The Gulf of Thailand has become a favorite between those who appreciate the raw beauty of the sea. Not only do these islands have spectacular marine visitors, such as the giant Whale Shark, but the dive schools and island inhabitants take coral and ocean health seriously, ensuring a beautiful and flourishing marine environment. This makes a trip to these islands unforgettable because of the clear waters and pristine and clean beaches.

Every island has its own unique vibe and significance. Koh Samui is the perfect luxury jungle-to-ocean island with its many forest-covered mountains and wide-sandy beaches. It also has top quality resorts and restaurants with decks that give you a full view of the island.

In comparison to Koh Samui, Koh Tao is tiny, but has immeasurable beauty. With many small beaches that lead to clear, calm and safe waters, this island awakens the sea-lover in you, and will have you canoeing, snorkeling and even diving before you have time to think about fear. This Island is pure magic!

Now, a perfect tour to one of the many islands in the Gulf of Thailand can be difficult to arrange because of the many options. So we have put together 5 of our favorite, not-to-be-missed tours that will surely make your trip unforgettable and the envy of all your friends. Take a look below!

Trip 1: Snorkel and Relax on The Remote Island of Koh Tan

This tour is the perfect half-day add on. It has adventure and relaxation all in one-perfect island package.

Starting with a scenic longboat cruise, your boat captain will take you through the blue waters to the gorgeous and remote island of Koh Tan.

This island has only a few inhabitants - around 50 local people - and is less touristy than most other Thai islands, ensuring your stay will be tranquil. Spend your time snorkeling and exploring the colorful under-water world of Koh Tan, or lounge around on the secluded beaches surrounded by palm trees and shaded forests.


This trip is perfect for those who want a less crowded beach and sea experience but still want pristine beauty and beautiful snorkeling conditions. Calm, relaxed and beautiful, this is the perfect add on to any Koh Samui, Koh Phangan or Koh Tao stay.

Trip 2: Exciting Safari-Style Koh Samui Excursion by 4x4

Did you know the perfect way to explore Koh Samui is not by tuk-tuk? This big island is covered with jungle and mountainous terrain- it is what makes it the perfect jungle island. So the best way to explore this island is safari-style on a Jeep 4x4 trip!

This fun-filled trip starts with a drive to Wat Phra Yai and Wat  Plai Leam. Wat Phra Yai is famous for its huge, golden Buddha towering above a colorful staircase. This relic’s significance lies in the depiction of Buddha in a tranquil and pure state.This is especially easy to see as the huge monument is etched out against the crystal blue island skies.

Wat Plai Leam has a similar styled Buddha, but it is especially memorable because of the Buddha’s 18 arms reaching out left and right. The temple grounds are filled with beautiful gardens and other sculptures and monuments that narrate the beautiful story of Buddha. It is a must see when visiting Koh Samui.

Next you will visit the Guan Yu Koh Samui Shrine, which is a beautiful and ornate symbol of China’s relationship with Thailand and the cultural exchanges between the two cultures. This 16 meters high shrine is a wondrous symbol of respect and religious reverence.

Going from religion to nature, you will now visit a local Rubber Tree plantation to learn about  rubber-tree tapping methods. After a stop at the shaded plantation you will take a short hike to bathe in a beautiful waterfall and your guide will teach you about the island’s produce and how coconuts form a foundation for its stable economy.

After a delicious lunch at a restaurant with a magnificent view, you will visit a unique garden with magical architectural designs, before a last viewpoint stop on the mountain.

You will end off your tour with a trip to  Wat Tee Pangkorn which protects a giant, golden Buddha called Pra Buddha Dipankara.

This tour is an all-day Island adventure unlike any other! Be sure  to book this if you want island fun with a side of adrenaline!

Trip 3: Sunset Dinner Cruise on a Romantic Chinese Junk

Sunsets in the Gulf of Thailand are legendary! We believe the best way to experience a sunset is by sea. Therefore, we highly recommend this romantic dinner cruise while in Koh Samui.

What makes this specific cruise so significant, is the lavish vessel which will welcome you aboard-the traditional Chinese Junk. This beautiful wooden ship has giant red billowing sails which creates a striking picture in the golden hours of sunset. This makes the trip especially scenic and picturesque, and creates a canvas for perfect instagram pictures of your trip.

To add to this splendor is a delicious sea-food focused buffet of Thai and international dishes and a wonderful atmosphere.

Once the cruise around the island is complete, you will be transferred to your hotel.

Trip 4: A Full Day Exploration of Ang Thong Islands

There is no better way to explore the Ang Thong National Marine Park than by island hopping. This exquisite National Marine Park has some of the best islands in Asia and in order to see more than just two, island hopping is the recommended itinerary for a full day of fun and adventure.

This gorgeous Marine Park located North-West of Koh Samui contains 42 limestone islands and clear water. Healthy and colorful coral reefs wrap these islands with lush beauty creating the perfect environment for tropical fish to flourish in. This means that every dip into the ocean on your island hopping tour will provide many interesting things to see.

Because the islands are less inhabited, the beaches are clear and serene. Perfect for lounging around and catching some tropical sun rays well taking regular dips in the beautiful sea water.

Lunch will be served on one of the secluded beaches surrounded by Emerald forests.

Trip 5: Discover the incredible diving islands of Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan

A favorite among sea-lovers, Koh Tao has become one of the most popular island visits on any perfect Thailand tour. What makes this island so unique is the safe, clean and thriving marine environment it provides. The many dive shops and committed locals take marine conservation to the next level, ensuring tourists, guests and inhabitants of the island take conservation seriously. The result is an island with such beautiful corals, beaches and coves, that it keeps visitors coming back for more.

Right alongside Koh Tao is a beautiful sliver of an island called Koh Nang Yuan. This tiny little island is surrounded by healthy and colorful coral reefs, making it another perfect snorkeling site. These islands are connected by a perfectly white sand bank making it one of the most photographed spots in Thailand.

Your trip will start on Koh Nang Yuan kicking off the day with a lovely morning swim and an early lounge on the beach. Next you will be taken to Koh Tao where you will enjoy an al fresco lunch with views.

Now you will be free to enjoy the rest of the day exploring Koh Tao yourself.

Rent a see-through canoe at one of the local dive shops, and have a fun-sea adventure at one of the local beaches. Pop into one of the health restaurants and ask them to pack a small picnic for a beach snack later, or a walk down the beautiful walking-paths to find some fresh fruit or local street food such as Pad-Thai.

Whatever you decide to do, we promise an afternoon exploring this island is the best add-on to any tour on the side of Thailand.
