Top 5 Places to Visit in Thailand This Summer

1. Singha Park, Chiang Rai Province

You don’t have to wait for winter to visit Chiang Rai, Singha Park located 19 mins away from Chiang Rai city centre welcomes everyone looking to relax on the rice fields and have the chance to take some amazing pictures. A family-friendly destination in Chiang Rai’s countryside, along with a lovely park where you may spend your mornings or afternoons.

The farm is now more known for its oolong tea production, and tours of the park allow tourists to observe how the tea is produced and meticulously chosen. Trails, lakes, and meadows have all been sympathetically landscaped in the park, making it a desirable destination for Chiang Rai residents. Other activities you can participate in to make the most out of your trip include cycling, farm tour, rock climbing, adventure rope course, and ziplining – with a spectacular view of Doi Chiang (Chiang Mountain). The petting zoo will also keep children entertained!

Singha Park also doesn’t leave you without choices for places to eat and drink. There are many great restaurants to choose from that offer Western and Thai food, with delicious specialities from Northern Thailand.

2. Klong Sa Kaeo, Krabi Province

“Klong Sa Kaeo” is a famous natural attraction in Krabi that is perfect for relaxing in the summer. Klong Sa Kaew is also known as “The Amazon River” of Krabi. It’s a swath of jungle situated on a river with crystal clear water which therefore makes it ideal for swimming and canoeing. The highlight of this place that makes it beautiful and unique are the 7 ponds that surround the jungle. There you can rent canoes where you go straight into the bush.

Located 18 Kilometers from Ao Nang beach, upon entry there a small stall will be waiting where you must pay the 80 Baht admission fee, as well as some food vendors and parking space.

3. Pha Taek Waterfall, Ranong Province

For people who appreciate trekking and adventure, Pha Taek Waterfall located in Khao Laem National Park is a must-see. Throughout the year, the gorgeous limestone waterfall flows with crystal pure water. When you swim in the waterfall, you may observe a variety of unusual fish since it is so fresh and clean.

The waterfall is around a 6 kilometres hike from Khao Laem National Park and the hills can be quite steep so therefore they only accept a limited number of tourists per trip, reservations will have to be made in advance.
