Thailand may be world famous for its stunning beaches, but the mountains are no less beloved by locals.Translating simply as the “Big Mountain” an excursion to the Khao Yai area often means a trip to Saraburi and Nakorn Rachasima provinces to enjoy the eponymous national park, as well as the surrounding areas, such as Muak Lek, Pak Chong, and Wang Nam Kiew.
Driving up the snaking mountainous roads past Tuscany-inspired boutiques, roll down the windows and enjoy a cooling zephyr at higher elevations. Visitors to these areas often remark on the air quality, which is invigoratingly fresh.
During the winter season, where temperatures are still very warm in many parts of the country, Thais break out their seldom-used jackets and sweaters and flock to Khao Yai, huddling under warm blankets at night with the windows open.For lovers of nature and cool climes, Kao Yai is an unbeatable treat.
