Bangkok is a big capital city and a major regional hub, significantly more developed than anywhere else in Thailand.
East of Bangkok you approach the Cambodian border, and there are a scattering of beach resorts and islands along the coast of the Gulf of Thailand. Koh Chang and Koh Samet are becoming popular getaways due to easy access from Bangkok.
To the west you only need to drive a couple of hours to reach the fascinating town of Kanchanaburi and the scenic River Kwai, offering beautiful scenery and interesting history and culture.
