We all know how Thailand is truly famous for its authentic massage. After walking miles and miles while exploring this beautiful country, we recommend checking out a good Thai massage. Now be careful here as the whole of Thailand is dotted with numerous massage parlors. You can ask a local for the best parlor and then head there. Go for the kind of massage which is likely to suit you best. Deep tissue Thai massage is best for those who want to get rid of the muscle soreness and feel alive and kicking.
4. The Walking Street
The walking street in Pattaya is by far the best choice for anyone who is on the lookout for the finest adult entertainment. The street stretches for nearly 2 kilometers and the whole street is dotted with innumerable bars and clubs. If you are looking to chill, drink and spend the night partying, this is surely the place to be. The street comes to life after 6 pm in the night and stays open till the wee hours of the morning.
No vehicles are allowed and people in large numbers can be spotted every day of the week. The weekend usually finds a lot more traffic as too many people even from neighboring cities head here. You can find some street shows as well. A gentle reminder to be added here is that if you are traveling with kids, it is NOT advised to take your kids here as it is a red light zone. You will find endless strip clubs here, but they are mostly safe as there is police patrolling on either side of the street.
5. Phi Phi Island
The Phi Phi islands are another one of the top touring spots in Thailand. If you have planned a vacation to Thailand, there is no way you should miss out on this. These islands are going to leave you mesmerized with their enchanting and captivating beauty. Be sure to click endless pictures because they would make your Instagram account a real rage.

6. Feeding the Tigers
This is one activity which is debatable and it is upon you to decide if you would like to indulge in it or not. A lot of people consider it inhuman because they believe that the Tigers have been drugged. However, if you do not stick to this opinion, you can head to the tiger park and feed them and even take them in your lap and have your picture clicked as well. It is a popular attraction and even children are allowed here.
So, if you have it in you to lift a tiger and make him sit in your lap and feed him a bottle of milk, this is definitely the place to be.

So, these are the top things to do in Thailand. The country is beautiful and the people are courteous. Of course, the nightlife is as wild as it can be and the place is perfect for bachelors wanting to enjoy their single life one last time before getting hitched!
