The largest, wealthiest and most sophisticated of Thailand’s islands offers some of the country's most spectacular seascapes, including the surreal limestone pillars that tower above its bays of translucent, jade-blue water.

Tourism has certainly made its mark here, and the trend in recent years has been towards chic and boutique hotels with fine dining restaurants and spas. For those who enjoy exploring, the island offers a rich and multifaceted cultural heritage influenced by the Chinese, Dutch, Portuguese, French, and British settlers. We find the Sino-Portuguese and Chinese shrines and the rich, vibrant art scene of the old town, a huge draw with street art on almost every corner. An ever-growing number of excellent artisan cafes and experimental cocktail bars serve everything from Dim Sum breakfasts to a multitude of fusion curries throughout the day, and we recommend you make time for a visit.
