Thailand is a hyperactive nation in Southeast Asia. This country has a multitude of traditions and local customs that are different from ours. You should take off your shoes before entering someone’s home as a sign of respect. This ritual is mandatory in temples and museums. A trip to Thailand is packed with beautiful experiences. This country is fascinating with many aspects: the beauty of its beaches, its nightlife, its many Buddhist temples and the kindness of its people. Thailand is simply wonderful!

What to do in Thailand


Bangkok

Capital of Thailand, Bangkok is known for its exciting nightlife. In fact, this city never sleeps. Bangkok is anything but boring… This large city offers many bars, nightclubs, night markets as well as animated and crowded streets. In all this frenzy, you will need a break. Why not take a moment to visit one of the city's shopping malls? Terminal 21 is a nine-storey complex that should be on every shopaholic’s itinerary. You will be impressed by the architecture. Each floor represents a city in the world. In a few minutes you will feel as though you are traveling to various places from Tokyo, Istanbul, Rome, Paris and the Caribbean. Chaotic and big, Bangkok is a bustling cosmopolitan city!


Floating markets

Floating markets are very popular in this Southeast Asian country and are part of local daily life. On board their small boats, various merchants sell exotic fruits, vegetables, fish... One of the most popular floating markets is located in the small town of Damnoen Saduak, approximately 100 kilometers from Bangkok. Discover this unique experience and browse among the fresh produce vendors. We recommend a visit early in the morning in order to avoid large crowds and very hot weather.


Chiang Mai

Located in the mountains of Northern Thailand, this city offers various attractions for tourists, such as numerous Buddhist temples, jungle expeditions and swimming in the Grand Canyon. Chiang Mai is nicknamed "the city of 300 temples"... actually, you will find them around each and every corner! The Doi Suthep Temple is a beautiful temple founded  in 1383. A stop at the elephant sanctuary is also a must. You will be able to feed them, wash them and even walk with them. Become one of their good friends!


Ayutthaya Historical Park

This historic landmark has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991. This site consists of the ruins of the ancient city and the ancient temples. The city, founded in 1350, was the capital of the Kingdom of Siam. You will be able to visit more than 15 sites, including a reclining Buddha and a Buddha's head trapped in the roots of a tree. This park will introduce you to Thailand’s most fascinating history.


Phi Phi Islands 

The Phi Phi Islands form a small archipelago of six limestone islands, of which the two main ones are Ko Phi Phi Le and Ko Phi Phi Don. They are located in the Andaman Sea. Koh Phi Phi Don is the main island of the archipelago, the largest and the only one inhabited. Koh Phi Phi Le is also an island of great beauty, but, as opposed to the other one, it is uninhabited. Get ready to fall in love with the Phi Phi Islands’ white sandy beaches, turquoise sea and beautiful landscapes. Please also note that they are one of the most popular scuba diving spots on the planet. Their seabed is exceptional.
