Be it a family vacation, a vacation with kids, friends , Thailand is the best place to go to. In fact, in recent times, it has also become an ideal destination for a dream wedding. For most people, the only two cities they know in Thailand is Bangkok and Pattaya.
Interestingly, Thailand has several other beautiful cities that has been largely unexplored by tourists all over. Not just cities, but it also has islands,rivers, historical spots and magnificent temples that hasn’t been part of the primary tours.
Most tour itineraries include a visit to Bangkok and Pattaya. They take you to the three big temples in the city, a trip to the underwater world and then finally take you to the safari world. In Pattaya ,you get to see one of the islands and the tour almost comes to a close. So here’s a list of some of the most amazing fantastico places in Thailand, that you should definitely consider in your next vacation.
Phuket : A beautiful island , 800 kms away from Thailand , it’s one of the most beautiful destinations I’ve ever been in my life. An island covered by hilltops on one side and the sea on the other, enjoys a tropical climate with moderate rainfall. The city offers plenty of history, adventurous activities and popular landmarks depicted in movies. A trip to Phi-Phi Island will make you experience a lifetime adventure as you venture into the mid Indian Ocean 3 and half hours away from Phuket.

Krabi : Another largely unexplored island, it is situated very close to Phuket. Known for its turquoise coloured sea and pristine beaches, Krabi is one of the most ideal destinations for a honeymoon. With absolutely no outside interference , you can completely be yourself in your own outfits and enjoy a blissful vacation. There are several direct flights from Bangkok to both Phuket and Krabi almost every one hour.
Chiang Mai: Another cultural destination in Thailand, Chiang Mai has mostly only a Thai population with a mix of Chinese nationals. However, apart from that , the no of visitors to Chiang Mai is very low surprisingly. A city filled with cultural places, grand temples built of gold, huge zoos, national parks and Buddhist temples, museums and waterfalls, and you have something for everyone. It’s definitely a tour who likes to explore new territories by road and want to experience the real country in its raw self.
Other fantastico destinations in Thailand include Hua Hin, Udon Thani and Chiang Rai.
