Thailand Island Hopper - East or West??

23 Aug 2013 Carmen asked


Hi guys,

Starting to plan a trip to the Thai islands around February and wondering which side of islands people would recommend most? I was initially drawn to the West tour (can only do one to begin with) and was thinking of adding on my own quick trip to the start/end of it for the Full Moon Party (dates allowing). Does this sound like a good plan, or do the East islands beat the West hands down?

Can anyone share their opinions?

    I’m going West on Jan 18th, but I know what you mean about those full moon parties. I think the West may win in beauty, and the parties will be awesome everywhere.

    I’m going on the West tour on February 15th. From what I’ve gathered is the West tour is a lot more beautiful.
