It’s almost the end of the year again, and one of the most popular activities on everybody’s checklist after the peak of the pandemic is travelling. Luckily, there are many beautiful places in Thailand that are suitable for any lifestyles. Just like they say—superb experiences always happen nearby.
Fantastic Architecture with Seasight – Phuket
Aside from beautiful beaches and crystal blue water, another fascinating quality of Phuket is the Sino-Portuguese architecture. They blend wonderfully with a glitzy vibe from tourists, and without a doubt add a bit of unexpected charm to any visitor’s Phuket experience. Recommend spots including Kathu house, Thalang Road A.K.A. The Old Town, and Soi Rommanee.
Philosopher’s Trip – Chon Buri
If you want your trip to be more about inner self than outer self-enjoyment, go to Chonburi to enjoy Prasat Sajjatham (The Sanctuary of Truth)—one of the world’s largest all wood-carved structures. This 105-tall building is a temple-slash-museum, with a gallery showing amazing artwork related to the philosophy of Buddhism.
Sucker for Adventure – Chiang Mai
Some say travelling and being active help relieving stress, so why don’t we do both? Head to Chiang Mai where there are many fascinating mountains to trek and soak up your soul. Our favorites include Doi Inthanon which contains a complex ecological system and wildlife, and Mae On with a peaceful rural village to enjoy the slow pace of life.
Fashionista Time – Ubon Ratchathani
Ubon Ratchathani has many charming cultures which you won’t be able to experience at any other places. Fashionista would love the hand-woven cloth with unique patterns and high-quality textile that you can wear on every occasion. Folk pattern pillows and brass wares are also recommendable as you would want some souvenirs for people back at home.
Culture sightseeing – Bangkok
Being the capital city of Thailand with growing economics, Bangkok is a huge melting pot blending Chinese, Thai, and Western culture as one. The must-see including Yaowarat—Thailand’s largest Chinese trading community—to find heavenly delicious street food, knickknacks at bargaining prices, Cho Su Kong Chinese shrine, to famous restaurants.
