Renowned for its rich diversity of culture, destinations and activities, each of Thailand’s four regions showcases its uniqueness, from the mountainous highlands with waterfalls, hill tribe villages and Lanna styled temples in the North, to the fertile river valleys home to the current and former capitols in the Central, the underrated culture-rich and gateway to Indochina, suitable for off the beaten track travellers in the Northeast and the peninsula sandwiched by the clear blue seas of the Andaman and the Gulf of Thailand in the South.

This region is home to Thailand’s current and former capitols i.e. Bangkok, Ayutthaya and Sukhothai.
