Today’s blog comes from STA Travel’s James Greenslade, who has left his Oz homeland for a few months to explore the UK. He can currently be found staring at still light sky at 9:30pm, shaking his head and muttering about witchcraft.
Thailand’s many islands are a staple on the backpacker, flashpacker, gap year, sabbatical, long break, beach holiday, and any other circuit you can think of. And there’s a reason – they’re bloody brilliant.
But the sheer number of versions of paradise to choose from, and hassle of wading through millions of blog posts, articles, reddit threads and Instagram pictures, can leave you in an agony of indecision about which to choose. No more. Check out our quick start guide to the Thai Islands for those who want less time researching, more time sunbathing.
Today’s blog is brought to you by STA’s Alice Tolson, who spends her time pretending that living in Melbourne is amazing, while actually planning on escaping at every opportunity.

Today’s blog comes from Alistair Lee – a Travel Expert from our UK Contact Centre who headed out to Dubai in February as our Emirates Insider.
When I was asked to go out on a trip to Dubai and be followed by a camera crew for a few days I was, well, apprehensive to say the least! Not because of the destination, I’ve been to Dubai 6 or 7 times so I was confident that I could find my way around and show off the best things to do, but being filmed on the beach in my green shorts was a different matter entirely. They are mine by the way, and I know they look great.
