Khao Yai National Park, Nakhon Ratchasima Province

This is a stunning natural area near Bangkok that you must see. The capital is just a three-hour drive from the UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful national parks in Thailand. There are six hiking trails in the park, the difficulty of which varies from short day hikes to grueling walks that require up to three days.

Tha Lo Beach, Kanchanaburi Province

The 500-metre sandy beach of Tha Lo slopes towards the Mae Klong River. People who want to swim are encouraged to watch the crystal clear, fresh ocean water from the shoreline. In addition, the landscape is amazing, with stunning views of the mountains in the distance.

Located about 3.5 hours away from the capital, this national park has beautiful beaches, mangrove forests, freshwater wetlands, limestone karsts, trails and rich wildlife. The Phraya Nakhon Cave is the most famous attraction in the park and is definitely worth a visit.

Erawan Waterfall, Kanchanaburi province nature

This is perhaps the most beautiful and famous waterfall in Thailand. It consists of several waterfalls, most of which you can swim and dive in to cool off from the sweltering heat of the jungle. However, be careful because there are small fish there that will gladly nibble your toes.

Khun Dan Prakan Chon Dam, Nakhon Nayok province
