Thailand Bucket List

I don’t make itineraries anymore when I plan my trips. My preferred method of trip planning is to make a travel bucket list for the location. Here you can read my Thailand Bucket List and the progress made on it thusfar. At this point, my only trip to Thailand was 2013 to backpack Southeast Asia with my mother. I am currently looking to come back in 2019, stay tuned!

I hope you feel free to use this bucket list, however; I encourage you to make your own bucket list based on what interests YOU about visiting Thailand (make one, SHARE on Instagram, & TAG me @thethingsmyeyeshaveseen so I can see it!) The Things My Eyes Have Seen is not meant to be a travel guide. This bucket list is not meant to tell you what you ‘must do’ or where you ‘should stay.’ Create your own unique travel experiences; plan things based on what genuinely interests you, stay places that fit your budget and suit your needs, find what makes you excited and inspired. For me, this is my ultimate Thailand Bucket List. 

 


✓ Elephants

My initial trip to Thailand in 2013 was inspired by my fascination with Elephants. I was captivated by them. After extensive research, I chose to Volunteer with Elephants at Elephant Nature Park with my mom in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Spending a week here was informative, empowering, and life changing. Read to see why I chose Elephant Nature Park and what it is like to volunteer with those majestic creatures.

Visit Wats

Chiang Mai is an old city in Northern Thailand surrounded by a moat and has streets lined with Wats (temples.) One of my favorite memories of Thailand is walking around Chiang Mai with my mother while we drank Boba Tea [RECIPE HERE.] There are beautiful Wats all over Thailand. If you have one to recommend, comment with the name at the end of this page.

Meditation Retreat

Personally, I have come to enjoy the benefits of meditation. I was excited to participate in this part of the Thai culture. Attending the Silent Meditation Retreat with Monkchat in Chiang Mai with my mother was one of the most interesting experiences of my time in Thailand [and of my entire life.] What do I mean when I say silent? I mean two full days of no talking. Read more by following the link to see how we ended up choosing this affordable retreat in particular.

Night Market

I made an effort to visit the Chiang Mai night market when we were there. It was a lively place with an incredible energy. I love the bustle of people and children out spending time together in public. Do you have more night markets in Thailand to recommend for my next visit? Please, let me know if the comments below.

Ride in Tuk Tuk

Ok, so maybe thre is something you ‘must do’ when you are in Thailand; ride in a tuk tuk. There is something exciting about people rushing around in tuk tuks every where you look. Riding around late at night with my mother, as we regularly got lost in the back of a tuk tuk [our hotel was hard to find] holds some funny memories for me. Have you ever been in a tuk tuk? Do you think it is as fun as I am leading on?

  1. I have been to Thailand twice. But I haven’t been to Chiang Mai till now. I loved Thai food, Culture and markets. If you are in Bangkok, please visit Asiatique Market for its vibrancy and best Thai food. I love the energy out there. Also, I am yet to go on a meditation trip in Thailand. I am sure that you had the best time with your mother.

    1. Thank you for reading Parnashree, I will have to add the Asiatique Market to my list for the next time I visit. I love the Thai food and culture too. Happy Travels! XX
