As my longtime readers may know, Thailand is the only country I have visited on all 7 Round the World trips. Last year, it was the beautiful island of Koh Samui and a stay at the stunning W Koh Samui and Le Merdien Koh Samui Resort & Spa. On other trips I’ve visited Chiang Mai, Phuket, Koh Phi Phi, Khao Lak, Krabi and Phang Nga. Today, plans are in full swing for Round the World #8 but I’m struggling with a new Thai beachy destination and looking for ideas. Without a doubt I’ll be making a stop in Bangkok to visit the shiny new W Bangkok hotel (opening in December)…but where to after that? Maybe Koh Lipe or Koh Lanta? I’m open to suggestions fellow globetrotters, so if you’ve got a favorite beach in Thailand, please share!
