Also known as 'Khao Chi Chan' and 'Laser Buddha', this gold leaf filled Buddha engraving is one of Thailand's best known landmark attractions. The 130-meter-tall by 70-meter-wide image can be seen from miles away, but to truly appreciate it, you should see it from close.
Some information regarding food, travel and accommodation in Thailand.
Thailand being an international tourist destination, there is a lot of vegetarian and non vegetarian food options available. So that should not be an issue. Stores like 7/11 are also a good option for quick bites like sandwiches and these stores are there almost everywhere.
Thailand is well-connected by Air, train and roadways. The best and the cheapest option to travel around Bangkok is via the BTS and MRT train service. They are available right from the Airport to most of the places. I would suggest you to take a day pass to roam around. The next best option is to rent a 2 wheeler.
Like Uber, Thailand has Grab taxi, the app which can be downloaded from the Playstore or Appstore.
In places other than Bangkok, you can either travel via Flight or book trains. Trains has been convenient and economical for me.

From my year’s of travel experience, AirBnb has been my companion for booking Accomodation. Thailand has really good options for stays from as low as USD10 and these are really good when it comes to cleanliness and facilities.
1. Always get your currency exchanged to Thai Bahts. You can also withdraw cash from ATMs but comes at a cost. Typically around $3 flat per transaction. Please refer to your bank’s policy regarding the same.
2. The beaches of Thailand are typically humid so carry sunscreen lotions and drink plenty of water.
3. Thailand is very particular about their culture. So be very considerate.
4. Do not litter. Keep he places clean (applies wen you travel anywhere)
Hope this helps you to plan a trip to the less crowded parts of Thailand.
