Title: 12 Best Places to Visit in Thailand – Must See & Must Do



It is a popular beach resort with a wide variety
of activities, accommodation, and pulsating
nightlife. Located on Gulf of Thailand just 150
kms South East of Bangkok (2-hour drive), Pattaya
offers a host of water sports activities like
windsurfing, snorkelling, sailing trips to nearby
islands, etc., and activities for an adrenalin
rush like bungee jumping, skydiving, go-karting
and Muay Thai (Thai boxing).
A city that exudes old-world charm and modern
outlook, Bangkok is the political, economic,
cultural, culinary and spiritual capital of
Thailand. Founded in 1782 by King Rama I, the
first king of the current Chakri dynasty,
Bangkok is also known as the Venice of the East
due to the numerous canals connecting to the
Chao Pharya River. Cruising on the Chao Phraya, a
visit to a floating market, or an exploration of
the cities back alley canals (klongs) are
unique, not-to-be-missed attractions. Click here

Apart from its scenic beauty, a combination of
wonderful beaches, forests and world-renowned
diving sites, Phuket is a treasure trove of
Sino-Portuguese architecture. A popular resort
town destination with a wide range of
accommodation ranging from luxury hotels to
family beach resorts to secluded island villas
and budget hotels, Phuket also has a vibrant
night life. Shopping, spas and wineries are some
of its other attractions.
Thailands Rose of the North is a cultural and
natural wonderland with ethnic diversity and a
multitude of attractions. It is one of the few
places in Thailand where it is possible to
experience both historical
and modern Thai culture. Highlights of the
destination include elephant camps, cooking and
massage schools, numerous outdoor activities, a
variety of handicraft workshops, cultural
performances, and breathtaking scenery.
The 2nd most popular island destination of
Thailand, it is the largest island in an
archipelago of more
than 80 islands that includes the Ang Thong
National Marine Park, a kayaking paradise and a
great day trip from Koh Samui. While Samui is
small enough to be circumnavigated in just a
couple of hours by motorbike or car, the island
features such a variety of beaches and activities
that it would be impossible to experience
everything in a single visit. The beaches of
Chaweng and Lamai are bustling beach towns with
fabulous beach resorts, internationally-acclaimed
restaurants, and world-class nightclubs.
A province on Southern Thailands Andaman coast,
Krabis myriad bays and coves have sheltered
pirates, merchants, and sea gypsies for thousands
of years, and archaeological evidence indicates
that Krabi was originally inhabited as early as
25,000 35,000 years ago. Attractions include
hot springs, a wildlife sanctuary, sea caves,
flourishing coral reefs and exotic marine life,
limestone cliffs that draw rock- climbing
enthusiasts from around the world, and national
parks that include the island paradises of Koh
Phi Phi and Koh Lanta. Explore Holidays to
Chiang Rai, the former capital of the great Lanna
Kingdom, is a fascinating province filled with
cultural and natural wonders. Attractions range
from ruins of ancient settlements and Buddhist
shrines to magnificent mountain scenery and hill
tribe villages. Jungle trekking is a magical
experience and one can also explore the
mountains of the North through various hiking
trails. Many of these trails access villages of
diverse hill tribes that have maintained their
traditional lifestyles.
Ayutthaya is one of Thailands historical and
majestic highlights, just 86 kms North of
Bangkok. The capital of Thailand, then known as
the Kingdom of Ayutthaya (Phra Nakhon Si
Ayutthaya), was glorified as one of the biggest
cities in South East Asia and a regional power
for 417 years. Many of the historic ruins have
been painstakingly restored and are UNESCO World
Heritage Sites. The architecture of Ayutthaya is
a fascinating mix of Khmer and early Sukhothai
A premier beach resort town on the Gulf of
Thailand, it is equally popular with young
couples and families. Hua Hin became Thailands
first beach resort after a train line was laid in
the 1920s to provide access from Bangkok, and
King Rama VII established his summer retreat in
the area. It is popular for its numerous seaside
seafood restaurants, a lively night market, beach
activities, and has some of Thailands most
renowned golf courses. Hua Hin Jazz Festival is
Thailands most popular music festival.
Known as the Switzerland of Thailand, it is
nestled in a deep valley surrounded by hills
bordering Myanmar. Virtually covered with mist
throughout the year, Mae Hong Son was once only
accessible via harrowing, windy, narrow roads
that took almost a day to traverse. It is a
fascinating province of Burmese and Lanna style
temples, hot springs, hill tribe villages,
trekking, rafting, national parks, and even an
annual reggae festival.
Sukhothai means Dawn of Happiness, the first
truly independent Thai Kingdom. The temples
and monuments of this great city have been
lovingly restored, and Sukhothai Historical Park,
a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a must-see for
all travellers, particularly in the evening when
the graceful Buddha images are illuminated by
lights. During the Loy Krathong Festival,
hundreds of candle-powered, floating lanterns
are released into the sky.
Koh Chang (Elephant Island) is the 2nd largest
island and the primary destination for visiting
Koh Chang Marine National Park. The Park is great
for snorkelling, diving, camping, and jungle
hiking. Around 70 of Koh Chang is covered by
rainforest and the island is a dream destination
for budget travellers and families, with a wide
variety of affordable accommodation.
