The prime minister expressed happiness that five Thai beaches were named among the Top 100 Beaches on Earth by the worldbeachguide.com website.
On the list of the world’s best 100 beaches, Koh Kradan in Trang province landed in first place. Railay Beach in Krabi was ranked ninth, Freedom Beach in Phuket was ranked 18th, and Laem Had Beach in Phang-Koh nga’s Yao Yai was ranked 21st. Ao Tanote on Koh Tao in Surat Thani was ranked 44th.
Thailand is highly recognized for its stunning beaches, according to the website. It is stated that Koh Kradan is a pure gem that may be reached without going too far off the beaten path. The island, which is part of the Hat Chao Mai national park, is only a few hours south of Phuket and close to Phi Phi Island. According to the website, Koh Kradan is “a world away” from the mentioned surrounding places because it has all of the natural beauty of the two but none of the tourists or noise.
Prime Minister Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha praised the rating, saying it demonstrated the appeal of Thai maritime tourism attractions among foreign tourists and represented tourists’ trust in these destinations. He thanked tourism-related agencies in both the public and commercial sectors for increasing tourist popularity and supporting tourist-friendly events. He stated that this allowed each province to display its own style, activities, cuisine, traditions, and culture, all of which contributed to Thailand’s tourism.
The Tourism Administration of Thailand is marketing Thai tourism this year with the theme Visit Thailand Year 2023: Incredible New Chapters. The emphasis is on providing travellers with memorable experiences that will last a lifetime.
