Wat Pho is a large temple complex located close to Khao San Road. It's a great place to visit in Thailand.

Beautiful temples. Famous for its many bells around the temples. There's a saying that if you ring every bell there, you will be very lucky. You can also free the animals, usually fishes and birds, at the Chao Praya riverside for extra luck. Downside is the lack of parking spaces. If you want to take a car, just beware that ...

We took two other tours of the Cambodian countryside while in Siem Reap - one on quads and one on horseback - and we loved them both. Our bike tour with Grasshopper Adventures was undoubtedly the best way to not only see the Cambodian countryside, but also to have some interaction with the people. We not only covered 30km of ...

Baan Bat is Bangkok's Monk's bowl street. The bowls are lovely and this is a great place to watch them being made and to purchase one. Highly recommended even if you are in Bangkok for a short stay. Doesn't require much time once you are there.Popular withAdventureLocalSpiritual
