    Hi all - my girlfriend & I are going to have 6 days spare in Thailand. The rest of our holiday is planned, but there's 6 days in the middle after we finish up North, and before we start on a sailing trip. We're looking for somewhere with nice beaches, but also must be places to chill out, but also places were there are people. Not looking for Ibiza, but just somewhere where there is a bit of life at night, and things to do - boat trips, excursions, water sports, things to see.

    If you were us, where would you go to? I heard the south and west is nicer, but will be wetter - what do u think?

    Hi graham,

    Welcome to Travelfish!

    A good option which will probably fit the bill and is just three hours from Bangkok is Ko Samet.

    Graham,

    I agree that Ko Samet might be exactly what you are looking for. There are many different beaches on the island, all with their own personality and within a reasonably short walk from one another. Check out the listings here and see which beach looks the best for you. Mid-week is particularly great there. With six days, you might like to try a few different locations on the island just for fun.

    Depending on where you will be starting that sailing trip, I might recommend a few other locations too. One place I enjoyed for long weekend getaways was the Hua Hin area. It was always more of a family rather than a backpacker hangout, but my favorite part was the infinite variety of fabulous restaurants to fill the evenings. It's fun to stroll past the places looking at menus before deciding where to dine.

    The island, Koh Chang, is lovely. According to my brother who has lived there for years, it has remained unchanged. Lots of shops and restaurants - and beaches, of course. We stayed at the Siambay Resort - a ways further, but off the beaten path... there are lots of bungalos available, a nice restaurant on site, and plenty more down the beach. We made a reservation for 1500 baht per night; it was 1200 when we got there; 1000 upon checking out. Gotta love the Thais...
