According to a TripAdvisor traveller, “Words can’t discern how beautiful these islands are. The dramatic view of the colourful limestone cliffs soaring from the emerald green water is mesmerizing.”
At 2,565 metres above sea level and forming part of the Himalayas, Doi Inthanon National Park in Chiang Mai is Thailand’s highest mountain. With cascading waterfalls, rivers and lush summit forests, the mountains are also home to the Meo and Karen hill tribes aswell as a rare variety of indigenous and migrant birds. As described by a TripAdvisor traveller, “To ride from the swelter of the summer heat up into the cool and the clouds that visited us on the mountain, was almost surreal! The royal Pagodas are a must-see attraction; truly regal!”
Khao Sok National Park is a virgin rainforest dotted by limestone mountain ranges and high cliffs. Established as a national park in 1980, the poised limestone mountains resemble those in Guilin, China resulting in the local nickname of “Thailand’s Guilin”. Enthused a TripAdvisor traveller, “The park was just amazing. Limestone cliffs, the lake, river canoeing, trekking, cooling off in the pool. If you are travelling to this region and are an outdoors person, then definitely visit the national park.”
The New consulate .
Chinese officials confirmed that a consulate in Phuket will be operational by next year in order to cater for the dramatic increase in Chinese nationals visiting the island.
“The plan to establish a Chinese consulate in Phuket has been approved. However, we still need to find a place for it, as well as personnel,” the Chinese Consulate General in Songkhla, Zhang Jinxiong, told Phuket Governor Maitri Inthusut at a meeting this morning.
“Having a consulate in Phuket is necessary. As we know, Phuket welcomes a lot of Chinese tourists to its shores. With more people arriving every year, there simply will be more problems that need to be taken care of,” Mr Zhang said.
Once up and running, the consulate will provide document verification services, help to tourists in need, temporary passports and travel permits. It has yet to be established whether the consulate will issue visas.
“We want to be close to our people, so we can support them while they are travelling in Phuket,” Mr Zhang .
Mr Zhang encouraged all Chinese tourists planning a trip to Phuket to check the government website for news and travel information. Additionally, he warned tourists against swimming in no-swim zones, which are clearly marked with red flags by Phuket lifeguards.
