So you have decided to take a beach holiday and Thailand is your chosen destination. It is well known that Thailand is one of the best beach destinations in the world. However, there are a number of locations to choose from and we give below some of the Thai beach destinations.
Koh Phangan is the wild one. Several thousand revellers cram its beaches each month for the island’s own festival – The Full Moon Party. The Full Moon Party is a mix lights, glow-in-the-dark body paint, infectious beats and the light of the full moon..
However, Koh Phangan is not just for party-seekers. You can head to the more remote Thong Pan Noi and find grand resorts, such as Buri Rasa, situated right on the beach and luscious green jungle. Here you can take a spa treatment, relax and enjoy the pristine blue waters away from the hubbub of the Koh Phangan strip.
Phuket is another location of contrasts. It is probably still Thailand’s most famous beach location – clearly seen in the throngs that pack its party town: Patong. A Mecca of bars, clubs and all things vice, it’s great for travellers looking for a good time but may not be for everyone.
But for any discerning traveller book at Phuket hotel in the north of the island and you will be within the natural splendour of Sirinat National Park and Khao Phra Thaew reserve with access to beautifully quiert beaches. From here you can explore the island’s cultural gems with an introduction to Phuket tour.
Railay is the thrill-seekers heaven set within a luxurious paradise. First off, it’s a veritable magnet for rock climbers who scramble up the limestone cliffs that rim its paradisiacal beaches. It’s actually a great place to take up the sport: book onto a Half Day Rock Climing Adventure that caters to all experience levels. Alternatively, you can go white water rafting or sea Kayaking to explore the sea caves. For rest and relaxation book a sunset cruise with dinner.
Koh Tao is a great place for a relaxing break. Romantic walks in the lush greenery and dips in the turquoise ocean are the order of the day – along with spa treatments and good food. Book yourself a luxurious Koh Tao hotel on the beach and make the most of it. You can also enjoy scuba diving.
Koh Samui is timeless. It’s been on the Thailand beach holiday scene pretty much since the beginning, yet it’s somehow managed to maintain its sheen. While other locations may have become somewhat grittier, Koh Samui is just a cut above. If you visit Thailand for the culinary delights this is probably the best location for food. Join an Evening Street Food Walking Tour or lean how to cook yourself with a Guided Cooking Class.
If it is peace and quiet you are looking for with blue sea and excellent white sand beaches, away from the bar strips and jet skis then a Koh Lanta holiday is for you. You can discover the island by motorbike and sample local delicacies at the street food stalls and also go scuba diving.
