Phuket
The wide, beautiful beaches, white sands and emerald waters make Phuket the “Pearl” of the Andaman Sea. The zig-zagging west coast is dotted with three major beaches, Patong, Karon and Hat Kata, the main destinations for most tourists. The island is characterized by colorful entertainment experiences and rich nightlife. If partying isn’t quite your thing, you might choose to take a visit to Kamala Beach, famous for its cleanliness, or even Hat Surin for its privacy. An established tourist island, facilities and resorts are already quite developed, making this coastal village a delight to visitors both young and old.

Racha Yai Island
4.6/5
4,102 Reviews
Island/Peninsula
“Racha” means “emperor” in the local language. Originally an exclusive holiday island of the Thai royal family, it was later opened to the public. There are 5 small beaches on Racha Yai Island: Ter Bay and Lha Bay to the east, Kon Kare Bay to the southeast, Patok Bay to the west and Siam Bay to the north. This is a good place for snorkeling. The water temperature is just right and the waves are relatively small. The beach line is quite long. The fish seen in different snorkeling places on the island are different too. Compared to the boisterousness of Phuket, the environment here is exceptionally quiet.

For most people, New Years evokes memories of large celebrations. Perhaps it’s watching the ball drop in New York’s Times Square, perhaps it’s the fireworks from Sydney Harbour Bridge. In Thailand and other places throughout Southeast Asia, New Years is an excuse to have a massive water fight. Thailand’s traditional New Years festival, known as Songkran, is observed every year from April 13-15. To understand Songkran is to gain an appreciation of Thailand and Thai culture. In this travelogue, we explore the traditions around Songkran and delve into some recommendations for great places to participate in the festivities. Make sure you’ve got a change of clothes, because we’re going to get wet.
