5 places to visit if you do an internship in Thailand

Thailand has been one of the most attractive tourist destinations for Europeans in south-east Asia. Just like Bali, Thailand is a beautiful blend between white beaches and centuries-old temples. Leisure or culture, relax or enter a spiritual journey - the choice is yours! We present to you five of the most interesting places to visit when doing an internship in Thailand.

1) Koh Lanta
Besides being home to a famous French TV program, Koh Lanta is also a beautiful Island on the eastern coast of Thailand, with a scenery shared between touristic spots and wild nature. One of the best way to enjoy your trip in Koh Lanta is to take a boat tour that circles the island.
Because Thailand is located in the southern hemisphere, the hot season lasts from November to March. Despite that, more and more visitors come during the rainy season from May to October, to enjoy a different and less crowded experience. The choice is yours!

2) Sukhothai
Meaning "the dawn of happiness", Sukhotai is a small city in Thailand and the former capital of the kingdom of Siam. Because of its remote location, Sukhotai may not be as visited as other cities, but its historical sightseeings and buddhist temples are not less attractive - Sukhothai is one of the oldest spots in Thailand.

If in Sukhothai, try to taste the local noodles. You won't regret it!

 

 

3) Wat Rong Khun
Wat Rong Khun - "The White temple", is not a common place to visit. Despite being influenced with buddhist architecture style, Wat Rong Khun was built and open to public only in 1998. Between religious symbolisms, modern icons and his own creativity,  the architect Chalermchai created a truly unique temple in style.
Located in the Chiang Rai province, in the northern part of the country, the White Temple is quite isolated from any significant city. Backpackers who like to get lost a little will find in it the perfect adventure.

4) Koh Mook
After the White Temple, let's go to the Emerald Cave. In the southern part of Thailand, Koh Mook is an island especially known for its famous cave. The place is hidden between rock and sea, as a precious gem. The light blue waters reflect on the walls a mesmerizing color that gave its name to the Emerald Cave. A narrow tunnel makes it accessible by sea. A place to relax and to enjoy the beauty of nature, Koh Mook island is a must see.

5) The Red Lotus lake
Whatever color you like - be it white, emerald, or pink - we have a spot for you. This time, let's continue our journey to the Nong han lake, in the north-east part of Thailand. Far from the dense traffic of Bangkok, this lake has everything you need to rest and maybe enter a meditative state. Pink flowers stretch to the horizon as a garden with no end.

Hint: Although named the "Red Lotus lake", the flowers are water lilies, not lotus.

Every aspect of nature diversity seems to be represented in Thailand. Why not experience it for yourself? If you are looking for an internship in this country, just send us a message at contact@brightinternships.com
