10 Best Islands in Asia

by Travelbag on 04 November 2019, 09:11AM 10 Best Islands in Asia Alex Garland’s 1996 novel, The Beach – and the subsequent film – kick-started our quest to find the perfect Asian island retreat. Across Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam, there are thousands of islands to choose from, but Chris Coplans has whittled it down to just 10. From vast country-sized islands to tiny specs of land, these beautiful spots have something for everyone. So if you’re thinking about booking an island escape, one of these is bound to tick all your boxes. Our only advice would be to check the seasons before you book. The entire region is subject to monsoons but there are in fact two distinct rainy seasons – so, while it might be wet and windy in the Gulf of Thailand, there’ll be glorious sunshine on the Andaman coast. Take a lo...

Each Caribbean isle has its own unique character and attractions – but, with so many islands to choose from, it can be hard to know which one is right for you. Whether you’re looking for romantic beaches, ...

Best Beaches to Visit Instead of Maya Bay

Best Beaches to Visit Instead of Maya Bay

With its white sands, clear seas and green-clad cliffs, it’s easy to see how Maya Bay became Thailand’s poster child. The Koh Phi Phi islands’ bay shot to fame when it starred as the dreamy backdrop of The Beach in 2000. But Maya Bay’s must-see status proved to be both a blessing and a curse, as this once-pristine cove attracted millions of visitors. Sadly, the island&rsq...
