They say travelling is a spiritual experience. To seek out destinations, to connect with them from within and to interpret a place could be a once-in-a-lifetime high. Thailand is one such place where culture and spirituality come together. A holiday like this could do you a world of good and help foster peace of mind.                                   




1. Big Buddha Temple, Koh Samui

Locally well-known as the Wat Phra Yai, this 12 meter seated Buddha statue was built way back in 1972 and remains one of the island’s most popular attractions. It can be seen at a distance of several kilometres and is one of the first landmarks people see when they arrive in Samui.

The spiritual significance of the statue is Buddha’s journey to enlightenment where he subdued the obstacles thrust at him by the devil-figure Mara, by meditating and remaining calm.

You can achieve a similar state of mind when you travel and dispel all worries by opting to get your trip insured before you travel.

HolidayIQ traveller S.M.Bega Raaj “Absolutely Blissful! One of few places where entry is free. Big Buddha is huge and brilliant. The whole place and the panoramic views all around are stunning. When we sat in silence after completing all the prayers, we were at absolute peace and felt completely relaxed.”

2. Tiger Cave Temple, Krabi

One should add the Tiger Cave Temple to their itinerary if they want to travel to go to a spiritual spot with great views. The Tiger Cave Temple was named this because apparently, a tiger used to stay here and is famous for the tiger’s paw prints.

A beautiful golden Buddha statue is found at this shrine and it sits at the 2,000-foot peak. You have to climb 1260 steps to reach the summit. The stairs are cuddled by lush jungle terrain on both sides and when you reach the top, it’s tranquillity all around.

By getting your trip insured before you even reach the temple would let you achieve a sense of serenity. So your peace of mind stays throughout the entire trip.

HolidayIQ traveller Amit says “Wonderful and memorable time here! I liked Krabi best because it’s a small town, fully green and very peaceful. People here are courteous and the beaches are less crowded. It’s a good place to relax.”

3. Wat Pho, Bangkok

Wat Pho in Bangkok remains one of the most spiritual structures in Thailand. The most prominent feature of this temple is the reclining Buddha. It was built in 1848. The Buddha is 46 meters long and 15 meters high.

The locals gather at this temple to pray and meditate. The stunning surroundings at this noteworthy site would give you some peace and quiet, regardlessly.

When you’re in a spiritual space, you wouldn’t want anything coming in the way of your zen. So, get insurance for your trip and know that with that, it’s possible to keep your vacation going smooth and peaceful.

HolidayIQ traveller Arnav says “Amazing architecture and peaceful environment. Built-in 1832, the sleeping Buddha statue is a stunner. The soles of the feet of the Buddha are 3m high and 4.5 m long and inlaid with mother-of-pearl. They are each divided into 108 arranged panels, displaying the auspicious symbols.”

4. Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai

Legend has it, a relic from Gautam Buddha’s bone was tied to the back of a white elephant. This elephant climbed the Doi Suthep and died. It was at this very spot the temple was built.

You would have to climb 309 steps to reach this symbolic temple. Once you reach the top, be prepared to see some breathtaking panoramic views of Chiang Mai.

A temple with such interesting history deserves your undivided attention. Make sure you keep your mind clear and your trip insured, so nothing disrupts your harmony.

HolidayIQ traveller Davidson says “A must-visit place in Thailand. Chiang Mai has a lot of historical significance. A whole lot of Buddhist temples dot this place. The place is very clean.”

Get your trip insured and feel powerful from the very start. So, go for a spiritual trip with positive energy and help spread it for a surreal holiday experience.

HolidayIQ traveller Apoorva Bhardwaj says “Thrill of this experience is unparalleled. Rightly called the seat of palaces and temples. The temples are intricately designed, conventionally run and spiritually inclined.”
