Thailand

Discover Sports

The various landscapes of Thailand mean that many sports activities can be practised there. The north is mainly characterised by forest-covered mountains, whereas the centre is rather flat and fertile. The south is composed of beaches and marshes, separated by verdant mountains. This variety thus has everything to please adventure-seekers. Thailand has a total of 79 national parks, 89 wild animal reserves and 35 protected forests, or, in other terms, 13% of the entire territory is covered by protected nature. This makes it possible to try anything from mountain biking to parasailing and canyoning.
