Thailand Regions

Thailand’s distinct regions offer a wealth of holiday experiences. Most travellers start or finish their holiday in Bangkok, Thailand’s vibrant capital city and the hub of its transport system. Travel north to Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand and you can explore fantastic countryside and visit hill tribe villages and temples.

No visit would be complete without a stay by one of Thailand’s wonderful beaches. Some of the best are in Phuket, whilst the island of Phi Phi or tropical Koh Samui on Thailand’s East coast are smaller and more personal. Less developed is the beautiful coastline around Krabi on the mainland or try the Northern Gulf beaches which can easily be reached from Bangkok.

Where to Go in Thailand

Thailand’s distinct regions offer an extensive range of accommodation options, each with unique characters of their own. Choose from traditional hotels or romantic islands and beach resorts. All are selected for the quality of accommodation they offer, their location, and their excellent value for money.

Bangkok & Region

Choose from centrally located hotels in Bangkok to the region beyond Bangkok. Sukhothai is just an hour’s flight from Bangkok and was Thailand’s first capital. The country’s second ancient capital of Ayutthaya has a fascinating array of historical sites and Kanchanaburi lies in beautiful countryside and is an ideal base for visiting the River Kwai.

Northern Gulf Beaches

Two to three hours from Bangkok are Thailand’s beautiful Northern Gulf Beaches. Pattaya is a holiday playground with vibrant nightlife whilst Cha’am and Hua Hin lie on the opposite coast and offer a quieter alternative. The islands of Koh Samet and Koh Chang are hidden gems with beautiful sandy beaches.

Koh Samui & Region

Surrounded by crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Thailand, the island of Koh Samui  has soft white sand beaches shaded by coconut palms. Just 30 minutes by ferry from Samui, Koh Phangan is most famous for its full moon parties and away from here you’ll find deserted beaches and a mountainous jungle. The diving paradise of Koh Tao is easily reached from Koh Phangan and offers a jungle clad interior and pristine beaches.

Phuket & Region

Phuket is Thailand’s most famous holiday island and lies off its sunny west coast. Just a short distance from Phuket lie some wonderful beach resorts including Phan Nga and Khao Lak. The peaceful island of Koh Yao is just an hour by boat from Phuket.

Krabi & Phi Phi

The beautiful province of Krabi lies to the south of Thailand, washed by the clear waters of the Andaman Sea and famed for its rugged coastline and hidden caves.
