Attractions in Thailand

Once a strategic military region between Thailand and Burma, Tak is now known for its bustling border markets, ethnic diversity, and natural beauty.
On traveling to Tak Province, expect to discover a place with long history, where natural wonders are magnificently enhanced by ethnic diversity. Historians believe the city of Tak had been built prior to the Sukhothai era and later served as the western frontier of the Kingdom. Tak was also associated with Thailand is former Great Kings, including King Ramkhamhaeng, King Naresuan, King Narai, and King Taksin, all of whom are thought to have assembled their armies in Tak. Tak is believed to have been the first district liberated from the Burmese Kingdom and that is why the seal of the province depicts King Naresuan the Great on the royal elephant, pouring sacred water on the ground. This is a symbolic representation of the declaration of the independence of the Kingdom of Ayutthaya during the war with Burma in 1584. 
Today, Tak is no longer a strategic military frontier between two great nations. It is however a trading gateway to Myanmar, particularly at Amphoe Mae Sot, where lots of economic activity takes place along the border. In addition, Tak is located at the nexus of three major highways that connect Thailand is western border north, south, and east to Chong Mek and eventually Laos.
Apart from Tak is military and economic importance the province is also an environmental and cultural center with magnificent forests, spectacular waterfalls and caves, and fascinating hill tribes such as Karen, Lisu, Musoe (Lahu), Akha, Yao and Hmong.
Tak is a beautiful province almost entirely off the tourist map; consequently, visitors looking for true Thai hospitality and a peek at everyday Thai culture, unspoiled by the influences of mass tourism, are in for a real treat. While there are few tourist oriented sights and activities, this does not mean Tak is absent of attractions; in fact, Tak features spectacular natural attractions, including jungle covered mountains filled with exotic animal life, many hill tribe villages living traditional lifestyles, and opportunities to go white water rafting, play golf, or visit a gibbon rehabilitation center.
