There are 10 unusual places in Thailand to go
If it comes to discovering Thailand, most of us think we have seen it all. As one of the most frequented holiday resorts in Southeast Asia, it is very seldom to find places that are not known. As a fan of travelling and adventures, although I like to see some of the most loved touristic sites, what I like the most is to explore places off the well-trodden paths.
Following a long journey and an extended stay in Thailand, here are some places that are well deserved to be included in your route. Sam Phan Bok, also known as the Grand Canyon of Thailand, is situated in the wonderful Ubon Ratchathani near Laos.
In contrast to the Grand Canyon in Chiang Mai, Sam Phan Bok is a nature reserve consisting of distinctive terrain and a small canal. The majority of visitors suggest a visit during the arid period (December-June) to see the many cavities and marks that can be seen when the waters are low.
Situated near the city of Song Khon, 75 km from Khong Chiam on Highway 2112. Whereas most of Thailand's monasteries consist of golden, gemstones and jewellery, Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew is one of a kind because it consists of several thousand and more.
Whilst I would like to say that the template was constructed after a one-year long epoxy battleground of Bierpong, the realities are in 1984, a group of friars got weary of the garbage and garbage near their area. In order to encourage the local people to recycle, they encourage them to bring their own recyclable water bottle to build this beloved monolith.
Featuring Chang Bay beers and Heineken Emerald Bottle, the Buddhist friars built this imposing sanctuary of nearly 1.5 million acres. And if you ever visit, you can't help but marvel at the craft and devotion of the friars in the construction of this one-of-a-kind Temples group.
Situated in the Khun Han area of Si Saket province. From Si Saket you can reach us on Highway 211 (direction Amphoe Phayu and Phrai Bueng). Editorial note: Travelling through Thailand? Have a look at our full Thailand travel guide with the best accommodation, food and activities.
An excursion to Udon Thani is a must if you ever want to see a rainbow of rose and reddish lots! The Nong Han in Udon Thani is clouded with thousand of lily trees every year in January, reaching as far as the eye can see. Because of the abundance of rose and reddish roses, this place is very much loved on Valentine's Day weekends.
Situated near the province of Udon Thani, you can visit the Kumphawapi area between Udon Thani and Khon Kaen. Udon Thani Airport is about 50 km from the water. It' a pleasure to visit intriguing places, especially if they have a strange legend. Off the Koh Lipe coastline, you can rent a long sail yacht and visit Koh Hingham, an inhabited pebble islet.
As a joke, the National Parks offices receive a dozen of rocks every year, which are sent back by post by those who want to lift the spell. The Erawan National Parks is situated in the province of Kanchanaburi and is visited by local population. The path from the parking lot to the seven floors begins shallow and mostly cobbled up to the first cascade.
Usually the area is very crowded on the weekend and on bank holiday, so we suggest a visit during the day to prevent the rush. Every section of the waterfalls has different characteristics, so a visit to them all is something I can definitely do. Many signposts point to this beloved travel destinations.
When you want to see something really extraordinary, Thailand has its own special edition of the Stone Henge. In Chaiyaphum, this place has a plethora of natural reserves to explore. As it is not visited by many people, the local people here are not as exhausted by tourists as most places in Thailand.
Please be aware that most Thai nature reserves charge double prices for local and foreign visitors. Chaiyaphum's capital is 333 kilometres from Bangkok. For further exploration, drive to Khao Yai Nationalpark. Situated in the famous city of Krabi, Sra Morakot is a daily excursion to which we invite everyone.
Whilst Krabi's shores are difficult to withstand, rely on me when I say that a visit to this charming green basin is definitely a worthwhile experience. The Sra Morak is about 60 km outside Krabi City and another 15 km from the sands. 112 kilometres from Chiang Mai is the city of Lampang.
Whilst the exploration of the city could be a lot of enjoyment, the climax of the place is the Chaloem Phra Kiat Phrachomklao Rachanusorn Temples compound (whew, what a mouth full!). Situated on a cliffy promontory, this temples are a wonderful view. A Songthaew (local blue denim trucks) will take you from Lampang to this beloved tourist destination.
Encircled by luxuriant woods and shrubs, this sanctuary is quite extraordinary and deserving of a visit. Not far from Surathani province, you can see these avatar-like peaks as you drive along the Ratchaprapha dam. Coming from downtown Surat Thani you can hire a motorcycle or a vehicle and take Highway 401 towards Ban Ta Khun District (about 42 km).
Located directly at the Mae Wong National Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand is this extraordinary country location and touristic destination named Pha Chor. Whilst I could always talk about other places in Thailand that are definitely deserving a visit, here are some jewels that are not usually part of the tour.
