Which island to visit with 9 year old in april?

Jump to last reply

We will be in Thailand middle of April, spending three nights in Bangkok and then have one week to travel to one of the islands. Not sure where to go....We want to find beachfront accommodation, bungalow style with Thai character and not a big resorty, chain-like hotel.
Happy to spend up to $200/night.
I was in Koh Samui (Chaweng) 20 years ago and remember it being a small fishing village but have heard that it is quite commercialized and party-ish now. Can we still visit and avoid that by staying outside of chaweng?.
Wanting to do elephant trek, zip-line, beach days with our 9 year old son etc.

Recommendations of what island (phuket, koh samui, or railay) and what accomodations would be helpful! thanks!
