Thailand

Thailand is a commonly known destination for its beaches, but there is so much more that this country has to offer than its tropical coasts and warm waters. In this article, you will be told of the most exciting locations to visit (according to your personality, of course) in order to make the most of your upcoming visit to Thailand. Along the coastal areas, you will find quiet towns from which you’ll have the luxury of watching regional fishers catching the daily bulk.

Bangkok

If you feel the need for some assistance in choosing sites to explore on your upcoming visit to Thailand, provincial manuals will show you all of the locations that you’re likely to see when on your trip. The capital of Thailand is full of large attractions, including ‘the Grand Palace’ and ‘The Reclining Golden Buddha at Wat Pho,’ for which most people try to make time. Touring the country in an air-conditioned vehicle from site to site is the most common way for tourists to become familiar with the area. Just the same, we have established a new method of tourism that reveals each focal point of Bangkok in different ways by traveling the area as would the locals. With your escort, you’ll all experience taking a water taxi, jumping on a tuk-tuk, and using the BTS Sky Train for further exploration as you begin to learn of how the local residents travel within their area.

Doi Angkhang

Regarded as ‘Little Switzerland,’ the rolling peaks and rich cultivating weather of Doi Angkhang produces a wide range of produce. Near the border of Burmese, you may try renting a bicycle to thoroughly navigate over The Royal Project, which is an estate that was erected by the King to educate the village inhabitants of the alternatives to opium cultivating. Along with inhaling the fragrant aroma of roses, you can anticipate enjoying the pure flavor of strawberries, lychees, and peaches.

During your stay in Thailand, don’t forget to experience a non-conventional culture by exploring the tribes of Phumanee Hill. You will observe how they live their daily lives (like the way the women prepare food, the way the men farm the land, the way the cattle wander freely, etc.) The accommodations of the local guesthouses are slightly simple but, for people who seek a truly cultural experience, this is the perfect way to experience how a Thai tribe lives on a daily basis.

Chiang Mai

Thailand is only an hour-long flight from Bangkok, or twelve hours by train if you’d wish to marvel at the different sceneries as you travel North. Yet, the second largest city in Thailand is Chiang Mai and it is far different from Bangkok. Upon arrival, you will first take notice of the absence of many high-rise structures, a more relaxed pace, and an olden city still with its authenticity. Each dish contains a blend of tastes inspired by Chiang Mai’s distance to Laos and Myanmar, and the broad amount of hesitation allows for a chance to taste the flavorful and aromatic Northern Thai cuisine.

Krabi

You are strongly urged to visit the warm beaches and clear water around Krabi before visiting any other beach in Thailand. Your relaxing outlook of the horizon will only be interrupted by the sandstone protrusions that extend out into the water and the sandbars that separate hundreds of unoccupied landmasses. Running between Phuket and Krabi Pen Nga Bay is a great area for snorkeling and diving. An ideal means of exploring is on a four-island tour, which allows for you to travel easily between the different islands and delight in a picnic on an empty beach before returning to your hotel before dinner.

The boutique-styled Tubkaak Resort (which is just north of Krabi) can offer you a lavish pool and ocean-front room villa, but its major appeal is the ocean view. The sun sets beyond the islands of Yao Yai and Koh Yao Noi while the shadows are spreading over the water, casting purple and orange streaks throughout the atmosphere.

Ayuthaya

Ayuthaya, the old center of Siam, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is full of ancient holy places with comparable design to that of Angkor. For complete appreciation of the city’s magnificence, try going on a one-night cruise. This two-day journey on the Anantara Song (a six-wharf improved rice barge) leaves from Bangkok and travels via the Chao Phraya River. This is a convenient alternative for traveling via road and, when you arrive, the boat is secured at night so you will be able to visit the lit temples while you are dining on board.

Elephant Hills

You’ll enjoy touring each temple facility the next day by hopping on and off the tuk-tuks (locally referred to as Kermit tuk-tuks because of their color and frog faces.) Elephants are associated with Thailand, as is their conservation and education of them for foreigners. Those with whom we work provide an authentic conservation experience like at the Elephant Hills, which is in the oldest national park of Thailand (Khao Sok) in the south of the country. There are two Elephant Hills tent camps in the depths of the jungle in the heart of the public park, although they are easily accessible to several of the most popular beaches in Thailand. The main campsite lets you see the elephants in their native habitat and emphasis is placed on learning to care for these elephants (they aren’t ridden here.)

Cheow Larn

The other campsite is a ‘floating village’ on the center of the Cheow Larn lake, which is a distant location approximately 1.5 hours from the main campsite. A mere twelve lavish tents float upon the water that is safe for swimming and has a pontoon nearby for every meal. Each of these floating tents has a kayak that you can use for further exploring of the area. Every morning, you can peer through the marine layer to see the limestone rocks that extend out of the lush jungle while you listen to the sounds of the gibbons in the trees.
