The East coast of Thailand has always offered plenty for those wanting that iconic beach stay. Delving into the Gulf of Thailand, Hua Hin sits along a long, curving bay. This charming fishing village boasts excellent golf courses and quiet beaches, perfect for families.
Another option close to Cambodia lies Koh Kood, an undiscovered gem of untouched jungle and deserted beaches. Here the family-friendly eco-resort Soneva Kiri brings a new meaning to barefoot luxury.
One name amongst many of the Thai islands which is synonymous with white sands and clear waters is Koh Samui, the archetypal tropical island. Though developed, it hasn’t lost its charm and its prime location means you avoid the monsoon rains here. Koh Samui is a fantastic option for families, first timers, spa lovers all wishing to choose from the very best accommodation. From here take a boat across to Koh Phangan for plenty more stunning, secluded bays with which Thailand has become so associated with.
