#CoralIsland #Phuket #Thailand #JessKalinowsky #FriendsTravelWestHollywoodCa

The clear calm waters off #CoralIsland offer a relaxing oasis and the perfect location for venturing underwater and exploring the wonderful world beneath the surface. Head to the island, named because of the reef that is situated close by, where you’ll descend into the water and explore the amazing dive site below. Whether you’re a certified diver or just beginning, this site is a perfect spot with a light current, good visibility and plethora of marine life at no more than 10 meters deep. Amongst the coral, you can expect to see diverse types of fish such as angel fish, frogfish, scorpion fish, turtles and a variety of nudibranchs. #Dive in and enjoy this amazing experience under the #Andaman Sea.  #Dive deep into a colourful underwater world with the coral island dive from #MaiKhao & #NaiYang beach.

Mai Khao Beach (หาดไม้ขาว)
Mai Khao Beach is located on the northwest coast of #Phuket. The main beach which stretches a bit over 10km is still much less developed as the other destinations. Mainl as it is part of the Sirinat National Park and the only significant constructions along it is Phuket International Airport as well as a few high end resorts. Although the sand is not the finest, and perhaps the coarsest in Phuket, the beach is so positively secluded that visitors can enjoy endless privacy.

Both due to the isolation and the National Park status, Mai Khao is a very popular camping spot . At the far north of the beach, where the waters from #PhangNgaBay meet the #Andaman Sea, surfers sometimes ride the waves, otherwise the beach is mostly devoid of activities except fishing and hiking. Due to a sharp drop off in to the Andaman Sea, swimming may be limited in the low season due to strong underwater currents.

Mai Khao is as well where the endangered giant leatherback turtles come to lay their eggs in the spring. In addition, every year young hatchlings are released into the sea in an effort to repopulate the sea.

Nai Yang Beach (หาดในยาง)

Is a very popular beach for local and residents alike. Only located 5 minutes south of Phuket International Airport, it is as well where the National Park office is located. The beach itself is on a long curving bay lined with casurina trees that provide shade to picnicker.

The large coral reef is home to many different species of fish, and Nai Yang is well known as a site where #seaturtles come to lay their eggs during the period from November to February; unfortunately the population of these Sea Turtles has dropped off greatly. Aside of some informal restaurant and bars in the sand – there is not much of evening entertainment available to the visitor. All very laid back, it recalls the early days of Phuket Island, before it made it to be listed in nearly every program.

Family-Friendly Travel to Thailand at the Banyan Tree Phuket

Family-Friendly Travel to Thailand at the Banyan

Tree Phuket JESS Kalinowsky FriendsTravel LLP

“The family market is booming”  to the Banyan Tree Phuket, which opened 22 new family-friendly villas. As quoted in a recent article  Hoff describes the new trend: “We get people who came here years ago on their honeymoon or as a couple, who are now coming back with their kids in tow.” Amenities have thus been tailored to respond to guests’ needs; there are two kids’ clubs and babysitting on demand.

The family villas are as much paradise for the ‘rents as they are for the kids. Designed with two pools surrounded by tropical gardens and two bedrooms, the villas boast a high-tech entertainment room that’s described as “the first of its kind on the luxury market.” A large daybed can sleep six kids, a massive flat-screen TV projects all kinds of fun DVD entertainment, and the room can easily double as a workspace for parents who can’t unwire from the grid.

Pint-sized guests are in hog heaven,  “The children’s room might be the crowd-puller…The children have a secret walled garden and electric curtains that can be operated from their twin beds.”

Still a Honeymoon Paradise, but a Family Paradise as well!

Thailand Travel Guide

Royal Grand Palace, Bangkok

Royal Grand Palace, Bangkok © Thailand Tourist Board

From idyllic, unspoilt beaches with turquoise seas and pure, white sands to bustling cities sporting exotic markets and a vibrant, colourful nightlife, it is easy to see why Thailand has become one of the most popular tourist destinations for the adventurous and young at heart.

A turbulent, and often bloody history has left Thailand scattered with ruins, forgotten temples and deserted cities that reveal a rich tableau of past eras to those willing to explore.

Thailand’s booming tourist economy, driven largely by Hollywood (the country has been the setting for The Man with the Golden Gun, The Bridge over River Kwai and most recently Alex Garland’s The Beach) has resulted in the opening of a number of expensive and luxurious international hotels. Those looking for the rustic splendour of the beaches and islands will find plenty of cheap and comfortable accommodation.

The size and geographical diversity of Thailand provides for a variety of activities. Snorkelling, diving and a host of watersports are very popular around the Islands, while inland enthusiasts can trek into the mountains or cycle across the flat river areas of the northeast.
