Normally in Asia prices double when moving from the mainland to an island. The small Perhentian Island or Pulau Perhentian Kecil is not a exeption, but who wants to relax at the beaches of this nice island don’t has to necessarily pay too much. Here I have some tips how to cut off some expenses while staying on the island.
Koh Phangan is a island in the middle between Koh Samui and Koh Tao in the Gulf of Thailand. I came here mainly for one reason: Daily diving trips to Sail Rock – the most beautiful diving spot in the Gulf of Thailand!
But besides diving Koh Phangnan invites to relax at the sandy beaches in the south, explore the small bays along the west coast side or visit one of the plenty waterfalls inland.
Koh Tao: A small island in front of the east coast of southern Thailand, a diving paradise or only destroyed reefs, beautiful beaches or run over by tourists. Anyone you ask will give you a different answer what Koh Tao is and I met alot of travellers who got stuck on Koh Tao years ago but also many who completely skiped the island.
So what is my impression of the island after 8 nights on Koh Tao?
