Thailand is one of those places everyone seems to have been to but me. That’s not for lack of want to go there though. I’ve spent plenty of time flicking through travel brochures, browsing blogs and Pinning pretty pictures, so I’ve compiled a bit of a bucket list of things I’d love to do there already. And if you want to get out there and experience Thailand for yourself, you could WIN a luxury trip…with 5 star hotels and flights included! Amazing.
Brightsun Travel are currently running a competition to win an amazing six night luxury holiday for two in Thailand, including flights. The winner will spend three nights at the 4-star Furama-Silom Hotel in Bangkok and 3 nights in a villa at the 5-star Vijitt Resort Phuket. Amazing, right?
Enter your details here for a chance to win!
As part of the competition, Brightsun are asking you guys to pick your top three experiences of things you’d love to do in Thailand. Even though I can’t enter myself (boooo), to give you some inspiration, here are my own three picks….
‘James Bond’ Island Tour
In Phang Nga Bay, near Phuket, you’ll find the Ko Tapu rock formation – most recognisable from its appearance in James Bond movie ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’. Take an adventure around the bay by boat to see it up close by boat. As well as living the spy life as you cruise along in a speedboat, a visit to Phang Nga Bay is a chance to check out loads of the islands, rock formations and caves in the area.
Watching some Muay Thai boxing
After watching some live NXT shows at Download festival, my reignited interest in watching people fight each other is definitely alive and well. Muay Thai boxing is a traditional Thai combat sport, known as “the art of eight limbs”. With music, ritual, bright lights and action, seeing this sport take place in its home country would definitely be pretty epic.
Shopping at a floating market
Honestly, I don’t tend do a lot of shopping on holiday – unless it involves markets, and then I’m all over every stall and chance to haggle that I can find. Plenty of floating markets can be found near Bangkok, selling fruit, veggies, local food and crafts. You can either wait for the boats to come to you on the shore, or hire a boat yourself and get stuck in to find the best deals!
If you’ve entered the comp (which you 100% should), let me know what your top three choices would be in the comments. Fingers crossed for you, fabulous readers!
