8 Incredible Destinations in Thailand
Of course, it’s impossible to visit every single part of a country this big, so let’s talk about 8 of the most beautiful places in Thailand, to help narrow down your choices.
Thi Lo Su Waterfall, Tak Province
If you love a waterfall, you’re in for a treat with this one! Certainly, one of the most stunningly beautiful waterfalls on the planet, Thi Lo Su is a huge 300 meters high, and tumbles down a huge limestone cliff, towards the Mae Klong River below. The waterfall is situated in the Um Phang Wildlife Sanctuary, so you’re getting wildlife into your visit at the same time. UNESCO agree this is an amazing spot, and one of the most beautiful in Thailand.
Koh Bon, Similan Islands National Park
Located in the far west of the Andaman Sea, you will find an archipelago of islands, called the Similan Islands. Within that archipelago you will find Koh Bon. Remember your camera for this one! The coastline around the island is rugged and steep, but the beaches are truly divine. If you love to dive and snorkel, grab you gear and head out, as this island is famous for its colourful and diverse marine-line, including different type of shark, and manta rays.
Phu Chi Fa, Chiang Rai
The misty mountains of Northern Thailand are certainly there to be explored, and Phu Chi Fa is one of the most iconic. You’ll need to take a two-hour drive north of the large town of Chiang Rai, to the border with Laos to visit the cave. From there you will trek around 750 meters to the summit of the mountain, with members of a local tribe as your guide. As you gaze out across the misty scene before you, it’s not hard to understand why Thailand is considered so mystical, especially if you are lucky enough to visit at sunset or sunrise.
Emerald Lake, Koh Phi Phi
Sam Phan Bok, Khong River
Koh Nang Yuan Lookout, Koh Tao
Tham Lot Caves, Northern Thailand
Elephant Park, Chiang Mai
These are just eight of the most beautiful places to visit in Thailand, with countless more besides.
