Koh Sichang, the hidden gem just outside Bangkok.
This small fishing island with a population of only 5,000 people is your easiest option if you want to get the island experience of Thailand while staying in the heart of Bangkok. Located only 1.5h from downtown Bangkok it really is the best option for a getaway from the city life. The islands tourism is mostly local with very few people there during the week. It’s quiet, it’s beautiful with a nice range of restaurants and hotels. No massive resorts or chains.
