THAILAND HOLIDAY DESTINATIONS
Some top Thailand holiday destinations include Bangkok, the Andaman Sea area, the Gulf of Thailand, Northern Thailand and the National Parks. It is recommended to choose 1 or 2 main destinations to visit during your typical 2-week holiday in Thailand, as you can spend too much time travelling from one area to another.
Thailand offers so much to do and see in all seasons of the year, from beautiful beaches, jungle, mountains and national parks to cities like Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai and Pattaya. It’s easy to fall in the trap of trying to see too much in a short period of time. This would be time-consuming and exhausting without leaving you with much time to relax and enjoy. A little tip from us: travel at night, where possible, using night trains for example, and you can save time and money for a hotel night.
There are a myriad of visits and attractions to do, see and experience in Thailand, like temples, markets, tours, sports activities, SPAs, the amazing Thai cuisine. So much to do and so little time! You can always ask for advice at your resort when you get there, but we recommend planning in advance. The secret to a successful once in a lifetime holiday is planning, planning and more planning. And relax and enjoy once you get there!
This is why we created KohPlanner, a comprehensive and easy to use tool to find all the information you need about Thailand, to be able to choose and book hotels, transportation, car rentals, restaurants and add them to your travel lists/plans. These plans can then be shared with friends and accessed offline.

Top local dive sites: Ko Surin, Ko Similan, Richelieu Rock.
