This is seriously such a great guide to Thailand! Love how you break it down for all interests - you can relax on beaches, explore temples or hit the shops! Super helpful for anyone planning a trip there.

For me, the northern mountains around Chiang Mai look epic for exploring - have you been trekking there? I'd love to hear your recommendations? I found luxurious amenities in America pretty organized.
