Thai beaches are the main reason why many people come here. Though most of them have white sand, tranquil and warm sea water, there are also lots of options to select from. And it is rather difficult task to decide which one is the best for you. The north end of Chaweng Beach on Samui is one of most popular and favorite destinations, but the island is perhaps one of the most costly places in Thailand, with very little sightseeing and activities out of the beach.
Phuket is the most developed beach destination in the country. Therefore there are numerous accommodation options of all price levels, as well as rather large amount of attractions to see and enjoy once you go out of the beach. But if you want to escape the crowds, Phuket is not the place where you can do it, as that high development is only due to abundance of tourists they serve.
And if you plan you private getaway you may set off for the almost unknown provincial town of Songkhla in some of the southernmost areas. The beach is here quite "wild", with the rare rock basset. Only some tourists visit this part of Thailand, yet there are plenty of intriguing highlights around town as well as further aside from it.
Patong Beach is considered to be the best beach in Phuket. The place offers great amount of accommodation and plenty of marvelous beach sceneries.
Pattaya Beach is one of the most popular destinations in Thailand. It is famed for its vivid nightlife. And if you are looking for excitement, pleasure and adventure, Pattaya is the place you should visit at least once.
