We will be visiting the town of Caing Rai, which was founded in the XIII-century and sustained independence until the XVII-century, at which point it became a part of Thailand. This is the town where, in the first half of the XVI-century, the emerald figurine of Buddha was found – this figurine was later transported to the capital. Apart from exploring the temples, we would also like to offer a tour of the so-called Golden Triangle – it is a place, where the borders of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos meet – the name comes from the huge economic benefits of the site of opium trade once located there.
Hua Hin – the secret corner of Thailand
Hua Hin is the oldest and, at the same time, most popular tourist resort agglomeration of Thailand – and not because of the foreign tourists, but because of the locals, especially from Bangkok. It is located in the Prachuap Khiri Khan region, about 200 kilometers from the capital, and lures the locals in mostly with its clean, sand beaches surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand and, of course, the lack of foreign tourists. Hua Hin is considered the ideal place for a family vacation or a weekend getaway trip. It has everything you could possibly need as a tourist: a wide, 5 kilometer beach, exotic flora, proper tourist infrastructure with luxurious, five-star hotels and resorts located just by the beach and a lot of other attractions, which won’t leave you bored.
