If you are looking to escape to some tropical paradise as soon as the lockdown ends, you certainly wouldn’t be the only person doing so, and with so many destinations, it can be difficult to make up your mind. A lot depends on what you want from the holiday; if laying on a sun-lounger poolside with your favourite cocktail is your idea of heaven, an online search would help you find the right resort.
There are so many reasons why people keep going back to Thailand, which is affectionately known as the Land of Smiles, thanks to the Buddhist population who live for the moment, and if its white sandy beaches and crystal-clear oceans you’re looking for, book a Phi Phi resort bungalow and you will have an amazing holiday in a real tropical paradise. Phi Phi Islands are accessible from Phuket or Krabi, a quiet fishing town on the Andaman Sea, and the marine life is something to experience, with Whale Sharks and Bottle-Nose Dolphins regular visitors on the Phi Phi reefs.
Last Minute Deals
Things happen and people have to cancel their holiday plans, and if you’re lucky, you might stumble upon a last-minute deal and save yourself up to 40%, so do spend some time surfing the Internet if you are flexible with your dates. Hotels and resorts are having to compete for the business, which is good news for the tourist, and when you search online, it is very easy to compare deals.
If you’re going to a tropical island for a couple of weeks, there are a few essentials that you should pack, which include the following:
- Sunscreen and a hat.
- Electrical adapter.
- Light cotton shirts and a pair of long pants.
- Mosquito repellent.
- A good pair of hiking boots.
- Swimming & snorkeling gear.
All of the above should help ensure that your tropical break is everything you want it to be, and be very careful with sun exposure if you have fair skin, as it is so easy to get sunburn.
Do Some Online Research
You certainly don’t want to spend all your time on the beach, and there are some great attractions in the South of Thailand, with Koh Samui not far from Phuket, with the full moon party island of Koh Pan Gahn, where all the gap year students party hard until the early hours of the morning. The city of Nakhon Sri Thammarat is only a few hours from Phuket and this is the perfect place to see how the Thais live, and this non-tourist area has some stunning temples.
