Looking for the best way to travel around the islands in Thailand in 2023? I got you covered with 5 different island hopping itineraries to make the most of your trip to Thailand. In this travel blog you will find itineraries from Phuket, island hopping itineraries around Krabi and around Koh Samui, but also find 1-week Thailand island hopping itineraries as well as 2-week Thailand island hopping itineraries!
Last but not least I have a special itinerary for you... island hopping from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok and see some of the most remote, but also most pristine islands in Thailand: Koh Lipe.
Leave Phuket behind you and explore the surrounding islands. Koh Yao Yai is one of my favorite islands out there and only 30 minutes away from Phuket. Still untouched and a place where island life is the number one feeling. When you decide to go island hopping in Thailand then put this on your list. In a hidden bay in Koh Yao Yai you can find Glow Elixir, a lovely 4* resort in a tranquil bay.
Island hopping Thailand is probably the most popular first big trip for young travelers and I can totally understand why! Traveling to Thailand is hot again after the global pandemic! Some may say the islands are overcrowded and the authentic Thai lifestyle is gone. I am the last one to deny this as Thailand tourism changed a lot over the years. But hey... I am just as much guilty as I have visited Thailand almost 20 times.
Island hopping in Thailand never gets boring and is always something to look forward to. The uncomplicated and laid-back vibe is something hard to explain, but it makes me book a Thailand holiday over and over.
