How to move entire site with long URLs to Wordpress?

    Hi,

    I want to move an old static site with .PHP pages into Wordpress entirely.
    The site has established and I don't want to use redirection. I want to preserve the old URLs.

    Long URLs look something like this:
    http://www.mysite.com/travelguides/thailand/bangkok-things-to-do.php

    So, basically there are no more than 2-3 levels of folders and the pages are 2-3 levels down.

    Can I move the site by preserving the URLs? Can this be done simply with 'permalinks' in Wordpress by simply creating new posts and giving them the old URLs?

    E.g. create a new "Bangkok Things to Do" post and save its URL as:
    http://www.mysite.com/travelguides/thailand/bangkok-things-to-do.php
    SEMrush
    Or... "bangkok-things-to-do.php" under the folders "travelguides/thailand"?

    Many thanks to whoever helps!
