The Andaman Sea Route
Whether you’re staying at a beach resort or a city hotel Bangkok has on offer – say, for example, the Avani Atrium Bangkok – the Andaman Sea route is where you should start your island-hopping adventures. Just be sure you don’t attempt this during the monsoon season as rough seas keep ferries from travelling in between the islands.
The Sights of Phuket
Phuket is one of the most popular destinations in Thailand – and with good reason too! The main island and the surrounding archipelago are full of spectacular natural sights. This includes pristine beachfront and biodiverse national parks.
The Similan Islands
For those that are keen on scuba diving and snorkelling, the Similan Islands are the perfect location for you. The waters the surround the islands offer some of the best diving spots in Thailand. Beneath the waves, you can come face-to-face with oceanic giants like manta rays and giant moray eels.
The Beauty of Koh Yao Yai
Koh Yao Yai is located in-between the two major islands of Krabi and Phuket. If you’re looking to spend some quality time alone, away from the crowds, Koh Yao Yai’s deserted beaches will be just perfect for you.
