One of my most visited websites has been this one about daytrips around Bangkok. As I live on the outskirts, I often go on day trips in this region. I also often take friends and relations on tours. However, I have been so busy with other projects, and also my fulltime job of teaching, that I have neglected this website. Instead of just going through updating the blogs, some were written more than fifteen years ago, I have decided to start again with all new pictures. I also decided to do this live. I am not sure how long this will take, so, in the meantime, please visit the old version by clicking here. I also have another website called Thailand Photo Map that has details including GPS coordinates of the trips that I have done around Thailand.
Map of Bangkok Day Trips:
Neighbouring Provinces to Bangkok:
The following table shows the nearest cities and provinces around Bangkok. The distances are between the capital and the provincial city as measured by Google Maps. Times may vary during rush hour traffic. For a day trip, you are looking at no more than two hours travel time. Some people go to Kanchanaburi and Pattaya as a day trip from Bangkok. But as it takes about two and a half hours I would personally do it as a two to three day trip. I have marked with an * the best places to do a day trip.

Many of the places that I feature on this website are not so easily reached by public transport. Certainly no direct transportation. You might have to change a few times. If you don’t have your own car, you could hire one for the day or even rent a taxi. This way you will have more flexibility and will be able to visit five or six locations in one day.
