BK Magazine's new guide, Thailand Hot Spots 2017-2018, figures you've already heard of Wat Pho, Patong Beach and Chiang Mai night market.

Instead of the regular guidebook stuff, we round up the best of what's new from across Thailand to clue in our well-traveled friends with the places and trends getting locals excited: the restaurants doing amazing things with regional produce in Bangkok, the booming designer boutique scene in Chiang Mai, the luxury hideaways opening on Koh Samui, and the regeneration of Phuket's charming old shop-houses.

So whether you're in Bangkok and planning that next beach getaway, or in Singapore dreaming of a weekend city break, use Thailand Hot Spots to help plan a trip that'll take you away from the tourist spots. 

The 42-page guide is available as an insert in the Sep 29 issue of BK Magazine, which you can pick up at over 400 venues across Bangkok. Or you can download your own free PDF version at goo.gl/K9s9DT.
