Amazing Koh Samui

Robin Puskas

One of the most popular beach destinations in Southern Thailand is Koh Samui.  The country's second largest island, it lies on the opposite (eastern) side of the mainland from its largest island, the somewhat better-known Phuket.  While Koh Samui's interior is jungle, its beaches are some of the finest in Southeast Asia.  Contributor Robin Puskas used a DJI drone to create this mesmerizing aerial view of this bit of paradise in the Gulf of Thailand.


Thai Islands Reveal

Christian CUVELIER

Thailand's Krabi province is situated due east of the island of Phuket, in the southern part of the country.  The province is perhaps best known for the dozens of small islands which lie off its coast in Phang Nga Bay.  Top contributor Christian Cuvelier used a drone to create this epic continuous "reveal" shot of these islands, basically sandstone rocks which appear to tower over the surrounding sea despite their small size.  


Phuket 2017


Phuket is both an island (the largest in Thailand) and a province consisting of Phuket and about 30 smaller islands in the area.  It sits far down the Malaysian Peninsula from the rest of Thailand.  It has become, in recent years, one of the world's top beach destinations, often compared to Bali in Indonesia.  Contributor MartinD used a DJI Mavic Pro to shoot this remarkable aerial tour of Phuket on a trip to the tropical island in 2017.  


Koh Phi Phi in 4K


Thailand's Koh Phi Phi islands stand atop most lists of the best spots in the country, especially since becoming the shooting location of the movie The Beach starring Leonard DiCaprio in 2000.  Distinguished by large limestone rocks. the islands are situated in the Andaman Sea, in the Krabi province.  Contributor Agrippa907th used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to aerially capture these stunning islands.  The video also includes drone footage of Railay, which lies a bit to the north.


Drone in Thailand - Phuket


Contributor and drone pilot RoamwithJohn hails from South Korea.  He traveled to the fabled Thai province of Phuket with his DJI Mavic Pro drone to make this video.  The piece beautifully captures many spots around the island, which is now connected to the mainland of Thailand via the Sarasin Bridge.  While Phuket was decimated by the 2004 tsunamai, it has made great strides toward recovery and is now home to about 600,000 people.  


The Chalong Temple in Phuket


Thailand's Phuket province has nearly 30 Buddhist temples, a testament to the religious sentiment of the island.  The most famous of these is the Wat Chalong Temple, which sits above the town of Chalong.  It was built in the late 19th century in honor of two monks who led political struggles in the company at that time.  Contributor Raivig used a drone to capture the beauty of this important religious landmark from a drone.  


Sunset on Railay

Railay is one of Thailand's best known beach areas, sitting in the southern tip of the country between the cities of Krabi and Ao Nang.  It is accessable only by boat due to the high cliffs surrounding the area.  In this video, top contributor Christian Cuvelier flew his DJI Phantom 4 Professional drone over the area at sunset, creating a stunning aerial view of one of the more iconic looking beach spots in all of Southeast Asia.

Kata Beach is one of a series of beaches along the western shore of Phuket.  It sits towards the southern end of what is essentially a new gold coast, with some of the most desirable beaches anywhere in Southeast Asia.  Contributor Alp Karagulle traveled all the way across Asia from Turkey to Thailand with a drone, and used it to create this very fun-to-watch aerial tour of an emerging tropical paradise beach destination.
