    Koh Ngai Thailand – Your Complete Guide to an Island Paradise

    Surrounded by coral reefs and home to swooping hornbills and flying lizards, Koh Ngai is a perfect jungle-clad island in the Andaman Sea and a slice of paradise in Thailand.

In this guide to Koh Ngai we will give you the full lowdown on everything the island has to offer, how to get there, where…

It gives you greater freedom to travel at the time you choose and that best…

It is a popular place with tourists but doesn’t quite enjoy the international renown of towns like Venice and Florence. It is well worth a visit and you should think about including it as a stop on a northern Italy trip, or as a destination in itself. In this guide we will share some…
