Planning for a Thailand getaway? This place has all the fun from beaches and bustling shopping hubs to exotic spa treatments and delicious cuisine. Thailand is a hub that will excite everyone. It also enjoys a convenient distance from India, making it a popular tourist spot for many.
If you’re planning a vacation to Thailand for the very first time, here’s a comprehensive itinerary to help you experience with the best that this destination has to offer.
Get, set for a novel full of adventures and experiences. Explore the Thai Capital on your first day. This place is known for its bachelor life, but little do people know that it is famous for its magnificent temples, vibrant markets, and exotic street food. Enjoy the scenic views of Chao Phraya River. Begin your day with a guided tour via Travel Dil Se for the ornate Grand Palace, the erstwhile residence of the Kings of Siam. While you’re here, spend some quality time at the museum, stroll through the royal gardens, and soak in the grandeur of the courtyards.
Later, enjoy a fun-filled time at Chatuchak Weekend Market, where you can snack on local street food and shop for souvenirs.
Whether you’re travelling with friends or family, Chinatown is a must-visit! From here you can head to Safari World if you’re a nature lover, as it offers a marine park as well as a wildlife park. The Wildlife Feeding Show, Jungle Cruise River Ride, Tropical Rain Forest Aviary, Dolphin Encounters and Crocodile Garden are some of the highlights there.
Alternatively, adventure buffs can visit Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World, the largest aquarium in South East Asia, boasting of over 30,000 sea creatures. Mark an end while you walk through the underwater tunnel, admiring the various exhibits, and spending time at the touch pool here. Lastly, don’t forget to have a Thai massage and hit the sack!
A short flight from Bangkok will take you to the beautiful island of Phuket. In the first half of the day, you can opt for a city tour. This will cover the top attractions like Big Buddha, Wat Chalong, Old Town Phuket and Patong Beach. Spend the rest of your day relaxing at the gorgeous beaches of Karon or Kamala.
Party at the Phuket’s lively Bangla Road till the wee hours. The street also has many good restaurants, serving authentic Thai food and local seafood delicacies.
Head over to Pattaya for your second last days to experience yet another side of Thailand. Start with visiting the Sanctuary of Truth, an intricately carved wooden building and a place of immense religious significance for Buddhists and Hindus. Indulge in a range of water sports, or simply enjoy some peaceful moments as you build sandcastles at the beach.
Other top attractions in Pattaya include Underwater World Pattaya, NongNooch Tropical Garden and the iconic Big Buddha Temple. The unique Pattaya Floating Market is also a must on your itinerary, for its waterfront location and a range of Thai artefacts and handicrafts that can be found here.
In the morning, plan for a quick trip to Central Festival Pattaya Mall or the beautifully designed Mimosa (inspired by the French city of Colmar) for a round of shopping. Grab souvenirs, home décor items, jewellery and other such local delights from the markets, before you prepare to leave for the airport for your flight back home.
