Thailand East Coast

The East Coast islands have a more rugged beauty, and are dominated in parts by small fishing villages and rubber plantations. Koh Samui is the original Thai Island paradise, and to some extent, despite falling victim to its own success, it still is.
Even with its over-development, there are worthwhile areas for exploration such as little fishing villages and hidden coves. It does have its charms, and  some of the best properties in the country - making Samui still a good option.

Koh Samed, closer to Bangkok, is a small, pretty island that you can walk around in an hour or so. Iis famed for its white powdery beaches, but, as with most Thai resorts, Koh Samed is slowly having more development. Koh Kood, however, close to the Cambodian border, is still very underdeveloped - it is covered with wild jungle and deserted beaches, and is a definite undiscovered gem and ideal for a Thailand Honeymoon. The east coast has good weather all year round, with the rainfall at its lowest in January and February.
