Thousands of eco-friendly candles are distributed to the local temples known as Wat by the locals to contribute their devotion in the celebration to remember the first sermon of Lord Buddha. While Wan Khao Phansa is another festival falling right after the day of Asahna Bucha to mark the commencement of the three-month rainfall season.
To make your stay memorable in one of the top destinations in the world, visit Trang, in the Southern part of Thailand. You will definitely bookmark this city as best summer holiday destination once you explore the exquisite Thai food, Limestone Mountains, sandy beaches, and arguably the best shoreline in Thailand alongside the Andaman sea.
Hire a tuk-tuk motorbike when you reach Trang, for your natural escapade to Thung Kai Botanical Garden, then undeniably visit the Khao Kap Cave for its magnificent cave grotto view.

Koh Tao, an archipelago of 3 little islands is a must-visit place because it is less traveled, secluded, and fun with snorkeling and white sandy beaches. Try hiking to the crater of the limestone mountains surrounded by the islands to get the panoramic view that finds places in many of Thailand stamps as well. Also, carry your party animal outside around 3 major party hubs, all located at the Sairee Beach on Koh Tao Island. Live music and travelers playing Beer Pong are something’s you would want to try too.
3. Islands of Andaman& Nicobar, Indian Archipelago

Coined as the top destinations in the world by a myriad of backpackers and wayfarers, you will find Andaman with a lot of families touring around the scenic beaches and indulging in water sports by the bay of affordable resorts and private accommodations.
Hire a local guide to direct your trek through the thick forest of and around Elephant Beach mostly from June-August to find less crowd. Remember to carry enough water to stay hydrated during your trek. You can also add snorkeling, if the time is right for the water sports at Elephant Beach.
