IF you are not fond of full moon party, and the Bangkok traffic jams were right for your patience, if you look closely, you can still find a few islands in Thailand that remain relatively untouched by tourists.

1. Ko PhayamKoh-Phayam
It is good to discover Ko Phayam: there joined hikers and families alone on this beautiful island. It looks like the 70: Some resorts do not even have electricity, and fuel the weak bulbs bungalows with DIY solar panels.

Expect pristine beaches, pleasant walks through the jungle, bungalows on the beach very basic. A night bus from Bangkok to Ranong is the best way to get to the ferry.

2. Ko Surin
The Surin archipelago is home to some of the best dive sites in Thailand and snorkeling, and scuba diving.

There are two main islands, Ko Surin Nua and Ko Surin Tai. Both are beautiful. The islands are part of a national park, and a few tents and bungalows are the only lodging options. The nearest airport is Phuket and the islands are accessible by ferry from Khao Lak.

3. Ko AdangKo Adang

4. Ko Bulon Lae
If you want to get away from civilization, then this is the island for you. Imagine the air full of butterflies and bats, huge monitor lizards crossing your path.

Eat fish every day in ultra simple restaurants and sleeping in a bungalow on the beach that’s all. It is a small island, and it takes only 40 minutes to go around. The island is close to Ko Lipe, a once beautiful island and now ravaged by tourism.

 

5. Ko Chang Noi
Not to be confused with the Ko Chang everyone knows, southeast of Bangkok.

Ko Chang Noi (the small Ko Chang) is located off the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea. It is a very relaxed and quiet place: the opposite of the other Ko Chang. No Seven Eleven and no ATM. It is best to get a night bus from Bangkok to Ranong.

6. Ko Kho Khao . hotel Koh Kho Khao
This is a large island with long golden beaches, mangroves and grassy sand banks. You can ride on elephants, playing in the surf and rent bikes, but otherwise it’s mostly for the beach. Families are more common than backpackers with dreadlocks. The nearest airport is Phuket. If you need a Limousine service during the travel, search for astepabovelimo.com online. You’ll learn about their rates and know more about what is limo service.

7. Bamboo Island
If you find yourself on Phi Phi Don Island, then you need to see Bamboo Island by taking a long tail boat. The best part is that there is nothing to do ….. There is nowhere to spend the night: it’s just a few hours break to enjoy the white sand beach dramatic and clear water.
8. Ko KoodKo Kood
Ko Kood, (often spelled Ko Kut in the past) remained long been a well-kept secret: the island appears for the first time in the 11th edition of the Lonely Planet published in 2006 and barely occupies twenty lines, indicating only three resorts.

The best way to get there is by bus from Bangkok to Laem Sok Pier in Trat province. Then it takes at least an hour high speed boat to reach one of the many beautiful beaches of the island or explore the jungle in search of waterfalls.
9. Ko Lanta  , hotel Ko Lanta
What comes to Ko Lanta in an article on secret islands? In fact Ko Lanta is very large and still has a lot of great beaches in very good condition, and small beaches to discover. There is also an interior mountainous land with lush jungle. The nearest airport is Krabi.

10. Ko Tarutao
Ko Tarutao part of the National Park of the same name (as Ko Adang). You can only rent a bicycle to explore the deserted island, and watch monkeys and abundant birds. Very relaxing and so much better than Ko Lipe, which has grown too quickly and was very spoiled by tourism. The nearest airports are Krabi and Phuket.
