There are tons of meals like Thai stink beans with shrimp, Lock tien, noodles and so much more!

But if you’re planning to watch in your hotel room before you venture out, you may have to unblock it.

You’ve survived a Tuk-Tuk ride

Tuk-tuk’s are local transportation to Thai residents. These are typically Pedicab styled “vehicles” which have three wheels.

This festival is typically filled with performers wearing masks of ghosts from their culture. Men are usually spirits in this festival and have on bright colors like yellow, red, pink and more. These ghosts are based off of religions that the residents of Thailand believe in. Don’t worry; you won’t be haunted by any ghosts by visiting this festival.

Your bungee jump went perfectly as planned

Bungee jumping is a very popular activity, especially when you go to this certain company called “Pattaya Bungy Jump & Human Slingshot”. If you love your breath being taken away and the thrill of a jump, strap up! At Pattaya, you’ll be jumping from over 60 meters high, which is approximately 180 feet! They’re also the only location that is certified and licensed in bunjee jumping, so you’ll definitely be safe at this location.

The human slingshot slings you over 40 meters or 120 feet with a g-force of 4! How incredible is that? Pattaya provides free transportation to and from your hotel as well, so if you’re too scared to concentrate and drive, they’ve got you covered!

You weren’t creeped out by a Fish Spa

Fish spas are actually pretty popular in Thailand. The fish used in the tank you dip your feet in are beneficial to you by removing dead skin. It sounds creepy, but it’s a great way to achieve a silky smooth skin texture. This particular practice is banned in North America (we wonder why), but it’s very popular in Southeast Asia. Did you try this on your trip?
