This beautiful series of buildings which have been the official residence of Thailand is Bangkok’s most famous destination and has a complex grandeur and stunning mosaic detailing. The gold-tipped Grand Palace is home to the largest reclining Buddha in Thailand and can provide a very romantic experience.
Eat Chicken Feet
Thailand food makes culinary tourism all the rage with its perfect blend of salty, bitter, and spices. You can also find the chicken feet salad in the Thai establishments, although most of the vendors will use the most popular method of preparation, with feet boiled in a salted broth or deep fried. After a pedicure, the chicken gets cooked in a salted soup until it’s tender, then ingredients such as chilies and sugar are added. The chicken feet are a lively and known Thailand dish and visitors new to the country should give it a try.
Phang Nga Bay
The perfect thing to do is to enjoy a boat trip or a bus-boat tour to the sheer limestone cliffs of James Bond Island, one of the more famous spots. The province, located at the north of Phuket, is a unique site with distinctive features and emerald green water. A leisurely day trip to Koh Pannyi will ensure rewarding spectacular scenery as well, although you will certainly encounter the tourist crowds.
