Important to Consider in Koh Samui & Phuket

Choosing Islands

Choosing which islands to visit in Thailand depends on your preferences. For vibrant nightlife and varied activities, Phuket is ideal. Koh Samui offers luxury resorts and a balanced mix of culture and relaxation. Those seeking diving experiences might lean towards Koh Tao, while Koh Phangan is famed for its Full Moon parties. Koh Lanta and Koh Chang offer quieter escapes. Research each island's offerings, align them with your interests, and consider travel logistics to make an informed choice. We keep being drawn back to both Koh Samui and Phuket, so have highlighted our favorite itinerary to visit both in one trip. There are many flights a day from both islands to Bangkok, so starting your trip with a few nights in the the Land of Smiles' "City of Angels" is a must.
