Activities

The splendid, much-coveted Thai temple (or wát) is actually a compound of different buildings that serve specific religious functions. Even if you don’t consider yourself spiritual, Bangkok’s temples provide a multitude of pleasures that range in scope from artistic inspiration to more straightforward urban exploration.

Within the temples themselves you’ll see the native Siamese styles of building, as well as examples from historical Khmer, Mon, Lao and northern Thai traditions. The observant will quickly note that every wát in Bangkok has a Buddha image, usually sculpted according to strict iconographical rules found in Buddhist art texts dating to the 3rd century AD. Myriad scenes from both secular and religious life embellish the inner walls of temples. Always instructional in intent, painted images range from depictions of the jatakas (life stories of the Buddha) and scenes from the Indian Hindu epic Ramayana to elaborate scenes detailing daily life in Thailand.

Phuket is surrounded by many beautiful islands and each one of them has something different to offer. Only minutes away from Phuket there are sandy beaches, secluded coves, rare birds and fauna with beautiful weather thrown in for free. Island hopping by speedboat is a way of taking all this beauty in.

Relax under swaying palm trees then jump into crystal-clear waters – spend time island-hopping through the best of southern Thailand's islands. The itinerary changes seasonally, but you'll get a memorable experience no matter what time of year you visit. Snorkel the warm waters and meet the friendly locals while enjoying this tropical paradise. Get geared up for adventure or unwind on the islands’ beaches – it’s your choice.

MAYAN RUINS

Tulum

You cannot find a Mayan ruin with a more dramatic location. This small but breathtaking city is set on a cliff top by the Caribbean Sea, just two hours south of Cancun. You can’t climb on these structures, but Tulum does have one of the world’s most unique beaches at the foot of the cliff.

Chichen Itza

By far the most famous Mayan ruins in Mexico, Chichen Itza is a popular day trip for travelers staying in Cancun. The main highlight is the famous El Castillo pyramid, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. However, this huge city also has other jaw-dropping structures like the Observatory and the Temple of the Warriors. The only downside: You can’t climb on these structures.

Coba

Less than three hours from Cancun, the ancient Mayan city of Coba is built around two lagoons. Adventurous travelers fall in love with Coba for its gorgeous jungle scenery and climbable temples. The entire site covers a large area, and bikes are available for rent so you can easily explore the entire city.

Scuba-di

Much of the unspoiled beauty of the worlds lives below the surface of the water. Underneath lightly rippling waves is a world of colorful coral and active marine life. A snorkel trip is a fun way to ensure you see the wonders of underwater.

Go deeper with an Ocean Scuba Diving adventure and swim alongside reefs, tropical fish, sea turtles, and more! No matter your experience level, treasures of the deep await you at every turn, letting you experience an underwater environment from a unique vantage point only achieved through scuba.

Nature and wildlife lovers can get up close with these beautiful animals and directly contribute to the cause of elephant conservation Thailand. Feed them and take the opportunity to bathe with baby elephants.

  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Discover the lifestyle of indigenous people at an aboriginal settlement
  • Grab an opportunity to bathe with baby elephants if the river condition is safe
