Me and my wife will spend our honey moon in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore this summer. Both of us love the ocean. I am really appreciated if anyone can recommend the best beaches to stay? And any recommendation on resort, hotels, things to do....etc... would really help. Thanks!!! (^,^)

go to Ko Samui!!! it is a beautiful spot in Thailand. it also called Lover's Island. so, it is the best to go. but, it is a very crowed island, full of the forgein tourists.

Ko Chung is also the better place to go, if you want to be quiet. Ko Chung is a local tourist spot. now more forgein tourist come. but, still very nice.

however, i strong recommend Ko PhiPhi. i do think it already recovers from the big stock. i didn't go recently. nice hotel, resort, beautiful beach, and good food. a little bit expensive than the land, but still cheap than other country.

i miss Thailand, i miss Thai food.

good luck!!!

I have just come back from travelling in asia and would recommend Phi Phi island it has some stunning beaches.
It has sort of recovered but there is a big patch of waste land in the middle where there once was beach huts. But the bars and restaurants are buzzing with life.

Another stunning beach was West Railey beach in Krabi, absolutley breath taking and amazing sunsets. This place is more chilled than phi phi and alot less tourists.

I see you are going to Malaysia too, definately go to the Perhentian islands, they are truly paradise.

Koh Tao (great for snorkelling and scuba diving), Koh Samet (great seafood restaurants all along the beachfront) and Koh Phi Phi (for chilling out).
Although Koh Samui has gorgeous beaches too I found it a bit too touristy for my liking.

Would definately agree about the Perhentain Islands. They are possibly the most stunning islands I have ever visited.

I'm sure that where ever you go in Thailand you will have a great time, it's a really beautful place, lovely people and great food!

Would heartily agree regarding Koh Phi Phi - idylic really, but l must note that in Singapore there aren "beaches" in Sentosa island as long as you dont mind the huge oil tanks sailing by!! Best to stick to shopping in Singapore!
