Thailand is an immensely diverse country, especially from a tourism perspective. Whether you want city life, culture, history, or a relaxing beach holiday, Thailand has it all. This makes the country wildly famous for tourists all over the world and most probably why you are reading this as well. While most countries you go to, you go for a specific destination and probably do not travel around much, here in Thailand you can see it all in one holiday. Therefore we will try to show you some different areas that the country has to offer so that you can experience all the different ways of Thailand in one big and adventurous yet relaxing holiday.
Let us begin with the centre of it all, Bangkok. For most people Bangkok is the starting point after which they quickly go onto the next destination, but there is so much to this crazy city as well with such a diverse atmosphere in this city of approximately 10 million inhabitants. Explore the modern parts of the city and go shopping in the many malls such as MBK, Siam Paragon, and CentralWorld. Here you can be surprised by the modern part of the city and potentially have a delicious fancy meal at one of the rooftop bars
Afterwards you can go to the historical part of the city and be amazed by its rich cultural and historical sights. Some of the world’s most impressive Buddhist temples can be found here, which will most definitely make for some beautiful pictures to show at home. Furthermore, the Grand Palace is a must see in Bangkok and cannot be missed on a trip to Thailand. We know that Bangkok is a busy melting pot of heat, people and traffic but enjoy the city because it definitely has something unique to offer!

The next beautiful destination on the list is the beautiful south of Thailand, with many areas to go to such as Phuket, Koh Yao, Krabi, and Koh Phi Phi there will always be areas that you simply do not have enough time to fully explore. Therefor we would suggest to go to Phuket and its surrounding islands such as Koh Yao. Phuket is a versatile island located at the south-western part of the country and it is the biggest island of Thailand. Offering plenty of beaches, culture, and delicious seafood, the island will most definitely not bore you the slightest bit.
If you are looking for something unique that you see on these beautiful pictures, the bounty islands with the beautiful beaches, warm weathers, and fresh delightful cocktails, then you should try one of the surrounding islands of Phuket and one of the many paradise-like resorts on them. These resorts provide you a unique experience on-par with the Maldives.

Hua Hin is located south of Bangkok as well but north of Phuket, in-between the two and is an upcoming beach destination to relax and enjoy the lovely Thai weather. The great thing about Hua Hin is the fact that it is located in the Bay of Thailand relatively up north and on the west side, which means that the weather is quite well all year round with less rain in comparison with other beach destinations.
Royal Paradise is another name for the city as the late King of Thailand used to reside in the palace in the city. Nowadays it is known for a great holiday getaway used by international tourists and Thai like. Bangkok is only about a 2 to 3 hour ride away, making it easily accessible for a few day trip. While the area is mainly known as a beach resort town, there is so much more to offer in the region. A few markets cover the area, the monkey mountain is close-by to the city as well, and there are many more attractions and things to do in and around the area.
