thai islands with a baby

Posted by laritl on 26/11/2011 at 02:26

hey,
We're arriving in Thailand this week with an 8 months old baby. We're looking for a nice island to stay in, beautiful beaches etc., but also suitable to travel with a small baby. We've been to Ko Lipe before, and it was great, but the boat ride over was dodgy and wouldn't want to have the same experience with the little one. We were also in Koh Phangan, but didn't like the beaches so much, and the roads to the hotels were awful. Thinking maybe about Koh Kood, or Khao Lak (I know it's not an island). Anyone with a baby could help? Any other recommendations?

There is a small island called Koh Ko Kao not far from Khao Lak that is only a short boat ride that may suit you. It is very quiet and beautiful there. You may want to look at Koh Lanta as well.

Thanks.
We were in Koh Lanta a few years ago. Liked it a lot, but wanted to try something else this time...
Koh ko Kao seems nice. Any other options?

Phuket . It gets a bad rep among some in the backpacker scene because it's developed and some have an affinity for non-developed locals (or perhaps disdain for development, I'm not sure). But, having a little one myself, I know that being close to decent medical facilities is important to me, and Phuket has plenty of quality beaches to go with the lessar ones too.
