As a hub of culture, the central region is covered with a rich tapestry of tourist attractions. Only in Bangkok, travelers may need a few weeks to explore this vibrant city. One among other highlights in Bangkok is its numerous temples standing alongside the modern high-rises, chaotic metropolitan activities and immense traffic jam. Shopping and nightlife scenes in Bangkok are among those loveliest in the world.
Just a hundred kilometers from Bangkok, you witness the different scene and atmosphere of the large paddy-fields, green and lush scenery as well as more ambling lifestyle of people in Damnern Saduak, Kanchanaburi, and Nakhon Pathom. North of Bangkok, you can witness the trace of the glorious days of Ayutthaya, the Khmer-influenced architectures in Lopburi, and experience the peaceful and fascinating historical parks in Sukhothai, the first capital of Thailand in the early times.
There are others places of interest like Kanchanaburi, site of the world-famous “Bridge over the River Kwai” and an Allied war cemetery of soldiers who built “Death Railway”, Kaeng Krachan Thailand’s largest national park, Cha Am and Hua Hin, two popular beach resorts, the coastal Sam Roi Yot National Park, and Prachuap Khirl Khan, a fishing town with a scenic bay, beachside pagoda and resident monkey tribe.
