The Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea are home to a tropical world of aquamarine oceans and shock-white beaches. Here, on the idyllic Thai islands, the swaying of the palm trees will hypnotize you; it’s impossible not to relax on these laid-back, world-famous beaches. And Thailand island holidays offer relaxation in different tones: if you need peace and quiet, head to Koh Jum. If you want heady nightlife, you’ll want Koh Phangnan. To be surrounded by untouched nature, opt for Koh Kood, and for family fun, head to Koh Samui. No matter what you’re looking for in your Thailand island escape, we’ll help you plan the holiday of your dreams.

On Thailand’s many islands, the sites to see are just as amazing underwater as on land. The Thai islands boast some of the best snorkeling and scuba spots in the world.

Tropical Climate

If you’re craving warm weather and sun, you can’t go wrong with a stay on a Thai island. The tropical climates found in both the Gulf and the Andaman ensure temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius year-round—just mind the monsoon season.

Thailand’s islands are famed for their variety of entertainment as well as the purity of their waters. If you prefer an island with more or less nightlife, be sure to let our Travel Specialists know.

Island Culture

The communities who call these islands home are as varied and colorful as any you’ll find on the mainland. Discover island cultures ranging from the merchant heritage of Phuket to the quiet fishing villages of Koh Kood.
