Stay in Khao Lak or Phuket

Jump to last reply

Our family of 4 with kids 18 and 15 have 4 days for the beach portion of our whirlwind Thailand trip. Trying to decide if we should stay in Khao Lak or Phuket. We will want to do a day trip of island hopping/snorkelling and another half day trip kayaking. If Khao Lak we can snorkel the Similan Islands and kayak the Ao Phang-Nga inlet. If Phuket it will be island hopping to Ko Phi-Phi area.
We value daytime activity over nightlife but do like to enjoy good food. Quaint/cultural setting over resort monstrosities. Examples: Maui over Waikiki or Negril over Montego Bay.
Any input would be much appreciated. We will already have stayed in Bangkok, Siem Reap and Chiang Mai at this point.
