Hey everyone, sorry if this is a repeated post.
What are the key-essential spots to visit in Thailand?
I am already going to:
- Chiang Mai;
- Ko Pha Ngan;
- Ko Tao.
Thank you so much for your help!

Those are certainly fun spots, but it would depend also on what you like to do, what your budget is, what time of year you are going, and how much time you have.
The places you've picked include a few of my favorites, and are popular destinations. If you'd like to get a bit more off the beaten path, try Sukhothai or Kamphaeng Phet for ruins, Nong Khai or Trat for small city Thai life, and Kanchanaburi for outdoorsy stuff. If you want to meet MADMAC, you'll need to go to Mukdahan, which is another lovely northeastern Thailand Mekong River town.
Let us know what you like, etc., and we can make more recommendations. Regards.
Chiang Mai is simply beautiful, but commercialization takes away the essence of it a bit. As I recall the experience at the Anantara Chiang Mai Resort & Spa brings it back perfectly though. It is a picturesque resort and totally worth the cost.

Yep, we all have different tastes. I love Issan, but a lot of people find it mundane and boring. It really depends on what you're looking for.
