View Where Your Phuket Resort or Samui Hotel is Located

Looking at a map of the Thailand islands, you will find that at 513,120 square kilometers, the country is the 50th largest in terms of landmass, while clocking in at 20th largest in terms of population. This means there are plenty of hotels in Koh Samui and beyond for you to enjoy. The climate is generally tropical and prone to monsoons in the months of May through September, as well as November through March.

The scenery is incredibly diverse, with the northern part of the country (Doi Inthanon) given over to mountainous terrain that peaks at 2,565 meters above sea level. Isan, in the northeast, consists largely of the Khorat Plateau, while the centre of the landmass is dominated by a river valley that runs into the Gulf of Thailand, which covers a whopping 320,000 square kilometers and is fed by the Chao Phraya, Mae Klong, Bang Pakong and Tapi Rivers. In the south we find the Malay Peninsula, which has its origin in the narrow Kra Isthmus.

Phuket Resort Location Map
 
Looking at Thailand on map from a political standpoint, we find that there are six distinct geographical regions that vary greatly from the rest in terms of population, resources, socio-economic development as well as basic geographical structure. When looking into booking Phuket resort accommodation, or any other hotel in Thailand, geographical structure should be considered. The two large rivers, namely the Chao Phraya and the Mekong, serve as the main resources of rural Thailand, in that it sustains industrial scale crop production, as well as a thriving tourism sector that depends on the clear, shallow waters along the coasts. The Gulf also represents Thailand’s industrial centre, as the main seaport functions as the entry gates for Bangkok's Inland Seaport. Another important natural resource, the Andaman Sea, provides the setting for some of the most opulent Asian resorts; as do the provinces of Phuket, Krabi, Ranong, Phang Nga and Trang, and their lush islands.

While a Thailand province map may be useful if you plan to explore the country on your own steam, finding your way around is normally pretty easy if you have chosen to align yourself with a reputable service provider who knows their way around Thailand. Please do not hesitate to contact us at The Best Hotels in Thailand directly should you have any further questions pertaining to Thailand island maps or accommodation in Thailand.
