Reader Talkback Thailand Results: What is your favorite actual tourist attraction in Thailand?

The following is our exclusive weekly feature in which we ask our readers a news topical question and then give you a week to answer it on our various channels, compiling a diverse range of answers and opinions to present to you, our valued readers. Here are the results from our last question…

Last week, we asked you the following:

What is your favorite actual tourist attraction in Thailand?

Some context around this question:

  We often do “serious” questions but this week we want our readers to tell us their favorite places to visit or go and keep in mind people coming on a holiday for the first or second time. We know many may name bars or similar places, but we would really like our readers to think “outside of the box” and places to visit for all tourists.

Here is what you, our readers, had to say as our editors selected some of the most diverse responses to highlight different points of view. Obviously, we can’t post everyone’s opinion here so selected a variety of the most diverse opinions. As always, the opinions and statements below are the reader’s own and may not reflect those of TPN media. There have been minor edits for spelling and grammar only:


Dennis – One of my favorite things to do is take my wife, kids, and family to Beach Road in Pattaya and look at the heart-shaped light display. we can look for hours and we walk through them many times (once I even walked through them backward). We love taking selfies and I have hundreds that I would be happy to send to anyone. One time we all fell asleep and when we woke up we couldn’t find my mother-in-law. We later found her dancing in a club on LKMetro. She made big tips.
Another thing I enjoy doing is trying to explain to Thais what is Sarcasm. This can go on for hours


Howard M – Any of the great golf courses we have close to town


James – The Candle Festival in Ubon Ratachani


Hugh C – Koh Samet


Brian B –

Wat’s with extravagant statues and building structures, Sanctuary of Truth as an example.
It takes hours to walk and look at the art pieces.
Mikey I – Nong Nooch Gardens, it’s very enjoyable.
Paulina – Ramayana water park, is great for a day out, kids LOVE it!
Darren R – Koh Chang
Harris I – The hell wat in Bangsaen, full of statues killing each other
S. D. – Before Covid, I thought the Kaan show was great in Pattaya. I miss it.
Carl R – I hate to say it but I never leave the bars long enough to see tourist places. I’ve never even seen Koh Larn or the malls.
