Thailand has hundreds and thousands of islands that were considered the best in Southeast Asia. With abundant resources and healthy environment, islands in Thailand are just so attractive to tourists especially the Westerners. It is almost impossible to tell which island, in fact, is the best. People have different views and preferences which will lead to a variety of ideas and opinions.
In fact, the local Thais themselves could not tell either because all islands have their own beauty. There are vast differences between Thailand’s famous tropical islands are attractions to tourists and international visitors. It is indeed difficult to tell which island is better than another. Each island has its own culture and style that supports different needs and wants of tourists and travelers.
Main islands in Thailand include: Phuket, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, Jum, Koh Mak, Koh Chang, Koh Phayam, Koh Samui, Pha Ngun, Koh Tao, Samet, and Koh Kood. With their own originality and beauty, tourists from all over the world plan trips without a need to hesitate and reconsider.
Parties in Islands
Thailand’s islands are known for famous parties such as the full moon party that occurs every month. As a tradition, local islanders prepare traditional food, beer, and cocktails to welcome tourists and begin the wild party along with the largest full moon as a night’s background. Loud dance music and retro songs are international and are well chosen for tourists and visitors to dance their hearts out. When it comes to full moon parties, Koh Samui and Pha Ngun will rank top on the list. Famous for its full moon parties and hard-to-beat night clubs in Chaweng, Samui is considered as ‘the island of beats‘.
The islands in Thailand are well-trained, perhaps, to take good care of kids and young ones. With mini-golf, go-karts, water sports, and many other wild activities kids and teens can enjoy their time at Koh Samui, Pha Ngan, Phuket, Koh Chang, and Koh Tao without a bore. If the little young ones prefer playing with sand buckets and animal-shaped blocks, Koh Lanta will definitely be the place. Its white, soft sand and cool sea water will wash away your child’s tears. Hotels and accommodations are well-prepared in all islands; however, some islands are closer to nature and therefore have lesser grand hotels than the others. Koh Lanta and Koh Chang, perhaps, have one of the most expensive hotels among the other islands. Looking for restaurants and some food to minimize your hunger? All islands are equipped with traditional food and international dishes. Koh Kut though, particularly attracts numbers of tourists here with its Thai traditional food and desserts along with its own close-nature atmosphere and environment.
Beaches and Activities
Koh Phi Phi is the best island in terms of beaches and sea water. No offense, Phi Phi is one of the world’s clearest beaches where numbers of movies filmed their scenes. In Koh Phi Phi, tourists can scuba dive, swim, kayak, and water ski. With courage and confidence, tourists can enjoy the bungee jumping as well.
