Thailand is an incredibly popular destination of vibrant cities, ancient Buddhist temples and stunning beaches. Whatever you’re searching for, you’ll find it in this land of plenty. Thailand is the most visited country of Southeast Asia, packed full of cultural and natural attractions and here are ten must-see sights in this exotic paradise:
1. Phanom Rung
A truly mystical experience awaits you on this extinct volcano as it’s the home of a Hindu shrine of incredible beauty. Sitting not far from the village of Nang Rong, the shrine was constructed back between the 10th and 13th centuries by the Khmer people. The temple is a dedication to Shiva, one of the Hindu Gods. It was built in such a way that four times a way the rays of the sun shine directly through all the doors of the shrine. These moments are celebrated with festivals which are a sight to behold and a wonderful mix of ancient custom and modern technology.
2. Khao Sok National Park
A beautiful mix of landscapes will greet you at one of Thailand’s most spectacular reserves. You’ll discover dense jungle, rivers, limestone cliffs and some amazing wildlife including elephants, bears, gibbons, deer and wild boar. A trek through this national park will take your breath away as you come across stunning waterfalls, fascinating animals, take a dip in a pool to cool down and take photos from the very best locations.
