I travelled around quite a bit these last 3 months and visited Bangkok, Hua hin, Cha am, Chiang Mai, Udon Thani and Sakhon nakon. I found all the places had their own charm and enjoyed staying in each one for different reasons. I can't say I have got a least favourite!

I went to Koh Samui in 1987 & only stayed 3 days but it was more of a backpacker destination back then.

However I'm in no hurry to return.

I've enjoyed all the cities and towns I've visited except for Hat Yai. 

Not a city but part of it.... Khao San Road is horrible and won't be going there again.

I don't like Phuket.

It's expensive, mafia runs everything, nightlife is crap, feck all to do, people are rude, natural environment has been destroyed.

My least favourite place in Pattaya is Soi 6.

In nearly 40 years of visiting Bangkok I've never been to the Khao San Road and it's likely I never will.

For me it was Korat, found it a very uncharismatic city, reminded me of Stoke in the UK, a pretty boring place, didn't inspire me to return.

Koh Sumet for me..

Every time we have booked on line its been a mess when we have arrived and every room stinks of damp.

in fact the last time we booked it was for 4 nights and we packed up and left after one night.

Doi Suthep , went there one year March- could see fields being burnt off on the drive out from Chiang Mai.

The temple was great but the view from of Chiang Mai from the top was mass of pollution

You're not the first person that said that.

Those khazis in soi 7, fucking rotten. 

Which reminded me of my least favourite  place, the bogs at Zab bar on walking street.🤢

Departures area in Soyawannablowmi Airport.

Can't believe I got there first!  😃

I agree with those who say that there's something to like about virtually every place in Thailand.  I'll continue racking my brain.

Unless your into backpackers, people trying to sell you bags of laughing gas, overpriced drinks and beers, music that will burst your eardrums and the sheer amount of folk that it's uncomfy to walk.... Your missing nothing coxy.

Didn't think much of Koh Chang. Been once, in no hurry to go again.

Sign of madness replying to my own post but...🤔

From today's BKK post, obviously in March, today at Doi Suthep

"

A fire in Doi Suthep-Pui National Park in Chiang Mai sent air pollution in the northern province to record highs.

Although the blaze -- which broke out on Wednesday evening -- has been brought under control, the damage it left behind is extensive, Chiang Mai governor, Charoenrit Sanguansat, said on Thursday.

He added that the bushfire also sent PM2.5 levels in the area to "record levels" of around 1,000 microgrammes per cubic metre (µg/m³), 20 times above levels considered safe by the Pollution Control Department (PCD).

Mr Charoenrit said that almost 500 local officials and soldiers from the 3rd Army Region were called in to fight the blaze.

They spent more than 14 hours bringing the bushfire under control, he said.

In Bangkok, a government spokeswoman said the prime minister was gravely concerned by the fire."

For my first couple of weeks back in Mae Sot there was a constant haze which virtually blocked out direct sunshine. It was totally caused by clearing the fields of the last crop by burning whatever was left.

Soi 6 would be my least favourite soi in Pattaya.

Pattaya for me, I used to love it years ago and spend 3/4 weeks at a time there. Now 3/4 days is plenty of time just to catch up with some pals.
