Top Places to visit in Thailand
Here at Nature Shop we absolute love to travel and Thailand is one of our favourite places we've visited so far! Below are a few of our top places to visit if you're planning a trip to Thailand:
Lumpini Park; Silom, Bangkok
Lumpini Park is a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. More than half a million square metres big, the park is home to various flora and fauna and tonnes of water monitor lizards. A great place for a leisurely stroll or a place to chill for a few hours. The park also has an outdoor gym if you're feeling lively! Beyond the calmness of the park you can see the glimmering city skyscrapers which make for some great photos!
Kanchanaburi is a great place to visit to see culture, history and nature all in one place.
A trip to Erawan National Park is a must! A mix of lush forests, limestone hills and waterfalls, Erawan is one of the most famous national parks in Thailand. Hike the hills, take a dip in one of the many pools or take in the wildlife. Macaques are common and if you go deeper into the forest you may spot wild elephants, deer and wild boar.
If you're interested in history be sure to visit the Death Railway Bridge and the WWII Museum. After visiting the museum take the walking tour of the hellfire pass and learn about the thousands of prisoners of war that died when Japan forced them to build the infamous Death Railway to help its invasion of Burma.
If travelling to Kanchanaburi from Bangkok it's well worth stopping off at the Damneon Saduak floating market to see the traditional way of selling and buying goods in Thailand. This bustling market is a great snapshot of the exotic Thailand.
A great place to relax and take in the scenery, Krabi offers stunning white beaches, jungle and over 200 islands just of the coast. There are plenty of boat trips where you can visit the local islands.
For the more adventurous check out the Songprak River when you can go white water rafting.
Although fairly touristy Koh Samui is the perfect place for adrenaline fuelled adventures. Choose from quad biking, zip lining, scuba diving, speed boats and much more!
Koh Pha Ngan
Well known for its infamous Full Moon Party Koh Pha Ngan attracts visitors of all ages but if you're looking for a peaceful escape check out the north coast which includes quiet white sand beaches like Hat Khuat which has a very calming and serene feel.
Over 90 per cent of the island is made up of unspoilt tropical forest and we'd highly recommend taking a trip to the Phaeng Waterfall. 250m into the jungle trail you'll find the amazing waterfall and mountaintop views.
Koh Tao which means 'Turtle Island' lives up to it's name and is the destination of choice for those looking to go scuba diving. The small island is home to white sand beaches, coral reefs and a range of colourful sea creatures.
The range of beach bungalows are a great place to stay as you can literally walk down a few steps and straight into the crystal clear waters for a snorkel.
As well as scuba diving the island offers other activities such as rock climbing, abseiling, cliff jumping, hiking and sailing.
