming. Other popular spots here include Plearnwan, a model village of life in Hua Hin during the 50s, full of shopping spots and places to .....eat. There are also several attractions associated with the Thai Royal Family, like Mrigadayavan Palace which was once the royal beach retreat, and Rajabhakti Park which honors former kings of Thailand. Getting there: With both train and bus options to Hua Hin taking well over 3½ hours, it’s best to look at arranging private transport for your day trip to Hua Hin. Show less
