There are so many reasons why Thailand, the Land of Smiles, is pegged as a tourist paradise.

Visiting Thailand for the first time, especially if you are from the West, will definitely change the way you perceive Asia because Thailand’s culture has been largely independent and resistant of colonial powers, and because of this, spaces where its traditions have been well-preserved are highly accessible to tourists. Here are some of the places you must not miss on your trip to the Land of Smiles.

Bangkok

Bangkok is the loudest and most colorful melting pot in Thailand. It is the party city and also pegged as an LGBT-friendly locale for gays, lesbians, and other homosexual tourists.

There are no shortages of parties in Bangkok, and hotels, resorts and other places of accommodation are plentiful throughout the city. There’s partying, shopping, clubbing – everything you could possibly need to make your stay memorable.

Chiang Mai

Known as the Northern Capital, Chiang Mai is an immersion in Thailand’s wonderful culture. If partying is not your thing, then you need to get to Chiang Mai fast.

In addition to over five hundred temples to visit, backpacking and nature trekking is also best done in Chiang Mai. Nightlife here is low key, but there are night bazaars to visit, and you can definitely get a well-rounded experience in this city, no worries about that.

Phuket

Phuket is a province in the south of Thailand. It provides not just a bustling nightlife geared toward pleasure seekers, but also pristine beaches and great resorts for international guests. If you think wind sand beaches and idyllic palm trees are a wonderful sight, then this is definitely your destination in the country.
