Top 5 Places To Visit In Thailand



If you're planning on travelling around Thailand but aren't too sure where you should go, here are the top 5 places you need to see!


Thailand Islands
The islands off the coast of Thailand are famous throughout the world for their beautiful beaches, others for their gorgeous scenery and some even claimed their fame for the non-stop party atmosphere. There are three main sets of islands in Thailand. To the east of Bangkok, there are Ko Samet and Ko Chang, in the Gulf Ko Samui lie Ko Pha Ngan and Ko Tao, and in the Andaman Phuket and Ko Phi Phi. Phuket is the country’s largest and most developed island, connected to the mainland by two bridges. Ko Phi Phi is famous for the movie 'The Beach,' while Ko Tao is Thailand’s diving mecca.


Bangkok
Bangkok is a buzzing cosmopolis of high rise buildings, glittering nightclubs, bustling markets, ancient temples, magnificent palaces, and streets lined with vendors selling souvenirs and tantalising foods. While the city is sometimes described as a concrete jungle, jam-packed with noisy traffic and air pollution, Bangkok is not without its natural beauty that is seen in its remaining canals, green spaces, and flowering tropical plants. Located only 150 km from central Bangkok, you can find the beautiful Pattaya beach. This is a beautiful place to stay over the weekend.


Khao Sok National Park
Considered by many to be one of Thailand’s most beautiful wildlife reserves, the Khao Sok National Park covers jungle forests, limestone karsts, rivers and lakes in the Surat Thani province of southern Thailand. The reserve is home to some of the most amazing wildlife in Thailand such as Asian elephants, wild boar, barking deer, bears, Malayan tapirs and various monkeys breeds like Gibbons, pig-tailed macaques, and langurs. There are several trails in the park from which visitors can choose to enjoy trekking through the jungle to spot wildlife, soak under beautiful waterfalls, swim in natural pools and admire stunning vistas from elevated viewpoints.


Kanchanaburi
Located in western Thailand and admired for its beautiful scenery and accessibility to national parks and waterfalls, Kanchanaburi is best known for the Bridge over the River Kwai. Several museums and war cemeteries all present information about the city and its bridge during the 1940s Japan occupation. Outside of Kanchanaburi are several national parks, including Erawan and Srinakarind National Parks, which offer beautiful scenery, waterfalls, and even caves to visit.


Railay
Railay is a small peninsula that is only accessible by boat due to the high limestone cliffs cutting off mainland access. These cliffs attract rock climbers from all over the world, but the area is also a popular attraction in Thailand due to its beautiful beaches and quiet relaxing atmosphere. Almost every patch of buildable land fronting in the eastern and western part of the peninsula has been taken over by bungalow resorts, and development is creeping up into the forest behind. But much of the construction is hidden among trees or set amid prettily landscaped gardens.

Here are just a few areas that you might like to focus on to get the ball rolling the right direction!
Hair
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to. Now, many of us stick to very safe styles that blend into the crowd. This is why you see so many people with their natural hair shades, long locks and blunt cuts with centre partings. But why not switch things up a bit. You don’t necessarily have to shave the sides and dye your hair a wild colour. A few subtle changes can make all the difference! Consider a fringe, switching to a natural colour that doesn’t happen to b…

But have you put much thought into who you are going to travel with? Your travel companion really can make or break a trip.
