We are Flying into Bangkok in mid May. And were thinking of heading straight to Cambodia.We have 4 weeks but were thinking of heading straight to the beach for a week to unwind and relax. I have heard Koh Tonsay is a great place to relax but was wondering what the weather will be like in Mid May. Also what would be the best way to get there from Bangkok. Thanks for any Info..

Welcome to Travelfish!
Ko Tonsay is a very good little spot -- particularly if you're after a low key, no electricity type experience. The accommodation is basic - thatch huts and not much else.
In May you'll have some rain as that month is the start of the wet season. It probably won't be pelting down rain 24 hours a day, but don't be surprised if you get some rain every day.
Koh Tonsay is off the coast of Kep, so from Bangkok you'll most likely head to Phnom Penh first, then onwards to Kep and Ko Tonsay.
The beaches on the mainland around Kep are not great.
Thanks for the Info Somtam2000
Have you any recomendations of relaxed beaches to go to in Asia (quite flexable as flying into Bangkok and willing to go to other countries in Asia, have been to Koh Samui and Koh pnang) where I could expect good weather

Check out the Thailand Weather FAQ to get a good idea of how much rain you can expect in various places. Your best bet that time of year will be in the Gulf of Thailand islands along the peninsula, like Samui, Phanang or Tao. They get less rain because the monsoons dump all their water on Phuket and across the peninsula and don't have much time to pick up water again before crossing over these island. By contrast, Ko Chang gets soaked this time of year.
No matter where you go, it probably still won't rain all day long. Have fun.
Can anyone give me any idea of the cost of staying in one of the beach huts on Koh Tonsay? I am looking for somewhere cheap and laid back to spend a month or 2 before I do my TESOL training in the city.
Is there a bus or coach service from the airport to Kep?
Any advice appreciated.
