[大人一直飞] 带着相机大闹亚洲隐密欧洲小镇-考艾 Explore Khao Yai, the secret European town near Bangkok few tourists know about!

[编辑 Editor 黄大人  英译 Translator 刘大人  摄影 Photographer 黄大人]

说到咱们的邻国泰国,美食与购物已经是泰国的最佳代言指标,对于那些失去理智的购物狂,每当编排行程必定离不开首都曼谷啦!除了购物、购物、购物之外,不免俗还得以扫街形式来个疯狂吃货团。大人曾经踏足曼谷几回,内心早已厌倦从早到晚埋在购物中心或夜市内的行程!所以此次编程,特意安排近期深受文艺青年青睐的圣地考艾来个既兴奋又新鲜的小粉丝见面会!如果看官们和大人一样感同身受,不妨跟着大人脚步,带着相机与考艾近距离视觉交谈吧!

考艾 (Khao Yai) 是泰国的国家公园之一,距离曼谷约 2.5-3 小时的车程,在这里你不需要携带太多的泰铢,皆因此处找不着任何购物中心与夜市,唯一能让你大肆挥霍的就是茫茫林海中所释放出的芬多精啊!(看官们请多多享用)话不多说,来看看大人如何与考艾在短短的三天两夜里情定终生了!

【大人小贴士】 如何到达泰国考艾?如果你是和大人一样从柔佛新山出发的话,就能透过亚航 Air Asia 网上预订机票从新山直飞泰国曼谷,到达曼谷后再租借当地小Van就行啦!

Forget the notion that Thailand’s all about night markets, shopping and food. Instead, think flower gardens, European-themed streets and even hobbit homes! Up there on the podium with some of the world’s greatest parks, Khao Yai is one of Thailand’s oldest and most visited reserve which was named a Unesco World Heritage Site. If you’re craving a quick getaway to experience Europe without flying the distance, simply grab your next direct flight out from Senai via AirAsia to neighbouring Thailand but skip the crowds at Bangkok and head over to the scenic Khao Yai just 2.5 to 3 hours away.

欧洲主题广场 Primo Piazza

整个广场皆以欧式建筑模样示人,尤其以红砖墙和覆盖满满的翠绿植物最为吸睛!啊~这里还只是入口处而已,大人就已失控拿起相机四处咔嚓咔嚓啦!好喜欢这儿攀墙衍生的绿色植物啊~~~(大人的衙门能不能这样啊?)

Primo Piazza paints an unforgettable impression of tranquillity with its stunning scenery, elegant Italian architecture with many quaint coffeehouses, restaurants and bars all around. And we haven’t even got as far beyond the entrance yet…

只需缴付成人100泰铢/孩童50泰铢的入场费,你就能在里面拿起相机,尽情摆莆士,照上半天相也不足为奇,因为每个角落都是摄影热点啊!随便一拍,谁都能成为超模!(已跪,表示不想离开)

For only 100 Baht per adult (or 50 Baht for children), we got to immerse in the laid-back ambience without having to fly halfway across the world to get a taste of Italy and have the gorgeous pictures to prove it too LOL!

Primo Piazza 招牌来个合影是必须的!隔壁的小黄花姑娘们也太猖狂了吧!您这覆盖整个建筑屋的姿态也未免太抢眼了吧!(不过大人还是忍不住一直拍小黄花姑娘们~)

Bellissimo, isn’t it? The quaint cottages in this garden were spectacular on their own, even the entrance statement!

四面环山的 Primo Piazza,鲜黄色的建筑与绿油油的草地,在蓝天白云的承托下,更显突出!好想躺在草地上,仰望天空,好好放空!(只可惜当天巧遇小雨降临~)

From the terracotta-toned buildings with an unmistakably Mediterranean vibe to the lush greenery, dairy farms and vineyards, we felt like we were in Tuscany (save for the slight drizzle)!

喜爱小动物的小朋们,千万不要错过近距离喂食可爱的草泥马和小绵羊的机会哦 ~ (草泥马的模样也太呆萌了吧!)

We have always wanted to meet and take photos with an alpaca and other adorable animals, and our hearts thumped away as we got up close and personal! So cute…

意大利小镇 Palio Village

尚未到过意大利瞧瞧其真面目?没关系,先来这里暖暖身呗~ 大人想藉此机会大赞当地政府,怎么能把真实的意大利搬到泰国呢?无论是一草一木、一桌一凳、灯饰雕像等,都和意大利的气息一模一样啊!(如果天气也一样,该有多好!)

It would be easy to forget that we’re in Thailand as we walk through this Italian-style enclave was it not for the “newness” of the place, the diverse crowd that were mostly Asians, and the kitschy souvenirs and attractions that we would be hard-pressed to find in rural Italy! While it could never take the place of a visit to an authentic Italian village, Palio Village is a tranquil getaway from Bangkok.

这里除了是拍照好去处外,里头也设有咖啡厅、特色手信小店和服饰店等等。拍照累了,不妨坐下喝杯咖啡好好欣赏意式意境吧!

Bearing little resemblance to Thailand, the hot, subtropical weather that drove us to have a refreshing drink at one of the numerous sidewalk cafes is a reminder that we’re nowhere near the Mediterranean.

大人发觉这里其实也挺适合拍摄结婚特辑的哦~ 想要不一样的结婚特辑题材,不妨考虑这里!

The beautiful landscape is also picture-perfect for a romantic pre-wedding photo shoot that could prove worthwhile and create long lasting memories for lovers tying the knots.

地址 / Address: Thanarat Rd, Mu Si, Nakhon Ratchasima Province, 30130, Thailand.
营业时间 / Operation Hours: 9am – 7pm

小瑞士农场 A Cup Of Love

A Cup of Love 被称为泰国的小瑞士,背山面湖,不仅风景优美,空气也特别地清新!在踏进农场内之前,首先将会有片湖景进入眼帘,湖上还有鹅群鱼群们欢迎看官们的到来哦 ~ 即便你对农场没有太大好感,来到这里,肯定会让你改变对农场的看法!

Be transported to Switzerland after bidding Addio to Palio. When embarking on long journeys with young children, we often need several stops along the way. Luckily for us, the good people at A Cup of Love have provided the perfect place to do so, with a little help from their friends. The setting was very picturesque, with an almost western farm theme to the buildings and a small bridge that leads us over a lake for a fun-filled day.

站在最高处往下看,这景色是不是很疗愈?烦恼是什么?什么是烦恼?统统忘掉吧!

A resolutely green & beautiful sanctuary that appeals to the senses, how’s this for total relaxation?

农场内饲养各种“色派“绵羊、小白兔、小鸡等小动物。有趣的是,访客可以拿着奶瓶喂小绵羊哦,让你充当一日羊妈妈或羊爸爸!

Needless to say, the sheep here are the star attraction, with the opportunity for us to feed and stroke them.

除了和小动物们打交道之外,再往上走你还可以看到类似电影魔戒哈比人的哈比屋哦~ 又是一轮手机相机咔嚓不停的世纪大战!

We can even live our Hobbit fantasies in the “The Shire” at the nearby Hobbit House instead of fly all the way to New Zealand’s Hobbit movie set to look at these adorable houses! What’s more, we can dress up as our favourite LOTR characters for FREE

地址 / Address: 97 Ban Nam Khieo, Kanchanaburi, Thailand.
* 需凭票入场,门票费用不包括喂食绵羊的奶瓶。

童趣花海 The Bloom

来到 The Bloom, 朵朵靓丽动人的花仙子,随风摆动宛如跳起迎宾舞般欢迎访客的来临!放眼望去,身在花海的每位花仙子极力推销自己,不管是利用鲜艳花色或花香,只盼访客们停留身边留下合影呢~

Embrace flower power at the largest garden in Thailand that is filled with rows of flowers that instantly brighten up our day. Open all year and home to more than 30 species of winter flowers, no more flying to France to witness nature’s splendour or take a picture in lavender or sunflower fields because The Bloom makes for an even lovelier backdrop, and at a much lower cost too!

大人不知不觉也被这些花仙子给迷惑得糊里糊涂,回府惊见相机内的照片都是花仙子踪影啊!

Here, we can easily practise our poses because the place is too pretty to miss a snap!

这里很适合一家大小来个户外亲子教学,一边游玩一边解说各种花名给孩子们,让孩子们接触大自然,远离电子世界,何尝不是件好事?

This will unquestionably be ideal for a romantic getaway or a family escape, where the kids, or the big kid in us, will enjoy.

地址 / Address: 357 Moo 5 ,Tambon Pak Chong,Nakhon Ratchasima,Thailand
营业时间 / Operation Hours: 8am – 8pm
门票费用 / Entry Fee:  周日 100baht,周末 200baht

同场加映 : 考艾特色餐厅
欧式古堡浪漫餐厅 Midwinter Green

旅行,要求的不仅是视觉要得到满足,大人的味觉和胃觉也要同时得到满足啊!这位于考艾的欧式古堡浪漫餐厅,一次过满足大人的两大要求!必须在此慎重告知看官们,如果来到考艾,建议把最后一天的晚餐安排来这里,吃顿丰盛的美食,再享受悦耳音乐,让你的旅程有个美好的完结!

Our trip to Khao Yai won’t be complete without a stop at the “atas” Midwinter Green for some authentic European experience, not just in terms of their menu, but also how the overall building design was inspired by Shakespeare’s play.

大人拍胸口保证这些照片绝不欺诈!你眼睛看到的和现实绝对一模一样!这家餐厅内也结合一家以露营为主题的商店,售卖的产品主要以手工艺品或食品类等为主,非常值得一逛!

There’s also an in-house marketplace aptly named the Picnic Store, which offered a wide array of freshly baked confections and local produce fresh from the farms.

划分为室内和室外的用餐区,两者各有风味。室内崇尚较为私人的用餐体验空间,而室外气氛融洽,正中央附有舞台,还可以边用餐边欣赏现场演奏!大人较偏爱户外区,话说歌手的表演真是让大人和友人们听出耳油,还一度拿起桌灯充当荧光棒呢!(这是不良行为,切记不要模仿哦~)

You can dine outside with a gorgeous view, or choose the aircon life and sit indoors. As we found the interior to be too posh, we opted to eat at the al fresco area for a more laidback atmosphere with a great live band to boot!

食物方面以西餐为主,从前菜、披萨、意大利面到主食,道道美食无话可说!一个字,赞!虽然价位颇高,但在如此完美的氛围里用餐,大人真心觉得值回票价!

The excellent menu selection mainly consists of European style dishes and comes with an extensive wine selection as well. Be sure to order their signature Midwinter’s Pizza.

Boy, we were glad we chose to dine here. We really do get to dine like a king!

【温馨提醒】每晚 7.30pm 於餐厅有特别的灯光秀,荧幕所示正是建筑物的墙面!如果不想错过这别开生面的灯光秀,建议大概 7.30pm 以前抵达餐厅。

Be even more amazed and marvel at the laser show when the sky gets dark, so make sure you arrive well before 7.30pm. Bon appétit!

地址 / Address: Nong Nam Daeng, Pak Chong District, Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.
营业时间 / Operation Hours: 10am – 10pm

同场加映 : 考艾特色住宿
欧式古堡旅店 U Khao Yai Hotel

是不是和大人一样,幻想着有那么一天能够入住古堡,体验欧洲贵族们的生活?来~大人告诉你,来到考艾,只要花费马币 150 一人一天(两人同房)就能体验欧洲贵族们的生活!是不是很划算?是超划算的好不好!(呐喊中)

【温馨提醒】由于旅馆地理位置偏辟,大人建议大概 8-9 点回旅馆休息为佳,因为考艾路边多无路灯,实属危险。

Tucked among the majestic mountains of the Sankamphaeng Mountain Range, the recently opened U Khao Yai Hotel offers a romantic, peaceful escape that merges the inspiring spirit and beauty of Khao Yai National Park with the elegance, ambience and warmth of a French country manor. For only RM150 per pax/night (twin-sharing), we were certainly getting more than we have bargained for.

Being a nature-oriented getaway destination, Khao Yai offers little when it comes to nightlife. With most streets lighting at its minimal or non-existent, we are better off staying in and appreciating its nature and wildlife instead of a wild party.

看官们,睁开你的眼睛,看看那雄伟壮观的古堡,就是大人三天两夜行程的落脚处啦!由于第一天抵达旅馆时天色已暗,还不知道周围的环境是如此迷人,翌日醒来一看,天啊~这景色美得太犯规了啦!

Beautifully landscaped, lush gardens, serene ponds and magnificent scenery, the French-inspired countryside chateaux are arranged in a village-like complex that certainly set this unique destination among the best new hotels in Khao Yai.

你们是不是一度认为大人放错照片了呢?别怀疑!这真的是在泰国考艾!因为大人也和看官们一度以为自己身在外国了呢!(如果天气再凉些会更好)除了怡人风景之外,旅馆的设施也非常齐全哦!泳池、SPA、健身房和餐厅等无一不缺!还能在大厅内免费租借脚踏车悠闲自在地环走旅馆四周哦~

We couldn’t help but sent pictures of the hotel surroundings to our family and friends, and their universal replies were “Wow, are you in Europe?”

Leaving the rest still green with envy, we continued to check out the hotel many other unique recreational opportunities such as fitness centre, indulgent spa, a large free form swimming pool and separate kids’ pool, both of which are surrounded by lush gardens and a waterfall.

大人建议看官们,可以提早起床,来个晨泳后再享用丰盛早餐,保证让你精神饱满一整天啊!(泳池的风景也是一流,对着大片绿悠悠的树林游泳,你还不醒吗?)

Of course, we also get the U signatures of 24-hour check-out timed from our check-in, and breakfast served whenever and wherever you want. How’s that for a real break?

而房间内部则以北欧风呈现,温暖舒适的色调,让人一觉到天亮啊!(酒店还贴心地在每个床位放置一只可爱的小白兔抱枕哦~)

Our Superior Rooms are designed in pale green colour schemes with sofa benches and views of the lush tropical gardens, with every luxury amenity required for a relaxing stay all in place, including a couple of cute bunny bolsters!

这趟三天两夜考艾游,的确让大人的身心放松不少,看看美景,拍拍靓照,吃吃美食,睡个好觉,大人我钟爱这样的旅程!其实考艾还有许多不一样的景点和其他特色主题旅馆,大人不想因为要一次过走完,累坏自己,所以只选了几个景点走走而已。其他的就留待下次再发掘吧!
There’s much more to Khao Yai than meets the eyes, but we figured slow and steady does it for a 3D/2N itinerary. If you’re an avid traveller like us, Khao Yai would be your next favourite destination directly out of JB without blowing your budget. Till then, it’s Sawadee & Addio!
