Cultural & Religious

Thailand s most predominant religion is Buddhism, with a hint of Hindu and ancient Bhramin influence. Therefore one can expect to find lots of Buddhist temples all over Thailand, and all temples will have a very distinctive feel that is uniquely Thai. All Buddhist temples welcome any worshippers as well as casual visiting observers. Visitors to temples should be mindful to put on conservative clothing, i.e., shirt, long pants, and shoes for men, and unexposed blouse, below the knee pants or skirts for women. Public displays of affections should be limited to just hand holding.

Learned visitors to Thailand may appreciate temple visits for the opportunity to, if not only to worship, then inasmuch to soak in the scenic view of the unique cultural environment, as well as to appreciate the fact that the temples designs, cultures, and practices is reflective of the unique blend of the influences such as Thailand geographic locations between China and India, Thailand s history as a trading center where Europeans, Indians, Chinese, and South East Asian traders meet, and also Thailand s populations comprising of early settlers before 1800s (local Thai), and later settlers from China, India and Europe.

Some visitors interested in learning about some aspects of Thai culture may look into participating in short courses in meditation (available in English at Wat Pho), Thai massage, or Thai cooking. Famous religious and cultural venues near to Budacco are the Erawan Four Face Buddha Shrine, and the Suan Pakkard Palace Museum.

Massage & Spa

There are many (more than 30) massage shops all around Budacco. They are generally well- enjoyed by Budacco s visitors as a good way to freshen up and getting rid of the sores after a long day of sightseeing and shopping. Kids may enjoy the fish spa, where swam of little fish nib on the dead skin cells on ones ankles and feet, resulting in tingling sensation during the session, and a lighter feel after that.

We cannot recommend exactly which massage places are best because different guests have different preferences, and the skills of the massager vary individually, not according to the shop. However, we will recommend 2 rules of thumb: (1) choose a place that looks well managed, clean, and have hospitable staffs, and (2) look out or inquire about massage therapist certifications, usually on display near the front of the shop. If you follow these 2 rules, you can be sure that you have found a properly trained massage therapist.
