This post will help you get the most out of your trip with some great tips on what to do in each region of Thailand, where to stay, how to get around, and the best places for shopping.

Whether you plan on staying for a week or two or exploring the Kingdom for months on end, this guide will make sure you have everything you need for an Unforgettable Vacation.


Section 1: Planning Your Trip

In this section, I’ll cover what’s included in the Vacation packages and events I personally book to make sure you don’t have to spend any extra money.



Bangkok is Thailand’s capital city. A bustling metropolis, with more than 9 million people, it’s packed with sights, sounds, and people. In fact, it’s such a busy place that it’s best to plan on renting a car to get around during your visit (you can also rent an auto-rickshaw). 

Whether you want to sight-see on your own or take a guided tour, the best ways to get around in Bangkok are:

Buses: Bangkok is currently one of the fastest-growing cities in Asia and you can often see rows of buses in traffic. For more details, check out the Bangkok Transport Authority website. Bangkok is currently one of the fastest-growing cities in Asia and you can often see rows of buses in traffic.


Khao Lak

Enjoy a Surf Cure in Thailand

On the eastern side of the island of Koh Samui lies the popular surfing hotspot of Khao Lak. Khao Lak offers some of the best surfing in Thailand. 

There are plenty of great surf schools to hire, plenty of rental shos, and loads of restaurants and bars to visit along the beach. It’s a great place to learn how to surf and have a little fun.

Khao Takiab

Explore the Surprising Myanmar Border Town

Few people realize that Thailand has an amazing border town right on its border. Khao Takiab is a fun and interesting place with fantastic sunsets, scenic mountains, unique markets, and delicious local food. 

It’s a great place to get out of the city for a while. There are also lots of pretty mountains nearby to enjoy hiking.



If you plan to stay in Phuket, chances are you’re looking for a few things: beaches, beachside bars, gorgeous resorts, white sand, blue water, and lots of shopping opportunities. 

This is the ultimate tropical paradise for a full-time retiree, thanks to all the local cultural activities, the local food scene, and the rich history. 

There’s something here for everyone, from an adrenaline-fueled mountain bike adventure to diving trips to the latest and greatest designer stores. And speaking of shopping…there’s literally a street for that! 

More than a dozen designated shopping districts line the main arteries in Phuket. If you need something off the beaten path, there’s plenty of room to explore.


Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai has a lot to offer. The city is filled with stunning ancient ruins and is a must-visit destination for history buffs. Its popularity as a backpacker’s paradise has led to great tourism infrastructure in the area, which is now a destination in its own right. 

You’ll find everything from lively night markets to antique shops, and a host of terrific restaurants to enjoy.

There is also a range of fun activities to try, including long-tail boat rides, riding elephants, and swimming with crocodiles. 

It’s easy to get around the city in Chiang Mai, as long-tail buses and tuk-tuks are all readily available.


Koh Samui

Koh Samui is one of Thailand’s most popular vacation destinations. What started out as a vacation for locals quickly became the stuff of tourists’ nightmares. Koh Samui has a reputation for being “party central”. 

But what makes the island any less appealing is the extremely high volume of tourists, not to mention the aggressive tuk-tuks and drunken tourists!

In recent years, however, Koh Samui has tried to tone down the party atmosphere to create a more family-friendly destination. It is now no longer the party capital of Thailand but is still considered a popular destination for Vacation and the weather is a lot more pleasant than it used to be.

Here are some of the things to do on Koh Samui:

Cruise to Koh Lanta and Koh Phi Phi.



Located in northern Thailand, Krabi is home to most of the island’s beaches, including Ao Nang and Krabi Beach. This island is known for its mountainous terrain and gorgeous views, which make it an incredibly popular tourist destination.

The most popular beaches are those along with the Phi Phi Don (Elephant Island) and Phi Phi Leh islands, as well as in the bays in Krabi Town, such as Nai Yang and Pai in Ao Nang. 

There are a number of beautiful temples and ancient temples in the area that you can visit as well. Krabi is known for its food, many of which are inspired by local flavours, like Krabi’s famous crab curry.

Koh Phangan

On this island, you can experience world-class dive sites and climb the Phi Phi Do


Hua Hin

Hua Hin is one of the most popular beach towns in Thailand. Its beautiful white sand and clear turquoise waters will make you want to stay in this seaside paradise for as long as possible on Vacation. There are lots of great restaurants, beaches, and bars around town so you’re sure to find something you like, especially if you’re a beach lover.

Visit any of these beaches for a relaxing day on the sand, enjoy a sunset drink at one of the popular restaurants, and stroll along the numerous streets full of shops and restaurants.

There are plenty of luxury hotels in the area so you’ll be sure to stay somewhere really nice. The Vagabondia Thai Resort and Spa is a beautiful property right on the beach and has just received four stars from the prestigious Boutique Hotel Guide.
