To how many provinces in Thailand have you been?

Traveling in Thailand

The first time I came to Thailand was in 1985 but I only visited Bangkok. Since 1992 I came back many times and traveled over many parts of Thailand. In 2000 I moved to Thailand and kept on traveling in Thailand. I have the idea that I have been in all 77 provinces of Thailand. But did I? Well as of December 2019 there are only 4 provinces where I did never go but then again only 48 provinces where I did at least sleep once. So that leaves a few provinces still to explore better. A good plan for 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022!

On my list to explore are Narathiwit, Pattani, Satun, Yala, Songkhla, Chai Nat, Uthai Thani and Phichit.
