Best Tourist Islands for a Wonderful Holiday in Thailand

Thailand is perhaps the only country in South East Asia, which was never colonized even once. Now that is where the name of the nation derives from – Thai means Free according to the Thai language. The capital city of Bangkok is quite famous for its wonderful shopping markets, special performance shows the WAT temples and the Chao Phraya River Cruise. But the islands of the country have got their own distinctive charm and that is why they attract solo travelers, adventure enthusiasts, groups of friends, family, and even honeymooners. Let us take a look at some of the best islands that you can send your clients to on their next trip to Thailand.


Phuket is the biggest island in Thailand not only area-wise but also entertainment-wise. The Phuket Fantasea show is one of the biggest theatrical shows involving elephants in the 60-acre cultural theme park. Be it a day trip to the serene Phi Phi Island or an excursion to the famous James Bond Island, Phuket works as the stunning base. Phuket Weekend Market is one great haven for shopping aficionados. The Great Buddha of Phuket sits on top of a hill and overlooks the sea, making it the perfect place to take great photos and for those who wish to relax. 


Krabi is a magical land where the beaches look heavenly and the sand looks whimsical. For beach fans and honeymooners, the best part is that Phuket can be reached from Krabi by a ferry ride in just about 2 hours and 15 minutes. The panoramic hilltop Tiger Cave Temple is a wonderful site with outstanding views. The Khao Khanap Nam is the name given to a set of 2 Limestone Mountains ranging about 100 feet high with the Krabi River flowing between them making it the world-famous icon of Krabi Island itself! Of all the beaches in Krabi, Ao Nang beach is the most scenic and worthy of taking some epic memorable snapshots. 

Ko Pha Ngan

This wondrous island is widely popular for the full moon parties hosted here every single month! On every full moon night, the party lasts for the entire night at the Haad Rin peninsula of Ko Pha Ngan. For those who love staying in beach bungalows, the best place to celebrate the full moon party is on Sunrise Beach. For those clients who prefer a calm environment and still love to enjoy beautiful full moon nights, then the beaches of Hat Khuat and Hat Thian are the best suited, as their white sandy beaches are a true reflection of tranquility. 

Koh Samui

Samui (nickname) is the 2nd largest island of Thailand and it is located at a spectacular location – the Gulf of Thailand. For any traveler who likes the sights of beaches decorated by palm trees, coconut groves, and large expanses of rainforests spread across green mountain ranges, Koh Samui is the best-suggested destination. Another great landmark attraction of Samui other than the wonderful landscapes is Wat Phra Yai. This temple, also known as the Big Buddha of Koh Samui, can be seen while flying to Samui since its located just about 3 km from the airport. The 39 feet tall Buddha is said to have been gilded with gold and because such a tall statue is located on top of a hillock, this can be seen from many places across this magnificent island.
