In Phuket you can experience a hedonistic lifestyle while relaxing on miles and miles of soft sand beaches alongside the sparkling aquamarine waters of the Andaman Sea. It is the perfect place to practice water sports or simply eat and drink in the many restaurants and bars that line the sand.
Another beach that became famous on the big screen, Maya Bay played a central role in the 2000 film ‘The Beach’ starring Leonardo di Caprio. Beautiful white sand surrounded by coral reefs and limestone rocks; It turned out to be the perfect location, although the landscaping done by Fox productions did not appeal to the local filmmakers. It seems that nature has now regained its birthright, the 2004 tsunami wiped out most of Fox Productions’ gardens and returned it to its natural state.
A major tourist destination, Kanchanaburi has truly magnificent scenery with waterfalls, forests, rivers, and caves dating back to the time of Neolithic man.

Koh Phi Phi Don

Haad Rin, Koh Pha Ngan
