If the last few recommendations haven’t convinced you to pack up and head to Thailand yet, then it will be Thai island hopping that will be certain to reel in any traveler in doubt.
Many of the Thai islands depict the generic perception of what paradise looks like, with their golden sandy beaches lined with palm trees and their idyllic, calm crystal waters, spread around the looming and mysterious limestone cliffs.
First made famous by Ko Phi Phi from Danny Boyle’s 2000 film The Beach, the popularity of the Thai islands now spreads throughout hundreds of beautiful different islands. Ko Pha Ngan hosts the notorious full moon party where young tourists from all over the world come to party, usually with painted bodies and faces before spending the next day recovering in the forgiving ocean.
For more idyllic, quiet spots of paradise, head to Ko Tao (some of Thailand’s best diving spots), Ko Samui, Ko Lanta and Krabi (mainland Thailand).
