Thailand is a stunning country featuring white sandy beaches, breath-taking landscapes and – of course – crazy nightlife.

However, Thailand is not just about Phuket, the Full Moon Party, and Krabi Island; but this wonderful country has a very rich and fascinating cultural heritage too.

Indeed, the UNESCO found 5 places to put under its World Heritage List: Ban Chiang Archaeological Site (1992), Historic City of Ayutthaya (1991), Historic Town of Sukhothai and Associated Historic Towns (1991), Dong Phayayen-Khao Yai Forest Complex (2005) and Thungyai-Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuaries (1991). The first three are cultural sites and the last two natural.

First and only prehistoric settlement found in South East Asia, Ban Chiang Archaeological Site is a human habitation from the prehistoric era.

The Historic City of Ayutthaya was built around the 1350 and it used to be the capital city of Siam.

First capital city of the Kingdom of Siam, the Historic Town of Sukhothai can be dated back to the 13th century A.C.

The Dong Phayayen-Khao Yai Forest Complex is a natural area located between the Cambodian border and Ta Phraya National Park. Spanning over 230 km, this natural site presents 800 species of fauna all hidden in the lush greenery of the jungle.

Thungyai-Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuaries is definitely a must-visit. Positioned along the Myanmar border, this natural site is home to numerous animals, such as tigers, elephants, and beautiful exotic birds.
