Khao Sok National Park

Khao Sok National Park is a jungle reserve in Southern Thailand. It is one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves in Thailand. Walking is the primary mode of transportation, as the road to the park is only 2 km and the farthest one can walk into the park is about 20 km. Tours can include tubing down the river, caving, kayaking, and zipline riding in the forest canopy. Many tours will include drinks, food, and/or basic accommodation. Ask your guide in advance about dietary concerns (vegetarian or “jeh” for example), if lunch is to be provided for you on the tour. Doing any 2-4 day tour in the national park will easily please any traveler. Your guesthouse can easily help set you up. Choosing a tour that involves at least one night in a floating raft house in the national park lake is an unforgettable experience.

Visit the jungle cave temple. Go hiking in the national park by yourself or by hiring a local guide. The trails inside the park are well marked and there are several waterfalls on the way. From January to February it’s possible to find the world’s biggest flower, the Rafflesia blossom. This is a perfect place for any adventurer to visit.

Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and really means ‘city of angels’. Bangkok is by far the most densely populated city in Thailand with about 12 million people. Bangkok was a small trading post near the mouth of the Chao Phraya River during the Ayutthaya Kingdom in the 15th century. But as we said, temples will surely be one of the most interesting things you will find and have opportunity to learn there. Hotels are also very hospitable and you can find them from most luxurious to solid price you can enjoy. Remember that the main thing is to be happy and satisfied with the time you spent.

Phi Phi Islands in Thailand

Take a break from your obligations and have a peaceful vacation in the Phi Phi islands. The beauty of this destination is in its mixed up nature, from fascinating white sand beaches over crystal water to various wild forests. It is like in paradise, the only thing you need to do is relax.

Phi Phi is a small archipelago in Krabi Province, Southern Thailand and it is made up of six islands by the names of:
Ko Phi Phi Don - The largest and most populated island.
Ko Phi Phi Leh - Little bit less populated island. Uninhabited apart from bird nest harvesters and a few Maya Bay wardens; expect plenty of tourists during daylight hours, especially in Maya Bay, also known as ‘the beach’.
Ko Mai Phai - (‘Bamboo Island’), a small low-lying islet to the north of Phi Phi Don with several good beaches.
Ko Yung - is north of Ko Phi Phi Don. The island has a stone beach in the east and small sandy beaches at the foot of the hills. It is teeming with various kinds of colourful coral reefs.
Bida Nok and Bida Nai - two small adjacent limestone karsts to the south of Phi Phi Leh, with near-vertical cliff walls rising from the sea.

Tourism on Ko Phi Phi, like the rest of Krabi province, has exploded only very recently. In the early 1990s only the most adventurous travelers visited the island, staying only in the most basic accommodations. Nowadays, however, the place has turned into one of the major destinations for visitors of Thailand. Also have in mind that this is not some luxurious place to be in, you would be surprised by how much you can do with a little cash in your pocket
