Travel Tips & Advice for Island Hideaways

Island Hideaways Activities

It’s all about the water (almost)! Surrounded by clear blue seas abundant with tropical marine life, it comes as no surprise that snorkelling and scuba diving are two of the most popular activities when staying on Thailand’s islands. On solid land, scale the limestone cliffs or jump off one, hike to the top Phi Phi’s viewpoint for iconic images or head to Koh Phangan’s infamous full moon parties – complete with endless drinks and fire shows.

Island Hideaways Food & Drink

As with most places in Thailand, markets are the best place to try local street food. The waters around Phi Phi, Koh Lanta and Koh Phangan are teeming with lobster, prawn and crab resulting in some of the freshest seafood dishes you’ve ever tasted. Start mornings eating fresh coconuts, set your tastebuds alight with spicy southern curries before quenching the inevitable thirst with local Thai beers.

Island Hideaways Attractions

With stunning scenery, white sand beaches and crystal clear waters, Thailand’s southern islands are an attraction in themselves. See depictions of longtail boats carved into rock at the Viking Caves and swim through cliffs to the Emerald Cave - you'll be rewarded with a small lagoon and beach. Relax with a herbal sauna at the Buddhist temple Wat Pho in Koh Phangan and see waterfalls in Thansadej National Park.
