staycation / khao yai

khao yai resorta unesco world heritage site, khao yai is one of the many rare places in thailand where you can breath in fresh air with clear blue sky and fluffy white clouds above your head. i love khao yai for its’ serenity – like when i need to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life this is where i withdraw to. with its vast nature surroundings it’s near impossible to come back not feeling rejuvenated and more alive than ever. before my trip to seoul i took a short drive up to kensington, khao yai. a beautiful, beautiful resort indeed.Kensington English Garden Resort Khao YaiKensington English Garden Resort Khao YaiKensington English Garden Resort Khao YaiKensington English Garden Resort Khao YaiKensington English Garden Resort Khao YaiKensington English Garden Resort Khao YaiKensington English Garden Resort Khao YaiKensington English Garden Resort Khao YaiKensington English Garden Resort Khao YaiKensington English Garden Resort Khao YaiKensington English Garden Resort Khao YaiKensington English Garden Resort Khao YaiThames Valley Khao YaiThames Valley Khao Yai
