Nomadic Boys – Koh Adang or Koh Tarutao
During our trip to Thailand’s Southwest Andaman islands in February 2015, we wanted to spend a few days experiencing a Robinson Crusoe like island, cut off from it all, especially after the crowds of Koh Lipe and Koh Tao.
The Southwestern most islands of Thailand sit just before the Malaysian border and with the exception of touristy and over developed Koh Lipe, they form part of the Tarutao National Marine Park. These include the larger and uninhabited islands like Koh Adang and Koh Tarutao.
Don’t get us wrong, we love partying, we love being tourists and would even go far as to say we love joking and posing for photos with all the coach loads of Chinese tourists. We got all of this plus a beautiful beach on Koh Lipe. But we always had this romantic image of our little paradise getaway from everything, which could be visited on our backpacker budget.
