Planning return to a Thai beach. But where?

Jump to last reply

Okay, so now that the Burma planning is well under-way, I need to figure out where our final stop on our December/January vacation will be before we head back home. Know it'll be a beach and know it'll be in Thailand...and that's about it. :)

We'll be flying back from Yangon through Bangkok around January 3rd, so I'm still going to catch a bit of that post-holiday Thai beach madness--but I guess that's not to be avoided.

No real front-runners now although considering Ko Lanta, Krabi, Ko Pha Ngan, possibly Phuket or a return to Phi Phi. Here are some thoughts:

*prefer to fly to Phuket or Krabi...but would consider flying to Samui

*we'll have 3-4 nights at most, so convenience/location I would guess is more important on this trip (no trips to remote island destinations unfortunately)

*I am in *love* with the pictures I see of the Six Senses @ Yao Naoi -- if that gives an accurate idea of the "scenery" we're looking for (which seems like the same scenery one would get around Krabi) --but, alas, I could never ever come close to affording that $900/night price tag at Six Senses. $300-500/max is more like what I'm considering. Might splurge a *bit* more if the place was really special.

*I'm somewhat allergic to the idea of Phuket just because of all the bad preconceived notions I have of it. I know there are places that are off-the-beaten a bit there so those are the only kinds of places we'd consider. But generally speaking, I'm not really looking at Phuket proper.

*Looking for that Ko Phi Phi "powdered sugar" sand. That and the emerald water/amazing snorkeling. Since we've been to Phi Phi already I don't think we'd repeat it (although we might) but definitely looking for a similar look and feel beach and water-wise.

Hopefully this'll is enough for some suggestions/recommendations on islands/hotels. Thanks a bunch, all!
