If you haven’t been to Thailand yet, for sure it’s on your list of destinations to visit at least once in your life. Many of you have asked us to recreate an incredible map of your adventures in Thailand.
We know that choosing is very difficult, but with a superhuman effort we have chosen 5 places in Thailand that are not-to-be-missed!
The capital of Thailand is well known for being one of the most vibrant cities in the world. It is impossible that you do not live incredible adventures walking through its streets. The city is a mixture of modernity and ancient culture and history, which you can see in places like Wat Arun or Wat Pho. We recommend that you do not miss the Chatuchak weekend market. Did you know that there are more than 300,000 street food stalls in the city?
Remember that the rules for visiting the temples are strict and they will not let you in if you are not dressed properly.
Anna and Federico have a million unforgettable stories of the city from their 2020 Thailand trip. They asked us for a white map to remember their 13-day route through the Thai country. Look how it turned out:

2.- Chiang Mai
Chiang Mai is almost the antithesis of Bangkok. When you get here you will find incredible landscapes between mountains and buddhist temples. Among the most amazing temples are Wat Phra Singh and Wat Chedi Luang.
A visit to the Elephant Nature Park to relax and unwind in the land of the giants is a plan that would fascinate anyone.
But that’s not all, night markets are also a must in Chiang Mai, so you will have to save time and energies for the night bazaar (don’t miss Sunday Walking Street).
In 2019 Fabio visited this incredible place on his 16-day trip to Thailand, he travelled more than 2780 km between boats, buses and planes. Not bad at all!
5 places to see in Thailand

If there was a way to describe this place it would be: as the most desired place in the world. Located in the south of Thailand, it’s a place where we can find a great variety of activities, including hiking and rockclimbing.
You must not miss this paradise: Wat Tham Sua, also known as the tiger’s cave. Wat Tham Sua is a spiritual respite located near the city of Krabi. After the impressive series of stairs, you can access “the Buddha’s footprint”, from where you get 360º views of the entire archipelago and the Andaman Sea. A luxury for the senses and without any doubt the perfect landscape for a photo on Instagram where filters will not be necessary.
We recommend you not to miss the Railey enclave, although you will have to take a boat. In Khao Khanab Nam you will be conquered by its mountains of more than 100 meters high.

Visiting Ayutthava is mandatory for those who are passionate about history and want to know Thailand from the inside. This place was full of monasteries, temples, statues… which today represent the most interesting archaeological ruins that you can imagine. It is difficult to tell you what to visit, but our essentials would be Bang Pa-In Palace, Wat Lokaya Sutha, Wat Phra Si Sanphet and Wat Chaiwatthanaram, where you will find 120 seated Buddha statues.
This place is so rich because it represents the capital of the ancient kingdom of Siam, which is why it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and one of the few that can be visited.
After a long walk you will be hungry, so don’t forget to eat something authentic at one of the stalls at the Ayutthaya floating market.
5.- Similan Islands
Similan Islands diving paradise
Located off the coast of Phang Nga, the Similan Islands Marine National Park (which also passes through the Mu Ko Similan National Park) attracts divers from all over the world. Water lovers can spend hours admiring the park’s coral reefs and marine life, while beach bums can spend time sunbathing on the unspoiled stretches of white sand of the Similan Islands. And for bird watchers, the park offers ample opportunities to search for various species that call it home, including Nicobar pigeons and pink terns. However, keep in mind that the park closes annually during the monsoon season (May to mid-October).
And now that you know where to start your trip in Thailand, we wish that you enjoy the trip and that you live the best of adventures. Remember that we will be here waiting to recreate your incredible map of Thailand!
