One deserves to leave completely relaxed and without any fatigue after finishing a tour of Thailand in its entirety. One of the best things to do in Thailand is to treat yourself to a Thai massage after a long trip around the country. Thai massage has a long tradition and uses ancient techniques to release our muscle tension. They help with blood circulation and improve our body posture. Banyan Tree Spa in Bangkok, Fah Lanna Spa in Chiang Mai, and Grace Spa in Pattaya are some of the major spa attractions.

Learn Thai cooking style

We always look for something, be it souvenirs or life lessons, to bring home from any country we visit. Learning Thai cooking is a fantastic thing to do in Thailand while visiting there. If you're a food explorer who's interested in incorporating different styles into their menu, many places in Thailand offer short courses that you can take and learn. Siom Thai Cooking School, Infusion in Krabi, and Asia Scenic Thai Cooking School are a few of the best places to learn how to cook. Even though there are numerous online courses, taking them in person in Thailand with other like-minded individuals is an incredible experience.

Explore Siam Square

One of the best things to do in Thailand is to visit Ratchaprasong, the nation's shopping centre, after arriving in Bangkok. Siam Square is one such location in this region, which has both upscale boutiques and vintage small shops that are popular with tourists and teenagers. We could easily spend an entire day here just exploring thanks to the incredible malls and shops that are located in the area. The Siam BTS station and Sukhumvit Road in this location offer excellent connectivity to other areas. Other nearby attractions include the Paragon shopping centre, the Erawan shrine, and the Jim Thompson House.

Meditation Retreat in Thailand

Beaches, nightlife, extreme sports, hiking, and snorkelling are all frequently associated with Thailand. However, in recent years, meditative and spiritual retreats have started to gradually influence spiritual tourism. Spiritual retreats are among the interesting things to do in Thailand if you're trying to improve yourself and learn more about yourself. Thailand is one of the top destinations for health and wellness retreats; every year, a lot of tourists come here to reflect on their identities. The retreats, which combine elements of Buddhism and meditative practices, are more about connecting with oneself, so participants would put away all sources of distraction, such as their smartphones and laptops, and spend some time alone practicing meditation. The Koh Samui-based Kamalaya Meditation Center, the Dharana Meditation and Retreat Center, and the Pavana resorts are a few of the well-known centres.

Immerse in the Chinese New Year Celebration

Chinese New Year Celebration.jpg

Thailand lavishly celebrates the Chinese New Year because a sizable portion of the population is Chinese or of Chinese descent. Visits to this celebration are wonderful things to do in Thailand because the new year falls in January or February. Some of the best things to do here around this time include wearing a red dress and witnessing the Chinese parade happening in Bangkok, Phuket, and other regions. Also, street festivals and late-night cracker celebrations are things that shouldn’t be missed in Thailand's cities.
