Khao Ngu National Park in Thailand 


Provinces close to Bangkok are the real hidden gems among locals because mass tourism tends to focus on hyping up Northern and Southern Thailand

Tucked away in the west of Thailand is Khao Ngu National Park in Ratchaburi  this beautiful work of nature looks like scenes from ‘Raya The Last Dragon’. 


National park 2 hours from Bangkok


You’ll find a number of mega rocks in the stone park that is neatly wrapped in bodies of water – it’s truly a geological art of work. Who’d think a beautifully designed park would be only just 2 hours away from Bangkok?

To get around the park, non-nature enthusiasts can take the paved ways and connect bridges – which also double as Instagram-worthy spots. For those who enjoy taking the rocky trails, there are some paths you can travel.
