TEMPO.CO, JakartaThailand is a Southeast Asian country famous for its culinary tourism and natural beauty. Foreigners are always eager to visit this country nicknamed “the Land of White Elephants.”

Of the many tourist destinations in Thailand, there are five that travelers must visit. From bustling Bangkok to mountainous Chiang Mai, here's the list of must-visit destinations in Thailand:

1. Chiang Mai

The first must-visit tourist destination in Thailand is Chiang Mai. Located in the mountainous northern region, this city is filled with ancient temples. You can also visit one of the oldest and most well-known night markets in Thailand, or take a trip down to the elephant sanctuaries.

2. Phuket

If you like natural beauty, Phuket is the right tourist destination for you in Thailand. Phuket is one of the largest islands in this Southeast Asian country complete with beautiful beaches. To get to Phuket, tourists need around one and a half hours by plane from Bangkok. In Phuket, travelers can also see Portuguese-style buildings and other mixed cultures such as Thai, Malaysian, and Hokkien.

3. Koh Samui

As one of Thailand’s most well-established island resorts, you can stay at five-star resorts while enjoying the mesmerizing tropical beauty of the beach by sunbathing, snorkeling, or scuba diving. Koh Samui is also famous for its holistic detox program. Many resorts offer detoxification programs such as yoga and meditation to maintain blood circulation and prevent toxins buildup.

4. Khao Yai Tourist Park

Khao Yai National Park is Thailand’s oldest, third-largest, and most-visited national park. This UNESCO world heritage site can be reached by two and a half hours drive from the city of Bangkok.
