If you’ve been to Thailand, you know what it means to have a proper schedule. The country is rich in beguiling destination centres. If the white sandy beaches or the relaxing all-time warm atmosphere does not win your heart, then the welcoming hospitality and the legendary Thai culture will do.
For a visitor to maximise his stay in Thailand, a proper time allocation is essential. Of course, you cannot be able to cover the whole of Thailand in a whole month, let alone a single day. However, you can get the best by visiting the significant destinations or those that embody Thailand tourism.
Below is a checklist of ten critical things to do in Thailand within 24 hours.
Have a Thai Breakfast
Unlike the western world, the real distinction between a Thai breakfast and lunch is not set on a stone. For example, in Thailand, you can eat pretty the same dish that you had for breakfast as you might eat for lunch or dinner.
However, some of the common Thai breakfast dishes include; Jok (a thick rice porridge), Thai doughnut (Pork skewers and patongo), Tom luad moo (boiled pork blood), Khao kai jeow (rice and omelette)
Visit Temple of Reclining Buddha
Wat Pho or the Temple of Reclining Buddha is a 16th-century temple. It’s the most ancient and biggest temple in the whole of Bangkok. What makes the temple intriguing is the 46m long colossal reclining Buddha. An hour should be more than enough to explore and take obligatory photographs.
Visit the Temple of Dawn
From Wat Pho, you can hire a ferry to get you across the Chao Phraya River to visit the impeccable Wat Arun or the Temple of Dawn. The temple displays an imposing and glittery effect during the day.
Head to the Wat PhraKaew
This is last temple destination to break the monotony. This temple happens to be the most sacred in the whole of Thailand. Inside the temple, the Emerald Buddha is a must-see feature. One thing to note is that no sandals or shorts are allowed as the temple is the most sacred.
Have the Real Taste of Thailand

Thailand is known to have the best massage and pampering techniques. Interestingly, the message is carried out in the streets and salons by crazy “Doctor Fishes” in small tanks that eat the dead skin follicles.
Head out to the bar
One way of spending your evening is by going to the local bars for a drink or two. Bangkok has an array of high-end bars that offers premium services with both local and international artists performing on the stage.
