Thailand is rich with of beautiful places that you must visit. Many of these, you've probably already seen. But there are many hidden places still waiting to be discovered. Today Chillpainai would like to take you on a trip through unseen Thailand. Here are 10 places that you might not  know, but must visit.



Sea Safari - Ko Kradat (Trat)

The first unseen treasure on our trip is the Sea Safari located in Ko Kradat, within the Trat province. This is a medium sized island near Koh Mak. Here, you will not only see the clear blue water, but also wildlife like free roaming, domesticated deer. Visitors should definitely take a selfie with a deer and hop onto the sightseeing tour. Another landmark slash photo spot is the leaning palm tree that shoots outwards towards the sea. You can't leave here without getting a few photos sitting on the palm tree, looking out to the sea. To avoid the heat of the summer, Sea Safari is best visited between November and April. This time also has the calmest water, making it a great time for snorkeling.

 Follow Your Heart into the Forest at Umphang - Pitugro Waterfall (Tak)

The next stop is located in Doi Sam Muen range, within the Tak province. This heart shaped waterfall called Pitugro Waterfall is the tallest waterfall in Thailand. With water converging from the left and right of the cliff, the falls create a lovely heart shape and a great view. That said, you will have to work to see this, as the waterfall is 8 km away from the entrance. This may also require camping out, but we guarantee that it's worth it. The view along the way and the waterfall itself is priceless.

Soak up some nature in Nam Ok Hu Pond - Nam Ok Hu (Chiang Mai)

       Let's take a break and relax in one of the most beautiful areas in Mae Jam, Chiang Mai. Nam Ok Ru is an emerald spring that gets its name from the natural stone aquifers in the region. Thanks to the plentiful groundwater, you don't have to worry about Nam Ok Hu drying up in the summer months. While there, be sure to play in the water, relax on the walkway, have a picnic, or walk around in the nature. This is certainly one of the best hidden gems in Thailand and, when exhausted after a long day of work, unwind and relax in this isolated natural wonderland.

Savanna Andaman - Koh Phra Thong (Phang Nga)

 Another Unseen Thailand that you must visit is Koh Phra Thong in the Phang Nga province. This area is also known as the Thai Savanna. Now close your eyes. Imagine fields of golden grass stretching out into the distance as far as your eyes can see. Yes, you can see that here. Take a tractor ride through the beautiful fields, stopping to take pictures along the way. If you want to see the fields in their brightest shimmering beauty, be sure to visit during the dry season between November and April. But the most beautiful period would definitely be between December and January.

Visit the Temple of the Glow In The Dark Tree - Sirindhornwararam Pupao (Ubon Ratchatani)

On this beautiful night, we will take you to see a stunningly beautiful glow in the dark temple called Wat Sirindhornwararam Pupao. Just as beautiful as the Himavanta forest in Hindu mythology, this temple is decorated with in a beautiful pattern of a cassia tree that glows in the dark when the sun goes down. While you're waiting for sunset, be sure to take a few pictures from the viewpoint of the Mekhong river, allowing you to see all the way to Laos on the other side of the river.

Sea of Pagodas on the Mountain - Wat Phrabat Pupha Daeng (Lampang)

 Put on your hiking boots, you've got some climbing to do to reach our next unseen location. It is called Wat Phrabat Pu Pha Daeng, but it's also known as Wat Chaloem Phrakiat Phrachomklao Rachanuson. The highlight of this location is the ten pagodas perched atop the mountain, but it would be completely inaccessible if not for the local community that supports the area. The views are incredible, both looking up at the mountain and from atop the mountain itself, especially on foggy days with the mountain sitting above the clouds. It's a magical and beautiful sight to see the pagodas in an endless sky. Once you get one look, all the exhaustion you had from walking all day will just disappear.

Visiting the 75 Million Year Old Three Whale Rock Family - Hin Sam Wan (Buengkan)

Onto the next unseen Thailand! Next we are heading to Buengkan province to see Hin Sam Wan, one of the most amazing landmarks on three massive cliffs. These cliffs are shaped just like whales, with mother whale, father whale and baby whale swimming through the green forest. This rock formation is over 75 million years old. So think about that when you're relaxing on the rocks, watching the best sunrise in the entire Phu Sing area. Watch the golden orange light up the blue sky and spread out over the never ending green forest.

Visiting the moon on earth - Hat Chom Dao (Ubon Ratchatani)

Staying in Ubon Ratchatani, the next Unseen Thailand on our tour is a great spot for our hipster fans, Kaeng Chom Dao or Hat Chom Dao. This large rock formation is riddled with holes and craters, just like the surface of the moon. The views are amazing and beautiful, as the area is surrounded by cliffs, beaches and raging rapids. It is an incredible place for pictures. You could spend all day doing that. So you better get here for the sunrise, we guarantee that you will enjoy the breathtaking views.


Playing football on the floating field – Koh Panyi (Phang Nga)

Back to Phang Nga for our last unseen Thailand, we will be checking in at the fisherman village in Koh Panyi. This area has one of the most unique things we've ever seen, floating football field. This field is built for local children and adults to enjoy playing football. No need to wait for the tide to go out or the flooding to go away, when the field floats on water, you can play no matter what. When you're not in the middle of a game, experience the life of the local islanders using the home stay program. Chill out on the beautiful beach looking out at the Andaman Sea.
