Thailand is made up of several distinct regions geographically, including the highlands to the north, the Khorat Plateau in the northeast, bordering the Mekong River in the east.
The interior of the country is mostly flat lowlands and river valleys, with more coastal regions to the south and southern isthmus.
The level of diversity in the geographic regions present in the country is one of its strongest assets for tourism.

Thailand forms the centre of the Indochina peninsula, and is home to over 68 million people.
The peninsular feature, just above Malaysia, makes up the majority of the coastal area of the country, since the main body only has a small coastline on the south side, with the rest being land borders with Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar.
Popular tourist activities include gastronomic tourism, visiting cultural and heritage sites (many of which relate to the history and religion of the country – 94% Buddhist), and recreation/relaxation, ecotourism, and active holidays.
The diversity of geography offers many opportunities for hiking, climbing, and other outdoor pursuits. National parks, of which there are many, are great for these kinds of things.
The number of rivers and water features throughout the country make boating, rafting, and especially kayaking, along with other water sports popular.
Of course, you can always count on any nation with coastal regions to have plenty of swimming, fishing, and related activities on tap as well.
