    This is a large city with over 15 million people. There is so much to see here that you need a couple days just to get to the highlights. The Grand Palace, the Emerald Buddha and the Reclining Buddha are just a few of things to see.

    Another lovely former capital city of Thailand. Features temples and monuments. Great photo opportunities. Along the river, this area was called Venice of the East back in the day. Personally, I love like along the river and have long wanted to take a day trip from Bangkok using a river taxi service to reach Ayutthaya. I think that would be ...

    Mae Hong Son

    8 reviews

    Mae Hong Son is one of my favorite stops in the north of Thailand. The town is extremely laid back and accommodation and food is inexpensive. The people are friendly and and there are a surprising lack of tourists (by Thailand standards). Here you can visit the Karen (long-neck tribe) but I'm not sure I could recommend visiting them because ...

    Nong Khai

    "small" for a thai city, laid back and not too touristy

    Phuket Town

    172 reviews

    I did not have many expectations about this city, maybe this is why i enjoyed so much. Few tourists, a calm small city, with great sino-portuguese architecture everywhere. Some nice bars and caffes.

    Nakhon Sawan

    2 reviews

    Nakhon Sawan is a popular location to stop as you are driving north from Bangkok. It is an area with some small distinct mountains but it is really known for all of the snack shops. Shop after shop attract people travelling home seeking some delicious treats to share with family and friends. Stock up on your favorites!

    A 90-minute trip outside of Bangkok, the town of Amphawa is famous for its 'floating market' which happens on weekend afternoons. Less popular with international tourists than Damnoen Saduak (another floating market outside Bangkok, this one happening in the morning), it still gets mobbed with Thai tourists visiting from the capital. Despite the crowds, it's a great place for photography, ...

    Chiang Mai

    134 reviews

    Thailand's second city, the northern hub of Chiang Mai may be as touristy as can be, but it's also an atmospheric place with tons of excellent food and good-value guesthouses, and the best party scene north of Bangkok. You can wander the wats, get a Thai massage, chow down on some green curry, take in the Sunday walking market, and ...

    Ko Phi Phi Don

    80 reviews

    Perhaps the most beautiful island in Thailand, worth a visit. It can be expensive, though.

    There are many beach resorts in Thailand, including Phuket and Koh Samui. I believe Krabi beaches rate among the best. Krabi town itself is very small and quiet but you need to get out to the islands where the best beaches and snokeling spots are.

    Ko Phangan

    28 reviews

    I spent nearly a month on Big Beach up the east side of Ko Phangan. My favorite island, quite and away from things but not so quite or dead as to be boring.

    Chaweng Beach

    14 reviews

    Crowdy sandy Beach in the heart of night life. During night time many resturant have table on the sand where you can enjoy amazing fresh seafood and cheap cocktail.

    Koh Tao

    30 reviews

    amed for its diving – shallow waters, easy currents, epic corals and whale sharks pull in the crowds – with numerous scuba-diving schools based here. But much of this small island still has a tranquil get-away-from-it-all vibe

    Koh Chang

    21 reviews

    I would recommend you to visit Kho Chang, this paradise-like island, not too touristy with emerald sea and perfect view. If you have time you need to consider to visit both bangkok and chiang mai since they have very different textures. bangkok is a very crowded and chaotically beautiful city where everyone finds something from himself. and chiang mai is ...

    If you're looking for all that southern Thailand beach towns have to offer, want to avoid the masses looking for the same thing, but yet don't completely want to miss out on the nightlife thing, Ao Nang is for you. Completely across the Gulf from Phuket and just onshore of Ko Phi Phi, Ao Nang delivers all of "The Beach" ...

    Samut Prakan

    5 reviews

    The province south of Bangkok has some really cool sights if you find yourself in the area, but is probably not high on the list of 'must-sees' when you are in the Bangkok area. I worked in Bang Plee, Samut Prakan for 6 months so I had a few peeks around the area I worked, so if you find yourself ...
