Trip to Phanomrung , Phimai , Khoa Yai & Ayutthaya : Trip Review
I have designed this trip in order to promote my hometown. Especially after Cambodia opened, this area has had less tourists visiting, which is probably good for those who do not like touristy areas . This trip is three days long , and starts and finishes in Bangkok .
Phanomrung , Phimai & Ayutthaya : Activities : jungle trekking and walk through historical sites
Have you ever trek ked in a dense tropical forest? A trekking trip like this takes about 3-6 hours . It is real fun and eye opening to forest life. Khao Yai National Park is home to wild animals of over 1,000 species. There are wild elephants, tigers , deers, barking deer, gibbons, horn bills and many more.
Please do not expect to see all those animals at once, since it is not a zoo. However, if you go trekking early morning or late evening, your chancess of see ing them are more.
Also, this trip will allow you to travel to Ayutthya and two Cambodian sanctuaries. It will be your perfect chance to see the close relation ship between ancient Khmer and ancient Siam . We will visit three historical sites in the first two days. Our guide will explain the history, while also refer ring to the evidence of ruins.
Trip to Phanomrung , Phimai , Khao Yai & Ayutthaya Highlight : Yummy food
Many yummy dishes are waiting for you. You will have a chance to try local stay and Thai noodle, cakipork at Nagrong district and yum prakrop (dry fish salad). Yes, all th at stuff you may (not?) be able to have in other places of Thailand . As a local, I have tasted the food before, and no mater how many years have passed by, the taste of the yummy food cannot go wrong and is still very delicious - in Thai we say aroimakmak.
