Things to do in Thailand
Thailand has many festivals throughout the year that you can take part in. The Flower Festival is a three-day agricultural celebration in Chiang Mai that begins in early February. Here, you can see beautiful flower arrangements along with performances and beauty pageants. The highlight of the Flower Festival is the parade from Saphan Nawarat to Suan Buak Hat. For a less floral event, you can travel to Thailand in April to see the Thai-boxing competition. The location tends to change year to year, but the fights are nonetheless thrilling to see!
Wat Pho is a temple that is usually overlooked by your average tourist. It is one of Bangkok's largest temples and features the largest statue of a reclining Buddha and the largest collection of Buddha images in all of Thailand. Wat Pho is also the site for the teaching of traditional Thai medicine and is considered to be the country's earliest public education center. Khao National Park is also an escape to a simpler time, with at least twelve trails and the option for a self-guided tour. Many of the park's residents include tigers, elephants, gibbons, and a variety of tropical birds.
