Forget the crowded resorts of Thailand! Here are 5 islands that are well worth a visit. A little less tourist and therefore more enchanting than ever, these little bits of paradise called there “koh”, are waiting for you…
It is perhaps the wildest of the islands of the Gulf of Thailand. Koh Kut, also known as Koh Kood, is off Koh Chang, facing the Cambodian coast. You must know that here, few hotels, but some guesthouses and bungalows to blend in with nature. No department stores that would denature this exceptional site, and especially beautiful white sand beaches with lush jungle as a backdrop…
It is in the Similian Islands archipelago that Koh Tachai is delighting divers from all over the world. It must be said that its seabed is extremely transparent and of rare beauty. During a snorkeling trip, you can see among others large rays, leopard sharks, nurse sharks, turtles and thousands of multicolored tropical fish.
Welcome to the most beautiful archipelago of Thailand. It is about a hundred kilometers from Phuket that the 9 islands covered with tropical vegetation emerge from the turquoise blue waters of the Andaman Sea. The largest is Similian, condensed with pristine sandy beaches and crystal clear sea. In one part of the bay is a strange rock of granite placed in balance, a point of view that the visitors must photograph!
Koh Phi Phi
If this name speaks to you, it is because you already know a little Thailand … Or that you saw the film “The Beach” with the beautiful Leonardo Di Caprio. Despite the presence of hotel complexes, rebuilt after the tsunami in 2004, Ko Phi Phi has kept some mysterious and wild places. We love its pristine beaches surrounded by cliffs plunging into the water so transparent that we can see the fish come tickling our toes.
Cape on the extreme south of Thailand, on an island that will melt! Koh Lipe is still far from the crowds of Koh Samui or Phuket, making it an ideal destination to cut yourself off from the world. Wild and unspoiled, the island is only 4 km², without large infrastructure but small wooden lodges with sea view. Cocktail of fresh fruit in hand, we just have to contemplate the beauty of powdery sandy beaches, and admire a unique sunset feet in the water. We recommend the beaches of Pattaya, Sunrise and Sunset Beach.
