Travelers from all around the world flock the Caribbean to experience the soft white sand and the warm blue waters. Looking at Thailand, on the other hand, you realize there much similarity with the Caribbean. In fact, the peak seasons for these two destinations nearly overlap. Both have warm blue waters, soft white sand, and Monet-worthy sunsets.

Thailand is usually more exotic and less costly while the Caribbean is closer to American travelers and usually more friendly when it comes to the English language. Most of the people who visit the Caribbean use Giant, cruise ships and it’s usually and exciting experience in itself. On the contrary, the transportation in Thailand mainly involves riding on narrow long-tail boats.

When should you Visit?

The peak season for both destinations usually runs between December and March. This is the time when most parts of Europe and North America are shivering. The weather in the Caribbean and Thailand is normally moderate and dry during this time. If you want to enjoy low prices in the Caribbean, consider traveling in late April. However, note that the hurricane season is just around the corner as it starts in early June and ends in November. In Thailand, visiting between June and October won’t be a good idea due to the unimaginable humidity levels and continuous rain. Plan to visit in the months of April and May as it is warmer and the prices are lower.

So, which one between the Caribbean and Thailand offers more options for secluded beaches? Well, you’ll find secluded beaches in some of the Caribbean Islands including Los Roques (Venezuela), St. Martin, and Isla de Providencia in Colombia. However, Thailand has more. You might want to spend some time on Koh Kood, which is one of “Thailand’s last unspoiled islands” according to the Guardian.  The island is located in the Gulf of Thailand. The Travel Channel one time referred to the Koh Lao Liang Island, located on the Andaman side, as one of Thailand’s “best-kept secrets.” These are just some of the secluded islands in Thailand.

When it comes to party spots, the Caribbean seems to take the lead. Travelers can always have parties on the beach on islands such as Puerto Rico, St. Lucia, St. Martin, Aruba, the Jamaican town of Negril and Trinidad.
