10 Awesome Things to do in Thailand

1. Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall, Bangkok

The first thing on this list of awesome things to do in Thailand is Ananta Samakham Throne Hall. It also goes by the name of The Arts of the Kingdom Museum.

The architecture and interior of this building are stunning. It is also a public museum with many artworks. It is well worth the look even if you are not into museums.

2. Hellfire Pass, Kanchanaburi

When the Japanese invaded Thailand during WW2 they set out to build the Burma Railway. Allied POW’s were the ones that had to do the labor and the Hellfire Pass was a particularly brutal section. Many people died.

Nowadays you can walk through hellfire pass while listening to an audio tour. It is very interesting.

3. Wat Kaew Temple, Krabi

Wat Kaew Temple is a small but beautiful Buddhist temple in the town of Krabi. The rest of Krabi town is not that great, but the surrounding nature and beaches are amazing.

4. Khao Lak Lam Ru National Park

Khao Lak Lam Ru National Park is a great example of where the jungle meets the beach. I had a nice day hike there. You can also take a shortcut if your only aim is to swim.

The entry ticket into Khao Lak Lam Ru National Park will also get you into Chong Fa waterfall.

6. Phi Phi Island

Phi Phi is the epitome of a backpackers island. I would have never gone there if it wasn’t for meeting friends, but I had a good time all the same. Worth a look if you are into the backpacker vibe on an idyllic paradise island.

8. Bangla Road

This one is for the heathens. Bangla road in Patong Beach is like no other street I have ever walked down. Imagine New Orleans at night with a lot more sex appeal.

10. Floating Markets

The last thing on this list of awesome things to do in Thailand is to check out the floating markets. I’ve never done this because it starts way too early for my liking. If you don’t mind the early start, it is a part of Thai culture definitely worth taking in.
