Is this too much in one trip? Where do you suggest to start and finish the trip? Any advice would be so helpful! Glad to hear our Thailand honeymoon guide is your go-to resource! I would say yes that is too much for one trip. Getting from Koh Lipe to Koh Samui would be a whole day.
Safe travels to Thailand.

We are planning on going to Thailand for our honeymoon in may next year. Hoping to spend 2 weeks exploring Thailand. We are arriving in Bangkok and spend a few nights there as your guide suggested. We are then flying to Hat Yai to get to Koh Lipe. Hi Kylie, Koh Lanta and Krabi would be good options. Krabi or Phuket would probably the place you would need to head to after your time in the islands to catch a flight back to Bangkok.
Koh Phi Phi is also beautiful, but more touristy. Have fun in Thailand and safe travels! I could really use some advice! We are a group of two young couples doing a 2-week trip planned for November to Thailand. Could you help narrow this down to a realistic 6-day itinerary? We love Koh Lipe and always recommend it. Phi Phi islands are stunning, but busier and more touristy.
If you want to do Ko Pha ngan and Koh Lipe I would fly directly to each of them from your other destinations to maximize you time. Hi there guys thanks for your comprehensive guide its very helpful. We are looking at possibly going to Koh Lipe for a few nights in Late August can you tell me the best way to travel there from Bangkok. This is a common route and should be easy to arrange in advance or when you are there. Enjoy Koh Lipe! Is this possible and what island would you recommend?
How many days are you spending in Koh Lipe? I am having such a hard time planning my Thailand honeymoon. We want to go for 2 weeks maybe a few days more — and definitely to start in Bangkok and visit Chiang Mai. We are not huge partiers, we love food and want to relax and explore the beauty of the country. So my question is: if you could pick two island locations to base ourselves out of and then if we can do day trips to other islands from there, that would be great! Another option would be Koh Samui as there are other islands nearby.
I would avoid Phuket and Phi Phi if I were you. Thank you so much for this very considerate guide that helps many such as myself, who are extremely confused trip planners…. My husband and I are finally getting time to travel for our honeymoon and are considering some time from end june to august. Every island has different ferry schedules. We know the most about Koh Lipe. If you are traveling to Koh Lipe during May-October the only ferry service is from Pak Bara because it is the rainy season.
The rainy season is different every year.
I would make note that not all hotels and restaurants are opening during the rainy season. What a great guide!

I have no idea where to go now. I was going to base myself either in Krabi or Phi Phi and explore the islands around. Glad we could help. There are so many amazing islands in Thailand it is hard to pick. It will rain most likely every day but possibly a quick short afternoon shower, which is a great time to go get a massage or happy hour. Let us know if you have any other Thailand questions. Safe travels. This list is awesome, but also very overwhelming.
I would like to spend about a week to a week in a half exploring the islands. Reading this made me want to explore them all, what islands would you recommend for, what seems to be such a short time?!
Every island is so different. It really depends on what you want to do, what time of year you are visiting and your budget.

This is really great info. We are planning an island hop from Lipe to Krabi for 2 weeks and this has really helped. Beautiful guide! Helped me alot figuring out how I will be doing my trip into Thailand! I can go hiking,drink and hangout on a beach with new friends and explore for 3 days with baht! I just kinda felt cheap reading some part of this guide. Hi Sylvio, glad the post helped.
Thailand is a great option for all budgets, you can have an amazing time without spending a lot of money. Hope you enjoy your trip, safe travels!

Great Guide! Are there any links to the places to stay on these islands? I would love to visit about 5 island in a 2 week span. Thailand Island hopping is the best way to see the best Thailand beaches. It is possible to see 5 islands in 2 weeks. We will have two weeks in Thailand and would like to head south and visit 3 islands after our arrival in Bangkok looks like Koh Lipe is a must. There are so many amazing places to choose from in Thailand so this island guide is great!
