This diverse country might take a few visits to see and do everything you have planned, but here are the 10 Best Attractions in Thailand that you must not miss out. 

The Islands

The 10 Best Attractions in Thailand

Thailand’s Islands need a section of their own because they are, by far, the best attractions in the whole country and one of the best in South East Asia. Although Thailand comprises around 1,430 islands, chances are you will not visit them all, but there are a certain few that you will continue to hear people mentioning.

The best thing about the islands in Thailand is that each one is quite different from the other, in the sense that you can go to each one for a different reason. For example, while Koh Phangan is famous for its full moon parties and all-year-round partying opportunities, Koh Phi Phi is renowned for its beaches, including the famous Maya Bay, featured in the movie ‘The Beach.’ On the other hand, Koh Tao is an excellent place for scuba diving, while Koh Samui has some great resorts and a relaxed vibe. The choice is truly yours!
