Thailand is a country full of beauty and rich in culture. Everything from gorgeous beaches, ancient architecture to delicious food can all be explored in Thailand in 2 weeks. If you’re unfamiliar or you’d like to make the most of your time, consider taking a private day tour. You’ll save time, have all your questions answered, and avoid the headache of having to decide what you want to do. With those issues out of the way, all that’s left to enjoy is in front of you. Here are the places you must check out in 2 weeks in Thailand!
Markets are a great way to experience all the intricate details any culture has to offer. You can find great trinkets, art, and local goods that are truly unique.
However, Damnoen Saduak isn’t your average market, because it’s a floating market! Hundreds of boat vendors row up and down the market’s canals selling everything from fruits, food cooked on the spot, and other local products. Even if you end up not buying anything, you’ll have a great time absorbing the local atmosphere. Also, you can’t go wrong supporting local vendors!
For a less-touristy vibe, head to Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market in Bangkok and Tha Kha Floating Market in Samut Songkhram. You’ll enjoy the atmosphere of a floating market with the bonus of fewer crowds.
The railway bridge over the River Kwai has been etched in the history books thanks to the terrors of WWII. Nowadays, only a few parts of the Death Railway is still functional. What you can do is take a trip through history while also getting a great view of some of Thailand’s most scenic vistas in Kanchanaburi.
Bangkok, Thailand’s capital, boasts a huge number of things to do. Check out some of the famous temples, the wide variety of markets, and other fascinating sites such as the Grand Palace in the Old Town. Bangkok is a city that is entertaining to stroll through, taking in all the odd parts that make it what it is. Its mix of classical and modern living create a great atmosphere that is certain to make a mark on your trip. There’s also a vibrant culinary scene, allowing you to try all kinds of delicious street food, particularly in Chinatown.
A trip to Thailand is not complete without a trip to Chiang Mai. The “capital” of northern Thailand happens to be the second largest city in the kingdom. If you enjoy the slow life, bountiful nature, and friendly people, then Chiang Mai will give you the respite you need. Be sure to check out Bua Tong “Sticky” Waterfalls, ethical elephant sanctuaries, and stunning mountain views while you’re there!
Likewise, a trip to Thailand without visiting the beach is a trip wasted. Some of the most spectacular beaches in the world are located along the coasts of the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand. If you want to see the aquamarine waters and pristine sandy beaches, head to Koh Samui or Phuket. Do relax in the sun to unwind after a couple weeks of busy traveling, or take a boat out on the water for some more fun.
Thailand is a truly remarkable place that should be at the top of your bucket list. From the beaches to the food, there’s a reason why Thailand is one of the most visited countries on Earth. Book a trip today and see how Thailand will enthrall you with its charms!
