Thailand travel buddy
Thailand has been a popular destination choice for travellers since the 1960s. Tourism since then has exploded immensely and over 20 million travellers visit each year. As you can imagine, for good reason, Thailand has a lot to offer for all types of travellers.
1. Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
Not only will you and your trip mates make amazing photos here, but you can also experience the rich culture of Thai’s bustling markets while floating down the lively canals. You’ll be part of the action while enjoying all the sights around you. Split the cost with your Thailand travelmate and hop on a long-tail boat and indulge in all the food, souvenirs, clothing, and fresh produce.
2. Chiang Mai Sunday Night Walking Street
Chiang Mai is for travellers who want to take things a little bit slower from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. Chiang Mai is noted as the “Rose of the North” and seduced by laid back vibes, beautiful Buddhist temples and delicious food. The Sunday Night Walking Street stretches 1 km and is filled with clothing, street food, handcrafted jewellery and goods, shoes, and accessories. You and your Thailand travelmate need to brush up on your bargaining skills before you go though!
3. Elephant Nature Park
Are you and your travel companions animal lovers? You will have to head to Chiang Mai’s Elephant Nature Park, as it is sure to be an unforgettable experience. This elephant nature park has turned into the world's largest and most respected elephant sanctuaries and a safe haven for rescued elephants who are elderly, previously abused or injured. Visitors are free to wander the park, bathe and feed the elephants. All proceeds from admission go towards feeding the elephants and maintaining the park. Talk about a feel good experience.
4. Koh Lanta Island
For the Thailand travel companions looking for sand between your toes, head to Koh Lanta Island and you will not be disappointed. It is one of Thailand's most pristine islands and a must go for beach lovers. Skip the crowds of Koh Samui and Phuket and enjoy this one alone. 500-meters of empty beach and perfect for swimming and lounging. Finally, you can get that insta worthy photo of you and your trip mates without anyone in the background.
5. Sukhothai Historical Park
Take some history knowledge back home with you and head to Sukhothai Historical Park. Dating back to 11th century, this was the first ancient capital of the Kingdom of Siam in 1238. It is now preserved as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an incredible destination to explore on foot, bike, or tour. This site takes a full day to explore, so don’t rush its historical sites.
