Visiting Ton Sak Yai National Park at Nam Pat

Traveling in Thailand

The Giant Teak Tree is world's largest teak tree living today. That "largest" is measured at the perimeter and at 1.30 meter above ground the tree has a perimeter of 9.85 meter (measured on 13 October 1982) and a height of 47 meter. It has estimated longevity at least 1,500 years old. Surrounding the Giant Teak tree, there are medium sized teaks, teak seedlings in the teak-dominated mixed deciduous." The numbers do not really add up when you see the tree in reality. But never mind it is a very nice park (free entrance). In 1977 the height of the tree has been reduced to 37 meter due  to a storm. Photo above is The tree in 1985 (left), in 2005 (middle) and in 2015 (right).

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
