It borders Laos to the north and east, and Cambodia to the south. It is an area rich in history and culture, and offers many great locations, including great examples of ancient Khmer architecture at Phanom Rung and Phimai’.

You are probably thinking, “Ugh, excuse me, did you say coffee?”Yes, coffee. The first thing most people have when the awake in the morning, before heading to the set and on set. The one “food” item that catering services has available all day long in the canteen during a shoot. But what does coffee have to do with Filming in Thailand? Glad you asked that question. Ever since Angel & Bear Productions filmed and released the Thai/USA production of Bitter/Sweet (2010), a character-driven romantic comedy set in a Thai coffee plantation (but actually filmed in Krabi, Chonburi and BAngkok), interest has been building on filming documentaries, commercials and features of Thailand’s indigenous people owned coffee plantations.
