Travelling opens our eyes to new horizons and the opportunity to experience life in a different space, time and setting. A great travel experience that sets apart from a mediocre one is the ability to experience a different way of life and to truly immerse in the local culture that we would otherwise be unfamiliar with.
Travelling in the new century is all about creating unique experiences and moments that matter which can be as simple as taking the time to smell the flowers, listening to the rustle of leaves in the wind, taking unfamiliar roads and taking in all senses around you while keeping an open mind to what's to come.
Because there is so much joy and meaning one can derive from such experiences, it is not unusual for travellers especially families with young children to forgo the all too familiar touristic hotspots, glitzy shopping malls, and commercially popular restaurants in exchange for some off-the-beaten-track adventures.
So If you are visiting Bangkok and are looking for some unique and fun-filled adventure activities with meals and private transport all inclusive for your family, the following might just be what you are looking for
Awesome Day Trips In And Around Bangkok
1. Experience Asia's Most Pristine Tropical Rainforest From Above The Canopy
The Jungle Canopy Adventure in Thailand started out as a gesture of love for nature. Previously teeming with gibbons, macaques and other wildlife, the rainforest saw its population dwelling due to human encroachment of their natural habitat.
To restore the rainforest back to its healthy state and to re-introduce wildlife back to their natural habitats, considerable efforts were made in collaboration with local forestry restoration research experts to step up on conservatory efforts which include educating local farmers and villagers on sustainable forestry and how their vital resources can be protected
Besides providing tourists with the pleasures of experiencing the beauty of Asia's pristine tropical rainforest, the initiative hopes to create awareness for the environmental crisis the world is facing and we can become more informed and aware of environmental and conservatory issues back at home
Built and designed by international experts from New Zealand with over 20 years of experience and a perfect unblemished safety record, Thailand's original zip line jungle canopy adventure offers anyone from the age of 5 - 95 years the opportunity to explore Asia's beautiful rainforest.
2. Tantalising Food Tour, The Local Way
Thai cuisine is essentially a matrimony of centuries old eastern and western influences combined and reflective of the Thai's waterborne lifestyle. A typical Thai meal should consist of a soup, curry dish with condiments and a dip with accompanying fish and vegetables. Be it chilli hot or not, the harmony of tastes and texture is always the guiding principle behind every dish or meal.
Internationally renowned for its much adored palatable cuisine, nothing beats experiencing it yourself in the locally curated culinary tour right here in Bangrak, Bangkok - a famous district well known for serving local Thais diverse flavours of centuries old local cuisines from various regions and ethnicities. The 3.5- hour tour will be a combination of delectable food tasting with off-the-beaten-track sightseeing – a fun way no doubt to explore Bangkok like a local insider.
3. Basking In UNESCO Heritage Ruins
About 1.5 - 2 hour away from Bangkok, a day trip to Ayutthaya brings you back to the former days of former Siamese kingdom grandeur. Cycle through magnificent temples, palace ruins, crumbling fortresses that pay homage to the former Siamese kingdom grandeur. The 2hr cycling trip is followed by a relaxing traditional Thai massage as a delightful meal of Thai cuisine awaits you on a teak rice barge as you cruise along peacefully on Ayutthaya's famous waterways and basking in the mesmerising views of ancient grandeur.
4. Exploring Khao Yai
Lush mountains, pounding waterfalls, rich biodiversity and a 3 hours drive from Bangkok, Khao Yai is an emerging getaway destination for those seeking to be in touch with nature and wildlife. It is also a highly sought after destination for those hoping to escape the scorching heat in Thailand during SongKran in the month of April.
This exclusive 3-day curated tour program brings to you the many amazingly gorgeous stalagmites and stalactites in an underground cave, a dip in a refreshing natural spring at sunset as one witness millions of bats leaving their caves in swarms for their night hunt.
