Another incredible attraction in Thailand is the renowned Ao Nang University. The history of the university dates back to the nineteenth century, when it was founded by a former student and professor of languages. The history of Ao Nang University is steeped in the influence of American education, as well as that of the Thai military junta. A short day trip to the national park from Ao Nang University is an excellent way to learn more about the history of the university and its influence on Thai language and culture.

Phanom Rung Phanom, A World Heritage Site

Phuket’s biggest national park is Phanom Rung Phanom, a World Heritage site. The Phanom Rung Phanom National Park is home to a large number of exotic species including the world’s third-most endangered giant squirrel.

The floating markets of Mae Hong Son are perhaps the most famous tourist attractions in all of Thailand. They stretch along the bay of Phuket and offer a wide array of products from local artisans to fresh seafood.

During the day, you can take part in the market’s activities or at night you can simply relax by the water and watch the people go by.
