Bangkok and the provinces: from metropolis to untouched nature

What comes to your mind when it comes to Thailand? Sandy beaches? Night markets? The bustling and busy streets of Bangkok at night? We tried to make this trip unusual for those who visit Bangkok and its surroundings for the first time and for those who have not come to this metropolis for the first time. The script starts in the Thai capital, where you will spend two full days visiting amazing temples, walk in the parks and see the museum collections. After that you will go to less known but no less interesting places, drive through the national park, swim in natural springs, visit wineries and have fun in amusement parks.
