Discover four amazing destinations to rest in Thailand, from obvious to quieter places
Phuket also named “Pearl from the South” is a must-do. You will have the choice between sand and rocks. Phuket is the biggest island in the country, so you should be able to find a little piece of sand despite the huge number of tourists there. Have a walk in the tropical forest and cacao or pineapple fields or other areas. If you need a place full of life, walk in the city streets and enjoy the surprising contrast between Buddhist temples and modern restaurants or massage parlours. And of course, Phuket is also famous for its vivacious nightlife.
You’ll have a rest later!
Koh Samui, a Thai piece of paradise
Koh Samui is a touristic island. However, it deserves its worldwide success.
