If you’re looking to get out of Bangkok, there are plenty of options to stay active outside of the capital. The Hua Hin Sunset Half Marathon 2018 on August 18 is the perfect way to combine seaside holiday with healthy lifestyle, and the popular Hua Hin Food Festival from August 17-26 only adds to the attraction. The festival will see the city’s streets lined with food stalls and the city morph into a food heaven. Further south in Songkhla, the Songkhla International Glorify Marathon 2018 kicks off for the 18th time on August 28, while in Tak Province, the Bhumibol Dam International Mountain Bike Championship 2018 celebrates its 17th anniversary this year with two days of biking events from August 25-26, 2018.
