Explore the temples of Thailand, go to heavenly Khao Sok National Park, swim in clear jungle rivers, and play with the cutest elephants.
It’s easy to be sinful in Bangkok. You get glutinous with street food, experience slothful hangovers, and feel proud after seeing sensational temples. On this tempting trip, we ensure you go beyond the sins of Bangkok. Spend an afternoon exploring the temples of Thailand’s capital, go to heavenly Khao Sok National Park, swim in clear jungle rivers, and play with the cutest elephant before you finish up on the beautiful island of Phuket.
We spend 6 days exploring Thailand. We visit Bangkok, Khao Sok National Park, Phuket.
