For the nature lovers...

If you're looking to escape from the hustle and bustle for a while, Bang Krachao is a hidden gem you need to discover. Known as 'the lungs of Bangkok', the 40-hectare park is nestled amongst Bangkok's skyscrapers and is a paradise filled with lakes, trees and plenty of trails for bike rides and long, romantic walks. 

Equally enchanting, the Jim Thompson House is also a tranquil spot. Home of James H.W. Thompson (an American entrepreneur and founder of the Jim Thompson Thai Silk Company), the site is now open to visitors and features six picture-perfect traditional Thai-style houses surrounded by dense jungle.
