Phuket vs. Krabi for Late November

Need a few days a beach time in Thailand for the last week in November. Where to go? Looking for best weather. Was thinking of Phuket or Krabi are these good choices? Anyplace else to consider? Don't want a lot of travel time after a flight to one of these destinations from Bangkok.

Weather in both will be similar, should be hot and dry. Krabi has beaches and scenary, nightlife is nothing more than some bars and restaurants. Only a couples of flights per day. Phuket has a choice of either quiet beaches or busy beaches, beach areas with a few resorts, a few local restaurants, or Kata or Karon that are busier with more restaurants, bars, cafes, or Patong Beach which is a busy packed resort with vibrant nightlife. Bangkok to Phuket averages about 16 flights per day(!!)Thai Airways, Bangkok Airways and Phuket Air but I would advise Thai Airways as they have about 12+ flights, the others have just a few.
Closer to Bangkok you have Pattaya which is lively but the beach in not much good or you can go 20 minutes further to Jomtien Beach which is a busy resort and average beach, but both are just about 1 hr 30 minutes by taxi on a high speed expressay, no need for a flight.
Hope this gives you some ideas.
