Islands in Thailand

Relax on the beach beside the warm, turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand, or enjoy some of the world's most fantastic scuba adventures among the islands of the Andaman Sea. Thailand is one of the best, most reasonably priced places for a seaside vacation.

There are hundreds of beaches to choose from. From the tropical paradise of a bungalow on Ko Samet off the coast of Rayong province, only a few hours from Bangkok by comfortable air conditioned bus, to the luxurious resort developments on Phuket Island, just a short flight from Bangkok, you can have the best vacation of your life.

More remote venues, such as the lovely and unspoiled Koh Ngai in the Andaman off the coast of Trang, make it possible to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life without spending a fortune.

Most visitors choose to come after the rainy season ends in late October and before the hot season starts in April. But even during the peak of the monsoon season in September it usually only rains for an hour or so in the afternoon, and the rest of the time you can indulge in the water sport of your choice, or just lay in a hammock and chill out.

Islands in the Gulf, like Koh Chang, are great for a family excursion. Backpackers will love the wild parties on Phangan Island off the coast of Surat Thani. For scuba enthusiasts, exotic Koh Tao is not to be missed. Single travelers may prefer the uninhibited nightlife of Pattaya Beach.

Whatever your holiday preference, Thailand's beaches and islands can provide the precise combination of excitement, exotic locales, recreation, entertainment and leisure that you desire.

So, here's an overview of some of the best islands in Thailand, including the best-known spots like Koh Samui, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao and Koh Samet. We've also covered a smattering of the lesser known islands that you probably won't read about in your guidebook, in our opinion these can be some of the best islands in Thailand.
