Krabi? Phuket? Phi Phi?

Jump to last reply

Hi all! I spent a wonderful few months in Thailand and Southeast Asia and am trying to put together an itinerary and tips for someone who will be travelling late October. I planned Bangkok and Chiang Mai based on my experience, but I never made it to the Islands and am not sure what to advise. I heard from other travellers in Thailand that they hated Phuket, but since my friend and her mom only have 3 days for the islands before returning to Bangkok for their flight home, would Phuket actually be a good base?

Otherwise I was going to recommend Krabi. From either place I would recommend a day snorkeling tour in Phi Phi.

Thoughts?

Thanks!
