Nothing compares to the unspoiled beauty of Phuket Thailand. Its beaches are considered as among the best in the world.

Phi Phi islands is a hidden paradise in Thailand where the movie “The Beach” was filmed. It’s surely a place where you can relax and have fun with family, friends or a loved one.
The Ko Tarutao National Marine Park on the other hand is composed of several inhabited islands, which are considered as the best and least spoilt in Thailand. The Ko Mook island is not yet commercially developed but it is certainly great for the budget-conscious and nature lovers.
When Is The Best Time To Visit?
If you’re used to snowing and the cold weather, you’d probably love the heat during the months of March, April and May. If your main purpose is to go scuba diving, you can visit during this hot season. If you want to go sightseeing, it is advisable to go there between the months of December and March. The weather is cool and relatively the best during these months. If you are going to the west coast of the country, don’t go there between May and October as it frequently rains there during these months.
