East Coast Holidays: An Overview

White sands, gin clear waters and dramatic coastal scenery, the east coast of Thailand is home to a number of top-class beach resorts. The beaches are nothing short of superb, and there are some fantastic places to stay. The East Coast beaches are rightly famous and combined with superb Thai hospitality and hotels, they are a dream destination.

The coastal resort of Hua Hin lies half an hour's flight south of Bangkok, overlooking the Gulf of Thailand. This is Thailand's original beach 'resort' and in contrast to some of the country's others, with their bright lights and nightlife, Hua Hin remains a much more peaceful, family-oriented place.

As well as beaches and watersports, activities in the vicinity of Hua Hin include trekking, elephant riding and golf. Hua Hin town itself has good shopping, including a nightly street market.

Think Thailand idyll, think Koh Samui, the archetypal tropical island. One of the first islands to be discovered by us Westerners, Koh Samui is still a firm luxury beach holiday favourite, especially due to its accessibility - it has direct flights from Bangkok, Hong Kong and Singapore. Alongside picture perfect white beaches, Koh Samui has plenty of hidden coves and traditional Thai fishing villages, perfect for exploring.
