My Thailand Bucket List

  • Eat at the Bangkok floating market
  • Eat the streets: Explore Thailand’s spicy food: I really am not a huge fan of Thai food, because I’m picky and I hate vegetables (I know shame on me). But I had a number of amazing Thai dishes with such rich flavors and spices. Spicy Beef Basil was one of my favorites!

  • Drink Cocktails at a Bangkok sky bar: At the top of the Lebua at State Tower is a sky bar made famous by the Hangover 2 movie. It truly is a sight to see, but be aware these might be the most expensive cocktails you have in Thailand!

  • Drink an infamous bucketThis is how they do alcohol in Thailand! You can find almost any drink you like served in what looks like a kids sand bucket with about 10 straws! Be prepared to be hanging the next day.

  • Attend Loy Krathong in Chiang Mai
  • Dance the night away at the Full Moon Party: Before heading to Thailand, I heard countless people tell me I need to experience the Full Moon Party. And now I’m here telling you. Any party goer needs to go to the Full Moon Party! Biggest beach party ever!

  • Shop at the Chatuchak weekend market: Rows and rows and rows of clothes, house goods, souvenirs and more. The Chatuchak market is the perfect place to get inexpensive finds from Thailand.

  • Be in awe of the Grand Palace: I don’t know why I had no expectations for the Grand Palace, but oh my goodness was I impressed! Every inch of these temples were ornately decorated. Anyone who loves art or architecture needs to visit!

  • Take an Ayutthaya day trip
  • Chase waterfalls at Erawan National Park
  • Mae Ya Waterfall at Doi Inthanon National Park Chiang Mai
  • See James Bond Island: Adventuring to and around James Bond Island is such a cool thing to do. You will be surrounded by these gigantic limestone cliffs. Kayaking around this area makes you feel like you are in a scene from a movie!

  • AoPhang-nga National Park
  • See the 3 connecting island of Koh Nangyun

  • Indulge in a relaxing massage: Foot massage, Thai massage, oil massage, body scrub, I had it all! You can find a massage place anywhere in Thailand, and the prices are too good to refuse! 200 baht- 250 baht can get a one hour treatment. Thats around 5-7 US dollars!

  • Play with elephants at Elephant Nature Park
  • Pet tigers at Tiger Kingdom: This was so awesome! I was too afraid to go and pet the big tigers, but I built up the courage to spend some time with the tiger cubs.
