Thailand is a magical land and that’s something that can be confirmed from any foreigner that has visited this amazing Asian country. If you want to travel to this country without a plan you will probably need weeks in order to explore all its major attractions. Since almost all of us have limited time to travel abroad we have made a short-term plan to take a look at Thailand’s most important locations.
The tours in Thailand usually start in Bangkok – the capital of this kingdom. Take your time and wonder around the city but don’t forget to visit the Grand Palace. Another thing that is interesting about this city is the two unusual Buddhist temples – Wat Trimitr (where the gigantic statue of Buddha in gold is located) and Wat Po one of the most spacious temples in whole Thailand with another gigantic Buddha statue. The Grand Palace is the finest example of the once glorious ancient Siamese kingdom.
You can’t say that you know Thailand if you don’t visit the city of Ayuthaya – ancient capital of Siam that was destroyed during Burmese Wars in the 18th century. Visiting Wat Yai Mongkol temple is a must. There is another interesting temple that is now in ruins – Wat Chai Wattanaram.
Lampang is another interesting location in Thailand. This city is home to the wooden palace called Baan Sao Nak (over one century old) and this is the place where Wat Chedi Sao is located. This temple is known outside the borders of Thailand because the priests that live there are known for production of various natural remedies that can cure many diseases and medical conditions.
The north of Thailand is considered to be the most beautiful part of Thailand by many travelers. Chiang Rai is the biggest city in the north and it is often used as a base to explore the various landscapes, high mountains and fertile fields around it. Depending on the altitude, the natural vegetation consists of chains of bamboo forest, conifers, and tropical and mountain forest. This grandiose region, often covered in mist, is inhabited by many indigenous people.
These are only some of the places that you can explore on your short stay in Thailand. This country is truly remarkable so if you decide to travel there, try to stay as long as you can.
