Following in the wake of a growing voice in preserving Bangkok's older quarters, it does not come as a surprise that Charoen Krung Road (New Road) is on the forefront of doing all possible in keeping a piece of its former glory.

Aptly dubbed 'The Creative Quarter', a strong movement of conservation efforts of its historical sites flows slowly into this area, almost in the same way, the Chao Phaya River follows the contours.

Ideal for walking tours, exploring the small alleys of Bangrak and Klongsan are a pure feast for the eyes. http://bit.ly/1JVKkXh

Protecting the environment often requires some measures to let national parks naturally rejuvenate in order to deliver breathtaking beauty again for new and repeating visitors.

Aligned with protecting the environment, Thailand's Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) has ordered that 66 of the 147 National Parks will be closed during the green season as a measure to allow nature to do just that.

Vertically creating one of the most scenic holiday places in Thailand, Krabi's limestone karst cliffs and overhangs have left many dangling safely with chalked fingers and anticipating their next move upwards.

Scaling new heights with rock climbing professionals with the turquoise-blue Gulf of Thailand as the decor...not a bad way to work up a sweat. http://bit.ly/1JVKkXh

The importance of the Chakri Dynasty, the dynasty of all the Rama Kings, is celebrated annually on 6 April. On this day, Thai nationals will gather together and pay respect to the 10 Rama Kings of Thailand, particular to the statue of King Rama I, the founder of this dynasty around 200 years ago.

Hundreds of thousands of Thai residents will lay wreaths of flowers at statues of their beloved Rama Kings and light incense sticks for their wishes to reach the spirits of their beloved rulers. http://bit.ly/1JVKkXh

Religion, cleaning and water guns

Thailand’s Songkran Festival’s key theme, like its neighbouring countries, is to signify the symbolic washing away of bad omens and good fortune for the year ahead.

After early morning religious rites and activities, the New Year celebrations get more boisterous as people gather in the street to throw water in good natured revelry. The official Songkran holiday in Thailand runs from April 13-15, while many citizens take longer leave to be among family and friends.

Besides the rich history this festival is known for, it is the time for loads of fun, where water-throwing is the sole “name of the game” to “beat the heat”: If you do not want to get wet, stay at home or else…

The United Nations has declared 22 March as World Water Day

An annual reminder about the importance of water in our world, seen by many as a commodity yet remains a struggle for an equal amount of world residents to obtain enough to get through the day.

Let's join the world in thinking today about measures to prevent spillage and work towards sustainable means to save water. http://worldwaterday.org/

For outsiders, this may look like a dead-end, but our seafaring kayak partners know better.

Scattered throughout Thailand's Phang Nga Bay area, a maze of hidden caves and lagoons, cut out by the constant movement of the sea, lay concealed from the naked eye. Paddling tours by local experts give you the time to enjoy the enshrouded scenery to the fullest. http://bit.ly/1JVKkXh

Regulations on the purchase of Buddha images of any kind has recently been tightened by the customs department in Thailand. The country has increased its measures to further see this important religious symbol being imported in and exported out of the country.

Asian Trails Thailand would like to kindly advise all of its customers that any purchase of artifacts of a Buddhist nature may be subject to control by government officials. Purchases of any kind may require official documentation, according to statements.

If you are looking for an adventure holiday, you don’t have to travel to the north of the country. This is because about 200 kilometres from Bangkok lies Khao Yai National Park, the country’s oldest and most famous national park. It offers numerous hiking trails, and is a haven for flora and fauna.

The 3 days/2 nights Khao Yai Explorer takes you along well-prepared trails and roads interspersed with immense waterfalls and, hopefully, you get the opportunity to meet some of the wildlife inhabitants of the forests.
