Explore Thailand by region
To keep things simple, we've divided Thailand into four regions. Bangkok region covers most of central Thailand down to Hua Hin and north to Ayutthaya and Kanchanaburi. Chiang Mai region covers most of northern Thailand. Phuket region covers the south-west coast and Andaman Sea islands including Ko Samui and Krabi. Pattaya region covers the south-east coast and Gulf of Thailand islands. If in doubt, select “All Thailand” to see everything we have.
If you don't know where to look, just type something in the search box at the top of the page and we'll find it for you. If we've missed something, use the Contact us page to get in touch and let us know.
Thailand has so many attractions that travellers like us come back year after year to explore new destinations and revisit favourites from previous trips. We’ve been exploring the special places and activities to bring you the best of what you need to see from temples to tiger parks, elephant camps to wood carving centres and more.
Thailand has so many great beach resorts and island resorts that we’ve still not had time to explore them all. But we do try to visit new beaches and islands each time we travel to bring you the best and most interesting beach destinations. From Ko Samui to Ko Phi Phi, Phuket to Pattaya and some you've probably never heard of like Trat, Ko Mak, Ko Chang and Ko Samet.
We believe that comfortable and affordable accommodation is the key to a great holiday so we try to stay in different hotels, guest houses and B&Bs every time we travel, so we can help you to choose the right place to stay. Here are some of the best places we’ve stayed at. We’ve also added some hotels, guest houses and B&Bs that our friends have stayed at, or which are very highly rated by reviewers on other reputable travel websites.
As we travel, we gather as much information as we can about each location by speaking to accommodation owners, travel guides and other travellers and we put these together as local travel guides here. We hope you will print these guides out and take them with you when you travel.
This section covers the top places you can go after dark to enjoy your evenings including great bars, nightclubs, live music venues, sports bars, local cultural shows and theatre shows. We love to get out in the evenings and find live music and places people like to go to chill out after dark. These are our top suggestions for enjoying the night life.
Thailand is a great place to shop because there’s so much variety and everything is so cheap. We spend a lot of time cruising markets and shopping malls looking for gifts and souvenirs to bring back home for our family and friends. Some of the markets and shopping centres are even tourist attractions in their own right and deserve a visit even if you don’t buy anything. Here are what we consider the best markets and shopping spots.
As we travel around and through local newspapers and websites, we pick up lots of useful stories that will help make your holiday safer and more enjoyable. From safety alerts to how to handle scams, weather incidents and even protest marches. Bookmark this section during your holiday so you're not caught out.
From weather forecasts to money tips, passports, visas, festivals and events, to how to get your iPhone or tablet working on the internet and where to find a date for your hot night out, we've got the best travel tips to make the most of your holiday.
