Nonthaburi Province travel guide

4.3
Historic Walking Areas · Sacred & Religious Sites · Shopping Malls
Immediately northwest of Bangkok, small but densely populated Nonthaburi Province feels like a suburb of the giant metropolis rather than its own distinct region. With over one million people living in the crowded province, you could be forgiven for not realizing you'd left Bangkok. Centuries of rule under the Ayutthaya Kingdom remain visible in the fascinating temples and monasteries here, which top many tourist itineraries in Nonthaburi Province. Balance your tour by exploring the province's main geographical feature, the Chao Phraya River, and Ko Kret island, which lies in the river. As with Bangkok, take special care when walking along the road and expect drivers to do the unexpected.

Coldest place in Siam
Deep in Thailand's northern mountains, nestled against the border with Laos, Loei Province remains one of the country's quietest and least-developed areas. With gorgeous national parks, tranquil temples, a blend of cultures, and far fewer tourists than in other areas, a trip to Loei Province offers something special for those seeking a peaceful and authentic vacation. Crisp fog clings to mountain tops and wild vegetation colors the landscape. Be prepared for the chill--this high-elevation area is one of the only in Thailand where temperatures can drop below freezing.

Mae Hong Son Province, a landlocked region of Thailand, stands hemmed in by rugged mountains on the border with Myanmar. The largely rural region offers mountainous areas with mist-covered peaks that support elephant conservation projects. Rice paddies in the lowlands create impressive vistas, while the temples—with many showing an influence from Burmese architecture—have ornate, tiered central spires. Isolated hill tribes make up the majority of the population, and each possesses a unique culture which can be seen in ways from their festivals and dress to their languages and cuisine.
