    Three weeks in Thailand

    A commonly asked question is how long should we spend in Thailand? When planning a trip to Thailand, 2 to 3 weeks is an ideal timeframe because it will allow you to spend a few days in different locations and really take in the sights in the various regions of the country without feeling too rushed. There are all sorts of activities to do in Thailand and some are specific to the location so it’s important to decide what you want to see in Thailand and what you want to do. Taking pre-arranged Thailand tours may suit you best or may prefer designing your own 3 week Thailand itinerary. Your adventure can be as action-packed or as chilled as you like. Whether you just want to relax on beautiful beaches for a few weeks and sail archipelagos, see some elephants and go hiking through jungle-clad mountains, attend a full moon party, bar hop in Khao San road, eat street food and shop until you drop in Bangkok – all this is possible within 3 weeks in Thailand.

    The Ultimate 3 Week Thailand Itinerary

    For First-timers to Thailand

    A typical three-week Thailand itinerary that is especially good for first-time visitors begins in Bangkok. Some of the most impressive Bangkok temples are within the heart of the city and should be seen. Wat Phra Kaew or The Temple of the Emerald Buddha is the most frequented temple in Bangkok city centre. Located on the grounds of the Grand Palace, its prized jewel is the Emerald Buddha, carved from a block of pure jade which was originally housed in Chiang Mai.

    Next to the Grand Palace, is Wat Pho or The Temple of the Reclining Buddha’. Here you will be astonished by the 43-metre-long Reclining Buddha statue covered with gold leaf and feet encrusted with exquisite mother-of-pearl decorations. Located on the Chao Phraya River, opposite the Grand Palace is the magnificent 17th century, Wat Arun or Temple of the Dawn. The distinctive shape of the temple resembles ancient Khmer-style towers and is a beautiful spot to enjoy the sunset by the river. Bangkok tours can take you throughout the city to all the main temple sites.

    Other attractions include shopping malls, floating markets, stroll night markets where you can try all types of street food, party in the many clubs and bars on Khao San Road and much more over the course of 4-5 days. Then from there, you can travel to some nearby world-heritage listed ancient cities of Ayutthaya (13th century) or Lopburi (11th century) where you will need a day or two at each location to absorb their history and scale.

    In just 2.5 hours by bus or car from Bangkok, you can be in Kanchanaburi province, where you can visit World War II relics, the notable River Kwai Bridge, WWII museums, and cemeteries like the Death railway museum which you can cover in a couple of days. There are several national parks you can add to your trip, with cascading waterfalls such as Sai Yok and Erawan National Parks along with Khao Laem Lake. Both have excellent trekking routes and amazing flora and fauna. You can easily spend a few days in this region.

    Step back in time, and add on a visit to the UNESCO world heritage site Sukhothai Historical. The former capital of Siam covers an area of about 70 square kilometres and contains more than 190 historical ruins complete with fortification and a moat that existed during the golden age of Thai civilisation around 13th to 14th century. Sukhothai is approximately 430 kilometres north of Bangkok. The most direct transport there is by bus which will take about eight hours. If that’s too long, you can combine a train from Bangkok to Phitsanulok (5 hours) then a bus to Sukhothai (1.5 hours). This is the more comfortable option especially if you are travelling with children. The quickest option is by plane (1.5 hours) using Bangkok Airlines who services this route.

    Then you fly up to Chiang Mai, spend time exploring the temples of the old city, shopping in the night bazaars, visiting an elephant sanctuary, and taking day trips to Doi Inthanon National Park to hike to the summit and Chiang Rai to explore its unusual temples and art galleries.

    From the north, you can take a flight to the south to enjoy some beach time. Stay on the coastal area of Khao Lak on the Andaman Sea, for pristine natural beauty, translucent waters and powder-white sand beaches, flourishing marine life and outstanding diving and snorkelling. As well as lush rainforests, waterfalls, lakes and national parks. In less than two hours drive, you can be on the island of Phuket and explore this popular tourist hot spot and then go island-hopping from there.

    It’s also possible to focus three weeks in Thailand on one or two regions and explore these more closely rather than trying to cover the whole country from south to north. Check out our guides to these specific regions: southern Thailand or central or northern Thailand for itinerary ideas for 3 weeks in Thailand.

    Thai Islands

    Each island offers its own unique personality, with lush rainforests, rocky formations, white sandy beautiful beaches, top snorkelling and diving spots, swimming and water sports, beach bars, and coral reefs. Whether you’re looking to stay active with water sports, swimming and snorkelling, or simply wanting to chill with a fresh coconut or beer in hand or dance the night away at a beach party – you’ll find a Thai island to suit your needs for your next holiday to Thailand.

    You can take a few different routes for your southern trip to Thailand, but these are the most popular:

    Gulf of Thailand Islands:

    Koh Phangan/ Koh Samui/ Ang Thong Marine Park

    Koh Phangan has a global reputation for being the go-to destination for Thailand’s first Full Moon Party which has been running for the past 20 years. Beyond that, the island offers some good snorkelling and diving spots, hiking opportunities such as trekking to the Khao Ra mountain viewpoint or to one of the islands’ seven waterfalls, exploring via sea kayaks, and plenty of gorgeous beaches.

    From Koh Phangan its only a 40-minute ferry ride to Koh Samui if you want to take a day trip or stay overnight. Further afield, Ang Thong Marine Park is a magnificent archipelago of 42 protected tropical islands, less than an hour speed boat ride from Koh Phangan, making it the perfect distance for a full-day tour.

    Koh Samui/ Koh Phangan/Ang Thong National Park/Koh Tao

    As Koh Samui is situated in the Gulf of Thailand, day trips to other picturesque paradises are so easy. Koh Phangan is closer at about 12 kilometres away and is world-renowned for its monthly Full Moon Party. Besides that, it has pristine white sandy beaches, untouched wilderness, and crystal clear waters with over 20 dive sites.

    Ang Thong National Park is 28 kilometres away, made up of an archipelago of 42 islands, including the famous Koh Phi Phi islands. This area is truly a diving and snorkelling mecca.

    Koh Taen is just a few hundred metres from the Southwest coast of Koh Samui. This unspoilt small island is visited for its rich marine life in its protected reefs. Or travel further afield for a trip to the natural beauty of Koh Tao.

    Andaman Sea Islands

    Phuket/Koh Phi Phi/Koh Lanta/ Similan/Surin Islands plus Khao Sok National Park

    Phuket is the largest island in Thailand and one of the most popular tourist destinations. It is most famous for its stunning tropical beaches so if you are looking primarily for a beachy holiday with modern comforts, then Phuket is a great choice. Phuket city is a quaint heritage-style town with colourful Sino-Portuguese architecture. The most revered landmark on the island is the Big Buddha and is a must-see. This 45 metres tall giant Buddha statue perched on Nakkerd Hills, offers the best sweeping views of the island and is a very peaceful religious site.

    Phuket airport is international so its easy to fly and out. Bangkok to Phuket is only a 1-hour 25-minute flight so its a good option to add to the Thailand itinerary if you want some beach time after Bangkok. Basing yourself in Phuket you can then take day trips or stay a few days in some of the following isles: Phi Phi islands, Koh Yao Noi, Koh Yao Yai, Phang Nga Bay, Surin and Similan National Park islands, and James Bond Island.

    Koh Phi Phi

    Koh Phi Phi consists of six islands. The region is instantly recognizable by its iconic vertical towers known as “karsts”, capped with green vegetation and scattered white sandy enclaves and tropical coral waters. This incredibly beautiful archipelago is located off the mainland coast of Krabi. Krabi and Phuket to Phi Phi island take about 45-minutes via speed boat or an almost two-hour ferry. The only inhabited island is Koh Phi Phi Do and it hosts its own mini Full Moon Party every month. Thus making it a must-do on backpacking in Thailand itineraries. But the most famous island in the archipelago is Koh Phi Phi Leh, home to Maya Bay which featured in the cult classic film “The Beach”, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. However, the Thai government closed this area in 2018 due to damaged coral reefs impacted by tourism. The region remains closed for coral rejuvenation but new eco-tourism projects see it eyeing a possible 2021/2022 opening.

    Khao Sok National Park

    Or break up a beach holiday with a day trip to the incredible Khao Sok National Park for some jungle trekking. Only 1.5 hours drive overland from Phuket, the 160 million-year-old rainforest covers a staggering 739 square kilometres, features rich wildlife and flora, limestone structures, and the scenic Cheow Lan Lake in the heart of the park. A popular choice is to stay in the luxury floating tented camps or floating bungalows on the waters of the lake, where you can wake up and dive into the turquoise waters from your door or spend the morning kayaking and exploring the lake at your own pace.

    Visitors are only allowed to venture 3 km into the national park independently without a guide. If you wish to venture deeper, you must arrange to go with a local guide. Khao Sok National Park tours are available all year round including cave tours and night safaris.

    Most visitors come to the park and stay 2-3 nights and participate in one of many Khao Sok tours which will usually include your tour guide, accommodation, activities such as trekking and transfers from Surat Thani or Khao Lak.

    The Similan Islands

    The Similan Islands are about 119 km north-west of Phuket Island, and 50 km west of Khao Lak and takes around one hour depending on which island you want to visit. They are a protected region and only open from mid-October through to mid-May with just three of the islands having means of basic accommodation. You can only stay on three of the eleven Similan Islands in accommodation such as a bungalow or campsite.

    The Similans are world-renowned for spectacular diving opportunities. Koh Similan is the largest island famous for its iconic huge boulders and powder white sand. Vistors like to trek up the highest mountain of the Mo Ku National Park and to enjoy spectacular diving and snorkelling around the island. Koh Bon delivers beauty with stunning strips of white sandy beaches and some of the better diving spots but you can’t stay here and is therefore only accessible for a day trip via the other Similan islands. These waters are a magnet for more advanced divers who enjoy diving around the sea ridge that sharply drops to 40-45 metres. Koh Ta Chai is best known for its impeccable diving conditions and peaceful remoteness.

    Koh Lanta- 4 island trip

    An idyllic island paradise, Koh Lanta is made up of two islands Yai and Noi, and they have gained popularity for their relaxed atmosphere, beach bumming lifestyle, national park, heritage town and close proximity to a host of other Thai islands with rich marine life and famous diving and snorkelling spots. Windsurfing, deep-sea fishing, sailing and heading out on a catamaran, scuba diving and snorkelling are some of the most popular water sports on Koh Lanta.

    One of the top attractions in Koh Lanta and best day trips is a four island tour. These tours sail to the islands of Koh Chuak, Mook, Kradan, and Ngai where you can snorkel and swim and include a visit to the remarkable Emerald Cave and its not-so-secret vivid green lagoon on Koh Mook that is reached by swimming through an eery pitch-black 80-metre long passageway with your tour guide leading.

    Koh Tao

    You can reach the island from nearby Koh Samui or Koh Phangan with boats operating daily. Most of the Koh Tao coastline features steep, rocky shorelines and there are 11 bays and 10 capes throughout.  Koh Tao is famous for its soft and hard coral reefs, rich marine life, clear warm waters, overall with a relaxed atmosphere and lifestyle, making it a must-do destination for thousands of visitors a year. Koh Tao is one of the best islands in Thailand for scuba diving with many sites around the island and other areas beyond that can be reached through a day trip. The best visibility for diving is July through to September.

    Krabi/Railay Beach

    Krabi is the perfect holiday destination. With over 150 islands off its lengthy coastline, magnificent white sand beaches, lush tropical hinterland, iconic limestone cliffs, caves, waterfalls and abundant native flora and fauna. From the Krabi mainland, in just 10 short minutes on a boat from Ao Nang, you can explore the Railay Beach peninsula. Railay Beach is also regarded as one of the top places for rock climbing in Thailand, with a variety of routes for beginners through to advanced climbers. From Krabi, you can take a day trip to the Phi Phi islands and Koh Lanta.

    Thailand Eastern Islands

    Koh Chang/Koh Mak/ Koh Kood

    Nearby Cambodia, you visit Koh Chang, Koh Mak and Koh Kood. You can island-hop, mix up the quiet southern and eastern coastlines of Koh Chang, with the hippy cum hipster Koh Mak, and Koh Kood’s luxurious resorts.

    Koh Chang is the third largest island in Thailand, after Phuket and Koh Samui, and is situated in the Gulf near Cambodia and is part of an archipelago of 52 islands that sit within Mu Ko Chang National Park. Given about 70% of Koh Chang is covered in rainforests, mountains and beaches, visitors come to the island to enjoy its natural beauty.

    From Koh Chang, Koh Mak is approximately 20 kilometres south which can be reached via speedboat with the journey taking about one hour. Compact and flat, Koh Mak is good for cycling with most of the island is covered with rubber tree and betel nut tree plantations.

    Khao Lak

    Only approximately 100 kilometres north of Phuket within Phang Nga province is the coastal area of Khao Lak on the Andaman Sea. It is world-renowned for its pristine natural beauty, translucent waters and powder white sand beaches, flourishing marine life and outstanding diving and snorkelling. As well as lush rainforests, waterfalls, lakes and national parks. Khao Lak is considered one of the top dive destinations in the world and has much to be explored.

    3 weeks in Central Thailand Itinerary

    For a 3weeks central Thailand trip, you can explore the capital Bangkok for up to 5 days. A great way to sightsee is via the taxi boats on the Chao Phraya River and the canal systems throughout the city. You can sail to see the major temples, the Grand Palace, Chinatown and famous night markets for street food, shopping malls, floating markets, nightlife. Even catch a live Muay Thai fight as they happen in stadiums around the city. Then travel to some nearby world-heritage listed ancient cities and spend a day or two in each place: Ayutthaya (13th century) and Lopburi (11th century). You could also add a day trip to Khao Yai National Park 3 hours from Bangkok, and it is certainly worth the trip with all kinds of trekking trials available. This is Thailand’s first official national park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site and you can easily spend a few days there as a welcome break from the concrete jungle of the capital.

    In just 2.5 hours by bus or car from Bangkok, you can be in Kanchanaburi province, where you can visit WWII relics, the notable River Kwai Bridge and WWII museums and cemeteries like the Death railway museum or Hellfire Pass museum which you can cover in a number of days. You can visit the unique Wat Tham Sua or “Tiger’s Cave Temple”, with tigers everywhere and an impressive golden Buddha right in the heart of the temple complex, situated upon a mountain with beautiful views of the River Kwai.

    There are several national parks you can add to your trip, with cascading waterfalls such as Sai Yok and Erawan National Parks along with Khao Laem Lake. Both have excellent trekking routes so you can spend a few days in both parks to appreciate the natural habitat then go back to Bangkok.

    Another option heading further north is to visit the UNESCO world heritage site Sukhothai Historical Park which is approximately 430 kilometres from Bangkok. This can be reached in a short 1.5 hour flight from Bangkok or a train then bus (6.5 hours travel time). The Sukhothai Kingdom (1238 – 1438) was the capital of the kingdom of ancient Siam situated in the upper Chao Phraya basin. The former capital of Siam covers an area of about 70 square kilometres and contains more than 190 historical ruins complete with fortification. Self-guided or led biking tours are a fantastic way to take in the marvels of this ancient city at your own pace. Then head back to Bangkok, and for some beach time, you could go to Pattaya or Hua Hin.

    Northern Thailand Itinerary

    After staying a number of days in Bangkok and sightseeing, you can take a flight from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. The ancient fortified Chiang Mai Old city will delight with over 300 temples to explore.

    The 16th century Wat Sri Suphan or Silver Temple in the old city has solid silver stupas that twinkle in the daylight. Also located right in the Old City, is Wat Chedi Luang with its enormous crumbling main monument standing 80 metres tall. The temple complex dates back to 1385 and was once the home to the most cherished Emerald Buddha, which is now on display in the Grand Palace in Bangkok.

    The most visited site in Nothern Thailand is the 14th century Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, located within Doi Suthep National Park. This most revered temple is crowned by a majestic glistening gold plated 24-metre towering monument. The drive to this site is scattered with mighty waterfalls and tropical rainforest making it a brilliant day out. Wat Umong is a 700-year-old bell-shaped stone pagoda complex and monastery in the forest of Doi Pui Mountain. This is a place of worship with many resident Buddhist monks and features mediation tunnels, old ruins, statues and fountains.

    Other things to do include shopping in the night bazaars, doing a half-day Thai cooking class, and visiting an elephant sanctuary.

    From Chiang Mai, take a minivan to Pai where you can walk the Bamboo Bridge that stretches through the tranquil rice paddies, stop on the way at Pam Bok waterfalls, hike the Pai canyon for a spectacular panoramic sunset and soothe weary muscles in the nearby Pai hot springs. Pai is famous for organic food cafes and yoga retreats so eat well and add in a yoga class. Stay a few days then head 2 hours drive to Mae Hong Son.

    The picturesque town of Mae Hong Son is set on a large lake near the Myanmar border. Here you can go river rafting and explore the Tham Lod cave system, visit ethnic hill-tribe villages, and see amazing waterfalls such as Mo Paeng and Pombok, the most revered Shan-style temple known as Wat Phra That Doi Kong Mu and spend time strolling the town’s walking street for tasty local food and handicrafts.

    You can then travel directly to Chiang Rai. Bus or drive to Chiang Rai (3.5 hrs from Chiang Mai ) to discover the bizarre and incredible, White Temple. Created by Chiang Rai-born visual artist Chalermchai Kositpipat this elaborate temple and complex combine elements of modernity with Buddhist symbolism to comment on humanity. It features detailed sculptures, reminiscent of Gaudi which create a unique surrealistic impression in pure white plaster with white small glass inserts so it glimmers in the sunlight.

    At the other end of the spectrum, you can visit the Black House ( Baan Dam Museum) created by artist Thawan Duchanee. This macabre work combines contemporary art rooted in Buddhist traditions and features installations, sculptures and paintings, all themed in black. There are other impressive Lanna-style temples, art galleries and cuisine to be discovered in Chiang Rai.

    Beyond Chiang Rai, you can onwards to the Golden Triangle where two rivers intersect creating a three-way border between Thailand, Laos and Myanmar and learn about the region’s notorious history. Less than 10 km from the Golden Triangle is Thailand’s oldest town -Chiang Saen which was a former Lanna kingdom city. In the town, you can stroll near the lake, peruse the Chiang Saen National Museum and the various Lanna-style Wats or temples.

    From Chiang Rai, you can travel back to Chiang Mai, then onwards to Nan which takes about 4 hours by road. This provincial town only integrated into Thailand 100 years ago so it still maintains a quiet serenity, with charming culturally rich villages, vast rice patties and majestic mountains. Here you will find Doi Phu Kha National Park. It is a wonderful place to go hiking and exploring in the caves, as its valleys spill into the Luang Prabang Range.

    The Nan National Museum showcases an impressive collection of traditional arts and artefacts from the various ethnic groups in the north of Thailand. You can view local archaeological finds, royal regalia and weaponry, religious artefacts, silverwork, textiles and tribal costumes.

    Then you if you’re feeling fit, you can climb the 300 odd steps to enjoy sweeping views of Nan and the striking 29 foot Golden Buddha (also known as the Blessing Buddha) at Wat Phra That Khao Noi. The best times to go are at sunrise or sunset. Or visit the peaceful 14th century Wat Phra That Chae Haeng and the onsite meditation centre, located on a hill just across the river from Nan town that houses a famous Buddha relic.

    Another important temple to learn about Nan culture is Wat Phumin which was originally built in 1596 in Thai Lü architecture. The external temple is decorated by large ornate mythical Naga serpent heads at the front, with their serpentine bodies extending over the balustrades towards the entrance. Inside you can find ancient vegetable-dyed frescoes depicting the life and times of the 19th century as well as portrayals of the epic tales of the Buddha.

    From Nan, head back to Chiang Mai and spend a few more days before heading to the UNESCO world heritage site Sukhothai Historical Park. The distance between Chiang Mai and Sukhothai is about 300 kilometres which takes about 4.5 hours to drive by car.

    For an excellent day trip to learn about wildlife, about 1.5 hours north of Sukhothai is the Boon Lotts Elephant Sanctuary who take care of rescued and retired elephants who live in the 750 acres of forested and protected land. Here elephants live with dignity and respect without being subjected to any work or entertainment duties.

    After that, you can return to Chiang Mai before heading back to Bangkok and completing your northern Thailand action-packed 3 week itinerary.
