First time in Thailand? Welcome to paradise. This itinerary offers an easy introduction to the delights of island-hopping in southern Thailand. Remember that flying directly to the islands, either internationally or via Bangkok, will save a couple of days of travelling. Head directly to Phuket and pick a beach where you can recover from jet lag for a day or two before starting your journey along one of the finest stretches of coastline in the world.
It's a terrible dilemma: Thailand has too many beaches to choose from. Choices can be daunting even for those visiting a second time, and development is so rapid that where you went five years ago may now be completely different. Here, we break it down for you so you can find your dream beach. What you can do besides lounging on the beach is the deciding factor for many visitors when choosing a beach. Railay is the best-known place to climb in southern Thailand; it's ideal for both beginners and experienced climbers, and a fun scene. Ko Phi-Phi has some great climbing options alongside its lively party scene — although the climbing operators are on Railay — as well as an abundance of water and land activities. There are less busy and more off-the-beaten-path climbing options around the appealing mainland town of Krabi.
