Tebow has been a world traveler from a young age, and we're sorry to disappoint the Tebow-for-president crowd, but he was actually born outside the United States, in the Philippines. And while his foundation's home page lists Bangladesh and Haiti among the locales where his personal charity reaches, Thailand tops his favorite travel spots. Tebow first spent the summer of 2008 visiting the country with his brothers, and was especially fond of the city of Chiang Mai, located 435 miles north of Bangkok. "I loved Thailand, but especially there," he says. The city has become a tourist hotspot for those looking to interact with Thailand's wildlife. Tebow apparently made himself at home at the Elephant Nature Park, a refuge for rescued elephants. "The animals you can see from riding on elephants, hanging out with tigers, pythons – it's just crazy," he says.
