There are huge dams and reservoirs, great river resorts, floating villages on the lakes, incredible waterfalls rivers for jungle rafting and other Thailand tours. All these scenic areas are usually integrated into a Thailand national park and there are over 60. You could visit the areas via a Thailand tour package or on an individual trip.

A very particular holiday subject is trekking, hiking and river rafting is around Kanchanaburi and from there to the west towards the three pagoda pass.

Everyone know the “Bridge over the River Kwai”

Located in Kanchanaburi town. Nearby is one of the most exciting waterfall on planet earth, the Erawan Falls. Erawan waterfall is a real highlight of any Thailand holiday, not the biggest waterfall but the location and the scenery of the waterfall running down mountains over 7 level are real great. Other places to visit are for almost every taste and wallet size. Whether you're a tourist, traveler, backpacker or whatever, you never get bored on Thailand vacation.

The Erawan Falls
Photos
Close to the River Kwai in Kanchanaburi Province is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Thailand. 


It is only about 3 hours and that means if the weather is fine the sun out and weekend or holiday, around the National Park it's like Bangkok rush hour Friday late afternoon.

Behind the entrance and after a short walk the lower level the waterfall becomes visible. The water with a beautiful emerald shade splash down limestone formations over seven levels, a 1.5 kilometers trail in a tropical jungle runs beside the waterfall all the way up to the top. Usually, visitors just have a look for the lower 3 or 4 levels of the Erawan falls.

If you are not in the very good physical condition you have a problem to do the climb up the trail. There are even very steep stairs between the limestone boulders. On the trek up you pass jungle giants and bamboo thickets. On the upper level the water runs over a huge boulder, giving the impression of a three-headed elephant, this is why the waterfall’s name is Erawan, the Hindu elephant god.

Loei is a charming holiday destination, sandwiched between the Phetchabun mountain range and Mekong River. It's green, quiet and far away with tropical mountain forest, lakes, National Parks, waterfalls, all agriculture, no industry. On the road to Loei is the Dan Sai Resort, a nice place from where the countryside can be explored. At Loei are also several good hotels and at every hotel, the first question is, you like a massage? You know which one?

Easily accessible by air, bus and car over a very winding roads through a beautiful countryside create a good mood because it is easy to reach all places. The nearest great outdoor is Phu Rua national park on the way from Dan Sai to Loei town. The highest peak is 1,365 meters and in the “winter” month a chilly wind can bring the temperature down to below zero degrees centigrade.

Usually, no chilly winds are around and a terraced campground under pine trees invites to get your tent up and explore the beautiful surrounding. You can get out for a hike along markers that contain information about the forest. The area is dotted with pine trees. A light breeze of early summer winds might tickles your nose with a fragrance of wildflowers.

Pha Lee Rock Garden shows surrealistic rock formation

somehow like the limestone around Phang Nga in southern Thailand , further up is a so called Stone Forest with more wild stone sculptures. In early summer wild orchids can be found around here. Up to Pha Loan Noi viewpoint people can drive with the car and do a short walk, its worth it, the panorama is a breathtaking experience.

During the rainy season


Huai Phai waterfall, 2.5 kilometers from the visitor center carries enough water for an exceptional splash or –namtok- as Thai call a waterfall. The limestone formations of Suan Hin Pha Ngam stone forest have been formed to all kind of abstract shapes. Typical limestone caves like Orathai Cave and Broken Heart Cave could be explored. Four park lodges for around 300 baht per head for five persons a night over a very basic stay. Campgrounds with showers are near the visitor center, the best actually is to stay in a hotel in Loei town and do the short ride to the National Park, it prevents from a negative experience.


At Loei city


(Loei is spoken as Loi) take the road to the north to have a look for the Mekong River a large stream as you can see the pictures below. The road runs along the river and opens up great panoramas when driving eastwards. The problem with the Mekong River is, the Chinese at the upper reaches have been and are still building several huge dams for power stations and using the water also for irrigation projects. The result is that almost no real ships can cross the river anymore because the river is too shallow, also fishes are gone etc.


Since the Chinese destroyed most of their own nature in the past, they do it now on places where this affects other. That's the some in the high mountains of the Myanmar Himalayas where hordes of Chinese cut too much trees, they are not allowed to do so in Myanmar but they bribe the local administration, cut take the trees and run big profits are made since they even sell the coniferous trees in south Korea.


A great tour I made was from Sukhothai to Phitsanulok after taking the 21 route to the northeast and to the Mekong best to be made by the end of autumn because at that time the river and waterfalls have enough water for a good optical feeling. Why? Rivers and waterfalls without liquid are not particularly interesting. The area in the north is slowly coming together although there is still a deep trench dividing north and south.
