Discover a collection of picture-perfect islands in Thailand

Like many travellers, I first fell for Thailand on a gap year. Backpacking between Phuket, Koh Samui and Koh Phi-Phi, I was bewitched by the postcard-perfect beaches (we still sent postcards back then), delicious, fiery cuisine and friendly, laid-back vibes. Nostalgic memories have inspired my wife and me to return to the ‘Land of Smiles’ for another island-hopping adventure.

This time, however, we’ll be more like flashpackers than backpackers – the $5-a-night bamboo huts that served us well back then no longer cut it, instead little luxuries like air-conditioned rooms, heated water and Wi-Fi are a must. We also want to discover new places (Thailand boasts more than 1,400 islands), so we plot a course that takes in a bunch of relatively ‘hidden’ islands off the country’s breathtaking Andaman coast.
