The 3 nicest islands in Thailand


There are hundreds of islands in Thailand and most have been specially developed for tourism. As a result, many islands are crammed with hotels, airports, restaurants and shops. You have to search better and better if you want an island with peace and an authentic atmosphere. I love to end my journey after a hustle and bustle in some parts of Thailand on a quiet and beautiful island where preferably there are few stimuli and where life is very relaxed. Since I have been in Thailand very often and I have visited a different island on every trip, I have seen many islands. What are the nicest islands in Thailand?

I like to share with you the 3 nicest islands in Thailand!
