There are about a dozen islands in Pattaya area. Below we gave a briefly description for some of them. As you may noticed in our packages we don’t specify which exactly island you will go. This is because every time when we go to the sea we try to choose the best place for visiting, and it could vary depending on weather and other conditions. Any way the first island we will choose is Ko Khram because it’s the most beautiful place to be. If we can’t go there for some reasons the next island we choose is Ko Rin. There are more chance to meet tour groups but this island is also beautiful. In other cases we can go to any another island of Pattaya.
