Watch a ladyboy show

Thailand is famous for its ladyboy bars. Watching a ladyboy show is with no doubt one of the most shocking experiences in Thailand. It is quite hard to make a difference between a woman and a ladyboy, but there are some certain signs of the gender. If you would like to make a unique experience, don’t miss to visit a ladyboy bar.

Visit a historical park

There are several fantastic historical parks in Thailand, including Ayutthaya, Sukhothai, Phimai, Phanom Rung, Si Satchanalai and so on. The most famous and most beautiful seems to be Ayutthaya. Other fascinating historical parks are Sukhothai and Phimai. These protected areas house some of the most beautiful ruins of ancient cities, including temple ruins, sculptures, city walls and so on.
