Bangkok, 27 February, 2017 – Five of Asia’s Top 25 Beaches in 2017 are in Thailand, according to the latest poll of the popular global travel website TripAdvisor, which has just released its annual Travelers’ Choice listings.
Nai Han Beach, Kata Noi Beach, and Freedom Beach at Patong, Phuket were listed as 4th , 8th and 11th , while Phra Nang Cave Beach and Railay Beach in Krabi took 7th and 14th place, respectively in the list of Top 25 Beaches – Asia. The TripAdvisor 2017 Travelers’ Choice beaches are determined based on the quantity and quality of travelers’ reviews and ratings on the TripAdvisor website gathered over a 12-month period.
Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, Governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) said, “The best accolade that Thailand’s beaches have is the fact that so many holiday-makers return to them year after year, knowing that they’ll find peace and beauty, as well as warm seas and swaying palms that make for picture-postcard memories. We are proud that five Thai beaches are so loved by TripAdvisor users and their invaluable feedback helps us to improve these beaches and ensure they’re looked after for tourists and generations to come”.
Nai Harn Beach was praised by TripAdvisor users for its pristine waters, colourful fish and unspoiled state, while Kata Noi stood out for its amazing scenery and peace and quiet. Over in Krabi, the Pra Nang Cave Beach on Ao Nang bay was loved by TripAdvisor reviewers for the jungle environs and the chance to take kayak trips off-shore.
Freedom Beach on the southern end of Patong Beach in Phuket was described as the place to get away from the crowds as it’s “secluded and gorgeous.” Meanwhile, Krabi’s Railay Beach is popular for its caves and unparalleled rock climbing tours, according the TripAdvisor reviews.
