Cruise the Chao Phraya River on the sailing-barge, Manohra. This century old, teakwood rice barge will take you from Bangkok to the World Heritage site of Ayutthaya, Thailand’s ancient capital. You will travel along the traditional route of commerce of ancient Siam.

There are stops along the way to historical sites such as Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn. Experience the peaceful life on the “River of Kings”.

Makha Puja is a Thailand National Holiday. Held in February, this festival honors Buddha’s gathering of 1,250 disciples. The participants pay homage to the Buddha by performing good deeds like feeding the monks or releasing birds and animals from cages. After dark, the Buddhist chapels all become the site of candle-lit processions filled with flower and incense celebrants.

Amazing Thailand Vacation Idea #8:

If you are looking for a vacation idea in Thailand that is remote and practically unkown to tourists than take a visit to the Wat Tham Pha Plong Temple. This is a working Buddhist monastery located in the mountains of Chiang Dao.

The view from the temple is spectacular and even more so because of the serenity of the surroundings. This is a spiritual and peaceful place, unlike any other temple you may visit.

The monastery is inhabited only by the silent monks. It is possible to spend the night here by arranging with the monks who speak English. You can also stay in one of the bungalows at the Chiang Dao Nest.

This is located on the road to the Wat Tham Pha Plong Temple. It is also close to the Chiang Dao Cave complex which is also a great place to visit.
