Thailand is one of the most visited places in South East Asia because of its rich culture and stunning natural wonders. From amazing beaches, exotic wildlife and ancient temples, there's just a lot of things to do there. If you're a first-timer you'd be confused what to do so here are some travel tips for things to do in Thailand for first-time travelers.

Grand Palace Tour

The Grand Palace is one of the main attractions in Thailand. It's located in Bangkok and for about 150 years, it served as the home for government and the king. According to The Crazy Tourist, the area is 218, 400 sq. meters wide so it's definitely worth a visit but tourists should take note that there's a strict dress code.

Elephant Trekking

It's totally a different experience seeing elephants in their natural environment. In Thailand, you'd even have the chance to go swimming with them and ride them bareback. The Mahawangchang Elephant Camp is a must see for first-time travelers and it's about a 4-hour drive from Bangkok.

Experience Authentic Thai Massage

You've probably had Thai massage before but it's totally different experiencing authentic Thai massage in Thailand. It's one of the most famous massages in the world known for a combination of stretching and pushing pressure points. It will really make you feel relaxed and invigorated.

Similan Islands

These rock formations and islands are about an 8-hour boat ride away from Phuket. It's a marine national park which means there is lots of wildlife in the area. It's best for people who love to enjoy snorkeling and diving in is crystal clear waters. According to Hotels.com, Similan means nine, so the name refers to the nine islands in the area.

Floating Markets

You haven't been to Thailand if you didn't go to the floating markets. The place is just around Bangkok and it will really give you a feel of Thailand. There are also other floating markets in Thailand so you can avoid huge crowds of vendors and tourists.

For those first-time travelers, Thailand is a must see. Now that you know some things to when in Thailand, all that's left is to pack your bags and book a flight.
