Quiet Thailand Beaches

    We are seriously considering a holiday on Thailand islands towards the end of the year.

    I know it’s a long time ahead but there seems to be so much choice and the area is a closed book to us. So many islands, so many ferries, so many ways of reaching them via Bangkok!

    In the past few years we have enjoyed holidays, in Kerala, Sri Lanka, Zanzibar and the Andaman Islands. We love quiet locations, superb beaches, good snorkelling (preferably from the beach) and although of an age when comfort becomes more important, we avoid the huge impersonal resort centres, preferring smaller, clean and comfortable hotels with private bathroom.

    We enjoy flora and fauna and seeing something of the local life and sometimes doing absolutely nothing on a quiet beach!

    Where could you suggest? Maybe a two or three centre holiday over a period of about 28 days. And I think including a couple of nights in Bangkok would be a must!

    Hey Dande I was in Koh Pha-Ngan last week and I've been avoiding the South-Eastern islands for some time now for obvious reasons but I have to say that we found a great place. Nice accommodation for very reasonable prices with good food and water activities too (snorkelling and kayaking). Here's a few pics:

    I've not been further South yet but I have heard very good things about the beaches and islands in the provinces of Trang, Satun and Pattani - quiet and unsoiled by backpackers.

    We found a gem in southern Thailand (Satun), with absolutely none of the usual tourist stuff !!
    For fauna and flora, beautiful beaches, some interesting history..low noise to NO NOISE.
    No manky dogs and cats or tuk-tuks, trucks (because there isn't ANY)
    Koh Tarutao island(national park), reached from Pak Bara ferry terminal, Fly to Hat Yai (Air Asia) or Satun (Nok Airways)
    Nice...
