Southern Thailand includes many of Thailand's most famous resorts on both the west-facing Andaman Sea coastline, and the east-facing Gulf of Thailand coast south of Chumphon.
Central Thailand, also known as the Central Plains, is the low-lying central region of Thailand.
Northern Thailand shares borders with Myanmar and Laos, as well as with the Central Plains and Isaan.
Eastern Thailand comprises the seven provinces that lie south of Isaan and east of the Central Plains, sandwiched between Bangkok and Cambodia.
Isaan, Thailand's northeast region, is an often overlooked part of the country. There's no coastline, so there are no beaches to lure sunseekers.
