Thailand is known for its numerous dreamlike beaches, so why not enhance your Mekong adventure with a relaxing seaside stay? There are many beautiful beach resorts close to Bangkok, like Hua Hin, a former fishing town. If you don’t mind taking another flight, there is also the popular Island of Phuket, where you’ll find one dream beach after another. Many hotels here even have their own beach, in other words—guaranteed relaxation! Last but not least is the Khao Lak region just north of Phuket on the mainland—perfect for relaxation seekers, away from any commotion, and a paradise of long white-sand beaches!
