41 Things Not to Be Missed in Thailand


Temples on Khao Wang, Phetchaburi

We have another long weekend starting tomorrow and I was browsing through my guidebooks this evening trying to find somewhere new to visit. I cannot go too far as it is only a three day holiday but I could stretch it to four if I left Friday afternoon. Anyway, I will tell you about my destination when I return after the weekend. What I want to blog about today is a “41 Things Not to be Missed” list I discovered in the Rough Guide to Thailand guidebook. Although not comprehensive, it is nethertheless a good starting point to use if you are planning a trip to Thailand.

  1. Phuket
  2. Nan
  3. Sea-canoeing in the Krabi region
  4. Silk
  5. Loy Krathong
