Ton Sai Beach

Within the dreamy province of Krabi is an adventure paradise called Ton Sai Beach located between Ao Sane and Railay Beach. Dotting the Beach are towering rock formations and stalagmites perfect for rock climbing. While Railay Beach is well-known for its climbing adventures, Ton Sai Beach is lesser-known to tourists, which is why climbers flock to this beach. 

While there are many advanced climbing routes, Ton Sai Beach is also a great climbing destination for beginners. There are a couple of rock-climbing courses to take on the Beach, where guides will give you rented climbing gear and guide you along the way. 

Experience Ton Sai Beach in a whole new light while you’re miles in the sky attached to towering limestone cliffs. Gaze over the blue waters of Krabi and white sandy beaches that stretch for miles.

Flying Hanuman

The Flying Hanuman in Phuket is not only famous for its exhilarating zipline, but also for the way the zipline was constructed to preserve the jungle without impacting the natural balance of the environment and its inhabitants. Locals who live on the hillside harvest the natural rubber trees that you will witness during your adventure. During green season, you’ll find a small creek running through the forest. 

Across 80,000 square metres are a wide variety of lush trees and small animals for you to discover on this thrill ride. Fly in the sky in the middle of the tropical rainforest with wildlife, vegetation, and unmatched views. Phuket’s hillsides are waiting to be explored by adventure lovers. Make memories with the Flying Hanuman Phuket.

Bang Kachao

Known as the “Lung of Bangkok,” Bang Kachao is a large green oasis on the periphery of Bangkok and one of the country’s most important oxygen producers. The artificial island is formed by the bend of the Chao Phraya River and a canal. 

While Bangkok is more known for its towering skyscrapers and concrete buildings, this lesser-known jungle is off the beaten path and gets its nickname from its surrounding green spaces. Bang Kachao is a perfect getaway from the hustle of the city where you can connect with nature amid the beautiful city of Bangkok. 

Throughout Bang Kachao are bike trails that wind through the lush mangroves and jungles. Cycle through this green gem and witness the vibrant vegetation around you. During your adventure, you’ll pass through Sri Nakhon Khuen Khan Park and the Botanical Gardens.

While floating along the river, you can witness diverse wildlife; such as, macaque monkeys, pythons slumbering on the branches, collared kingfishers, and more.
