If you feel identified with the types of travelers that we have just mentioned and you are thinking of traveling to Thailand soon, what we show you below will be very useful, since we are going to tell you about some of the excursions you can do in this beautiful country. Would you like to join us?
If there is a mandatory excursion in Thailand this is to Bangkok, a capital where you can enjoy shopping, an incredible night party and some treasures of Buddhist culture. Travel agencies offer different packs, which can include visits to temples, different neighborhoods of the city, the most famous markets, the most important museums, the canals, the Siam Ocean World …
Phang Nga Bay
Another essential excursion is to Phang Nga Bay, where you will discover some of the most impressive landscapes in all of Southeast Asia, with beautiful islands, vertigo cliffs, caves and archaeological ruins. In fact, in this place is the famous James Bond Island . On the other hand, you should bear in mind that the excursions that take you to the most amazing corners of this bay usually include snorkeling activities on the coral reefs. The excursions are usually made from the island of Phuket, a place that maintains the virgin interior, despite the fact that its beaches are highly developed.
Angkor Wat temples
Agencies such as Mundo Nómada Travel propose excursions from Bangkok to the Angkor Wat Temples, also known as the Angkor Archaeological Park, where you will find the ruins of the more than 1,000 temples that the Khmer Empire built from the 11th to the 15th century AD. Keep in mind that this place is located in Cambodia, so if you decide to go, we recommend that you make the most of your visit.
Ang Thong National Park
Another visit that we recommend is to the Ang Thong National Park, which, as you can imagine, is done by boat. It is a group of islands that have spectacular cliffs, amazing caves and paradisiacal beaches. In addition, on one of the islands you will find a volcanic lake surrounded by cliffs that will amaze you.
Phi Phi Islands
Another place where you should go if you have the opportunity to tour Thailand is to the Koh Phi Phi Islands. Many travel agencies offer day trips from Phuket or Krabi, an island that is also worth an excursion. It is one of the most famous places in the country, since the film " The Beach " by Leonardo Di Caprio was filmed here. Excursions to this place include, among others, a visit to Bamboo Island, Viking Cave, the cove between Pileh Lagoon cliffs, the beach where the film we mentioned earlier was filmed (Maya Beach) and the Monkey Beach.
Koh Smui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao
Many agencies also take excursions to Koh Samui, which is the third largest island in Thailand. From there you can travel to the islands of Koh Tao and Koh Phangan, the latter known for the famous full moon party .
If you have time, we also recommend that you take excursions to places such as the city of Chiang Mai, from where many trekking or elephant routes depart; Pattaya; Hua Hin, Koh Samet, and Koh Chang.
