Twenty-five finalists for the ‘Unseen New Chapters’ campaign have been revealed by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) recently. These travel destinations were hand-selected by Thai tourists as emerging attractions offering distinctive travel experiences out of five different regions.

TAT opened voting for the ‘Unseen New Chapters’ campaign from 22 May-18 June 2023, inviting Thai people to participate in the selection of new attractions around the country via the websites: and The 25 finalist attractions were the results of over 547,710 votes received, and more than 1,089,193 visits to the sites.

Voters were able to choose from a total field of 77 tourist attractions – one from each province in Thailand, these having been selected by committees and experts from government agencies and the private sector, including the 45 TAT offices nationwide and tourism entrepreneurs in each province.

To qualify, an attraction needed to meet certain criteria; this included having an interesting story, not yet being widely known by tourists, having a good tourism management system in place, and being easily accessible.

Of the 25 finalist attractions in the Unseen New Chapters campaign, 20 were chosen based on the public’s voting and five by an expert committee.

Here is the full list of the 25 finalist attractions in the New Unseen Chapters campaign.
