Thailand is one of the most popular destinations for holidaying Australians. It is not hard to work out why.
The country has much to offer any tourist through it’s size and diversity. Thailand is famous for Bangkok’s nightlife and shopping plus its picturesque beaches, but Thailand also boasts amazing national parks, tropical islands, the golden triangle and floating markets!
Explore Beautiful Beaches, Phuket & Tribes
Koh Li Pe has some of the most pristine beaches in Thailand. These beaches remind many of the pictures that adorn tropical island postcards. There are many beaches to visit, so it is worth your while researching the region before you embarking on your tropical adventure.
Phuket is Thailand’s largest island, and is ‘the’ tourist hot spot. There is plenty of three to five star accommodation options to choose from, so most budgets are catered for.
For the more adventurous, you can actually spend one to several days with local families and experience the traditional village life. This too will require considerable research and planning prior departing Australia.
Floating Markets, National Parks & Elephants
Wooden boats strung together, loaded with seafood, flowers, vegetables and other local produce make for amazing photography. The most visited floating market is Damnoen Saduak, hence we recommend visiting early, before the crowds build.
Kaeng Krachan is the largest national park in Thailand. It is one the best places in Thailand where tigers can be seen in wild. Search Thai national parks.com to discover information on more parks.
For a few days of elephant conservation and jungle adventure Chang Mai is a good place to start.
