If you are staying in Bangkok for a few days and have already witnessed its beauty, you might want to leave your retro hotel in Sukhumvit to discover other treasures in Thailand without having to spend the night away. Good thing is that there are day trips you can take while in the capital.
- Hua Hin. For over a century, this seaside spot is one of the popular choices among locals and tourists. Changes are evident in the area after it has been hit by tourism. There are hotels and resorts everywhere along with restaurants that answer the demand of tourists on a daily basis. The good news is that it did not lose its old-world beauty which can be seen through the Hua Hun train station.

If you are a wine lover, you can visit the Monsoon Valley Vineyard while hikers should not miss the Khao Sam RoiYot National Park.
