Hi Mathavan, Really nice to hear that your friend is going to Thailand, But you want to know the special place in it. Really, I am confused that which place will suggest you because Thailand is a special place for own self, all places in this is special, but among them, I suggest you 10 best places that Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Ayutthaya, Kanchanaburi, Chon Buri, Ratchaburi, Krabi, Sukhothai, Phang nga.
