Meet the magnificent beauty of Phi Phi islands and other lesser known islands

The Phi Phi islands are said to be the most beautiful to visit in Thailand. The most talked about island among the Phi Phi archipelago is the Koh Phi Phi Leh. With its clear blue water, white sandy beach and vibrant tropical greenery, it is not hard to see the appeal of Koh Phi Phi Leh. Another such popular island is the Koh Phai or, as it is commonly known as, Bamboo Island. Covered in more lush tropical vegetation like Bamboo trees and surrounded by white sand – it is a place of immense beauty. There are coral reefs just a little further away from the islands and one can go snorkeling in the crystal clear water. Along with the natural beauty, Phi Phi islands also has great luxury hotels, beach resorts, restaurants and bars which will give you something to do along while admiring the astonishing view.

However, the Phi Phi islands are not the only place to be stunned in Thailand, they are only the most famous. There are tons of other islands that are less touristic, but just as stunning as the Phi Phi Islands. If you want to get away from the hub of the Phi Phi islands and spend some quality time with someone, even all by yourself on a deserted beach, Koh Bulon Lae is the place to be. You can be sure to find peace and solitude amidst the serene setting. The best island for unique landscapes unlike any other is Koh Phra Thong. The beach lined with palm trees, untouched by humans will easily make one compare it to some other exotic land like Africa. Uncommon birds and animals may also be spotted there due to minimal human interference. Welcome in Paradise!

Bamboo Island

 If you are feeling particularly outdoorsy – Ko Adang is the best island for camping. It is one of the very few unspoiled islands in Thailand and has not yet been discovered by the mass tourism. It is covered in rainforest, has waterfalls and some sandy beaches. You can camp out on the beach or choose a basic bungalow. You can also go explore the rainforest if you are more adventurous. It also has great snorkeling spots so even though it is fairly secluded, there are a lot of activities you can do. For more natural beauty, you can visit Koh Lao Liang. Colorful reefs with towering limestone cliffs and white sandy beaches make up the island. Not many visitors are allowed each day and this helps to keep the natural beauty of the island.

And if you want both comfort, peace and quiet away from the big touristy spots, Koh Yao Noi is ideal for you. It is a picturesque island with pristine beaches, incredible forests and amazing coastline. Visitors can snorkel, kayak and swim in the beautiful water. However, it is not completely devoid of human interference. Boutique resorts, shop and restaurants are easy to come by in Koh Yao Noi. The combination of the calming nature and comforting development makes this a great destination for visiting and it is highly recommended. Choose your pick and enjoy the wonderful islands.

You are welcome! Happy Traveling!

I am Marie-Noëlle Anaëlla, a Globetrotter and Travel Writer from the Netherlands, currently residing in Paris. I describe myself as a Third Culture Kid (TCK) and see the world as my home, having been born in the African country of Gabon and spending my early years in several diverse countries around the world. Living in places like Cameroon, Japan, China, India, Ireland, the United States and much more, has meant that it has become difficult for me to adequately describe where I am from to the people I meet. As a result, I am now simply calling myself a citizen of the world, coming from here, coming from there and coming from everywhere. Having caught the travel bug at a very young age, I have since made it my life and have now either lived in or visited more than 140 countries across 7 continents. Not traveling, for me, would be like staring at empty pages in a book, too afraid to open myself up to the world and see its beauty. This traveling life has now seen me take up a career in travel writing about my experiences and why it is so important. I spend much of my time encouraging others to travel, inspiring them to seek greatness and turn negative experiences into something positive. When I am not busy traveling around the world or writing about it, I practice Tai-Chi and meditation, treat my body with the utmost respect and loves a cup of English tea. What else do you want to know? :) Happy Traveling!
