Adored around the world, Thailand is a country that promises an amalgamation of eclectic food, friendly faces, deeply rooted history, hedonistic culture, and adrenaline-pumping activities. But amidst all the cacophony of touristy places, lies a relaxed and slow Thailand that promises to rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul.
COVID has consumed a major part of our lives in the last two years bringing calamity & destruction to our otherwise simple lives. The world is finally seeing the light of the day, healing gradually. We, the survivors in the post-pandemic world desperately feel the need to get away from it all, to a place that will help our hearts and minds to heal. And no better place than Thailand – “a land that provides immersive experiences beyond the usual” to quench the thirst of our tired soul.
It is time to rejuvenate and reboot ourselves by indulging in offbeat, slow, and relaxing travel that Thailand offers to its visitors! Here’s a list of places and experiences that you can pick for your upcoming Thailand trip.
Rich in monasteries, Buddhist culture, forest, and hidden mountain trails, Chiang Mai is Thailand’s jewel in the crown for people wanting to escape city life to clean countryside living. For an even better experience, head to Chiang Dao, a small town just 80kms from Chiang Mai that offers ample opportunity to relax, interact with the local hill tribe members and taste Thai dishes that you won’t find elsewhere. The place has numerous caves, waterfalls, and hot springs that can give a holistic experience for people who visit this piece of land.
Khao Sok National Park is home to the biggest virgin rainforest in Thailand. It sits comfortably between some of the most popular tourist destinations like Krabi & Koh Samui yet is lesser-known to people who visit Thailand. This marine sanctuary has bountiful activities to do from kayaking to trekking. Even if you’re not interested in the activities, just the expanse of sprawling green islands with turquoise waters can calm your mind. Imagine waking up in treehouses amidst the gibbons and cabins alongside a picturesque royal blue lake.
Known as the mecca for scuba divers, Koh Tao boasts some of the insanely gorgeous dive sites in the world. This piece of island has been my favourite ever since I witnessed it a couple of years back. If the underwater world is your gig and your mantra to peace, then look no further, Koh Tao is your place to be.
These are offbeat places that suit any kind of traveler; from hills to forests to sea. Rejuvenate your soul by rediscovering these gems in Thailand.
While Thailand is opening up for the world, be sure to check and follow the COVID guidelines given by the Tourism Authority of Thailand for safe and secure travel.
