More than party in Thailand
Yards of The Yard is our project to show the best places to visit in Thailand. We try to find the best place we have been or talk about someone we have met.
The Yard Hostel in Bangkok is not a party hostel, but a social one, perfect to meet other travelers and feel at home, as part of our family. ‘Yard’ in Thai mean ‘relative’ , so Yards of The Yard is our family who would love to take care of you, other hostels and hotels in Thailand we trust. That’s why we would like to recommend some places where you can meet the nice people.
So we just want to suggest the best places to visit in Thailand where we are pretty sure everyone will take care of you like a family member. The only benefit we get is that The Yard Family members (Yes, you are) will be in good hands.
Note: The Yard Hostel in Bangkok receives no commission from any place listed on this map.
Best Places to Visit in Thailand
Pai is definetly on of the best places to visit in Thailand. It’s just 2 hours from Chiangmai bus station (A-Ket, อาเขต) by minivan (150 Baht). I have been there 6 times and I love Pai because of Pai has nothing to do (for the lazy traveler). It still has a quiet, secluded feel, particularly if you stay in a wooden bungalow.
Our Yard : Baan Kati Sod
‘Kati’ is the owner of ‘Baan Kati Sod’ hotel. I met him 2 years ago. He has been running the business for 8 years. He worked for The Yard Hostel for 1 month (just for fun). Also is a very nice guy. And I definitely recommend his place if you just want to relax in a cozy place.
Saraburi is a bit north of Bangkok. It’s just 1 hour from Bangkok by bus or minivan from Mor Chit Bus Terminal (80 baht). Around November to January, Thai people will go there to see the sun flower field. Also has the cave and waterfall.
Our Yard : Baan Lom Bon Fook
‘Ball’ is the guy who own ‘Lom Bon Fook’ guesthouse. He is my friend and he will take care of you as a family member. Lom Bon Fook is not a tourist area, if you want to unplug yourself, I recommend this place.
3. Koh Si Chang
Koh Si Chang is the closest island. It’s 1:30 hours form Bangkok by bus or minivan from Ekamai Bus Terminal, and then take ferry around 30 mins to Koh Si Chang. You can rent the motorbike to explore the island.
Our Yard: Baan Yu Dee Mee Kwam Suk (Happy home)
You will see Pi Moh. I met her 8 years ago. She has a magic hand, can do everything. At her guesthouse she can give you the inspiration with good music from vinyl and good food from the sea.
4. Koh Mak
Koh Mak is near Koh Chang, but smaller, more quite and natural.
Our Yard: Pano-Resort
When I went to Koh Mak, I stayed at Pano Resort and Pi Boy is there. He is always waiting for you. Very good view, good price and good people. I definitely recommend this place to have a Thai experiencie.
5. Koh Kood
Koh Kood is bigger than Koh Mak. The beach is very beautiful. And there’s no 7-Eleven, and that’s impressive.
Our Yard: Baan Makok
I stayed at Baan Makok and in front of the house there is the river. From the back of the house, you can walk to the waterfall and also you can reach the beach by kayaking in 10 mins. Perfect place to recharge your energies.
Those are places you can feel home: Yards of The Yard!
