Thailand is blessed with miles of stunning coastline and hundreds of offshore islands. They are located between Bangkok and the border with Cambodia and in the southern parts of Thailand. Close to Bangkok is Koh Samet and in the south you’ll find Koh Samui and Koh Phangan. The last one is famous and notorious for the monthly full moon party. Although technically not an island Phuket is also considered as one of the islands. Koh Tao is a real scuba divers paradise.
