Island hopping Thailand is probably one of the most popular holiday packages in Asia for young people. Everyone once heard stories about the Full Moon party, crazy nights in Koh Phi Phi or the early mornings in Phuket, but it is not only about partying, there are way more things to do in Thailand than just getting drunk.
Of course scuba diving will always be the main tourist drag simply because it is one of the cheapest places in the world to make your first steps in breathing underwater. But there are more things to do in Koh Tao besides scuba diving! Since I have spent so much time in this little paradise I should reveal the list of the coolest Koh Tao things to do according to ‘locals’.
As you know I have traveled extensively around the world the last years and I am all about adventures and islandlife. Although I ended up in Bali several times the last years I only made it to Lombok and the Gili Islands and totally overlooked the magical Nusa Penida just a 45-minute boat ride from Bali. This summer though I finally found my way to this magical place.
After a little research you know which are the best islands to visit in Thailand and the most appealing to you but now you are stuck making an island hopping Thailand itinerary. I admit it is not easy to decide how long to stay on each island, but we all want a rough schedule, right?
Ever since I lived in the Caribbean in 2006 I have had a crush on islands. There is simply a different vibe and people seem to be happier than elsewhere. People don’t take life so serious and live a day-to-day lifestyle rather than worrying what the future will bring them. Over the years I have learned that islandlife is totally my thing. Running around on flipflops wearing swimmers feels so uncomplicated and that is how life should be.
