My favourite place though, unleashing the childhood of seeing cute animals like alpacas and sheeps! Primo Piazza brings an impressive old-style Italian atmosphere to Khao Yai, where you get to capture beautiful #OOTD Instagram posts.
It bustles every afternoon as people will either feed some animals or hang out at the cafes in the vicinity.

For just 300 baht, you can a day tour at PB Valley Khao Yai that is one of Khao Yai’s most renowned winery sites. You don’t have to be a connoisseur to enjoy wine, but if you’re a keen listener, you’ll be bound to learn a thing or two about the wines that are being sold at the vineyards.

The Chocolate Factory in Khao Yai is definitely a secret paradise to all chocolate lovers in the world.
If you’re a chocolate fan, make sure you have a friend to rein you in when you get past the chocolate snacks section. There are more chocolate selections than you can ever imagine, and some of them tastier than those I’d have experienced in Perth.
