Thailand is one of my fave countries. From the kind, warm people to the delicious food to the breath taking natural beauty in old Siam, Kelli and I have lived in Thailand for over a year during our current 52 month world tour.

If you want to know what fun Thai things you should add to your bucket list….

1: Get Attacked by Lady Boy Whores in Bangkok

It’s a bit unorthodox but I suggest everybody gets stalked and grabbed at least once by lady boy prostitutes in BKK. Fun for the whole family! This link explains….

2: Enjoy Stunningly Beautiful Koh Lanta

From dipping into the gorgeous Andaman Sea on the southern end of the island (go South my lads and ladies! Best beaches on Lanta are off of the well beaten travel path), to watching monstrous thunderstorms assail the home we rented, to seeing the stunning sunrises every day on the bay in Old Town, we had a blast in Koh Lanta. No flying into Lanta; you take a ferry, smaller boat or a car ferry. This keeps tourist numbers down.

We visited the national park, spotted rare dusky langur monkeys, observed monstrously large monitor lizards all over the island, enjoyed watching mud skippers slop through the low tidal goop and feasted on about the best mixed vegetable green curry I’ve ever eaten, at a little stall in Old Town.

Spend a month on Koh Lanta. Fab spot!

3: Watch a Movie….Anywhere

I recall our first movie in Thailand; we caught a flick at Jungceylon Mall in Patong, Phuket. All rose before the film. I wondered why? 2 seconds later I saw a montage of the King. Then I knew why.

The King is revered by all in Thailand. Before every movie all theater goers stand up to pay their respects to him. This is a fun, authentic and special experience that doesn’t occur in too many places these days.

4: Take a Dip at Nai Harn Beach in Phuket during High Season

My fave beach in the world is Nai Harn Beach. It’s one of the prettier beaches I’ve visited too. Imagine a horseshoe-shaped cove, turquoise water and a *coconut and palm tree dense* jungle enveloping the beach. During a select few high season days the Andaman Beach becomes a bath in these parts. Barely a ripple in the water; forget ever seeing a wave.

Note; the water isn’t quite as peaceful if the odd storm cruises through the Andaman Sea, high or low season. Keep an eye out for rip currents during these times. Fun activity for thrill seekers!

5: Spend a Month in Pak Nam Pran

Pak Nam Pram is a tiny resort town located a few hours south of Bangkok. Picture a playground for the well-heeled folks of BKK. I spotted 4 Lamborghinis cruising by the beach during our first day in PNP.

Pak Nam Pran is fun because it is a Thai community; tourist sightings at the beach are rare. From the town’s beauty, to the peace and quiet of an off the beaten path spot, to the ample bird activity/wildlife, Pak Nam Pran is a must add to your travel list.

Hua Hin is a 40 minute motorbike ride away if you want a taste of city life. Spend a day lazing by the Gulf of Thailand or visit nearby Sam Roi Yot National Park to enjoy dramatic scenery.

  1. Yep Uttoran, it is the same sea, except you may have visited from the side closer to India. Awesome islands indeed. Will do my friend.

  2. Uttoran Sen Says:

    Hey Ryan,

    Good to see you having fun in Thailand. Nothing better than spending some relaxed time in the beach and hear the music of the waves! I have never been to Thailand, but I have visited Andaman – wondering if the Andaman Sea looks any different from Thailand or the same – as from the Andamans!

    Do share some pictures of your favorite “Nai Harn” beach, would love to see how it looks,

    Uttoran Sen,

  3. They are SO big on offering respect to the king Adeel. Thanks for reading, commenting and sharing!

  8. Bigwas Says:

    Lady Boy’s in Thailand plenty? I am not aware of that, its nice to know.

  9. Wow I love those super wide seat James 😉 The double ones – which I saw in Phuket – were pretty cheap. Yep, 1/2 price and you’re getting so much more. Me too, always love me a Thailand trip. Thanks so much for commenting!

  10. Isn’t it fun and authentic Wayne? The seats are super duper comfy! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  11. Wayne Seto Says:

    I’d have to agree with #3, watching a movie. I would’ve never thought watching a movie would be a fun thing to do in Thailand, but it is right from the king’s anthem to the to the incredibly comfortable seats. I have to admit, this the first time I’ve seen lady boy whores make any bucket list! You’re the king Ryan! Cheers 🙂

  12. Love movies in Thailand … you can buy beer, lounge like a VIP on super wide seats and all for half of what you would spend back home for less! Can’t wait to get back to the Land of Smiles!

  13. Have you been to Thailand?
