Thailand beyond its beaches
Thailand offers the most scenic beach and clear ocean waters to travellers. The country of Thailand has a beautiful coastal length of 2815 kilometres.
However, most travellers and tourists that travel to Thailand are most excited about the beaches. While Thailand’s beach beauty is unparalleled, there plenty else to look forward to.
Thai Culinary Cuisine
Thai cuisine is a fundamental aspect of Thai culture and it is extremely relished all over the world. The local cuisine is made with fresh produce and local ingredients. The cuisine consists of an array of fresh caught animals from the sea, exotic salads, and wonderful coconut-infused dishes. Market stalls in Mae Sot and Phuket seafood shops are the best place for trying the cuisine.
Chiang Mai – The Night Market
Chaing Mai is a beautiful night market that offers great shopping options for every traveller. This is a local market, you can browse, shop and even bargain to get the best prices for your loved items. Wualang Walking Market and Sunday Walking Market are one of the few places where shoppers can get great deals.
Trekking a Remote National Park
Thailand has plenty of natural reserves within national parks and wildlife conservatories. As a result, you can always visit an obscure waterfall or go to a national park and breathe in the fresh Thailand air. The variety of flora and fauna in such places will also enthral you. In order to get closer to nature, you can go to fishing spots, hiking trails, emerald pools etc.
Temples of Chiang Mai
The famous Chiang Mai area in Thailand is famous all over for its historical stories. These beautiful, old stories are sung widely by priests and teachers at the temples.
These temples also serve as schools and hospitals for the people. With about 300 temples spread all over the country, their architectural style remains unique. All temples are mostly from the 13-18th century, they all have a ‘Lanna Style’ architecture. This type of ancient architecture is heavily characterized by curved roofs. Tourists usually enjoy this attraction as they get to have a taste of Thai history too.
