Thailand City Guide

West Thailand

The Land of Smiles
“Visitors are greeted at the airport with a sign saying ‘Welcome to the Land of Smiles’ – and it’s not just because of the friendly locals. From the azure blue of the sea and dazzling white of the sandy beaches to the verdant green of the jungle and gleaming gold of the temples, the colours of Thailand are dazzling.”

West Thailand

Western Thailand is a mountainous region that's as famed for its dense forests and nature reserves as it is its unspoiled coastline. It's a quick and easy commute from Bangkok to the coastal beach resorts of Hua Hin, the historic temples of Phetchaburi, and the lush forests of Kaeng Krachan National Park. Here's a beautiful corner of Thailand where you can enjoy activities on and off the water including kayaking, diving, snorkelling, jungle trekking, whitewater rafting and quad biking – or simply relaxing on one of its beautiful beaches.

The most popular expat community in the West is Hua Hin, which has a reasonable cost of living, a lively seaside town and laid-back lifestyle.
