Ease of Traveling around Thailand

Thailand is a country built for tourists. The Thais have gone out of their way to ensure that the country is easy to travel, so travellers can see many different parts of Thailand.

Here are some Thailand multi centre ideas:


One Week:

Bangkok- Kanchanaburi- Bangkok- Ko Samet

Bangkok is the biggest city in Thailand, and grew even more famous after the filming of the hangover. Spend some time on Kaoh San road, before heading to Kanchanaburi. This is the perfect place for river trips, national parks, and lush scenery.

From Kanchanaburi it’s back to Bangkok, before heading to Ko Samet for some rest and relaxation-island style. Soak up the sun and make sure you book your accommodation in advance, since this place is popular.

Ten Days:

Bangkok- Beaches- Chiang Mai- Lampang- Bangkok

Start in Bangkok, before heading down to the islands. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches, and Koh Samui, Krabi, and Phuket all have direct daily flights to and from Bangkok.

Grab a flight to Chiang Mai, and spend some time strolling around the old city, visiting the night markets, and getting a massage. The Elephant Nature Park is a must visit for anyone who loves animals and feels passionately about conservation.

From Chiang Mai head to Lampang, which is an easy side trip. Here you’l find the most revered temple in Thailand, which also contains the oldest wooden building in the country.

Head back to Chiang Mai for some more relaxation, before taking the night train or a flight down to Bangkok.

Two Weeks:

Bangkok- Ayutthaya- Chiang Mai- Lampang- Tribe Trekking- Chonnabot- Nakhon Tatchasima- Bangkok

From Bangkok stop in Ayutthaya, which is the former capital of Thailand. Explore the crumbling brick temples, and then grab an overnight train to Chiang Mai.

Hire a scooter in Chiang Mai, and spend a few days wandering the city before heading to Lampang. Lampang has pagodas and temples to rival Chiang Mai, with far fewer tourists.

The region is famous for tribe trekking, which can be arranged through any travel agency. Tourists can choose treks ranging from 1 night to 3 days, and will be able to savour the spectacular scenery in the hills.

Chonnabot is known for the silk weaving, so this is the place to pick up a good souvenir. watch the cowboys herding the castle, and bring a camera for the lush rice paddies and the Khmer Empire mountain temple.

From Chonnabot head to Nakhon Ratchasima, which is a busy city with excellent street food and hardly any tourists. This is a good chance to practice your Thai, and check out Farm Chokchai, where tourists learn how to ride tractors, make ice-cream, and milk cows, and watch the cowboys perform horseback stunts.

The bus back to Bangkok is only four hour away, so depending on how long you spent in each place, you can either fly home, or head down to the island for some sun and snorkelling. For more travel tips, you can visit TravelDepartment.com.
