Filming Locations in Thailand
From the bustling streets of Bangkok in central Thailand to the lush green forests of northern Thailand, the country has many beautiful filming locations that can make your next film production an unforgettable cinematic experience. Thailand is a great location for filming because of its proximity to other Southeast Asian countries, the diversity of its workforce, and the presence of stunning natural scenery rarely seen in other countries. You could say Thailand is a great all-in-one package when it comes to filming in Asia.
Bangkok, the capital and most populous city, is a vibrant destination for filmmakers seeking a multitude of easily accessible filming locations. From its bustling streets to the majestic Chaopraya River, Bangkok offers numerous inspiring spots that elevate the production value of any film. Additionally, the city boasts iconic locations such as the famous floating market, temples, and Chinatown. Blockbuster-tier film productions like “The Hangover Part II,” “Only God Forgives,” and “Mechanic: Resurrection” have all been shot in Bangkok, further highlighting its appeal to filmmakers.
Not far from Bangkok, to the north, lies Ayutthaya—a city brimming with historically important filming locations that can transform your next film production into an unforgettable cinematic experience. From majestic temples to the captivating ruins of the ancient city, Ayutthaya offers a wealth of options for your film, particularly within the historical or adventure genres.
In the far northern parts of Thailand, nestled amidst mountains and stunning landscapes, lies Chiang Mai—a haven for any film production seeking the natural beauty of Thailand. With its abundant filming locations, Chiang Mai offers a diverse array of settings suitable for various genres. Furthermore, the city enjoys consistently pleasant and sunny weather, making it a captivating visual spectacle on the silver screen.
With its captivating beaches and magnificent landscapes, Phuket is undeniably one of Thailand’s most beautiful cities. It offers an idyllic setting for film productions in search of a vacation-themed location for their next project. Phuket holds a notable place in the film industry, having hosted blockbuster-tier film productions like “The Beach” and “The Impossible,” which portrayed the devastating 2004 tsunami in Thailand.
For an authentic and historically rich depiction of Thailand, Kanchanaburi is the ideal destination for that essence.
