Do you want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok and take your kids and parents to find inspiration around Bangkok, without paying special attention to the sights, just a cup of coffee by the roadside, a night in the mountains, or just looking at the scenery along the way? Then we recommend you a few good places around Bangkok, each has its own wonderful.
Prakan is perhaps the closest province to Bangkok and is easily accessible by light rail from Bangkok. The Erawan Museum is perhaps best known to outsiders for its pink building, S-shaped ornate embossed pink and white staircase and colorful ceiling glass, making it a photo spot for girls.
The most recommended place is Th e Ancient City, which was opened by King Rama IX of Thailand and Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, and is the largest open-air museum in Asia, with Thailand's most famous pagodas, temples and monuments displayed in miniature.
If you want to return to nature, we recommend going to Bangpu Recreation Center, which is the closest sea to Bangkok. From December to March every year, seagulls gather here for the winter, and it is very relaxing to take a walk along the coastline at sunset with the beautiful sunset.
Nakhon Pathom may be unfamiliar to you, but Wat Samphran, the internet pink temple with the green dragon wrapped around it, is in Nakhon Pathom. The dragon body on this temple is hollowed out, the temple 17 floors, each floor represents a different realm, all the way up to the top floor, is where the dragon head, from here you can also have a panoramic view of the Nakhon Pathom.
The Red Lotus Floating Market is the most interesting part of Phra Tum, where you can not only enjoy boating on the lake, but also sell a variety of snacks and goods on both sides of the lake during the red lotus blooming season from December to February every year.
There are many coffee shops in Phra Tuan province, and you can't imagine the variety of experiences. For example, Bubble in the Forest is like a mini Maldives, and in front of Chanta is a vast rice field. After the Rain Coffee&Gallery is like entering a tropical jungle, where you can not only drink coffee, but also row a boat.
Phetchaburi, a city on the Myanmar-Thai border west of Bangkok, is refreshingly green. Therefore, it is also a famous place for cycling in Thailand.
When you come to Phetchaburi, how can you not experience the famous Death Railway, which was built during World War II, when many local laborers were sacrificed to build the railroad from Bangkok to Yangon, Burma.
Today the train is still in its original form, the train drives over the Oscar Award-winning bridge of the same name - the River Kwai Bridge, and after stopping here, between Tham Krasae station and Tham Krasae bridge station is the most beautiful section of the railroad, with cliffs on one side and the flowing River Kwai on the other, which is quite thrilling.
Khao Khiao National Park is located in the northeast of Bangkok, running through five Thai provinces, is the largest tropical rainforest flora and fauna reserve in Southeast Asia.
During the drive, you may encounter monkeys, deer, elephants, bison, snakes and other animals at any time. Here, you can experience the fun of trekking in the forest, Night Safari adventure led by locals, paddle through the tropical jungle within reach, or experience the majestic Haew Narok Waterfall, the largest waterfall in the park.
Racha Buri, a place with a low presence compared to other attractions, hides Thailand's super spectacular light show - Nasatta Light Festival.
The light show is held at Nasatta Cultural Heritage Park from December to January every year. The darkness of the night is lit up by the various shapes of the light show, and you may be able to walk along the starlit walkway or make a New Year's wish in the lotus lamp with the Buddha as the background.
Or take a photo in front of the lighted waterfall. The colorful lights all over the place, with Thai architecture and lush trees, makes you feel like you are in a fairyland. This is the perfect time to put on a Thai costume and take pictures.
Alpaca Hill is a fantastic farm with geese, ostriches, kangaroos, deer and other animals in captivity, where kids can run around on the grass, swing, feed the goats and interact with the animals.
