Thailand is a country that knows no boundaries when it comes to fun. From ear blowing dart shows to monkeys performing magic tricks there’s never a dull moment that occurs once you step foot onto the exotic country. Thailand has all sorts of entertainment for people from all over the world, you can start your day off by dipping your feet in the warm clear oasis waters of Phuket and then end the night with a shot of snake blood in Bangkok.
“The moment I stepped into Bangkok I felt so free” said July Roeuth, who visited Thailand in the summer of 2015.
The temples in Thailand provide you with peace and tranquility on those days that you just want to relax and escape. The architecture of the temples are ancient and they display the history and culture of Thailand. Bangkok alone has over 20 Sacred Temples that are welcome to all guests; here you can see local monks and giant Buddha statues.
So you might be thinking: all this spontaneity would hurt your bank account? Not at all! In Thailand you can have an entire day worth of excitement without having to worry about your wallet getting damaged.
“I think it’s literally impossible for an American to starve to death,” said Roeuth, “because food is just so cheap!”
Today, one U.S. dollar is equal to approximately 35 Thai Bahts.
Besides the beautiful temples, another tourist attraction that Thailand provides is the floating markets. One can rent a boat and coast through the rivers where other boats are afloat. There, local vendors sell a vast amount of merchandise aboard their little boats. Merchandise can range from local beers to fresh locally grown vegetables. The possibilities are endless from home style Thai food to sneakers, you name it the floating market has got it.
Finally, to end your day, Thailand’s nightlife is like no other anywhere else in the world. As depicted through Hollywood movies such as The Hangover Pt. 2, The Beach, and others, it clearly has an untold adventure in store for even the most humble tourist. The carnival shows with live tigers and the low-priced alcohol has tourists completely overwhelmed.
Downtown Bangkok is famous for being the most diverse area in the world. It’s a perfect opportunity to mingle with travelers from all over the world. Sit down, introduce yourself and crack open a few beers; your night of fun is just beginning with the people you just met at the bar.
Overall, a trip to Thailand is something that everyone must experience at least once in a lifetime. The streets are lawless, the entertainment is never ending, and the scenery is beautiful. The Southeastern country leaves a feeling in your veins that makes you want to come back for more… because there’s always something new to discover in Thailand.
