Here comes August again, a month that visits us in the middle of the rainy season of every year. The atmosphere of this month, in addition to the drenching rain, is filled with love and affection, especially on Mother’s Day, the birthday of H.M. Queen Sirikit the Queen Mother, the Mother of all the Thai people. This is an opportunity for many people to Take their mother out to have Dinner or go on a trip with her. You may not want to go anywhere during the rainy season, but we recommend that you set out to the North to experience the morning mist and make your August more memorable. If you come to Chiang Rai, you’ll get to see the Akha people celebrate their Akha Swing Festivalto pay gratitude to the grace of the "Um Sa Yae” Goddess, goddess of harvest and fertility. This festival lasts only 4 days from the end of August to the beginning of September. If you are in the mood for a new experience of life, we recommend you head to Chiang Rai in August.
During the rainy season in Chiang Rai, there aren’t only traditional folk festivals for you to experience, but also interesting tourist attractions liketheHub Kao Wong Reservoir or “Pang Oung of Suphan Buri”. Apart from Suphan Buri, other provinces also have unrivalled destinations for tourists; for example, Khao Krachom in Ratchaburi and Khao Chong Lom in nakhon Nayok. You can also visit the park and walk along the natural routes in Khao Yai National Park in Nakhon Ratchasima, Nam Nao National Park in Phetchabun, Pran Buri Forest Park in Prachuap Khiri Khan, or admire the fascinating sight of Dok Kra Chiao or Siam Tulip Field at Sai Thong National Park in Chaiyaphum. Moreover, you can Relax and enjoy a refreshing break at waterfalls like Pi Tu Kro Waterfall and Thi Lo Su Waterfall in Tak, Man Dang Waterfall in Phitsanulok and Krung Ching Waterfall in Nakhon Si Thammarat.

August also has a rich variety of fruits for you to choose: Lady Finger banana, Cavendish banana, guava, pineapple, langsat, longan, Custard Apple, sweet orange, grapefruit, star fruit, star gooseberry, etc.
Let’s move to the highlighted activities of this month, starting from rafting among the islets of the Pai River in Mae Hong Son, and Kaeng Hin Phoeng River in Prachinburi. Don’t forget to be careful because rafting in those rivers is quite challenging! You can also visit Wang Bon Reservoir in Nakhon Nayok to relax and enjoy camping in a tent, Fishing, or Canoeing in a private and beautiful atmosphere.
August can be called the month of giving jasmine, sending love to your mother and Dining together. However, in addition to those things, travelling with your mother on a trip to amazing tourist destinations in Thailand is also a way to express your love to your mother.
