Map of Thailand

Thailand is the premier travel destination for Southeast Asia and serves as a hub for reaching the sub regions in Laos, Cambodia and Burma (Myanmar). Popular destinations within Thailand include Bangkok, Koh Samui, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Krabi, Koh Lanta, Koh Phangan, Hua Hin and Pattaya.

But Thailand is much more than the touristy areas. If you want to see the true culture of Thailand, head for lesser known areas such as Phimai in Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat), Ban Chiang in Udorn Thani, Kamphaengphet, Kanchanaburi and many more.
