Doi Inthanon National Park – Wachirathan Waterfall

Wachirathan Waterfall is a must go.

Waterfalls are something I always look for in every trip. They are always so mesmerizing and a great reminder that there is natural beauty in this world. Amidst the hustle and bustle of a fast-paced city like Singapore, I think it’s important to take a step back once in a while to admire something as special as a waterfall.


Doi Inthanon National Park – Local Tribal Market

Here is what you can expect to see at the hill tribe market.

 

The tribal market started as an initiative by the royal project to help provide for the tribes by giving them an outlet to sell their produce. Dried fruits and nuts are the best sellers at this market and you can try them before making your purchase. They were really friendly and it made the shopping experience easy and pretty wonderful.
