Leave Phuket behind you and explore the surrounding islands. Koh Yao Yai is one of my favorite islands out there. Still untouched and a place where island life is the number one feeling. Glow Elixir is a lovely 4* resort in a tranquil bay.
Island hopping Thailand is probably the most popular first big trip for young travellers and I can totally understand why an island hopping Thailand adventure is so extremely popular with people from all over the world, but to be honest I never wanted to write about the places to visit in Thailand cause there are already numerous articles out there about what to see in Thailand or the top 10 places in Thailand.
