If you haven’t experienced Thailand, now is the time to do it. A land of many adventures, this country in southeast Asia offers so much. From mouth-watering Thai food, to interacting with wild animals, to swimming in the clearest ocean waters, Thailand is a must-see destination.

Save the Elephants in Hua Hin

Elephants are a huge part of Thailand’s culture, but it is a sad fact that they are not always treated humanely. But thanks to the Hutsadin Elephant Foundation, you can have the adventure of a lifetime while also doing good for these amazing creatures. Spend time with elephants, but also learn about the dangers that they face and how you can get involved.

There are so many more adventures awaiting you in Hua Hin, so book from one of these affordable hotels and start planning.

Snorkel and Scuba in Pattaya

Thailand has some of the best waters for snorkelers and scuba divers known to man. The city of Pattaya is no exception. With clear blue waters, you’ll be able to see the underwater world in all its glory. There are many dive shops in this ocean town, and some of the best include Dive in Pattaya, Real Divers, and Seafari Dive Center. If you are not a fan of ocean sports, just hang out at one of these Pattaya hotels and spend some time relaxing.

Boating in Phuket

Phuket also has some great opportunities for ocean activities. Signing up for a boat tour is one of the smartest things you can do as a traveler who wants to experience Phuket to the fullest. Certain tours will actually take you to secluded beaches, so you can spend the day away from the city noise, and just bask in the sun with no interruptions. There are many hotels in Phuket that are beachside, so enjoy the water even after your boat tour ends.

Angthong Marine Park in Ko Samui

Just like much of Thailand, the adventure activities in Ko Samui center around the ocean. This is why you should add Angthong National Marine Park to your itinerary. Angthong Marine Park is located on an island just west of Ko Samui. Here, you’ll see some of the most magnificent marine life and have the opportunity to participate in numerous outdoor activities, such as diving, snorkeling, kayaking, boating, hiking, and camping. You can even choose to stay on the island, but if not, there are many Ko Samui hotels that will meet your every need.

Tiger Kingdom in Kathu

Just like elephants, tigers are an important aspect of Thai culture. Tiger Kingdom is a habitat for tigers that allows people to interact hands on with the animals. That’s right – if you visit Tiger Kingdom, you’ll actually be able to pet, hold, and take pictures with the tigers, free from their cages. This is pretty much as adventurous as you can get! Here are a few Kathu hotels that are nearby to this wildlife paradise.
