We’ve visited various cities within Thailand on multiple occasions and have put together a number of articles that should help you plan your trip as extensively as you require.

Bangkok

Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and more often than not the place you’ll start your Thailand adventure. You can easily spend anything from a couple of nights to over a week experiencing some of the major tourist attractions here such as; Wat Pho and The Grand Palace.

There are two airports that serve the capital of Thailand, Bangkok. The first is Don Muang Airport, which often covers budget airlines with domestic flights within Thailand and the rest of Asia.

Don Muang Airport is easy to get to from Bangkok City Centre and has three incredible airport lounges for those with an airport lounge pass such as a Priority Pass or those who are looking for an additional level of luxury prior to a flight.

The second of Bangkok’s two airports is Suvarnabhumi Airport, this is the world’s ninth busiest airport and sees both international and domestic flights daily with more than 48 million passengers annually.

There’s also a number of major organised tours you can do here that will take you out to explore some of the more rural areas of the city, or even on the backstreets to experience some of the fine, unique food the city has to offer.

Phuket

Phuket is one of the many party sides of Thailand. You can travel here from the capital of Bangkok easily by plane or overnight bus. Phuket has two sides, the party beach life of Patong and the historical, more cultured side of Phuket Old Town.

If you want a taste of the beach life without the nightlife side of Patong while in Phuket there’s still a number of great locations including the incredibly tranquil Sirinat National Park or even Kata and Karon beach.

If big cities like Bangkok aren’t your thing then you could easily spend ten nights (or more) on the laid back south of the island experiencing the likes of Phuket, Krabi and Phi Phi Island.
