Thailand, the country of the quintessential smile, is a vibrant and evocative nation that continues to be one of the main gateways to the heart of Asia.
Its capital, Bangkok, is an immense city in which a strong contrast between modernity and tradition is clearly appreciated. In it you can see shopping malls and other modern buildings and, at the same time, thousand-year-old palaces and temples such as, for example, the Royal Palace and the main “Wat”, Buddhist temples that are true havens of peace in the midst of urban chaos. Do not forget that the best way to immerse yourself in the bustle of Bangkok is to do it in a tuk-tuk, a picturesque three-wheeled motorcycle that ensures a fun and local experience.
We recommend you visit the area of the canals or “klongs” and take an excursion to Damnoen Saduak, a district where you will have the opportunity to visit its original floating market by boat: a whole show of boat-shops that transport regional products.
Next to Bangkok are the ruins of the city of Ayutthaya, remains of impressive temples which have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
In the north of Thailand, the town of Chiang Mai awaits you, also known as “The Rose of the North”, located on the banks of the Ping River. Here, in addition to exploring some of its many temples, you will have the pleasure of contemplating its mountains, its valleys and its rivers. If you want to extend your stay in this area of the country, we recommend spending a few days in Chiang Rai where you will be surprised by the architecture and originality of the White Temple.
After so much activity, what better way to spend a little time relaxing, right? For this reason, we suggest you finish this exciting trip on the majestic beaches of southern Thailand, savoring, why not, a good pad thai.
