Thailand, just like most Asian countries, is proud of its religious influences. You do not have to be religious yourself to appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of the many Buddhist temples all over the country. These temples may be intimidating with their extravagant details and exterior, but there is something in them that is inviting and mystical.

 

A Thailand trip would be incomplete without seeing a temple or two. The white temple in Chiang Rai, known as the Wat Rong Khun, is one of the more famous Buddhist temples that tourists go to. With its intricate physique, it looks like something that is straight from a magical movie. Contrastingly, its inside is painted with Batman and Kung Fu Panda art.

If you’re looking for a transport experience like no other, riding a tuk-tuk should top your list. Also called the ‘sam lor’, tuk-tuk is a three-wheeled public vehicle that can take you around the city. While trains and buses have replaced tuk-tuk as the primary transportation around the city, most tourists still give it a go for the experience.

 

EXPERIENCE THE FOOD

Thai cuisine is not a stranger to other countries, as there are already tons of Thai restaurants all over the world. Despite this, nothing beats a 100% authentic Thai food experience, where else, but in Thailand.

 

People love Thai food for its distinct spice. For starters, there’s the famous pad thai that everyone likes. I seriously have never met anyone who doesn’t appreciate this Thai noodle dish. They also have coconut-based chicken curry and hundreds of types of shrimp dishes. Tom Yam, a herb-based broth, is also very popular and is perfect for a rainy evening.

You should never miss Thailand’s street food as well. They have a variety of grilled meat, som tam (papaya salad), and phat kaphrao, which is a combination of meat with fried basil that is served over steamed rice and sunny side up egg.
