The real Thailand is still here, and closer than you think... Here you can talk to friendly natives, swim in clean water, breathe fresh air, sunbathe in a truly quiet cove and eat superlative seafood, far from the tourist herds: Ko Sichang.
You'd never think you were only 100 km from Bangkok, yet you can be on the ferry to this magic island just two hours after you clear Customs. Less than an hour from Pattaya. Beautiful beaches, great snorkeling and biking in spectacular scenery, temples and palace ruins--it's all here. Plus living traditions in a traffic-free way of life whose roots in the past are still deep. Fish, rent a kayak, meditate or learn massage. Enjoy a superb steak with a bottle of fine wine at yesterday's prices. All you have to do is look...

No protests! No smog! Come on down!
