Five Thai beaches top TripAdvisor 2017 Asian beach awards

The TripAdvisor beach awards for 2017 have placed five south Thailand beaches among the Top 25 in Asia. The quintet are all on the western Andaman Sea shoreline with three on Phuket Island and two in Krabi.

Phra Nang Beach and Railay Beach on the Railay Peninsula are Krabi’s star beaches while Patong’s Freedom Beach, Nai Harn and Kata Noi were the champions on Phuket. Nai Harn was fourth, Phra Nang seventh, Kata Noi eighth, Freedom Beach eleventh and Railay was fourteenth.

Nai Harn Beach won kudos for its natural appearance, crystalline waters and colourful fish. Reviewers lauded Pra Nang Beach for its proximity to virgin jungle and the ready availability of canoe tours.

The latest TripAdvisor awards were collated from reviews posted by members of the worldwide travel website. Tourism Authority of Thailand boss Yuthasak Supasorn noted the awards were a tribute to the innate natural beauty of the beaches and the fact they are still unspoilt.

Phuket and Krabi are two of Thailand’s best loved holiday destinations. 12GO ASIA provides multiple options for travel to these two destinations as well as for most other holiday hotspots in Thailand and Southeast Asia.
