Thailand has a lot to offer its visitors. Inside its cities you’ll discover world heritage sites, modern monuments and tall skyscrapers. In its countryside, you’ll find small farming and fishing villages, dramatic landscapes and a sense of peace you just don’t get in the busy city. Plus, the famed beauty of its islands and beaches needs no further comment.
You need to be willing to do some exploring to discover it all, but it’s a great place to start your Eastern adventure.
For those who like to get lost and experience somewhere lesser-known, head to Isaan province in the east. An area chronically bypassed by most tourists. It’s Thailand’s poorest region and, sadly, its infrastructure reflects this. Isaan is all about authenticity, unusual cuisine and temples. Lots of them! Isaan is home to the largest number of Khmer style temples outside of Cambodia. And, unlike its neighbour, you’ll likely have them all to yourself to explore.
And if you want to relax and indulge in some of the world’s most affordable luxury resorts, head for the coast or one of Thailand’s hundreds of stunning islands. If you’re looking for a beach spot with a bit more energy, head to Koh Samui – it has a fantastic nightlife scene and plenty of things to do and see.
For somewhere a little more off the beaten track, head for Khao Lak in Phang Nga province. Here you’ll find beautiful beaches, turquoise waters, and laid-back beach bars.
