Photo of the Day – Le Meridien Koh Samui, Thailand

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!

    Hi Jenny. this is probably too late to be useful, but did you go to the Perhentian Islands yet? They’re my favorite islands. Not Thailand but right by the Thai border on the east coast of Malaysia.

    Or Lipe would be a good choice if the season you’re going is better for that side.

      No, I haven’t been to either. I’ll be back in Thailand in February so I’m still looking at island options. I’ve looked at Lipe (which looks beautiful) but I haven’t even heard of the Perhentian Islands. I’ll check them out, thanks for the suggestion!
