    Phanom Rung Historical Park in Buriram province is incredible. Buriram was once part of the Khmer empire and Phanom Rung was built during this period. Some believe it to be a prototype of Angkor Wat. I've been there a number of times and can give you information if you're interested.

    When I was in Thailand, I really enjoyed exploring the islands. I was down in Ko Samui and Ko Phangan most recently. Koh Phangan is where the infamous Full Moon Party happens once a month. Besides the party, I think that the island is really beautiful and a ton of fun. Also, it's really cheap to stay and live at and very easy to get around. You can either rent a moped or get around on the back of pickup cars (they're the taxis of the island) that drive along the main road of the island. Lots of young Europeans flock there for the party every month and some end up staying longer before or after the party, so you'll be in good company :)

      Koh Samui is awesome..try to go to the south end and visit Huanon. Huanon is a tiny fishing village comprised of Muslim and ethnic Thai living in harmony together. Beautiful beach, lively fish market and interesting juxtaposition between Burqa clad and traditional Thai clad women bartering for the daily catch. · (3 likelikes)

      We happened to stay in Koh Samui when they were having a street fair. I believe it is every Sunday evening. We ate (a lot) of delicious street food. Had some of the strongest, and delicious, cocktails of our trip. And walked back to our hotel tipsy and full. Over the course of the night we spent about $10 USD. One of my favorite memories from the trip. If you are going to be in North Eastern Thailand check out the Patara Elephant Farm. You Adopt an Elephant for a day. Learn to take care of it, feed it, groom it and then ride it to a waterfall for a swim. Was truly amazing. · (0 likelikes)

    I remember one of my goals would be to ride an elephant. Unfortunately, I didn't hit the right areas to do it, but it would be cool if you found an elephant sanctuary. I think that would be an experience.

      If you're looking for elephants in Thailand... when I was in Ayutthaya, I stumbled upon the Ayutthaya Elephant Camp and got to feed them cucumbers. You get to ride them, too, if you'd like. There's also a hotel/elephant sanctuary called Elephantstay in Ayutthaya where guests get assigned a retired show elephant during their stay and can feed, ride, wash their elephant for the duration of their stay. Could be interesting! · (2 likelikes)

      Just saw this one. The Patara Elephant Farm was fantastic. You "adopt" an elephant for the day. You learn to take care of it, wash it, and feed it. Then you ride it (everyone get's their own) through the jungle to a lunch spot. After lunch you swim with them in a waterfall. Their belief is that the farms in Thailand should be focused on repopulating and educating people about elephants. There is no "show" or unnatural seats or saddles. Check out their site here for more details. http://www.pataraelephantfarm.com/ · (2 likelikes)
