1 week in the south

Jump to last reply

hey all. my old man and i are pretty set on our first trip to thailand and cambodia next week. we have almost everything booked- except the last week. we are struggling with where to go...

we are pretty committed to the andaman sea side... and want to stick with 2 different places. we are into snorkeling, good food, beautiful views and relaxed vibe. thinking somewhere south of phuket then maybe up somewhere closer to the similian/surin islands for snorkeling. my old man was throwing around koh lak and ranong (which looks like we could even take a quick trip over to bhurma from). koh phi phi looks amazing but i don't want to be smothered in people. we recently went to playa del carmen, mexico, and HATED the beach there- but loved a little beach up the coast that still had tourists and the like- just didn't feel like the jersery shore.

any thoughts or suggestions? we are thinking mid range but willing to spend for the amazing place right on the beach. maybe 1 island completely remote (we can rough it) and one island with a few more options of places to eat and good location for day trips?

thanks for any help!!!
