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 2018 there are only 4 provinces where I did never go but then again only 47 provinces where I did at least sleep once. So that leaves a few provinces still to explore better. A good plan for 2019!
  • ✅ = Provinces where I stayed at least 1 time overnight
  • 🔍 = Provinces where I did travel & visit places but did never stay overnight
  • 🚘 = Provinces I went thru by car / motorbike / bus but never visited any place or stayed overnight (10 provinces)
  • ❌ = Provinces I never gone to (only 4 provinces)
