Even for someone like me who travels to Thailand pretty often, there are some of these hidden gems that I did not know exist... malu weii...

So let's go re-discover Thailand again, but together this time!

1. Chang Chui Creative Market

Here's what you can anticipate:

  • All things hipster; art galleries, vintage theatres, unique architecture, exotic gardens etc... like what we'd experience in events held at APW Bangsar and even EcoWorld - just way more heightened!
  • You can actually dine in the plane that is landed smack in the middle of Chang Chui market! Better food than what you'd usually eat on-board a flight, that's for sure.
  • You want LIKES FOLLOWS on Instagram, get yourself over to this place.

WHERE: 462 Sirindhorn Rd, Khwaeng Bang Phlat, Khet Bang Phlat, Bangkok

OPERATING HOURS: 11.00AM - 11.00PM (THURS - TUES); Closed on WED.

2. Wat Rong Khun White Temple

Here's what you can anticipate:

  • This isn't where the Snow Queen resides but the whole white temple are made out of "The Cycle of Rebirth", “Life and Death” & “Heaven and Hell” themes, among others.
  • You'll see scultures of hand coming out from the ground, so you hardcore creative content makers would definitely have lots of fun with that.
  • It's just too unique to drive past. Do stop by and feed your Instagram!

WHERE: Pa O Don Chai, Amphoe Muang Chiang Rai, Chiang Rai

P/s: Fun Fact The White Temple was built in 1996 by Chalermchai Kositpipat

3. Bang Saen Beach

 Here's what you can anticipate:

  • It's just an-hour drive from Bangkok, but Fun Fact is that is beach isn't known for sun-bathing and swimming.. instead, it's known for FOOD!
  • You get to indulge in Thai street food while basking in the ambience of beautiful sunny skies and sounds of crashing waves.
  • After your meal, go ahead and enjoy a romatic walk on the beach... take off your shoes and slippers; get your legs wet - it's a beach after all.
  • Head over to the small stalls around the beach if you're looking to buy some little knick-knacks.

WHERE: Bangsaen Beach, Chon Buri 20130, Thailand

4. Koh Kood Beach

Here's what you can anticipate:

  • It's found on the East coast of Thailand, nearby Cambodia. Fun Fact: It was an inaccessible island for years, hence why it's considered a hidden gem -- literally.
  • Best part, it's a tourist-free beach so you can enjoy the sun and swim all day! Well maybe not tourist-free anymore after people start reading this...
  • Y'know those crystal-blue waters you see in movies, well here's where you can actually experience that. If you have a drone, bring it. If you don't, get one immediately. Don't miss out on this!
  • It has a strong resemblace to beaches in Maldives - which you must know by now for having one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!

5. Bang Krachao (for Cycling)

Here's what you can anticipate:

  • Bang Krachao is know as The Green Lung - bring a drone and fly it over the area, you'll see why. 
  • Tourists say this is the perfect place for cycling - in which you can rent a bicycle for less than RM10 for a whole day!
  • You'll enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and the care-free locals.
  • The bike-path will lead you into the thick forests...let's hope you have been working out cause there are some elevated pathways.

WHERE: Bang Kachao, Phra Pradaeng District, Samut Prakan, Thailand

6. Tree House @ Bang Krachao (for Chillaxing)

Here's what you can anticipate:

  • Your childhood dreams of having a tree house is finally here...but wayyyyyyy better. Now you can dine with this beautiful view... it's just breath-taking.
  • A tree house made up of eco-friendly structure (wood, glass and iron) with very interesting architecture and design.
  • This is definitely the place to sit down with your date while indulging in Thai food & beer... I wish I had discovered this sooner...

WHERE: Bang Kachao, Phra Pradaeng District, Samut Prakan, Thailand

OPERATING HOURS: 8.00AM - 9.00PM, Daily

7. Erawan National Park

Here's what you can anticipate:

  • The pond is literally emerald green! Oh, and the waterfall is said to resemble an elephant's head!
  • There are beautiful limestone hills that has an elevation of 165 - 995 meters above sea level.. so if you're going for an extreme adventure, let's see if you can make it up to the top.
  • Scenery like this is rare, so head over and just chill...soak, swim, and just enjoy the natural beauty that God has created.

WHERE: Tha Kradan, Si Sawat District, Kanchanaburi 71250, Thailand - it's a 2-hour bus ride from Bangkok...

OPERATING HOURS: 8.00AM - 4.30PM, Daily

With so many of these amazing spots to travel to, start planning your trip and apply for leave before it's too late. Personally, I'm gonna go head over to Koh Kood Beach and then off to Bang Krachao for beautiful scenery while I'm cycling...and that tree house, dayummm.... See you there!
