  Outside of Bangkok

This is a huge country with many different and varied places to visit and cultures to experience. Most popular of course are Phuket, Chiang Mai, Krabi, Pattaya.

Phuket of course was very hard hit by the 2004 Tsunami with many Thais, Australians, Europeans and other nationalities killed in the tragedy. I have not been back since but those who have say its almost impossible to see that there was such a horrendous event. Phuket is a great place, beach is lovely, hotels are great, locals are friendly, bars are always busy and the usual trades are plied along the beach and in the bars. There is everything to recommend about Phuket.

Chiang Mai I have not been to, all who do say it’s a great place, very different to Bangkok, quiet, peaceful and busy and noisy at the same time.
