Quick island overview

Thailand´s islands (thai=koh) belong to the most beautiful islands worldwide, with nice and clean sandy beaches, coconut palm trees and crystal clear waters. Temperatures are between 28 and 35 degrees Celsius with a soft cooling breeze from the sea. Especially at night, life takes often place on the beaches with seafood and thaifood dinners, feet in the sand and music with fireshows in front of the sea. It´s a romantic and tropical experience, you´ll not forget.

Most flights to Thailand arrive at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi airport oder Don Mueang airport. Traveling from Bangkok to the islands in the south and in the east can be done easily by flight or bus. Most local flights with low cost airlines (Airasia, Nokair, LionairThai) start from Don Mueang airport to Krabi, Hat Yai, Suratthani, Trang or Phuket. Bangkokair flies from Suvarnabhumi to Samui, Phuket or Trat. Flight tickets can be bought online.

Most of the islands are connected by speed boats, express boats or catamarans. Schedule is limited during the rainy season from May to October/November. Boat tickets can be bought at any pier or jetty.

Airasia and Nokair offer combi tickets for flight, bus and boat, e.g. to Koh Lipe or Koh Lanta or Koh Phangan.
