Must-See Places in Thailand Everyone Should Explore

 From mountains and beaches to energetic cities, wildlife-rich national parks, and pretty cities, everyone can find happiness in Thailand. It is a resort of choice for hundreds of thousands of people and offers some of the best streets in the world. You can escape to the land of a smile and it certainly won't disappoint you.

Here are some of the places not to be missed:


The largest island in the country and one of the most popular, Phuket has many faces. You can head to the invading sands of Patong as the area is known for its water sports and hedonistic nightlife. There are also beaches that you can enjoy if you feel like it. You can relax on Karon Beach, take a boat to the beautiful Freedom Beach, or admire the breathtaking views of Kathu Beach. When it comes to entertainment, Phuket offers clubs and bars of all kinds, restaurants offering cuisines from around the world, and world-class shows. You can also participate in activities such as go-karting, hiking, free diving, fishing, ethical interactions with elephants, and jet skiing.


Listed by UNESCO, Ayutthaya is one of Thailand's ancient cities and is a must-see for history buffs. You can easily reach the evocative ruins via Bangkok and they allow you to take a trip back in time to the golden age of Siam. Wat Yai Chai Mongkorn is one of the city's highlights, with its large stupas that can be climbed. A visit to the old Portuguese and Dutch quarters is also worth a look and you can get souvenirs at the floating market.


One of the most popular provinces in southern Thailand, Krabi can offer a multitude of great experiences on its islands and the mainland. Often considered one of the most picturesque islands in Thailand, Koh Phi Phi should certainly be on your list. A more laid-back island, Koh Lanta offers long sandy beaches, mangroves, relaxing beach bars, and a Moken community. Among the less frequented islands are Koh Rok and Koh Jum. As far as the continent is concerned, Railay is a paradise for those who love climbing. Krabi Town gives you a local feel while Ao Nang is a wonderful seaside resort.

Mae Hong Son

A remote and mountainous province of northern Thailand, Mae Hong Son, and Myanmar have a common border. Therefore, you will find that most of the people in the area belong to the Shan ethnic group. The beautiful architecture and nature of the provincial city make it an ideal stop for your travels. The Pai is the main attraction of the province, which is popular with people who love a relaxed life and enjoy nature. It has been a popular meeting place for hippies at one time and its main features are hot springs, Pai Canyon, and waterfalls. You can have fun tubing along the river or hiking.
