From swimming with giants to gliding with gibbons, few destinations can compete with Thailand for outdoor adventures. Think bouldering or abseiling in Krabi’s Railay Beach – the internationally famous rock-climbing retreat – or soaring through Pattaya’s rainforest canopies at the family-friendly ‘Flight of the Gibbon Experience’ with ziplines, sky-bridges and more.
And the activities continue on water. Take to Chiang Mai’s scenic rivers by raft for a whitewater, white-knuckle ride led by expert guides. Or seek out Similan Island’s beaches and snorkel around the west coast coral reefs.
You’ll encounter cute hawksbill turtles and, if you’re lucky, the colossal whale sharks that frequent the waters. In Thailand, the outdoors is at your fingertips, and with so many adventures available, you’re bound to find one to spark your inner explorer.
