Three Cool islands in Thailand

By Stefan Stevenson

1. Koh Lanta - bring your family and stay longer than you expected..

Koh Lanta is a calm, quiet and unbelievably beautiful island with perfect beaches. A lot of people call Koh Lanta the "swede island" because of how many swedes that stay here for long periods of time.

Koh Lanta's own Swedish school makes it easy for families with young childres to stay for long periods of time, without having their kids getting behind in their studies. No matter your budget, at Koh Lanta everyone can find accomodation to suit their needs, from the simplest "beach shack" living to five star resorts.

2. Koh Phangan - if you want to party

At Koh Panghan expect a lot of backpackers, fast tempo and a famous party scene. This is not the place if you want to take it easy and relax with a book, especially if you arrive during the full moon party week that happens every month.

But if you want to party with people from around our globe all night long, this is the place! If you do arrive a other week than the full moon party week however, Koh Phangan is a nice relaxed island with nice beaches and accommodation for every budget. You get here by boat either from Surat Thani or Ko Samui.

3. Koh Jum - experience a true island paradise

Koh Jum is a really quiet and beautifull island north of Koh Lanta. There is no party or nightlife here but if you want to visit a tropical paradise island you should go here.

All the accomodation are simple bamboo bungalows right on the beach and there are only around ten different places to choose from. You get here from Krabi by boat.
