ISLAND HOPPING in THAILAND: Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, Koh Jum

Reportedly, there are about 1430 islands in Thailand – obviously not all of them inhabited, but sadly, many of them crowded. Charmingly, some of the Thai islands come in clusters and are therefore easily accessible when island hopping.

The most idyllic way of island hopping is done by the traditional longtail boats.

While formerly, most of Thailand’s islands were uninhabited, more and more have been developed for tourism.

It must have been a nice place, albeit today, it is far too crowded.
However, it is the gateway to the paradise of the islets and isles scattered in the Andaman sea.

Ao Nang’s strongest suit is being a gateway to the countless isles scattered in the Andaman Sea.

 

The city of Krabi, however, is not much more than the central hub for the adjacent beaches and islands and doesn’t have much to offer. However, waiting for your ride or flight, you can spend half a day checking out the few unspectacular sights.
