If you like to have your head in the clouds, quite literally, there’s no better place than glamping resorts to enjoy a stargazing session in the wild.
Avid stargazers probably know the right spots to admire the stars in Thailand, whether that be Pang Ung, Phu Kradueng National Park, or Phu Soi Dao National Park. These spots undeniably boast a magnificent view of the night sky, yet also require effort and commitment to get to and camp there.

Furthermore, they also make for great spots for stargazing. If you enjoy stargazing or just take pleasure in being surrounded by nature, consider these glamping locations in Thailand for your next vacation.
