The first couple of times I went to Thailand over ten years ago, you couldn’t go wrong when you picked an island - they were all very undiscovered and backpackery in the best possible way. Very few people yet still awesome affordable accommodation, street food, nail and massage places (!) and of course, the main draw, stunning scenery!
When I went back recently, I was horrified by how overcrowded some of my favourite spots were, especially Maya Bay (the beach from the film the Beach) and the nearby island of Phi Phi.
So I set about looking for an alternative, but at the time we were only going for a week so it needed to be easy to get to...
THIS IS IT! I have no idea why it’s not very busy (and we went at peak Easter time) - it’s stunning, and only a 30 min boat from either Phuket or Krabi pier! ☺️🎉🙏🏼
