Practice yoga by the riverside, meditate on the top of a waterfall located deep in the lush jungle, or take a boat ride to remote and unexplored islands. Immerse yourself in your spiritual practice by visiting one of the many exquisitely decorated temples; listening to soulful Mantras and practicing meditation techniques with some of the oldest Buddhist monks in Southeast Asia. The beautiful country of Thailand has really inspired our yoga school based in India to extend our yoga classes here.


During your stay in Thailand, the following visiting places should definitely not be missed.


Phang Nga Bay

Phang Nga Bay is one of the most picturesque places in Thailand. Well, all you want to do is dive into emerald green water. Phang Nga Bay has a popular island called Khao Phing Khan also known as James Bond Island (as part of the Bond film, the man with the golden gun was filmed here). One of the most important scenes of the film showed a vision of a sea pile called Ko Tapu, which is now very famous among tourists. Other attractions of the bay include water caves, limestone caves where you can also kayak and explore the roofs of clastic rock.


Grand Palace, Bangkok

At sunset, the golden pagodas light the city of Bangkok. A visit to the capital of Thailand without a visit to the Grand Palace is similar to that of not paying a visit to the Taj Mahal when in Agra. Hidden in the walled complex, the Grand Palace is a famous attraction that attracts tourists from all corners. Located on the banks of the Chao Phraya river, the complex houses a number of rooms, halls, aqueducts, and other buildings, mixed in with the courtyards and lush gardens. It offers a picturesque setting, perfect for taking breathtaking photographs. The famous attraction in the surroundings is the Emerald Buddha Temple, which is located on the left as soon as you enter the main entrance of Visetchaisri.


Ayutthaya Historical Park, Ayutthaya

The Historical Park of Ayutthaya exhibits the ruins of the largest cities in the world. What is so interesting about this place is that it shows brilliant examples of Thai art and today, a section of this historical site is under UNESCO protection. Other attractions in the Historic Park of Ayutthaya include Wat Ratchaburana, Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, Wat Mahathat, wiharn Phra Mongkhon Bopit and Wat Phra Ram .The main attraction here is the head of the Buddha that comes from the branches of a tree, this is probably the most photographed in the park together at Wat Yai Chai Mongkol. However, this restored city allows visitors to experience a wide range of architectural styles .


Markets of Thailand

The markets in thailand are popular for their variety in food items, crafts, souvenirs, jewellery, clothing, accessories, shoes and sometimes even technological products available at reduced prices. Thai markets are a lively cultural experience and thrive on local art, crafts and products. The markets are also home to some of the funniest offers you’ll ever experience. The Thais are bold in nature and like to test their limits by haggling for the best price. For many, thai local markets are their only form of income, and while haggling is fun and easy to carry away, be sure to remain courteous and respectful of your business. Visitors should also be aware that many of the products with the “brand” sold in these markets are fake and although they may look similar, they should not expect the same quality or pay prices close to what they expect to pay for the original article. Visitors should also monitor the return policy of any supplier, in particular if they are purchasing electronic goods


Cultural Identity

Much of Thailand’s culture comes from Thai ethnicity.  One of the most important influences on Thai culture is Buddhism. Many of the traditions and beliefs of the Thai people have been derived directly from Buddhist principles.  Hinduism has also made important contributions to Thai culture, and the close links between Thailand and India can be seen in art, literature and many Thai customs. Although family life and Thai society are traditionally dominated by men, women are given considerable respect. Laws, and recent laws have allowed women to abandon traditional roles and engage in professions such as politics, medicine and business. In recent decades, respect for and equality of women’s rights have become an important part of Thailand’s legislation and values.

Meditation & Mantra Chanting

Mantras – Sound vibrations that permeate every cell of your being and allow your mind to dissolve and repose. Meditation is that which gives you deep rest. Meditation is an activity in which the practitioner just sits and allows the mind to dissolve. The rest in meditation is deeper than the deepest sleep that you can ever have. When the mind becomes free from agitation, is calm and serene and at peace, meditation happens.


The “prana” creates an aura around the body. It flows through thousands of subtle energy channels called ‘nadis’ and energy centers called ‘chakras’. The quantity and quality of prana and the way it flows through the nadis and chakras determines one’s state of mind. If the prana level is high and its flow is continuous, smooth and steady, the mind remains calm, positive and enthusiastic.


Ayurveda is ancient knowledge that indicates the very measure of life, advising on the appropriate and inappropriate, happy and sorrowful conditions of living, and recommending practices auspicious for longevity.
