In this article we want to present some of the hidden places, weird attractions and unusual things of Thailand. The Asian country in addition to offering beautiful beaches and unique landscapes, has many other interesting things to see and visit.

1 - Lotus Lake

Il Lotus Lake it is a real surprise in the north east of Thailand. A large expanse of fairly normal water during most of the year, the lake transforms into a magical wonderland of pretty pink hues during the colder months. In fact, due to the picturesque beauty when the blooming lotus flowers are in full bloom, the lake has been named one of the strangest lakes in the world.



2 - The Cinema Archipelago

It is not the first floating cinema in the open air that has ever existed, but it is certainly the one located in the most splendid position. The audience stands in the middle of a serene lagoon Straits of Malacca. The vision is accompanied by the rocking of the sea, while watching the floating screen on the horizon.

3 - Wang Saen Suk

Just outside of central Bangkok, on the way to Pattaya, there is a garden full of statues depicting what is supposed to be a Buddhist hell. After passing a “Welcome to Hell!” Sign, visitors encounter statues of sinners boiled in copper cauldrons or sinners torn apart by the dogs of hell. Despite its peculiarity, the garden is very visited by families.

4 - The Erawan Waterfalls and Caves

They are a series of seven waterfalls that flow over graceful limestone terraces. They are the main attraction of the Erawan National Park, and known as among the most beautiful waterfalls in Thailand.



5 - Tempio Wat Rong Khun

In a nation full of temples like Thailand, the temple Wat rong khun it is the one that most distinguishes itself from the others. Known as the White Temple, Wat Rong Khun is located in northern Thailand near Chiang Rai. It stands out for its white color and the use of pieces of glass in the plaster that make it sparkle in the sun.

6 - The temple of Wat Samphran

It is rarely featured in guides and is noticeably removed from typical tourist routes. Details such as when it was built, who designed it, or why this historic tower is in the clutches of a huge and beautiful dragon are nowhere to be found. Travelers who have come across the temple on their travels describe it as slightly run-down, but filled with extraordinary statues and shrines, including a bronze statue of the giant Buddha.


7 – Wat Mahathat

It is one of the oldest temples in Bangkok and home to the largest monastic order in Thailand. The ancient temple of Wat Mahathat was founded in the 18th century, even before the founding of Bangkok (1782). But it has been significantly changed over the years, most notably by the young Prince Mongkut who would later become King Rama IV of Thailand.


8 – Il Sathorn Unique Tower

It is among Thailand's most important construction projects, which began when the economy was booming in the 1990s. The creators of the project envisioned a city of gleaming office buildings and residential apartments that were to be a testament to the nation's rapid development.

Il Sathorn Unique Tower it has a creepy vibe, with the exposed infrastructure giving it a post-apocalyptic feel. According to a blogger, the abandoned chambers were filled with curious objects, such as mannequins and a photo of the king. Locals say the building is haunted.
