In our previous post we added a list of the things that we love to do in Thailand that are a tad on the adventurous side. Rock Climbing, Elephant Trekking, Kayaking. We love them all and enjoy trying new and exciting things.
While these activities aren’t considered adventure or extreme travel, we still find them exciting. Walking around the maze of a big city, trying new food or taking public transit in a place that you don’t know can all be adventures in their own right.
Here are some of our favorite things to do in Thailand, Period.
1. Visiting the Grand Palace and Wat Pho – A visit to Thailand would not be complete without a visit to These Great Temples. The former Royal Residence covers and area of 218,400 sq. metres; It is Grand indeed and houses the Emerald Buddha (which is really made out of Jade)
Wat Pho is home to the Reclining Buddha at 46 metres long and 15 metres high. This golden beauty is Thailand’s largest reclining Buddha in the oldest Wat in Bangkok.

I had never witnessed so many shades of blue and I couldn’t comprehend the beauty around me.
But what we were really excited to see was the sculpture of a whale skeleton that someone put together years ago.
