Top 20 Things to Do In Thailand


The Grand Palace in Bangkok is the most famous and widely visited landmark in the city. It can get a little bit crowded, but this is certainly one of those “tourist-y” places you wouldn’t want to miss. The Grand Palace or Phra Borom Maha Ratcha Wang in Thai, was the center of all political affairs in Siam until about 1925. It was where the monarchy resided, and most of the buildings in the compound housed different offices of the royal government. Since then, the monarchy moved out of the palace and currently resides in Chitralada Royal Villa, but the Grand Palace remains to be the spiritual center of Bangkok.

The compound consists of the outer, middle and inner courts, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and the Siwalai Gardens. Some royal offices still operate from within the palace and many of Bangkok’s royal events are still held there. Since The Grand Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha are incredibly sacred to the Thai, proper attire and decorum should be worn when visiting the palace.

    The Full Moon Party is douchebag central. It’s the last thing I would ever want to do at home much less travel around the world for.

    Thai boxing and the palace are the only truly unique things. Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos offer the others. Myanmar/Burma probably as well.
